We welcome all areas and approaches to the study of learning second, foreign, or additional languages.


Types of presentations

1) Individual papers: length of presentation: 20 mins followed by 5 mins for Q&A.

2) Colloquia: a maximum of three colloquia will be accepted. Each colloquium may contain three or five thematically related papers (the colloquium is therefore either 90 or 150 minutes long, depending on the number of papers). The colloquium convener must submit a colloquium abstract that should describe the topic of the colloquium. This will be used by reviewers to assess the range and coherence of the papers. Individual presenters submit individual papers but mark them as part of a named colloquium. Please note it is a requirement for a colloquium to be accepted that all included papers are accepted. If the colloquium is rejected, individual papers may still be accepted as papers in parallel sessions. Please also note that there is no time assigned for a discussant.

3) Posters. A0, portrait.

4) Papers at the doctoral student workshop. Length of presentation: 15 minutes of talk by the doctoral student followed by 15 minutes for discussion. The doctoral student workshop aims at fostering discussions of ongoing PhD research, as well as at obtaining feedback from senior researchers and other doctoral students. These workshops provide an opportunity for PhD students to present and discuss their work (15 minutes) and explore future directions (15 minutes). Doctoral students whose abstracts are accepted are required to send their abstract, presentation, and these will be then sent to the discussant. The discussant will lead a 15 minute feedback/discussion session of the PhD work.

For the first time this year, all papers accepted for doctoral workshops will be eligible for the Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism award for best doctoral project (more detailed information to come soon).
