Non-IACL members must join IACL by March 28, 2020 to be eligible for presentation at this conference.
The YSA competition is an innovative attempt by the IACL to promote, recognize, and encourage young scholars. It is held once a year in conjunction with the IACL annual conference. A maximum of 5 finalists will be selected, and each will be awarded a travel subsidy (of around $500) and invited to the IACL conference to give an oral presentation at a special session, organized for this purpose, before a panel of judges chaired by the IACL president (the review committee of any given year may also recommend that no finalist be invited). The author of the best paper selected by the panel will be honored at the banquet of the annual conference and presented with an award certificate.
This award offers an annual prize in the amount of US $500, donated by Professor Anne Yue in memory of the eminent linguist and sinologist, Professor Mantaro J. Hashimoto. It is offered as an encouragement to young scholars who wish to devote themselves to the study of Chinese historical phonology, a field in which Professor Hashimoto was especially interested and to which he made numerous important contributions.
The prize will be administered as part of the Young Scholar Award process. All YSA papers submitted in the field of Chinese historical phonology will automatically be concurrently considered for the MJH Award.
Title the subject of the submission email “YSA/MJH”. Applicants should follow the published YSA guidelines and the above deadline in preparing their submissions. All regulations, restrictions, selection criteria, and current judging standards in the YSA process will apply to papers considered for the MJH Award, with the exception that the papers submitted for the MJH Award must deal specifically with the area of Chinese historical phonology.
This award is an annual prize in the amount of US $500, established in the honor of Professor Hsin-I Hsieh for his immense contributions to the IACL and to the field of Chinese linguistics. The award is offered as a token of encouragement to young scholars who wish to devote themselves to interdisciplinary studies in Chinese linguistics.
The prize will be administered as part of the Young Scholar Award (YSA) process. All papers with an interdisciplinary approach submitted for YSA will automatically be concurrently considered for the Interdisciplinary Research Award.
Title the subject of the submission email “YSA/IRA”. Applicants should follow the published YSA guidelines and the above deadline in preparing their submissions. All regulations, restrictions, and selection criteria adopted in the YSA process will apply to papers considered for the Interdisciplinary Research Award, with the exception that these submissions must have an interdisciplinary focus, which includes interface studies (e.g., phonology-syntax, morpho-syntax, syntax-semantics.), studies which combine diachronic and synchronic approaches, studies that combine methodologies from different frameworks (e.g., formal, functional, typological), or studies that combine linguistics and other disciplines (e.g., literature, anthropology, sociology, psychology, computer science).
