Abstract Guidelines from Program Committee


Abstracts are an important tool in assembling the program for the 2020 Denver meeting so that papers can be grouped into the most intellectually coherent panels.

For this year’s meeting, the program committee decided to require abstracts in the range of 100-roughly 250 words (up to 2000 characters for individual papers, up 850 characters for sessions).  We ask you to be thoughtful about your abstract, use clear language, and be concrete. 

The program committee will rely on your abstract to decide whether your participation is accepted, and where to place it in the conference program.  Remember that all abstracts must be in English.

To assist you in preparing and making the abstracts as useful as possible, below are some guidelines adapted from the website of the Linguistics Society of America:        Paper     Roundtable
