Call for Papers

The Faculty of Arts in Ljubljana (University of  Ljubljana) is pleased to invite you to submit abstracts for the 8th annual conference SinFonIJA, which will take place from September 24-26 2015, in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Abstracts are invited from all areas of theoretical linguistics, including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, psycholinguistics and historical linguistics. Submissions from other areas of linguistics will also be considered, provided that the theoretical significance of the paper is clearly demonstrated in the abstract.

We invite abstracts for either a 25 minute oral presentation, followed by 10 minutes of discussion, or a poster presentation. [NOTE: Originally we planned 25+10 minute presentations, but had to adapt the length, as we received a relatively high number of submissions. The presenters are now asked to prepare a 20 minute talk, followed by a 5 minute discussion.]

Submission Guidelines

  • Abstracts may be no longer than 2 pages of A4 format with 1-inch (2.54cm) margins on all sides, single-spaced with a font size of at least 12pt. Examples are to be intertwined in the text in the appropriate place and not collected at the end.
  • Submissions are restricted to a maximum of one single-authored and one co-authored abstract (or two co-authored abstracts).
  • Abstracts must not reveal the name or affiliation of the author(s).
  • The language of the conference is English.
  • Abstracts should be submitted as a .pdf file with one word from the title as the file name.

 Please submit your abstract through EasyChair.
