The Program Committee of the LSA is now accepting abstracts for the Society's 95th Annual Meeting, which will be held from January 7-10, 2021 at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, California. 

You can view the Call for Abstracts here.  Abstracts will be accepted online, via the 2021 Annual Meeting Page, between May 1 and June 25.  Note that this deadline is approximately one month earlier than in previous years.  Submitting authors must be LSA members; nonmembers may join here, and lapsed members may renew their membership here.

If your ability to collect data has been affected by local, institutional, or national restrictions with regard to the novel coronavirus pandemic, we encourage you to submit your abstract anyway.  In this case only, you may use one paragraph on a second page (no more than half a page) to  briefly describe how your research has been affected and to provide a timeline for data collection and analysis.  For example: "Due to the coronavirus pandemic, data for this study have not yet been collected. Data collection will start immediately after restrictions are lifted. We expect to collect data from the planned 14 participants within two weeks, and to complete data labeling and analysis within two months."

We're excited to be back in San Francisco; it has been 12 years since the LSA last met there in January 2009.  We look forward to a packed program of plenary talks, organized sessions, papers and posters as well as professional development and student-centered activities.  Don't miss thResis unique opportunity to connect in person with over a thousand students and professionals from around the world and throughout the subfields of linguistics!

Resources for abstract submitters

We'll provide more information about the meeting as it gets closer, including many opportunities for student members of the LSA to volunteer in exchange for complimentary registration.
