CuTLi 2017 – Call for Poster Presentation Extended Deadline!!

The conference Current Trends in Linguistics will take place from January 21st to 22nd 2017 at the University of Hamburg. The organizing committee cordially invites you to submit posters that fit the theme of the conference.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together the work of well-known researchers (internal and external) with that of local PhD and graduate students. We wish to create an enabling atmosphere with room for fruitful discussions, valuable critique and stimulating conversations among senior and junior researchers.

CuTLi 2017 will have one poster session for junior researchers, where they get to present work on their ongoing dissertations. Posters may remain available during the rest of the conference. The maximum size for the poster is A0, and we are pleased to announce that we will reimburse printing costs of your posters.

We encourage you to submit an abstract of your poster, max. 500 words (excluding references). This is a great opportunity for you to present your (future) MA thesis or PhD project ideas and receive feedback.
