Submission

The submission of abstracts are handled via EasyChair, via the link https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ac2019.

Submission guidelines and instructions

The rules for submissions are the same for the regular programme and the workshops. Authors can submit an anonymous abstract of at most two pages (excluding references), with 1 inch margins and 11pt font.

When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to state whether you are submitting to the general programme, the workshop on semantic universals or the workshop on super linguistics. You will also be asked to provide a short summary of at most 200 words. Note that the field for entering this summary is labeled "abstract" in EasyChair; this is not to be confused with the full two-page abstract, which needs to be provided separately as a PDF. The 200 word summary should clearly indicate subject matter and conclusions (it need not be included in the full two-page abstract).

Submitting the same abstract for more than one category (general programme, workshop on semantic universals, workshop on super linguistics) is not allowed. The organizers reserve the right to re-allocate accepted abstracts to a different category. Authors planning to submit an abstract to the Super Linguistics Workshop may find useful these notes from the organizers of the workshop.

Authors can submit at most one abstract as a single author, and at most two abstracts in total.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is September 1, 2019. Authors will be notified of acceptance by October 20. Authors of accepted abstracts will either be invited to give a talk or to present a poster at the conference. Full papers (10 pages) to be included in the proceedings, are due on 1 December. The proceedings of the Amsterdam Colloquium will be downloadable from the Amsterdam Colloquium website during the conference.
