Call for Papers

SALT 14 invites submissions for 30-minute presentations (plus ten-minute discussions) on any topic pertaining to natural language semantics with relevance to linguistic theory. Abstracts should be at most 2 pages in length (including references) using a 12 pt. font with 1-inch (2.5 cm) margins on all four side. In the interest of fairness, these limitations will be strictly enforced. The same person may submit at most one abstract as a sole author and one as a co-author.

As a matter of general policy, 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. We therefore request that authors indicate prior or planned presentations of their papers along with their contact information when they submit their abstracts.

We strongly encourage electronic submissions, which may be sent to [...]. We ask authors to adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Please write the (first) author's name plus the word 'abstract' in the subject line of your message (e.g., 'Jones abstract'), and include author name(s), affiliation and contact information in the body of the email.
  • Please send the abstract as an attachment. We prefer .pdf files but will also accept plain text or MS-Word files; if you send the latter, we ask that you send us a .rtf rather than .doc file if possible.
If you choose to send in your abstract via regular mail, please submit 7 anonymous copies plus a separate card giving the title of the abstract, author name(s), affiliation, and contact information. Abstracts should be mailed to:

SALT 14 Committee
Department of Linguistics
Northwestern University
Evanston, IL 60208 USA

Abstracts (electronic or otherwise) should reach us by 9pm CST, January 30, 2004. (Please note the later deadline!) We regret that we will not be able to consider abstracts arriving after this date.
