EVOLANG WORKSHOP CALL FOR PAPERS
We invite submissions of abstracts to the following four workshops scheduled for the first day of 9th International Conference on the Evolution of Language (EVOLANG9) to be held 13-16 March, 2012, in Kyoto, Japan:
-Language and Brain
-Emotion and Language
-Animal Communication and Language Evolution
-Constructive Approaches to Language Evolution
Further details and descriptions of these workshops are available here.
In preparing abstracts for submission, please follow the standard EVOLANG stylesheets for 2-page Abstract type submissions. The relevant stylesheets are available here. Please note that the Constructive Approaches to Language Evolution workshop is somewhat flexible and allows submissions of papers between 2-10 pages (These too should be formatted according to the standard EVOLANG stylesheets).
Abstracts should be submitted directly to the contact address of the relevant workshop listed on the workshop descriptions page. Please note that the Theoretical Linguistics/Biolinguistics workshop is by invitation only and will not be accepting abstracts. The other four workshops will select 4-8 submitted papers for oral presentation. The abstracts of selected talks will not be included in the main conference proceedings, but will be included in a separate workshop booklet distributed to conference participants and made available for download on the conference website.
The conference will be offering limited financial support to help student authors attend the conference to present their own work. This applies equally to students accepted to give presentations as part of the main conference or workshops. Please see the conference website for further details.
For further details please see the workshop page of the conference website or contact the organizer of the relevant workshop directly.
