Call for Abstracts

We invite abstract submissions for talks or posters on topics pertaining to natural language semantics, pragmatics, the syntax-semantics interface, super semantics, philosophy of language, and psycho-/neurolinguistic investigations related to meaning. We specifically welcome submissions on the semantics of under-represented languages and phenomena.

Update: While SuB28 will be mostly in person, we will allow for virtual presentations and participation

  • Abstracts should contain original research that, at the time of submission, has neither been published nor accepted for publication. One person can submit at most one abstract as sole author and one abstract as co-author (or two co-authored abstracts) for the main session and special session combined. Submissions on the topic of the special session will be considered for the main session as well.
  • During submission, authors will be asked to specifywhether they would like their abstract to be considered for a talk and/or poster.
  • Submissions must be anonymous and must not reveal the identities of the authors in any form. Abstracts should fit two pages (letter size or A4 paper, 2.54cm or 1 inch margins on all sides, 12 point font, Times New Roman), with an additional third page used exclusively for the following elements: references (obligatory), large figures or tables, as many lines as there are lines of glosses and translations in non-English glossed examples. Examples (glossed or not) should be interspersed in the text, rather than collected at the end.
  • Abstracts must be submitted in PDF format via EasyChair by Wednesday, March 15, 2023 (23:59 Central European Standard Time):
