SFB German in Austria Variation – Contact – Perception

The FWF Special Research Programme (SFB) ‘German in Austria. Variation – Contact –Perception’ (F60) is a project that deals with the variety and change of the German language in Austria. The three thematic pillars of the project are variation, contact and perception. This means that the SFB explores how the German language in Austria is used and perceived as well as how it has been influenced by other languages.

Our goal is to make the research methods and results of the project easily available to a wide audience. This includes anyone and everyone interested in the entire spectrum of variation and variety of German in Austria.

Final Call for Contributions to ICLaVE|11

This is the final Call for Contributions to the International Conference on Language Variation in Europe - ICLaVE|11, to be held at the University of Vienna from July 7-9, 2021.

ICLaVE, is one of the most important fora for research in the area of language variation in Europe. It aims at bringing together scholars of languages and language varieties spoken in Europe with the purpose of discussing empirical, methodological and theoretical issues in the study of language variation and change.

Keynote Speakers (confirmed):

Carlota de Benito Moreno (University of Zurich)

Annette D'Onofrio (Northwestern University, Illinois)

Stephan Elspaß (University of Salzburg)

Stefan Michael Newerkla (University of Vienna)


We solicit submissions for papers, posters, and multimedia presentations (a new format) to ICLaVE|11, in any and all areas of study related to language variation in European languages, such as sociolinguistics, dialectology, historical linguistics, psycholinguistics, phonetics, etc.


For details of submission, please consult our conference webpages:


The deadline for submissions is 1 November 2020 (23:59 Vienna time)!


Roadmap (next steps):

1 Nov 2020: Deadline for the submission of Papers, Posters, and Multimedia Presentations
1 Feb 2021: Notification of acceptance for submissions
7 - 9 July 2021: ICLaVE|11 in Vienna, Austria

Covid-19 information:

ICLaVE is not just any professional conference - it is an opportunity for convivial exchange and engagement on many levels. We are currently still very optimistic that ICLaVE|11 can be held on site and in person come July, and getting together 'IRL' is important to us! However, we all know that the situation might develop in unforeseeable ways from one moment to the next. For this reason, we have made adjustments to our conference registration schedule: we are postponing the opening of registration until mid-March, and have set March as the latest deadline by which we will take the final decision regarding our meeting. 

Please keep checking our conference website for updates and incoming information!

We look forward to your submissions!

The ICLaVE|11 Vienna Organizing Committee
