The International Conference on Language Variation in Europe
Vienna, Austria | 08-11 July 2024

ICLaVE|12 invites submissions for individual papers, posters, and multimedia presentations.

Scholars working on language variation and change of European languages and varieties in areas such as sociolinguistics, dialectology, historical linguistics, sociology of language, psycholinguistics, language perception, and language psychology are invited to submit their proposals on any relevant aspect of variation in language use and/or the linguistic system.

For panel submissions, the deadline is 01 August 2023.
For individual paper, poster and multimedia submissions, the deadline is 01 November 2023. Visit our roadmap for all dates concerning the conference.

Submission of all types must include an abstract (for panels: a panel description) in English, of max. 500 words (excluding title and references).

For more information on each submission type, please consult the following webpages:


  • Authors may submit two abstracts in total to the conference, if at least one paper is co-authored.
  • Please submit a featured panel talk only after your panel organizer has already registered and submitted the corresponding panel (you will need to enter the panel title to correctly assign your talk).
  • When submitting a panel, please use the field "Additional Speaker" on the next page only to list co-organizers of the panel. Featured panel contributors must be entered on the page thereafter.
  • Please ignore the indication of "duration" (5 minutes) for posters & multimedia presentations -> both presentations types will be held during a dedicated session.

The next steps will lead you through the submission process. We look forward to your contribution!
