The proceedings of the 45th ACAL will be published by Language Science Press ( If you presented work at ACAL 45 (talk or poster), we encourage you to submit your paper for consideration for inclusion in the proceedings publication. Please note that all papers will be peer-reviewed and there will be a selection process. In other words, not all submissions are guaranteed to be accepted.

The deadline for submissions is Monday January 5th, 2015 at midnight (Central Standard Time), roughly two and a half months from now. We have established a firm upper limit of 15 pages for submissions, including references. Please email your submissions to:

As far as formatting is concerned, Language Science Press typically requires all submissions in LaTeX. Luckily, the ACAL organizers have negotiated for the press to accept Word document submissions this time around. LSP will then convert all accepted manuscripts to LaTeX. LSP does have style preferences, though. So we ask that all submissions follow their style guidelines as closely as possible. Please use the LSP style guidelines file for use in preparing your manuscript for submission.

If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us. Once again, thanks for your patience and happy writing!
