to improve the diversity and quality of the contributions even further. The conference aims at young researchers to provide them with a platform for the presentation and discussion of research with their peers.

The focus/leitmotif of the conference is empirical research of language and its methodology. We encourage presentations of original data oriented research concerned with different aspects of language structure and use, as well as discussions of methodological groundings of the 'empirical turn' in linguistics.

The conference is organized as follows. There will be 2 plenary talks, 4 tutorial workshops and a general session for oral presentations and posters. The tutorials cover a broad range of topics and are aimed to provide participants with methodological essentials of the fields covered.

The conference takes place at the Faculty of Arts of Charles University in the very center of Prague which will provide participants with all the necessary comfort. On Wednesday 26 April 2018, the day before the opening of the conference, we will set up an "Warming up": First inofficial get-together.

Linguistics Prague 2018 is co-organised by Czech Language institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences.

The conference is supported by the Charles University project "Progres Q10, Language in the shiftings of time, space, and culture".
