We invite papers from all areas of linguistics, but especially encourage submissions relevant to our special session, entitled "Experimental Advantages."

Submission rules and details are in the PDF, but here's the gist:

The University of Texas is located just a few miles north of downtown Austin. It is accessible primarily via Guadalupe St. which runs along the entire west side of the main campus.
The main airport servicing Austin, TX and the surrounding area is the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS). Shuttles and Taxis are available from AUS and the Route 100 Airport Flyer bus has stops on the UT campus at the intersection of 23rd St. E. and Robert Dedman, which is just a short walk from the Linguistics Department building.
Some UT graduate students may be able to provide accommodations for TLS participants. If you would like to request to stay with a graduate student, please let us know via email with the following information:
Austin is kind of expensive, lodging-wise. If you're traveling economically, your best bet is probably to see if there's a UT grad student available to take you in (first come first serve!), then Couchsurfing (arrange at least a month in advance), then Airbnb (arrange at least a week in advance).
