Meeting Description:

The 5th International Conference of the German Cognitive Linguistics Association will be held from October 10-12, 2012 at the University of Freiburg. The focus of the conference will be 'Cognitive Linguistics in the World: Situated and Embodied Approaches'.

Call for Papers:

We look forward to your abstracts dealing with topics in cognitive-functional linguistics. A special focus of the conference will be on situated and embodied cognition - we thus especially encourage the submission of papers that engage with the real-world behavior of language users. Beyond that, we welcome contributions dealing with all research areas of cognitive linguistics as well as contributions taking a cognitive perspective on language on the basis of methods from psychology, psycholinguistics, corpus linguistics, historical linguistics and artificial intelligence or explorations of the connections between these disciplines and cognitive linguistics.

Conference languages are English and German.

There are two types of presentation: 20-minute oral presentations (plus 10 minutes question period) and poster presentations.

Please submit your abstract by February 15, 2012 via email to dgkl2012googlemail.com.

The subject line of your email should be 'Abstract Submission - AUTHOR NAME(S)'.

The file name of your abstract should consist of the first five letters of your last name, followed by the first three letters of your first name.

The main body of your email message should contain the following information:

Title of your presentation
Name(s) of author(s)
Affiliation
Email address for correspondence
3-5 key words
Preferred presentation type (oral or poster)

When preparing your abstract, please note:

The abstract should be no longer than 500 words (plus references).
Please give your presentation a clear, descriptive title.
The abstract should not contain your name(s), as abstracts will be reviewed anonymously.
Please keep figures and diagrams to a minimum. If they are necessary, please embed them in the file in a standard graphics format (png, jpeg).
Permissible filetypes are (in order of preference): odf, rtf, txt, pdf or doc.
The abstracts will be reviewed on the basis of the following criteria:

Topical relevance
Originality
Clear structure
Plausible argumentation

Theme Sessions:

In addition to the general sessions, the conference will include up to six theme sessions dealing with specific topics in cognitive-functional linguistics. As in the case of the general sessions, these topics include all research areas of cognitive linguistics as well as topics focusing on connections to psychology, psycholinguistics and artificial intelligence. Theme sessions are expected to conform to the 30-minute rhythm of the general sessions and may contain up to seven 30-minute slots.

The main body of your email message should contain the following information:

Title of the theme session
Name(s) of organizer(s)
Affiliation
Email address for correspondence
3-5 key words
Titles and names of individual talks

When preparing your theme session proposal, please note:

The description of the theme session should be no longer than 500 words (plus references).
The abstracts of the individual talks should be contained in the same file as the description of the theme session and should be no longer than 200 words each.
Please give your theme session and the individual talks clear, descriptive titles.
The proposal should not contain the names of authors and organizers, as proposals will be reviewed anonymously.
Please keep figures and diagrams to a minimum. If they are necessary, please embed them in the file in a standard graphics format (png, jpeg)
Permissible filetypes are (in order of preference): odf, rtf, txt, pdf or doc.

Each theme session proposal will be reviewed as a whole. Organizers are thus asked to ensure a high quality of the individual contributions. The proposals will be reviewed on the basis of the following criteria:

Topical coherence
Cross-references among the individual contributions
Topical relevance
Originality
Clear structure
Plausible argumentation

General Remarks Concerning Submission:

Submission by email always carries the risk that individual emails will be caught by spam filters. Thus, if you have not received an acknowledgement that your submission has been received within a week after submission, please contact the conference committee by email.
