For further information, including the call for papers for both the main

is 1st April 2016.

In addition to individual abstracts, the LAGB main session welcomes proposals
for themed sessions (more details are available in the call for papers).

Call for Papers and Themed Sessions:

The LAGB welcomes submissions on any topic in the field of linguistics. We
particularly welcome papers from areas of linguistics that have not been well
represented in previous meetings in order to capture the diversity of
linguistics research currently undertaken in the UK and beyond.

All abstracts will be blind-peer-reviewed by an international committee of
reviewers. Both members and non-members are invited to offer papers for the
meeting. The length for papers delivered at the LAGB 2016 meeting is 20
minutes (plus 10 minutes discussion).

The deadline for submissions is Friday 1 April 2016. Notification of
acceptance will be made in May 2016.

Abstracts can be submitted to be included in the general sessions, the
workshop on Morphological Zeroes or as part of a themed session (see below).
We also welcome submissions for the general session that cover themes related
to the LAGB workshop on Advances in Linguistic Theory Through Computation.
Abstracts for the LAGB workshop on Morphological Zeroes should be clearly
marked as being submitted for that workshop. If submitted abstracts are not
successful in being selected for that workshop they will also be considered
for the general session.
