Welcome to the website of the
11th International Conference on Language Variation in Europe - ICLaVE|11!


Update: ICLaVE|11 postponed to 2022
due to the COVID-19 situation

ICLaVE is not just any professional conference - it is an opportunity for convivial exchange and engagement on many levels. 
There are some significant characteristics that are specifically connected with the ICLaVE conference series that would unduly fall victim to any digital or hybrid alternative format. These of course include especially in-person engagement, which more often than not is vastly more conducive to our academic, area-specific advancement than any online-only presentation format with restricted opportunity for interaction could be. Not to mention all the social-cultural aspects that the university and city of Vienna hold in store for participants and which we had planned within our accompanying social program.
Given the still great number of imponderabilities that loom over all conference planning for 2021, we have reluctantly come to the decision to postpone ICLaVE|11 to the year 2022.

We are pleased to announce that ICLaVE|11 will now take place from April 11-14, 2022!

Due to the postponement we have made adjustments to our registration schedule and our calls. More Details following soon!
