The purpose of the Slavic Linguistic Society is to create a community of students and scholars interested in Slavic linguistics in its broadest sense, that is systematic and scholarly study of the Slavic languages and of the contact between Slavic and non-Slavic languages. The Society aspires to be as open and inclusive as possible; no school, framework, approach, or theory is presupposed, nor is there any restriction in terms of geography, academic affiliation or status.

Papers dealing with any aspect of Slavic linguistics as understood above and within any framework are appropriate, including sociolinguistics, computational linguistics, language acquisition, etc. The only restriction is that all papers should address an issue pertaining to Slavic linguistics as defined above. We encourage everyone to participate and ask you to share this announcement with as many colleagues and students as possible. In view of the openness of our orientation, all papers are expected to be readily intelligible to other scholars, regardless of theoretical orientation.

Extended deadline for abstracts: 10 April 2011.
