Special Theme:

Narrative Pragmatics: Culture, Cognition, Context

As in all earlier editions of the International Pragmatics Conferences, the conference is open to all other pragmatics-related topics as well (where pragmatics is conceived broadly as a cognitive, social, and cultural perspective on language and communication).

Conference Chair:

2nd Call for Papers:

Note that the deadline for submitting panel proposals is now past. A list of accepted panels will be published on the IPrA website at the beginning of October.

1 November 2012 is the deadline for all panel contributions, lectures, and posters.

Note also that IPrA (International Pragmatics Association) membership is required for submitting an abstract as well as for presenting during the conference, and that membership always runs from 1 January to 31 December, no matter at what time in the year it is applied for. Membership can be arranged instantly at http://ipra.ua.ac.be.

All submission procedures are web-based!

Types of Abstracts/Events:

Panel proposals can no longer be submitted. Though it is the panel organizer(s) of accepted panel proposals who take(s) active responsibility for the quality of the contributions to their panel (i.e. they decide what is accepted), abstracts should, for all panel contributions, be submitted by the individual contributors separately by the 1 November 2012 deadline that is also handled for individual submissions (see below). No one can submit contributions to panels without the prior consent of the panel organizer(s). As a list of accepted panels will be available at the beginning of October, prospective participants are of course welcome to seek such prior consent by contacting the organizer(s) of the panel of their choice. As the number of slots for panels is limited, however, most participants will have to make an individual submission.

Individual proposals for lectures and posters should take the form of a brief abstract (equivalent to max. one average A4 or Standard-size page, single spacing, Times pt 12; i.e. ca 500 words); mind the 1 November 2012 deadline. It is the individual submitter's choice to submit for oral presentation (lecture) or a poster. For oral presentations, 30-minute slots will be available (including discussion time and time for moving between sessions). Posters will be up for the whole week; during one of the conference days, there is a poster period during which all other conference activities are blocked so that attention goes exclusively to looking at and discussing posters. IPrA actively encourages the submission of posters; experience tells us that they often lead to more serious interaction and result in more lasting and fruitful contacts than oral presentations.

Because of heavy competition for slots in the program, no-one can be considered for more than one contribution of which he or she is the first author (whether panel contributions, lectures or posters). Anyone may be involved in a second or even a third paper if someone else is the first author and will be present at the conference as well. In the case of multiple authorship, the web-based submission system recognizes as first author only the one who handles the submission process. While there is a restriction on the number of contributions of which one may be the first author (one only!), presenting a paper is always compatible with taking the role of organizer of a panel or acting as a discussant in a panel.

Note that abstracts should not be programmatic; they should be based on research that is clearly in progress, with a well-formulated research question, and with a good description of the types of data used (if the work is empirical) and of the approach. For posters, a clear description of a research design may be acceptable, as this can lead to useful discussions in the early stages of a project.
