Meeting Description:

The Symposium about Language and Society-Austin (SALSA) is pleased to announce its 19th Annual meeting, to be held April 15-17 at the University of Texas at Austin. The theme of this year's conference is 'Language in the Public Domain.'

2011 Invited Speakers:

Call for Papers:

Deadline Extension: the new Abstract submission deadline is January 21st.

SALSA is now accepting proposals for papers that explore the public dimensions of language. Language is a distinctly human characteristic and central to all human social organization. It is the medium through which we shape our identities, relate to other people, and construct our social realities. Our focus in this conference is on language as it is used in media, politics, performance, and other public spaces, and how language can affect and be affected by these processes and domains of usage.

Please send submissions to SALSA 2011 through the online submission form on the SALSA web site.

All submissions must include two abstracts: An extended abstract not to exceed 4,100 characters and spaces (approximately 600 words), including references and examples; and a shorter abstract not to exceed 1,100 spaces and characters (approximately 150 words). Please note that the online submission form does not accept special formatting or text such as IPA. Only electronic submissions sent through our online form will be accepted. Each person is limited to one submission as the primary author; multiple submissions by the same first author will not be accepted.

Deadline for receipt of abstracts is January 21, 2011. Late submissions will not be accepted, and we cannot accept papers that are to be published elsewhere.

Notification of acceptance will be sent in the first week of February 2010.
