Call for papers: IATL

We are pleased to announce the 32nd annual conference of the Israel
Association for Theoretical Linguistics (IATL), which will take place
at the Language, Logic and Cognition Center at the Hebrew University
of Jerusalem, October 25-27, 2016. The conference will consist of a
general session as well as a special session on experimental and
historical approaches to semantics.

General Session:

We invite submissions of abstracts for 30 minute presentations of
previously unpublished research in all areas of theoretical

Special Session – Experimental and historical approaches to semantics:

Research into issues in natural language semantics from experimental,
on the one hand, and historical perspective, on the other hand, has
been gaining in prominence in recent years, not least because it
provides new ways of evaluating extant linguistic hypotheses as well
as impetus for the development of new ones. We invite submissions of
abstracts on experimental and historical studies that will expand the
empirical domain of, and be informed by, formal semantic theory.

Invited Speakers:

Cleo Condoravdi (Stanford)
Uli Sauerland (ZAS)

Abstract Submission Guidelines:

Abstracts should be no longer than two pages, including examples and
references. Page format: A4, 2,54cm (one inch) margins on all sides,
12-point font, single line spacing. Submissions are restricted to at
most one single-authored and one co-authored abstract.

Please submit abstracts to the IATL EasyChair site:


Please register at the site as an author, and when you receive a
password, you can enter the site and submit your abstract. The
abstract should be submitted in PDF format through the 'Upload Paper'
section near the bottom of the page. (Note: Higher up on the page, in
the 'Title and Abstract' section, there is a box for a plain-text
abstract. Since we do not require a shorter abstract, you may simply
retype the title of the paper in the abstract box and the intended
session.) When submitting your abstract, please indicate on the top of
the abstract whether you intend your paper to be considered for the
general session or the special session (or both) (say, in parentheses
following the title).
