Individual papers will be 30 minutes (20 minutes for presentation plus 10 minutes for discussion).

Posters are intended as a separate format for compact research reports.

Doctoral Student Workshops:

EUROSLA 17 will also include a doctoral student workshop which is intended to serve as a platform (and encouraging environment) for the discussion of ongoing PhD research (on any aspect of SLA). PhD students are invited to submit an abstract of a 15 minute presentation focusing on theoretical or methodological issues. Presenters in this category should send a copy of their presentation to the discussant one month before the conference. This will form the basis of the 15 minute feedback/ discussion session.

Submissions for the doctoral student workshop should include the following:

1. Title of the paper
