Congreso, coloquio o simposio
The theme of the Conference will be "(Cognitive) developments in multimodal (digital) communication. Expanding traditional borders in SFL".
From the assumption that human interaction is inherently multimodal, and the acceptance of the co-development of society and digital media for communication and its analysis, this conference aims to deepen in the explanation of language and other modes of meaning-making, and explore models for the representation of such multimodality. The conference invites SFL and associated disciplines to approach the study of verbal and non-verbal communication in the form of paper presentations, posters and single-themed symposia with multiple speakers.
Although the conference is open to contributions that address all kinds of SFL theory and research/practice topics, we especially welcome proposals that connect the theme of the conference to these areas of research, among others:
- SFL and Multimodality
- SFL, Interdisciplinarity and Transdisciplinarity
- SFL, Computational Linguistics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence
- SFL and Corpus Linguistics
- SFL and Genre theories/ analysis
- SFL and Cognitive Linguistics
- SFL and Pragmatics
- SFL and (Critical) Discourse Analysis
- SFL and L2 Teaching and Learning
- SFL and ESP
- SFL and (digital) Communication (medical, business, political, etc.)
- SFL, Translation and Multilingual Studies
- SFL and Ecolinguistics
- SFL and Literary Studies
- SFL and Culture and Media Studies
The following formats will be considered:
- 20-minute papers (plus 8 minutes for questions and answers)
- Single-themed symposia with multiple (3-5) speakers
All submissions will be evaluated by the scientific committee, who will consider their relevance to the framework, their quality and their originality.
- Abstracts for paper and poster proposals should include a title, a maximum of 300 words (including references) and 3-5 keywords.
- Abstracts for symposium proposals should include a title, a general description of their purpose (maximum 100 words), and individual descriptions of the papers to be presented (maximum 300 words each, including references and keywords).
