Call for Papers

Extended Deadline: 29 April, 2019 - Postersubmissions only!

Hand your abstract in here (Instructions can be found here)

Interpreting will only be available between DGS and English/German unfortunately

We are inviting students of linguistics and related disciplines from BA to PhD level to present their work at the 65th StuTS, which takes place from May 23 to 25, 2019 at the University of Cologne. Feel free to present work from class projects, your bachelor’s or master’s thesis, or a project you are working on. You can choose whether you would like to present a poster or give a talk. Additionally, we are inviting language or technology related workshops from students who would like to share their insights. The topics should somehow fit into the general topic of linguistics and language research and we are looking forward to a wide variety of topics.

Presentation slots are 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for discussions and questions. Longer slots are available for longer talks or workshops upon request. Your presentation may be in German, English, or any other language, as long as you have sufficient knowledge of that language to present at a scientific conference. Please keep in mind that even linguists do not speak every single language that has ever existed.

Regardless of the format of your presentation, the abstract should be in the language of your presentation and should be no longer than 250 words*. If you are not presenting in English, German, Dutch, Spanish, or French, please provide a translation of your abstract to one of those languages for us to evaluate your proposal. The translation will not be published in the conference booklet. The portal for handing in abstracts will be available on this website shortly.

* If you woud like to present in a sign language, please hand in your abstract in the written majority language of the country and select the sign language as language of the talk. If the written language is in the list above, you do not need to send us a translation. You may, however, choose to hand in your signed abstract as a video by email. We will make it available on our website and add the link to the conference booklet, next to the written text.
