March 25, 2020 update:
The Methods local organizing committee in conjunction with the Methods steering committee has decided to postpone Methods XVII by one year. While we are currently unable to fix a new date (the venue is closed until at least April 20), we will aim for the first week of August again (Aug. 2 to Aug. 6).
We plan to send out notifications of acceptance soon. There will be an option for presenters to carry over their acceptance to next year. We will be in touch with those accepted (probably sometime in summer 2020) to ask whether they would like to present their paper in 2021. There will be a new CfP to fill any empty slots with a likely November/December deadline.
Please continue monitoring the Methods website (https://methodsxvii.uni-mainz.de/) for any updates.
Thanks to everyone for their support in these difficult times, and please stay safe & healthy!
The theme for Methods XVII is (Dia)Lects in the 21st Century.
