DescripciónThe conference responds to a widely recognized need for an updated knowledge base and innovative methodological tools in the study of temporal and modal representations in a second language (L2). It aims to complement previous research perspectives by providing a dynamic exploration of recent, up-to-date issues in contemporary research. We expect that the outcome of this conference will allow us to improve our TAML2 vision of linguistic theory, second language learning, second language acquisition (SLA), language teaching and the study of heritage languages. Both theoretical and pedagogical implications of the research on acquisition and learning of TAM will be discussed. This conference will also allow us to strengthen networks of scholars working on SLA from different perspectives.

Proposals for paper and poster presentations in any topic related to tense, aspect and modality in L2 are invited. Special emphasis will be given to the following ones:
(a) temporal and aspectual representations in L2;
(b) modality in L2;
(c) Corpus Linguistics applied to tense, aspect and modality in L2;
(d) pedagogical applications of TAML2 research findings;
(e) teaching aspect, tense and modality in L2;
(e) theory building.

Call for papers and paper submission policy:
Paper and poster proposals should not have been previously published. More than one abstract per author can be submitted. All submissions will be reviewed anonymously by the scientific committee and evaluated in terms of rigour, clarity and significance of the contribution, as well as its relevance to research on L2 temporality. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words (excluding title and optional references). All presenters are invited to submit their work for the Selected Proceedings of the Conference, which will be published as a special issue by an international journal still to be announced.
