Call for abstracts
We decided to organize a “hybrid format” in which the entire conference will be accessible online. This includes the possibility to present and participate in discussions remotely.
Additionally, we hope to be able to offer in-person participation options if circumstances permit it.
We will follow the format of this year’s CUNY conference with a main session with 30 min slots (20 min talk, 10 min discussion) and thematically organized parallel sessions with
short (5 min) talks and a grouped discussion. These parallel sessions will replace poster sessions.
Submit your abstract(s) by May 17, midnight in any timezone. Note that the deadline cannot be extended this year!
Here are the templates from last year's AMLaP to get you started:
Whether or not you use a template, make sure your abstract follows the following guidelines:
- Submit abstract in PDF format.
- Do not include identifying information of any kind.
- Use of color is encouraged but make sure colors work for people with color-blindness. (One test is to print in black & white.)
- Page size is ISO A4 (210 mm × 297 mm, 8.3 in × 11.7 in).
- Margins: 2.5 cm on all sides (0.984252 in).
- Font: Helvetica or Arial, 11 pt
- No page numbers or any other page decoration.
- Contains the main text
- Title in bold face
- Enough Empty line(s) reserved for author names, affiliations, and first author's email address
- An additional empty line to separate main text
- Paragraphs preferably justified and with automatic hyphenation (if available) for optimal use of space and pleasant-looking typesetting.
- Use a second page for additional materials, example stimuli, graphs, tables, references, but main text must be confined to page 1.
- If the abstract reports research on languages other than English, authors can use an optional third page to provide any additional
information about the studied language that could help the readers understand the research. This could include: additional examples,
background information about a language, brief discussion of related research on the specific relevant properties of the language, etc.
If the abstract reports computational modeling, authors can also use an additional page. In this case, the main text (page 1) should be written
to be accessible for a broad audience and more technical information for experts should be provided on the additional page.
- We invite submissions about ongoing work. Two requirements: First, the data collection has started at the time of submission or is ready to start.
Second, the abstract clearly states the planned sample size (with or without justification). In addition, we suggest that these abstracts
focus on the design, planned analysis, and potential theoretical import, not on preliminary results (think registered report).
- Bibliographic information can be in abbreviated style (e.g., Doe et al., J of Examples, 2020) to preserve space for contribution content. APA is not required.
