IClaVe 10: The International Conference on Language Variation in Europe
The International Conference on Language Variation in Europe, ICLaVE, is one of the most important fora for research in the area of language variation in Europe. It aims at bringing together scholars of languages or language varieties spoken in Europe with the purpose of discussing empirical, methodological and theoretical issues in the study of language variation and change.
The International Conference on Language Variation in Europe, ICLaVE|10 invites submissions for panels in all areas related to language variation in European languages. Panel proposals must be written in English and should be submitted electronically by (one of the) the panel organizer(s) to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Panels at ICLaVE|10 will have a duration of 8 or 12 slots (including introduction and/or discussion session). A slot is 30 minutes. Panels can be thematically organised, but data sessions are also welcome. We particularly invite panels on language variation in minority languages. Additional presentations may be added to a panel after the regular call for papers, but this will always be discussed with the panel organizer.
