Call for papers

Abstracts are now invited for the 10th International Austronesian and Papuan Language and Linguistics Conference (APLL10). Presentations will be 30 minutes followed by 10 minutes of discussion. Each individual may present up to one single authored paper and one joint paper.

Abstracts should be no more than one A4 page in length including references and examples. They should be anonymous, and set in a minimum of 12pt font. They should be in .docx or .pdf format and the filename should start with APLL10, followed by an underscore and then first authors' surname, e.g. APLL10_bloggs.pdf. If you have a common surname, please also include initials, e.g. APLL10_jjones.pdf.

All papers will be subject to assessment by the Program Committee.

Abstracts must be submitted via the EasyChair system which you can access at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=apll10

If you do not have an EasyChair account already, you will need to create one when you do this. Once logged in complete your details and upload your abstract as an attachment (pdf or docx).

The deadline for the submission of all abstracts is Friday 17 November 2017.

Applicants will be notified of abstract acceptance by Friday 22 December 2017.
