Semantics and Linguistic Theory 18

March 21-23, 2008

Call for papers

[The SALT 18 submission deadline has passed.]

Deadline: December 15, 2007

Submission: [details]

We invite submissions of abstracts for 30-minute presentations (plus 10-minute discussions) on any topic pertaining to natural language semantics with relevance to linguistic theory. Abstracts must be anonymous and should be at most 2 pages (A4 or US Letter) in length, including examples and references, using a 12pt font with 1-inch (2.5 cm) margins on all four sides. These limitations will be strictly enforced.

SALT 18 will feature a poster session. We ask that you indicate in your submission email whether you would like your abstract to be considered for poster presentation. Poster presentations will be published as regular papers in the proceedings.


Authors may be involved in at most two submissions and may be the sole author of at most one abstract. No single author will be allowed to give more than one presentation at the conference.

SALT does not accept papers that at the time of the conference have been published or have been accepted for publication. In addition, preference will be given to presentations that are not duplicated at other major conferences. We therefore request that authors indicate prior or planned presentations of their papers along with their contact information when they submit their abstracts.

All papers presented at the conference will be published in a SALT 18 volume following the conclusion of the conference.
