      > Abstracts on any topic in typology are invited for oral presentations,
      > posters, and a limited number of theme sessions. Non-members of ALT may
      > submit abstracts but will be expected to join ALT in order to present a
      > paper at the meeting.
      >
      > Deadline for receipt of abstracts: January 15, 2013 (papers/posters) or
      > December 10, 2012 (theme sessions: see below)
      >
      > Notification of acceptance: February 28, 2013
      >
      > There may be up to four theme sessions, and two poster sessions. Papers
      > are anonymously reviewed; in line with previous meetings, the committee
      > will strive to ensure that selection is rigorous but that acceptance
      > rate is not too low.
      >
      > *Categories of submission*
      >
      > (1) Oral presentation (single or multiple author): Timing will depend on
      > the number of papers accepted for presentation and will most probably
      > range between 20 and 25 minutes per paper, plus 10 minutes for discussion.
      >
      > (2) Poster: One or more poster sessions will be organized, depending on
      > demand.
      >
      > (3) Oral/poster: This means you prefer an oral presentation but can also
      > present a poster. If there are more good abstracts than we can
      > accommodate, the Programme Committee will schedule some as posters. If
      > you choose either category "poster" or "oral/poster", this will probably
      > increase your chances of acceptance.
      >
      > (4) Theme session: Theme sessions will in general consist of three to
      > seven oral presentations on a common theme. They are proposed by a
      > theme-session convenor. Proposals consist of a maximally 500-word
      > description plus a preliminary list of up to six potential authors (with
      > titles) who have expressed serious interest in participating. If
      > accepted, a theme session will be listed in the final call for abstracts
      > (late December 2012), so that linguists who were not initially contacted
      > by the convenor also have a chance to participate. Abstracts submitted
      > to a theme session will be evaluated jointly by the Programme Committee
      > and the convenor.
      >
