Call for papers
Proposals are invited for 20 minute presentations, posters or thematic sessions on any area of multilingualism (e.g., L1/L2 acquisition, linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, education, multilingual societies, etc.). A more comprehensive listing of possible topics can be found in the official call for papers.
Prospective presenters are requested to submit a anonymous 500-word abstract (exclusive of references; total length with examples and references should not exceed one page), indicating whether they are wish to be considered for an oral presentation or a poster. Authors should not submit more than one presentations as first authors. The proposals will be subjected to blind peer-review, and the preferred format (paper or poster) will not affect one’s chances of success. All submissions should be uploaded to EasyChair by 25 September 2014.
Thematic sessions on narrowly defined topics of interest will be allocated 120-minute blocks. Proposals for thematic sessions should include a 500-word general abstract, a .pdf file containing anonymous abstracts for each presentation (each abstract should follow the same guidelines as the ones for individual papers, above), and author information. As above, proposals are to be submitted through EasyChair by 25 September 2014, and the “thematic session” option should be selected.
Notification of acceptance will be given by 1 December 2014. Queries should be addressed to isb10.contact[at]gmail[dot]com.
