The conference will be hosted by the Department of English Linguistics in the School of English and American Studies of ELTE and is sponsored by the Faculty of Humanities of ELTE and the Research Institute for Linguistics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

Invited speakers

Call for papers

We invite the submission of abstracts for talks (30 minutes) and posters on any area of theoretical or descriptive linguistics. For  instructions on how to submit abstracts and relevant links, please see the submissions page.

Important dates


Accepted presenters of talks will be offered accommodation free of charge  for 3 nights in a 1 star hotel. You are of course welcome to make your own accommodation arrangements.

Below is a list of hotels and hostels near to the conference venue. The list is not exhaustive and obviously there are many more hotels in Budapest. Please bear in mind if you are looking for a hotel yourself, that the conference is situated on the Pest side of the city. The hotels listed are not endorsed by the conference organisers and we have no personal experience of any of them.

The prices given are just an indication, based on the cheapest price per head per night advertised on the websites for the period of the conference. Both hotels and hostels may charge different rates depending on what kind of room you want. You may be able to get special deals from booking companies or from the hotel itself. You are advised to check for room availability and price before booking.

The codes next to the hotel names give some indication of the distance of the accommodation from the conference venue: ‘W’ means within 10 minutes walk and ‘PT N’ meant approximately N minutes by public transport.
