Meeting Description:

The Association for the Study of Language Acquisition AEAL (Asociación para el Estudio de la Adquisición del Lenguaje) is oriented to the study of the acquisition and learning of Spanish, Catalan, Galician and Basque languages by children and adolescents. Its triennial conference is a great occasion for meeting experts in language acquisition working in a varied set of areas such as grammar, lexicon, discourse, pragmatics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, sociolinguistics, language didactics and pedagogy.

This conference will deal with issues concerning oral and written language comprehension, production and processing in the following areas:

Phonetic and phonological development
Lexical-semantic development
Morphosyntactic development
Discourse and pragmatic development
Atypical language development
Didactic intervention and language development
Sign languages development

VII AEAL Conference will focus its attention on language research dealing with the bilingual and multilingual and acquisition of any of the four languages of reference and other languages in contact with any of them as well, especially on studies involving a minorized language.

AEAL 2013 is organized by HIJE (Language Acquisition and Use) UPV/EHU research group with the help of UNESCO Chair of World Language Heritage (http://www.unesco-hizkuntza-katedra.ehu.es).

Call for Papers:

Three Forms of Participation:

Oral Presentations:

This format is best suited to the presentation of theoretical or empirical completed research. Paper presentations are 20 minutes and are followed by 10 minutes for questions and comments from the audience. In the case of conceptual research, the proposal should discuss an approach or a critical issue, and provide significant new insights. In the case of empirical studies, the proposal should in general include objectives of the study, study design and methods, results, and conclusions. The proposal must not exceed 300 words.

A 100-word abstract of the proposal is also needed for inclusion in the conference program.


Symposia involve multiple presenters focusing on a single theme and are best suited for the discussion of research, theory, practice and associated issues. They should offer complementary or differing perspectives on an important topic or issue that can stimulate wider discussion rather than be a series of independent presentations. Symposia are restricted to 90 minutes, including up to four individual presenters, a moderator and an independent discussant. An organizer may also act as a participant or moderator. Evidence of careful planning for the implementation of the symposium (e.g., goals, timing, summaries of perspectives, etc.) should be included in the proposal. The proposal should include a 350 word summary of the topic, focusing on how the perspectives represented in the individual papers are complementary or distinct. In addition, abstracts of individual papers not exceeding 300 words each should be included.


Posters provide an opportunity to present research in progress and to participate to junior researchers. Posters are displayed on a specific day. Presenters should be available to discuss their work and answer questions. The summary must not exceed 300 words.

A 100-word abstract of the proposal is also needed for inclusion in the conference program.

Note that a blind review process will be employed. Hence, any information that might identify author(s) must be omitted from the summary and the abstract.

Abstracts should be submitted online:


Deadline for abstract submission: 15 January 2013
