Call for Papers: SSILA Winter 2020 Meeting

Deadline for Abstracts: July 17, 2019

Location: New Orleans, LA

Dates: January 2–5, 2020

Please note the two significant changes in this call for papers that are different from previous years:

  1. The submission deadline has been moved back to July 17. This change comes as a consequence of the LSA having moved their deadline as well. Please keep this in mind as this is earlier than in previous years.
  2. The abstract requirements now include a description of the social outcomes / impacts / implications of the work presented. Details about this and a request for feedback on this trial will be addressed in a separate email.

Abstract Submission

The deadline for receipt of all abstracts is on July 17th at 11:59 PM (Hawaii-Aleutian time). Please note that the deadline this year is two weeks earlier than in previous years. This is because the LSA submission deadline was changed to an earlier date this year, and SSILA endeavors to make acceptance decisions at the same time as the main LSA conference.

Abstracts should be submitted electronically, using the electronic submission website EasyChair. Consult the SSILA website for detailed instructions. Also, e-mail or hard-copy submissions will be accepted if arrangements are made in advance with the SSILA Program Committee Administrator, Martin Kohlberger ( Abstracts may be submitted in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.
