Abstract Submission Policy:

Each author may submit no more than one single-authored and one co-authored (i.e. not first-authored) abstract to be considered for oral presentations, including colloquia and doctoral workshops. More than one abstract can be submitted for poster presentations. Paper and poster proposals should not have been previously published. All submissions will be reviewed anonymously by the scientific committee and evaluated in terms of rigour, clarity and significance of the contribution, as well as its relevance to second language research. Abstracts should not exceed 450 words (excluding the title, but including optional references).

Individual Papers and Posters:

Papers will be allocated 20 minutes for presentation plus 5 minutes for discussion. Poster sessions will be held in two 90-minute slots. In order to foster interaction, all other sessions will be suspended during the poster sessions.

Thematic Colloquia:

The Thematic colloquia will be organised in two-hour slots running in parallel with other sessions. Each colloquium will focus on one specific topic, and will bring together key contributions to the topic. Colloquium convenors should allocate time for opening and closing remarks, individual papers, discussants (if included) and general discussion.

Doctoral Student Workshop:

The doctoral student workshop is intended to serve as a platform for discussion of ongoing PhD research within any aspect of second language research. PhD students are invited to submit an abstract for a 10-15-minute presentation. The abstract and the presentation should include one or two questions on which the student would like to receive audience feedback (e.g. data collection, analysis, theoretical or methodological issues), and sufficient background information for framing the questions. These sessions are not intended as opportunities to present research results, but to discuss future directions. Students whose abstracts are accepted will then be required to send their paper to a discussant (a senior researcher). The discussant will lead a 10-15-minute feedback/discussion session on their work.

Publication of Papers:

A selection of papers presented at EUROSLA 2014 will be published in the EUROSLA 24 Yearbook following a peer-review process. There is an annual prize for the best EUROSLA Yearbook article. This includes a framed certificate presented at the EUROSLA General Assembly, a fee waiver for the following EUROSLA conference and conference dinner, and free EUROSLA membership for a year.
