13th International Cognitive Linguistics Conference (ICLC13)
20-25 July 2015, Northumbria University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK
This is a final call for abstracts for the 13th International Cognitive Linguistics Conference to be held at Northumbria University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK, 20-25 July 2015. The deadline for all abstracts (for the general session, poster session, and previously submitted theme sessions) is Monday, 3 November 2014.
We invite a broad range of papers taking a cognitive, functional, typological, and discourse approach to the study of language and cognition. The special theme of ICLC13 is “bringing together theory and method”. We welcome papers that demonstrate, or reflect upon, the successful union of modern empirical methods with sound theory.
A (non-exhaustive) list of potential topics is provided on the conference homepage http://www.northumbria.ac.uk/iclc13. Go to: Call for Papers > Potential Topics.
The language of the conference is English. Both general and theme (parallel) session talks will be allocated 25 minutes, which includes time for questions and discussion. Posters will stay up for a day and will be allocated to dedicated, timetabled sessions.
Each author may submit maximally one single-authored and one co-authored paper, regardless of whether they are intended for the general or a special theme session. All abstracts must be submitted electronically through EasyAbs:
The submission period is 1 August – 3 November 2014.
Abstracts must not exceed 1 page of A4 (including title, data, figures and references), and should be formatted in the following way. Please use 10 point Arial (Unicode) font, single-spaced and set margins to 1 inch (2.54cm) all around. Abstracts will be subjected to blind review by a minimum of two referees from an international Scientific Committee, so author names should not appear anywhere on abstracts (you may cite yourself as [Author] or in the third person for previously published work). Please include a list of five keywords that describe the research at the top of the abstract to assist the reviewing process.
Theme session authors should also make sure to note the title of the theme session at the top of their abstracts.
Authors must include the following information on the EasyAbs web page: (1) name(s) of author(s); (2) affiliation(s); (3) email address; and (4) preference for general, theme or poster presentation. Authors should upload .pdf versions of their abstracts to preserve special formatting or fonts.
