Announcement: The Eighth Annual DFW mini-conference will be hosted by GIAL on Friday, 21 October 2016, in the Activity Center on the GIAL Campus. It is a full day’s event, featuring talks and posters by students and faculty members from the four participating schools (GIAL, UNT, UTA, and TAMUC) in any linguistic subfield. The conference serves as a platform for area linguists to exchange ideas, disseminate research results, and foster a sense of community. There are no plans to publish the proceedings, so scholars are invited to present findings on work in progress, as well as more finalized results.
Lunch and coffee break snacks will be provided. Registration will begin at 8:30 A.M.
Call for Papers: Students and faculty should submit abstracts to their home institution. Each presentation will be 20 minutes (plus 10 minute discussions). Submissions are limited to one singly or jointly authored abstract per author. Abstracts for poster presentations, in addition to the paper presentations, are also invited. Poster presentations will be given during the lunchtime session.
Deadline for GIAL student & faculty abstract submissions: 20 September.
