The purpose of this conference is to bring together scholars to share original linguistic research that analyzes Spanish and Portuguese data or data from contact situations between Spanish, Portuguese and other languages.

We invite abstracts for 20-minute talks (plus 10 minutes for discussion), as well as for poster presentations, on any aspect of linguistic research. In particular, we look forward to receiving studies dealing with synchronic and diachronic approaches to theoretical linguistics, sociolinguistics, language variation and change, contact linguistics, bilingualism, Spanish in the US, applied linguistics, second language acquisition, multimodality, language policy and pidgin & creole languages.

Papers and poster presentations can be delivered in Spanish, Portuguese or English.
