Call for Papers:

Conference papers may thus involve an examination of language structure, as well as of language in its social/cultural setting.

We invite papers addressing one of the following conference strands:

1. The interfaces between different levels of linguistic structure (e.g. intonation, syntax, semantics) and their possible applied aspects
2. The relationship between linguistic and extra-linguistic information (as evident in the dichotomies of public vs. private, social/cultural vs. individual, original vs. translated, virtual vs. face-to-face, varieties vs. standard language, and any other similar dichotomies considered relevant by the speaker)
3. Mirjana Vilke, the first CALS President, and her legacy

The official languages of the conference are Croatian, English and German.

Submission of Abstracts:

Presenters may submit only one paper proposal (as presenters or co-presenters).

Abstracts (no more than 300 words excluding references, in the language of the presentation and one other official language) should be anonymous and sent as attachments in .pdf and .doc formats using the submission form available at: http://www.hdpl.hr. Please write 'HDPL 2012' in the subject line. The body of the email should contain the following data in the order given below: name, email address, telephone number, conference strand number and the language of the presentation.

The abstracts should clearly state the problem to be addressed, the research hypotheses, the methodology to be used and the potential contribution of the paper.

All abstracts will be blind reviewed by two reviewers. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstracts, distributed to all the participants.

Each presentation will be given 20 minutes, followed by a 10-minute discussion period.

Send the abstracts to: hdpl.conferencegmail.com.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts: 9 March 2012
The notification of acceptance will be provided by: 31 March 2012
