*12th European Conference on Formal Description of Slavic Languages 

The Slavic Department of Humboldt University, Berlin is pleased to 
announce the 12th European Conference on Formal Description of Slavic 
Languages (FDSL-12) to be held on December 8-10, 2016.

The biannual conference has been hosted in turn by the University of 
Leipzig and University of Potsdam since 1995, with the University of 
Göttingen joining in organizing the conference in 2011. This year, for 
the first time, the Humboldt University will host FDSL. At the same 
time, the rhythm of the biannual conference changes, so that FDSL will 
from now on take place in even years.

Abstracts are invited for 30-minute talks (20-minute presentation plus 
10 minutes for discussion) on Slavic syntax, morphology, phonology, 
semantics, psycholinguistics and computational linguistics.

We particularly encourage the submission of abstracts on formal 
approaches to second language acquisition and multilingualism 
in/including Slavic. SLA and multilingual situations are characterized 
by the co-existence of two (or more) mental grammars and lexicons in the 
same individual, which leads to manifold research questions: How do two 
(or more) concurrent linguistic systems influence each other? What 
changes are instigated by the multilingual situation in formal grammar, 
lexicon, and language use? What are promising methods of research into 
SLA and multilingualism? What are the consequences for language 
endorsement and teaching? A special session on this vivid area of 
research will be part of the main conference.

Additionally, there will be a special pre-conference workshop on "Formal 
and experimental semantics and pragmatics" to be announced in a separate 

*Deadline for Abstract submission:* June, 30, 2016
