Semantics and Linguistic Theory (SALT) is the premier North American conference on semantics as a part of linguistic theory. The 32nd SALT will take place in Mexico City and will be co-hosted by El Colegio de Mexico (COLMEX) and the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) on June 8 – 10, 2022. SALT32 will be held in a hybrid format (or a virtual format, depending on the COVID-19 situation in 2022).

As a simultaneous event to SALT32, the SALT Committee on Equity and Diversity, SALT(ED), and the SALT32 organizing committee will be holding a workshop. The exact topic, date, and format of this workshop will be announced in the forthcoming weeks.

For questions or comments, please contact the program committee.

Invited speakers

Call for papers:

We invite submission of abstracts for 30-minute oral presentations (with an additional 10 minutes for questions) or posters (with a short lightning round presentation prior to the poster session) on any topic in natural language semantics with relevance to linguistic theory.

Submission details

Deadline: Monday, November 15, 2021

Submissions should be made via the SALT32 EasyChair site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=salt32. We expect to notify authors of their acceptance in early February of 2020.

Requirements

  • Abstracts (and their metadata) must be completely anonymous.
  • The main text should be at most 2 pages (US Letter or A4) in length, including examples, with an optional third page ONLY for references, large graphs, tables, pictures, figures, and non-English, glossed examples.
  • The abstract should use a 12pt font and 1 inch margins (for US Letter) or 3 cm margins (for A4) on all four sides.
  • The abstract must be submitted as a single PDF file.
  • These limitations will be strictly enforced. In addition to the intellectual interest of the abstract, clarity and readability will also be taken into account in reviewing.
  • The name of the studied language(s) should be included as keywords in the abstract (even if it is English).

SALT32 will feature a poster session. Poster presentations will be published as regular papers in the proceedings.

Policies

Authors may be involved in at most two abstracts and may be the sole author of at most one abstract.

SALT does not accept papers that, at the time of the conference, have been published or have been accepted for publication. In addition, preference will be given to presentations that are not duplicated at other major conferences.

If the work or a close variant of it is under submission to or accepted for publication or presentation in any other major venue (such as a national or international conference or a journal/book chapter), we request that the authors create a small section titled “Additional Submission” after the references at the end of the paper. This section should include the other venue(s) for which the work has been submitted, the status of those submissions, and an indication of any major aspects of the SALT abstract not submitted elsewhere. We require that authors update us by email if/when there is a relevant change in the status of other submissions.

SALT has a code of conduct and by submitting an abstract and by attending the conference, you are agreeing to abide by the code.

Proceedings

All papers presented at the conference (including oral presentations, posters, and alternates, and including presentations at the workshop) will be published in a SALT 32 volume following the conclusion of the conference.
