Guidelines for submission: workshop proposals and papers, posters and general session papers

15 January 2014 is the deadline for all abstracts (workshop and general sessions papers and poster session). Notification of acceptance will be given by 31 March 2014.

WORKSHOP AND GENERAL SESSION PAPERS. Abstracts should not exceed 500 words (exclusive of references) and should clearly state research questions, approach, method, data and (expected) results.

Abstracts should be registered and submitted via the Submit Abstract form, where you can upload an attachment. Abstracts should have the same title as the entry submitted via the Submit abstract form. Abstracts should not mention the presenter(s) nor their affiliations or addresses. Only references mentioned in the text can be listed. Check the final abstract carefully before submission. Abstracts will not be edited for typing, spelling, or grammatical errors after submission. Submit the abstract as a Word document. If it contains special characters, please send a PDF version to sle@ugr.es.

Abstracts must be single-spaced and fully justified. The standard font will be Calibri, size 10. The margins will be 2.54 top/bottom and 1.91 left/right (moderate in MS Word). References will have a hanging indent of 1.27 cm.

POSTERS. The next SLE meeting will hold a poster session of an hour for both senior and junior researchers. In order to foster interaction, all other sessions will be suspended during the poster session. Posters may remain available during the rest of the conference. The maximum size of the poster is 1.10 m (vertical) x 1 m (horizontal). For more information about how to make a good poster, click here.

MULTIPLE PAPERS. One person may submit a single-authored abstract, a single-authored abstract and a co-authored one (not as first author) or two co-authored abstracts (only one as first author). Note that keynote papers within workshops count as ordinary papers. Presentations will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes question time.

EVALUATION. All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by three referees. Abstracts submitted to the general session and to the poster session will be evaluated by three members of the Scientific Committee. Workshop papers receive two evaluations by the Scientific Committee members and one by the workshop convenors. The threshold for acceptance is the same for general session, poster and workshop abstracts. The acceptance of a paper does not depend on the kind of the topic proposed, but depends only on the quality of the abstract.

Prize for the best presentation and the best poster

There will be a prize for the best oral presentation by a PhD student, a prize for the best oral presentation by a postdoc and a prize for the best poster (see SLE 2012 and SLE 2013 awards).

For current purposes, PhD-students are students that have not completed their PhD before the conference. Postdocs have completed their PhD not earlier than January 2011. A nominated paper may be co-authored; in such a case the nominee will be the first author.

Applicants are invited to mark the option referring to the prize when they register their abstract. On the basis of the ranking of the abstracts, the Scientific Committee will set up an internal shortlist with nominees for the prizes.

Members of the Editorial Board of Folia Linguistica (Historica) and the Scientific Committee will decide who will be awarded the first prize of 500 Euros in each category as well as the 2nd and 3rd prize, which is a three-year SLE membership.

Registration

Registration will start on 1 April 2014. SLE meetings are member only conferences. That is, all participants with a paper in the program will have to be members. The early bird conference fee for members will be 170 Euros.

How to get to Poznań

Poznań is easily accessible by air, road, train or bus. It is located about half way between Warsaw (280 km) and Berlin (240 km), and there are good, frequent rail connections between those two cities and Poznań. Poznań's Ławica airport has frequent daily connections with Warsaw (LOT Polish Airlines), as well as Copenhagen (SAS), Munich and Frankfurt (LOT and Lufthansa). Poznań is also served by low-cost carriers that fly directly from a number of cities in the UK, Spain, Italy, Sweden and other European countries.
