2nd Call for Papers:

Presentation Formats:

Full papers will be allowed 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for discussion. Posters will be presented in a special session and remain on display during the conference.

Submission of Abstracts:

Abstracts for General Session papers and posters can be submitted from 1 May to 30 November 2013 through the EasyAbs abstract submission facility at http://linguistlist.org/confservices/ICEHL18.

Abstracts for workshop papers need to be sent to the workshop convenor by 30 September; after acceptance of the workshop, abstracts need to be submitted through http://linguistlist.org/confservices/ICEHL18 by 30 November 2013 (see below). Notifications of acceptance of all abstracts will be sent out by 15 February 2014.

Abstracts should not exceed 400 words (exclusive of references) and should clearly state research questions, approach, method, data and (expected) results. Abstracts should also list up to five keywords.

Abstracts will not be edited for typing, spelling, or grammatical errors after submission. Therefore, abstracts should comply with the following layout requirements:

- Abstracts must be single-spaced and fully justified. The standard font will be Calibri, size 11. The margins will be 2,54 top/bottom and 1,91 left/right (Moderate in MS Word).
- References will have a hanging indent of 1,27 cm.
- Submit the abstract as a .doc, .docx or .odt document. If it contains special characters, please send a PDF version to icehl18arts.kuleuven.be.

Workshops:

A total of four workshops can be scheduled (one per day).

Proposals for workshops are invited by 30 September 2013. The address for submission is icehl18arts.kuleuven.be.

Notification of acceptance/rejection will be given by 30 October 2013. After a workshop proposal has been accepted, the convenors will be requested to invite their participants to submit their abstracts through the abstract submission facility EasyAbs at http://linguistlist.org/confservices/ICEHL18 by 30 November 2013. These abstracts will be evaluated individually by the Scientific Committee and the convenors.

Workshop proposals should contain:

- a 1000-word description of the topic (including the research questions to be addressed) and
- a (provisional) list of workshop participants and 400-word abstracts of their papers.

We encourage workshop convenors to distribute an open call for papers on The LINGUIST List (announce your Call for Papers as a session of ICEHL18) and other fora.

Since we want conference participants to be able to attend individual workshop presentations, ICEHL18 workshops have to be compatible with the main conference schedule. This means that the format of the workshops must be organized around 30 minute presentations (20 min. + 10 min. discussion). Workshops ideally contain 8 to 10 slots and comprise:

- an introductory paper by the convenor(s) or by a key-note speaker, which summarizes previous research, specifies the approach(es) to be taken and sets the scope of the papers to be presented;
- 6 to 8 papers; and
- a slot for final discussion on the topics covered by the papers, methodological issues and questions for future research.

Further details can be discussed with the ICEHL18 organizing committee.

Multiple Papers:

One person may submit a single-authored abstract, a single-authored abstract and a co-authored one (not as first author) or two co-authored abstracts (only one as first author). Note that keynote papers within workshops count as ordinary papers. Presentations will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes question time.

Evaluation:

Workshop proposals contain the names of convenors and participants and will be evaluated and ranked by members of the Scientific Committee.

Abstracts submitted to the general session and to the poster session will be evaluated by two members of the Scientific Committee. Workshop papers receive two evaluations by Scientific Committee members and one by the workshop convenors.
