***Call for abstracts***
The conference BMV 2018 will take place at the Department of Linguistics
and Baltic Languages  at the Masaryk University in Brno , Czech
Republic, on October 20-21, 2018.
We welcome theoretical, descriptive, experimental and typological work
by undergraduate and graduate students within the subfields of
phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics. BMV is a
student conference and we explicitly encourage presentations on original
yet unfinished research.
BMV is a conference for students organized by students. The purpose of
this event is to strengthen the ties between the linguistics student
communities in Austria and the Czech Republic and to provide a platform
for BA, MA and PhD students to present their work in an academic, but
friendly and informal atmosphere. We believe that creating a venue where
young linguists from neighboring academic centers can get to know each
other, present their research and share their ideas can spark
inspiration as well as prospects for further collaboration between the
linguistic communities in Brno and Vienna.
Submissions including papers on work in progress, also by students from
other countries are cordially invited!
In addition to the student presentations, we will host three short
workshops with distinguished invited speakers from Brno and Vienna. The
workshops are meant to be advanced introductory classes on a specialized
topic in general linguistics, but more interactive than a typical guest

Each submission that fits the topic will be reviewed by two reviewers,

will be asked to review one abstract and therefore will get the
opportunity to become part of the reviewing process.

get started, here  are some hints that might help you to write your
first abstract. Good luck!
