The LSA is pleased to announce a new partnership with the organizers of the Experiments in Linguistic Meaning (ELM) conference. The mission of the ELM Proceedings is to provide an open access venue for experimental work on linguistic meaning broadly construed, with a focus on theoretical issues in semantics and pragmatics, their interplay with other components of the grammar, their relation to language processing and acquisition, as well as their connections to human cognition and computation. We aim to include representation of linguistic, psychological, logical, philosophical, social, developmental, computational, as well as cross-linguistic and cross-cultural perspectives. The papers are developed from presentations at the new biennial ELM conference, the first instance of which is organized online by Florian Schwarz and Anna Papafragou at the University of Pennsylvania, September 16-18, 2020, with a highly interdisciplinary and international mix of presenters.  ELM is also working with the the Pop-Up Mentoring Program (PUMP) organized by the LSA's Committee on the Status of Women in Linguistics (COSWL) to host a Pop-Up Mentoring Event.

The LSA will serve as the publisher of record for the ELM Proceedings, to be hosted on our Proceedings website, with full open access. ELM will join other LSA Proceedings publications, including SALT, AMP, Tu+, PLSA and the archives of BLS (1975-2014).
