Call for Papers

Call for Papers will be open from March 15 to July 15, 2024.

We encourage submissions of papers at the intersection of linguistic theory and the Romance languages. Beyond this general tenet, there are no specific requirements as to the topic, the subdiscipline, the approach or the methodology, for the main session.
Submissions for the workshop should focus on theoretical dimensions of code-switching in bilingual communities where at least one of the languages in contact is a Romance language.

Oral presentations will be 20 minutes long, followed by 10 minutes for discussion. Please indicate in your submission whether your abstract should be considered for the main session or for the workshop. For main session submissions, please indicate also whether your paper is to be considered for oral or poster presentation. For the workshop we only accept oral presentations.

Submission guidelines

Abstracts should be anonymous (both in the body of the text and in the filename) and no longer than two pages A4, including references and examples, with 2.5 cm margins, font size 12, single-spaced. Submissions are limited to a maximum of one individual and one joint abstract per author (or two joint abstracts) for the entire conference.
