Basic accommodation is included in the conference fee.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will it be possible to attend the conference in person?

We hope so, but we have a backup plan for hybrid or online proceedings.

The participation fee will be set to a maximum of 30€. There will be scholarships for students who are unable to pay this fee and first time attendees can apply for the StuTS Scholarship.

What is an abstract?

An abstract is a text that presents the main points of the work you are intending to present in a short and consise manner. It serves as a compact summary of content and should make readers curious about your work. An abstract should answer the following questions:

  • What is the aim of your work?
  • What are the main findings?
  • Who should be interested in your work?
  • What did you do?

Who can submit a talk/poster/workshop?

Anyone can submit their project for a talk or poster or offer to give a workshop. However, as a student conference, we give priority to talks given by current students and projects that were conducted as part of your undergraduate or graduate studies. Both finished projects and work in progress are elegible for presentation and it does not matter, if you have previously presented your work elsewhere.

If you are a PhD student and want to get feedback on your work in progress, the STaPs (Sprachwissenschaftliche Tagung für Promotionsstudierende) may be a more suitable venue.
