Call for papers, posters and panels

We invite submission of abstracts for papers, posters and panels on any topic relevant to the conference themes.

For this conference, we are requesting extended abstracts (750-1500 words), as we do not plan to produce a volume of conference proceedings. All abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the conference programme committee.

The call for papers is now closed.

Paper presentations will consist of a 20 minute talk followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Please note: paper submissions should present either complete research, or research in progress where at least some substantial results have been achieved. Work in progress which has yet to produce results can be submitted as a poster abstract – see below.

Submissions for panel discussions should take the form of a single 1500 word abstract on behalf of all speakers to be on the panel. The abstract should include a note to specify whether the panel is intended to be 1 hour or 1.5 hours in length.

Submissions for poster presentations should be shorter (400-750 words). We especially welcome poster abstracts that (a) report on innovative research that is in its very earliest phases (b) report on new software or corpus data resources.

We especially encourage abstract submissions from early-career researchers, including postgraduate research students and postdoctoral researchers.

All abstracts must be submitted via the conference website at http://corpora.lancs.ac.uk/submission.

The EXTENDED final deadline for submission is 15th January 2013.

Archived copies of the call for papers can be accessed through the announcements and circulars page.
