GLOW 43 is a free virtual conference. There are no participation fees.
VIRTUAL GLOW 43
Inspired by other similar initiatives, and in particular the virtual implementation of CUNY 2020, we have decided to turn the conference online and virtualize GLOW 43 – the main colloquium, the poster session, and the workshops. This way, we very much hope to give your work the outlet it deserves, and to offer an interactive event with much of the same content we have planned at present. While we probably all agree that an online conference experience will never replicate a face-to-face interaction, it is not difficult to find positive aspects to it: more accessibility, openness, carbon-neutrality and no participation fees. The scientific community probably has a lot to win in learning how to promote scientific exchanges through online platforms.
We are still working on the details of this. For updates on what has already been decided by the local committee together with the GLOW Board, please consult our Going Virtual page. For monetary questions, check our Going Free page.
The 43rd Generative Linguistics in the Old World (GLOW) conference will take place (virtually) at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin from April 8th to 20th, 2020.
In addition to the main session, there will be three thematic workshops:
- Workshop I: Prosody in Speech Signal, Perception, and Gestures
Organized by Marzena Zygis and Stefanie Jannedy (ZAS Berlin)
- Workshop II: Semantic Universals in the Modal and Attitudinal Domain
Organized by Uli Sauerland (ZAS Berlin) and Wataru Uegaki (University of Edinburgh)
- Workshop III: Remarks: the Legacy
Organized by Artemis Alexiadou (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin & ZAS Berlin) and Hagit Borer (Queen Mary University London)
For the main colloquium, which will include a poster session as well, scholars are invited to submit unpublished papers within all areas of generative linguistics. Submissions on phonological topics are especially welcome. The three workshops have their own topics and expect papers relating to them.
