Call for Abstracts: the 2010 LSA Meeting

The 84th Annual Meeting of the Linguistic Society of America will take place January 7-10, 2010 at the Hilton Baltimore. The LSA is now accepting Abstract Submissions, starting June 1, 2009 and ending July 31, 2009. Submitting an abstract is a 2-part process: 1) Begin the 5-step online form, beginning here, and 2) Prepare your abstract, following their guidelines.

According to their submission guidelines, abstracts should be unmarked, and will be matched up with their corresponding online forms, if chosen. Abstracts with names or other identifying information will not be accepted.

The LSA also provides a critique of a model abstract and an insufficient abstract, found here. This is very helpful!

Please don't be intimidated by the process! This is an excellent opportunity to put your work out there into the world and familiarize yourself with the process. Play the game, and good luck!
