Contact Person: Luka Szucsich

Call Deadline: 30-Jun-2016  July 15, 2016

The Slavic Department of Humboldt University, Berlin is pleased to announce the 12th European Conference on Formal Description of Slavic Languages (FDSL-12) held on December 8-10, 2016.

The biannual conference has been hosted in turn by the University of Leipzig and University of Potsdam since 1995, with the University of Göttingen joining in organizing the conference in 2011. This year, for the first time, the Humboldt University will host FDSL. At the same time, the rhythm of the biannual conference changes, so that FDSL will from now on take place in even years.

Invited speakers (confirmed):
Klaus Abels (London)
Vera Gribanova (Stanford)
Manfred Krifka (Berlin)
Barbara Tomaszewicz (Frankfurt/Wrocław)
Igor’ Yanovich (Tübingen)

Abstracts are invited for 30-minute talks (20-minute presentation plus 10 minutes for discussion) on Slavic syntax, morphology, phonology, semantics, psycholinguistics and computational linguistics.

We particularly encourage the submission of abstracts on formal approaches to second language acquisition and multilingualism in/including Slavic. SLA and multilingual situations are characterized by the co-existence of two (or more) mental grammars and lexicons in the same individual, which leads to manifold research questions: How do two (or more) concurrent linguistic systems influence each other? What changes are instigated by the multilingual situation in formal grammar, lexicon, and language use? What are promising methods of research into SLA and multilingualism? What are the consequences for language endorsement and teaching? A special session on this vivid area of research will be part of the main conference.

Additionally, there will be a special pre-conference workshop on ”Formal and experimental semantics and pragmatics” to be announced in a separate CFP.
