Draft paper submission deadline

We welcome abstracts on all subjects related to Iranian languages and linguistics. Submissions are invited for 20-minute talks, plus 10 minutes for discussion, and/or posters (posters should measure approx. 3ft x 4ft or 90cm x 120cm) on any aspect of Iranian Linguistics. Authors may choose between talk/poster, or express no preference.

Abstracts are invited from all areas of linguistics, including but not limited to phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, and their interfaces, language acquisition, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, sociolinguistics, computational linguistics, applied linguistics, and language documentation.

We strongly encourage contributions exploring approaches to language diversity and typological works (including but not limited to sign languages, under-represented languages and comparative studies). Abstracts for a special session on language documentation are highly encouraged.

Abstract guidelines:

In order to be eligible for consideration, abstracts should conform to the following requirements:

  1. Abstracts, including references and data, must not exceed two US letter or A4 pages in length, have 2.5 cm (1 inch) margins on all sides, and be set in Times New Roman with a font size no smaller than 11pt.
  2. Examples, tables, graphs, etc. must be interspersed into the text of the abstract, rather than collected at the end.
  3. The submission must not reveal the identity of the author(s) in any way.
  4. Submissions are limited to two per author, with at most one paper being single-authored.
