Welcome to the website of the

11th International Conference on Language Variation in Europe - ICLaVE|11!

Some of our pages are currently still under construction - please check back soon for more information.



The International Conference on Language Variation in Europe, 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 on our continent.  


ICLaVE|11 takes place at the University of Vienna, Austria
(with kind support from the Austrian Academy of Sciences). 


7-9 July, 2021.

The COVID19 Situation:

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 registration schedule: we are postponing the opening of registration until mid-March, and have set March as the month in which we will make the final call regarding our meeting.

Please keep checking this website for updates and incoming information!

If you want to participate, take a look at our calls. You can propose a paper, a poster, a multimedia presentation, or a panel.

As soon as scheduling is completed, you will find our conference programme as well as the abstracts on this site. In the meantime, check out our plenaries and social programme.

As soon as registration starts, you can sign up here.

The locations section has information on the venue, on accommodation options, and on getting around in Vienna.
