Meeting Description:

5th International Free Linguistics Conference
8-9 October 2011
University of Sydney
http://www.freelinguistics.org

The aim of this conference is to provide scholars, researchers, postgraduate and undergraduate students with current research issues from all fields of linguistics & TESOL an open and widely accessible forum.

The main feature that distinguishes this conference is its focus on freedom:

- Freedom from linguistic subfield divisions,
- Freedom from an established and rigid theme for presentations, and
- Freedom from fees!

Featured focus speakers include:

William S. Greaves & Jim Benson (York University, Canada)
Andy Kirkpatrick (Griffith University, Australia)
Peter R.R. White (University of New South Wales, Australia)

Call for Papers:

Authors are invited to submit abstracts for papers, colloquia, poster presentations, or hot topics.

- Single papers (abstract max of 250 words): Papers will be 40 minutes in length, with 30 minutes for presentation, 10 minutes for questions/discussion.

- Colloquia (abstract max of 250 words): Colloquia will be 90 minutes in length. Their internal structure is up to their organizers, but sufficient time for discussion is encouraged.

- Poster presentations (abstract max of 250 words): Poster presentations will be given in groups with a 30-minute allotment per session. This format may suit young researchers who want to present their work in a less formal format.

- Hot topics (abstract max of 250 words): Hot topic talks will be 20 minutes in length, with 10 minutes for the talk and 10 minutes for Q&A/discussion. We especially welcome proposals in this category from young researchers/students with new and challenging ideas.

Abstracts are invited from any linguistic (and TESOL) sub-fields, and presenters may choose from the following strands:

Aboriginal Languages, Cognitive Linguistics, Computational Linguistics, Conversation Analysis, Corpus Linguistics, Critical Applied Linguistics, Discourse Analysis, First Language Acquisition, Forensic Linguistics, Historical Linguistics, Language & Culture, Language in Education, Language Policy & Planning, Languages Other Than English (LOTE), Multilingualism, Natural Language Processing, Pragmatics, Psycholinguistics, Second/Additional Language Acquisition, Sociolinguistics, Systemic Functional Linguistics, TESOL, Translation, Interpretation, Other.

Abstract Submission Deadline: 30 June 2011

administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without 
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company 
operates such a program.
