Meeting Description:

The Centre for Applied Linguistics at the University of Warwick is pleased to announce its 17 Postgraduate Conference on Tuesday, 24 and Wednesday, 25 June 2014.

The postgraduate conference covers a wide range of topics including language teaching, intercultural communication, and academic discourse. The aim of the conference is to provide postgraduate students with the opportunity to present their research, to attend experts’ keynote presentations, to meet peers who engage in similar research activities and to get valuable feedback on their research.

The esteemed keynote speakers that will be in attendance at this year’s postgraduate conference are:

Professor Martha Maznevski (International Institute for Management Development, IMD) & Professor Steve Walsh (Newcastle University)

Call for Papers:

We invite postgraduate students (Masters and PhD) to submit an abstract for either a paper or a poster presentation on one but not limited to the following themes:

- English Language Learning, Teaching, and Assessment (ELLTA) http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/al/research/groups/ellta/

- Professional and Academic Discourse (PAD) http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/al/research/groups/pad/

- Working and Communicating Across Cultures (WACC) http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/soc/al/research/groups/wacc/

We particularly encourage submissions of empirical, conceptual/theoretical nature as well as findings from dissertations/PhD theses at different stages. Abstracts are for either paper or poster presentations. You may apply to present either individually or as a group (max. 3).

Submission deadline of abstracts is Monday, 28 April 2014.

Your abstract must include the following information:

- The title
- Name(s) of the author(s)
- Affiliation
- Paper/poster presentation

Abstracts should be no more than 250 words in length (excluding the above information). They must be submitted using our online abstract submission form. Abstracts will be selected and approved by the conference committee. Accepted papers and posters will be notified by Monday, 12th May 2014.

Paper Presentations:

Each paper will be allocated 20 minutes for presentation, followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

Poster Presentations:

The aim of academic posters is to draw attention to on-going or completed projects or research. As standing displays, poster content should be brief and to the point rather than presenting complex data. They should be designed in an attractive and clear way, using diagrams, graphs, tables, etc. rather than long texts.

Poster Dimensions and Material:

The recommended poster size is A0 size portrait (841 mm wide x 1189 mm long) or similar. Please, consider that the most appropriate material is paper or thin cardboard. Heavy materials may be difficult to be attached on the board. The organizers will provide the appropriate material to attach the posters.
