      editions, see SLE 2011<http://sle2011.cilap.es>, SLE

      PROCEDURE. The deadline for the submission of workshop proposals is 1
      December 2013. The address for submission is
      sle@...<mailto:sle@...>. Notification of acceptance/rejection
      will be given by 15 December 2013. After a workshop proposal has been
      accepted, the convenors will be requested to invite their participants
      to submit their full abstracts by 15 January 2014. These full
      abstracts will be evaluated individually by the Scientific Committee
      and the convenors.

      The deadline for all abstracts (for the general session, the poster
      session and the workshops) is 15 January 2014. Notification of
      acceptance will be given by 31 March 2014.

      Abstracts should not exceed 500 words (exclusive of references) and
      should clearly state research questions, approach, method, data and
      (expected) results.

      Abstracts should be registered and submitted via the Submit Abstract
      where you can upload an attachment. Abstracts should not mention the
      presenter(s) nor their affiliations or addresses. Only references
      mentioned in the text can be listed. Abstracts should have the same
      title as the entry submitted via the Submit abstract form. Check the
      final abstract carefully before submission. Abstracts will not be
      edited for typing, spelling, or grammatical errors after submission.

      Layout requirements for abstracts:
      • Abstracts must be single-spaced and fully justified. The standard
      font will be Calibri, size 10.
      • The margins will be 2.54 top/bottom and 1.91 left/right (Moderate
      in MS Word).
      • References will have a hanging indent of 1.27 cm.

      Please submit the abstract as a Word document. If it contains special
      characters, please send a PDF version to sle@...

      ORGANIZING A WORKSHOP. Whereas general session papers can deal with
      any topic in linguistics, workshop papers take into account the topic
      of the workshop proposal, and are usually pre-selected by the workshop

      Workshop proposals should contain:

      (i) a 1000 word description of the topic (including the research
      questions to be addressed)
      (ii) a (provisional) list of workshop participants and 300 word
      abstracts of their papers.

      We encourage workshop convenors to distribute an open call for papers
      on the LinguistList (please, announce your CFP as a session of SLE
      2014) and other fora in October and November 2013.

      Since we want conference participants to be able to attend individual
      workshop presentations, SLE workshops have to be compatible with the
      main conference schedule. This means that the format of the workshops
      must be organized around 30 minute presentations (20 min. + 10 min.
      discussion). Workshops ideally contain 10 or 15 slots (corresponding
      to 1 or 1.5 days); each workshop ideally comprises:

      1. An introductory paper by the convenor(s) or by a keynote speaker,
      which summarizes previous research, specifies the approach(es) to be
      taken and sets the scope of the papers to be presented.
      2. Eight papers (1 day) or thirteen papers (1.5 day).
      3. A slot for final discussion on the topics covered by the papers,
      methodological issues and questions for future research.

      Further details can be discussed with the SLE Conference

      POSTERS. The next SLE meeting will hold a poster session of an hour
      for both senior and junior researchers. In order to foster
      interaction, all other sessions will be suspended during the poster
      session. Posters may remain available during the rest of the
      conference. The maximum size of the poster is 1.10 m (vertical) x 1 m
      (horizontal). For more information about how to make a good poster,
      click here<http://people.eku.edu/ritchisong/posterpres.html>.

      MULTIPLE PAPERS. One person may submit a single-authored abstract, a
      single-authored abstract and a co-authored one (not as first author)
      or two co-authored abstracts (only one as first author). Note that
      keynote papers within workshops count as ordinary papers.
      Presentations will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes question time.

      EVALUATION. Workshop proposals contain the names of convenors and
      participants and will be evaluated and ranked by the 5 officers of the
      SLE Scientific Committee. All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously
      by three referees. Abstracts submitted to the general session and to
      the poster session will be evaluated by three members of the
      Scientific Committee. Workshop papers receive two evaluations by
      Scientific Committee members and one by the workshop convenors. The
      threshold for acceptance is the same for general session, poster and
      workshop abstracts. The acceptance of a paper depends on the quality
      of the abstracts.


      There will be a prize for the best oral presentation by a PhD student,
      a prize for the best oral presentation by a postdoc and a prize for
      the best poster (see SLE
      2012<http://www.sle2013.eu/best-presentation-awards-2012> and SLE
      2013<http://sle2014.eu/best-presentation-awards-2013> awards).

      For current purposes, PhD students are students that have not
      completed their PhD before the conference. Postdocs must have
      completed their PhD not earlier than January 2011. A nominated paper
      may be co-authored; in such a case the nominee will be the first

      Applicants are invited to mark the option referring to the prize when
      they register their abstract. On the basis of the ranking of the
      abstracts, the Scientific Committee will set up an internal shortlist
      with nominees for the prizes.

      Members of the Editorial Board of Folia Linguistica (Historica) and
      the Scientific Committee will decide who will be awarded the 1st prize
      of 500 Euros in each category as well as the 2nd and 3rd prize, which
      is a three-year SLE


      Registration will start on 1 April 2014. SLE meetings are member only
      conferences. That is, all participants with a paper in the program
      will have to be members. The early bird conference fee for members
      will be 170 Euros.

      Become a member of the Societas Linguistica
      Europaea<http://www.societaslinguistica.eu/membership/join.php> and
      get a discount.


      There will be a reception in the city centre (included in the
      registration fee), a city walk and a conference dinner. On Sunday
      afternoon there will be a post-conference excursion. Further
      information will be given in the second circular.


      Poznan is easily accessible by air, road, train or bus. It is located
      about half way between Warsaw (280 km) and Berlin (240 km), and there
      are good, frequent rail connections between those two cities and
      Poznan. Poznan's Lawica airport has frequent daily connections with
      Warsaw (LOT Polish Airlines), as well as Copenhagen (SAS), Munich and
      Frankfurt (LOT and Lufthansa). Poznan is also served by low-cost
      carriers that fly directly from a number of cities in the UK, Spain,
      Italy, Sweden and other European countries.
