Abstract guidelines

  • Abstracts should be written in English and not exceed two pages in total.
  • References, examples and/or figures can be included on the second page. Alternatively, lengthy text examples can be incorporated in text to improve readability.
  • Submitted abstracts must be in .pdf format, with Times New Roman font, size 12, 1 inch margins and single spacing. The filename must be in the form Paper_title.pdf (e.g., Logical_structure_of_linguistic_theory.pdf ).
  • Do not include author names or affiliations in either the filename or the abstract itself.
  • During the submission process, authors will be asked to whether an abstract is submitted for oral presentation, poster presentation, or either.
  • During the submission process, authors will be asked to provide between three and five keywords that best characterize their submission.
  • Authors may submit one abstract as first author, and may be co-author on no more than one additional abstract. In other words, one may be an author on up to two submissions, but first author on only one of those.
