The submission system only allow you to submit three proposals, it is possible for you to be listed as presenting co-author on another person’s submission. As the limit of three guaranteed presentations applies to all submissions (including the participation in a symposium), please be aware that if you are listed as presenting author / presenting co-author for more than three presentations in total, we may have to withdraw you as presenter from one or more presentations. 

WALS annual international conference language is English. All proposals need to be submitted and presented in English, and only proposals handed in in English will be considered.

All proposals should be submitted through the online system. Because accounts from previous years are not available, please create a new user account first. Afterwards you can access the submission system which will allow you to submit your proposal(s).

Once provided with email and password, you can re-enter the website at any time prior to the submission deadline in order to change or update your data and proposal. Please remember to keep your email and password safe - you will need them again to register for the conference.
