=============================================================

56th LINGUISTICS COLLOQUIUM

November 26 to 28, 2020

International conference comprising all fields of linguistics

For the first time taking place as a free online event

Special theme: Translation, Multilinguality and Cognition

Submission of abstracts (extended): October 12, 2020

Submission of full papers: February 28, 2021

Website: www.lingcoll.de (English and German)

Keynote speaker: Philipp Koehn, Johns Hopkins University, USA

=============================================================

Since its inception in 1966, the Linguistics Colloquium has been held annually without interruption in a total of 18 European countries. Its long term continuity is ensured by a large international committee consisting of its previous organizers. The Colloquium is devoted to research in all areas of linguistics. It is open to different theoretical approaches and aims to create friendly and inspiring conditions for the fruitful exchange of ideas and results. It is also appreciated for its welcoming atmosphere and cooperative discussion culture open to scientists of all ages and nationalities.

Traditionally, authors submit an abstract which, upon acceptance, is presented and discussed at the conference. Afterwards, a full paper has to be submitted, taking into account the outcome of the scientific discussion. As usually, also this year we plan to publish the proceedings as a hardcover book in the series "Linguistik International" of the Peter Lang publishing house.
Like many other conferences, this year, for the first time in its history, the Linguistics Colloquium will be organized as an online event. As, despite regular attendance from overseas, the Colloquium has been a mostly European event so far, we hope that colleagues from other continents will see this as an opportunity to get to know the friendly and co-operative spirit of the colloquium. To further encourage this and because an online event requires less funding, as a novelty this year we decided to completely waive registration fees.

PROCEEDINGS

As in previous years, we plan to publish post-conference proceedings as a hardcover book in the series Linguistik International (https://www.peterlang.com/view/serial/LIN)of the publisher Peter Lang (https://www.peterlang.com/).


CONFERENCE LANGUAGES

Conference languages are English and German. Although the Linguistics Colloquium supports linguistic diversity, for organizational reasons we are not able to provide for more languages. To avoid problems for delegates not speaking both languages, attention will be placed on parallelizing programme sessions in such a way that, as far as possible, there is always a choice of language.
