20th STaPs Augsburg/Budapest/Vienna

The 20th STaPs (Sprachwissenschaftliche Tagung für Promotionsstudierende – ‘Linguistics Conference for Ph.D. students’) will take place online on Friday, February 24th, and Saturday, February 25th of 2023.

STaPs. The STaPs as a conference by Ph.D. students for Ph.D. students seeks presentations of ongoing research with a particular focus on methodological and theoretical issues. You do not have to be able to present any results to participate. On the contrary, here, you are welcome to focus on your methods and express the challenges you might be facing. For this reason, this conference is particularly addressed to doctoral students in the beginning phase of their thesis. Projects of any area of linguistics can be presented (theoretical and descriptive linguistics as well as psycho-, neuro-, sociolinguistics and computer linguistics; synchronic or diachronic).

We welcome 500-word abstracts (including references) for the following categories:

  • Talks (20 min. + 10 min. Q&A)
  • Posters (30 min.)
  • Workshops (60 min.)
