GENERAL SESSION: Individual papers will be allotted 20 minutes of
presentation plus 10 minutes for discussion.

PANELS: There will be 4 thematic panels this year as listed
above. Individual papers will be allotted 20 minutes of presentation
plus 10 minutes of discussion. Presenter are also expected to
participate in a general discussion session led by the panel
organiser, following the paper presentations.
DOCTORAL WORKSHOP: This will focus on methodology with regard to
either data analysis or research design or the goodness of fit between
theory and method. 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.

Following association policy, EUROSLA 2003 will be a multilingual
conference: presentation in any European language is acceptable
although presenters should bear in mind the usefulness of attracting a
wide audience for their ideas. A selection of the most innovative
papers will be included in the EUROSLA Yearbook, published in English
by the John Benjamins Publishing Co.
