Contributions should be anonymized and submitted via the online conference system, and will be peer-reviewed by the scientific committee. (Visit the online submission link)

For talks, we request short papers (2-4 pages) in English, following the template which you can download at for MSWord (40 kB) or at for LaTeX (260 kB). Authors of accepted papers can present their work at the conference in a 20 minute talk followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Accepted short papers will be published in online proceedings before the conference. After the conference, there will be an open call for extended papers to be published in a special issue of European Journal of Applied Linguistics (EuJAL), to appear in 2019.

Authors of accepted abstracts can present their poster and/or give their demonstration during the poster session, which will be opened by one-minute ‘teaser talks’. Accepted abstracts will be printed in the book of abstracts.
