Stipends may be available to offset the costs of travel and/or poster production, depending on funding. Information about stipends will be announced later.

Abstract guidelines

Abstracts must be submitted in PDF, Microsoft Word, RTF, or plain text. Abstracts must be no more than 500 words long and should not include the author’s name or other identifying information. The abstract should include the following: (1) a clear statement of the main point or argument of the poster; (2) a brief discussion of the problem or research question with reference to previous research and the work’s relevance to the study of linguistic diversity in California; (3) a short piece of data to support the main point or argument; (4) conclusions and/or implications of the research. At the end of the abstract, specify if you will need a table for your laptop in order to present data related to your poster. (We cannot provide laptops or headphones.)

Abstracts should be accessible to a wide audience, as they will be reviewed by scholars from a variety of language-related fields. Posters will be accepted based on reviewers’ evaluations of the anonymous abstracts.
