Language Science Press Meeting at DGfS Annual Conference Leipzig

Time: 2015 March 3, 14:00h

Place: Hörsaal 4 of Leipzig University’s Hörsaalgebäude http://conference.uni-leipzig.de/dgfs2015/index.php?id=20&L=1, very close to Gewandhaus and Augustusplatz in the city centre

Between March 4 and 6, several hundred linguists from many different countries will attend the Annual Conference of the DGfS (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sprachwissenschaft) at Leipzig University. Many of them will be interested in open-access publication and Language Science Press’s publication model, and in fact quite a few are already editorial board members or supporters.

We are organizing a one-hour meeting on the day before the conference (March 3) to bring together colleagues who would like to get an update on LangSci’s activities and to discuss future developments with us. There is no need to register for this meeting – anyone can just drop by.

The Language Science Press meeting will be followed immediately by a more general panel discussion http://conference.uni-leipzig.de/dgfs2015/index.php?id=89&L=0 on the future of linguistics publication (at 15:30, also Hörsaal 4). Panelists are Martin Haspelmath (MPi-EVA Leipzig), Kai von Fintel (MIT), Alexander Bergs (U Osnabrück), Stefan Müller (FU Berlin), and Henriette Rösch (Leipzig University Library). The topic is the major changes in publication technology and practice that we are witnessing and what linguists should do to profit from the new opportunities.
