Symposium abstract submission
Every symposium has one convener; he/she is responsible for organizing the symposium and will act as the onlycontact person.
Prospective convenors may submit not more than one proposal for a symposium. Convening a symposium does not preclude participation as a presenter in other symposia or being first author on a poster.
Symposia consist of 4 (or 5) presentations. The full symposium abstract is divided into (1) an abstract for the symposium as a whole and (2) individual abstracts for each of the presentations contained in the symposium. Each abstract (for the symposium as well as for the individual presentations) must stay within 300 words. Each abstract must have a title.
The symposium abstract must contain a statement of its theme and overall goal.
Each abstract for the presentations within a symposium should contain a concise statement of (i) the research question, (ii) methods, (iii) results, and (iv) a conclusion. Up to 3 references may be added and will not be included in the word count. To make the reviewing procedure fully anonymous, do not include references by any of the authors involved. A symposium slot is always two hours. It is the task of the convener to make the precise programming within the slot (e.g. presentation time, discussion time etc.)
The symposium abstract must be submitted using the official abstract web form. Abstracts are submitted in English. Author names will be processed by the abstract handling system.
Key words: the symposium convener has the task of indicating (on the web form) the categories that best represent the symposium submission (see below).
Poster abstract submission
The first author will act as the only contact person.
Prospective poster presenters may submit not more than one poster proposal of which they are the first author. Being first author of a poster does not preclude contributing to other posters as co-author or being convenor of a symposium.
The abstract (maximum 300 words) should contain a concise statement of (i) the problem under investigation, (ii) the empirical methods used, (iii) the results obtained, and (iv) a conclusion. Up to 3 references may be added and will not be included in the word count. To make the reviewing procedure fully anonymous, do not include references by any of the authors involved.
The poster abstract must be submitted on the official abstract web form by the first author. Abstracts are submitted in English. Author names will be processed by the abstract handling system.
Key words: the first author has the task of indicating (on the web form) the categories that best represent the contribution.
Please note: Layout requirements for the poster will be published later.
Book of abstracts
The book of abstracts will be available before the conference but in electronic form only. Abstracts will not be edited. The authors thus are responsible for the abstract as it appears in the book of abstracts.
For the purpose of reviewing and programming, abstracts will be organized on the basis of categories related to (1) a general research area and (2) to a particular linguistic area. When submitting your abstract, please indicate on the web form which category in the two lists best represent your contribution. The categories are listed below in alphabetical order. They also indicate the scope of the subject matter of IASCL 2014.
