Meeting Description:

Semantics of Under-Represented Languages in the Americas (SULA) 7 will be held at Cornell University, 4-6 May 2012. The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers working on languages or dialects spoken in the Americas which do not have an established tradition of work in formal semantics. We especially encourage abstract submissions from those whose work involves primary fieldwork or experimentation as well as analysis. We strongly encourage the participation of graduate students.

Invited Speakers:

Maria Bittner (Rutgers University)
Theodore Fernald (Swarthmore College)
Robert Henderson (University of California, Santa Cruz)
Richard Littlebear (Chief Dull Knife College)
Meagan Louie (University of British Columbia, Vancouver)

Call for Papers:

We invite submissions of abstracts for papers (25-minute presentation plus 10-minute discussion) or posters on any topic in the semantics of under-represented languages of the Americas. As in previous years, sessions will include a discussion period at the end with commentators.

The abstract submission deadline is 30 January 2012, 11:59pm EST. We expect to make notifications of acceptance in late February.

Instructions for Abstract Submission:

Abstracts must be at most two pages long, including data and references, on letter-size or A4 paper with 1 inch margins on all sides and at least 11 point font. Abstracts should have a clear title and should be anonymous, so all authors' names must be absent from all pages. The abstract must be submitted electronically in PDF format.

We are using EasyAbstracts at The Linguist List for the submission and the review process. The address for abstract submission is:


When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to indicate whether you would like your abstract to be considered for a talk, a poster, or both. Submissions are limited to 1 individual and 1 joint abstract per author, or 2 joint abstracts per author.

Important Dates:

Submission deadline: 30 January 2012, 11:59pm EST
Notification of acceptance: Late February 2012
Conference date: 4-6 May 2012
