EUROSLA12 - 2nd Call for Papers
Annual Conference of the European Second Language Association
University of Basel, Switzerland, 18-21 Sept. 2002

Organized by the University of Basel and the Swiss Association of Applied
Linguistics (VALS/ASLA).

Ulrich Dausendsch�n-Gay (Universit�t Bielefeld)
Daniel Gaonac'h (Universit� de Poitiers)
Tim McNamara (University of Melbourne)
Christiane von Stutterheim (Universit�t Heidelberg)

PAPERS are invited on every aspect of empirical and theoretical second
language acquisition research:

- INDIVIDUAL PAPERS : individual papers will be allotted 20 minutes of
presentation plus 10 minutes for discussion. Submissions should include, in
the following order, the title of the paper, name and affiliation of the
author(s), an abstract of 300 words, followed by the author's postal and
email addresses.

- PANELS : panels covering one or two 90 minutes time-slots and focussing
on a specific topic can be proposed by a panel organizer. A panel can
consist of closely related papers or be organized as a round table or a
data session. Submissions should include, in the following order, the title
of the panel, a 600 word abstract (which clearly points out the thematic
coherence of the panel), the number of time-slots covered (1 or 2), the
participants' names and affiliations plus the organizer's name, affiliation
and postal and email addresses.

- DOCTORAL WORKSHOPS : doctoral workshops focus on problems of methodology
with regard to either data analysis (interpretation of natural
conversation, statistical data, interviews, etc.) or research design
(experimental design, corpus design, issues of data collection, etc.). Each
presentation lasts 20 minutes and will be followed by a 10 minute reaction
by a senior researcher and 10 minutes of discussion. Submissions should
follow the same formal conventions as individual papers (see above). State
briefly the aim and the theoretical framework of your work and then raise
the methodological problems you submit for discussion. If your presentation
is accepted, you will be asked to send a more extensive summary to the
discussant of your paper.

EUROSLA12 will be a trilingual conference (English, German and French);
presentations in one of these languages are particularly encouraged, though
any European language is accepted. A selection of the most innovative
papers will be included in the EUROSLA Yearbook, published in English by
the John Benjamins Publishing Co.

submission is not possible, please send a 3.5'' floppy disk to our mailing
