We encourage graduate students to submit original research that contribute to an understanding of English language use, learning, and teaching. We also welcome cross-disciplinary proposals. We strongly encourage graduate students to consider Research Discussions for submissions of works in progress and pilot research.

We welcome proposals for the following categories:

Paper Presentation: 30 minutes (20 minutes of presentation and 10 minutes of discussion)

A presentation on any practical or theoretical aspect of language teaching or research. Both individual and group presentations are encouraged.

Panel: 60 minutes (45 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes of discussion)

A forum for a group of presenters (up to three panelists) to discuss a current teaching or research issue in the field.

Research Discussion: 30 minutes (10 minutes of presentation and 20 minutes of discussion)

An informal in-depth discussion between presenter and attendees. The presenter will spend no longer than 10 minutes speaking about his/her research. The remaining time will allow attendees to discuss the topic, ask questions, and provide feedback to the presenter with respect to his/her research project. This session type may be particularly useful for those students who are currently working on their dissertations or other research projects.
