The European Second
Language Association (EuroSLA) is a society for people with a research interest in
second languages. EuroSLA has grown from small beginnings to become a large
international group of scholars. We welcome new members whatever your nationality,
your geographical location or your theoretical and methodological preferences. Our
annual conferences are organised by members of the society in different European
countries each year. EuroSLA conferences aim to bring together researchers from
different disciplines who investigate the acquisition, use, and processing of
language in situations where more than one language is involved.
The academic programme will consist of presentations by the
participants and the invited keynote speakers (Raphael Berthele (Fribourg,
Switzerland), Claudia Felser (Potsdam, Germany), Johanne Paradis (Edmonton, Canada),
Marianne Starren (Nijmegen, The Netherlands)), as well as the doctoral student
workshop, and the Language Learning Roundtable (topic: the relation between learner
grammar and input).

the content and the clarity of the abstract, contribution to the field and thematic
relevance. Colloquia will also be assessed according to range and coherence of the

student workshop, or poster: max. 3000 characters (incl. spaces), including
- Colloquium: general abstract (max. 2000 characters (incl. spaces),
including references) + abstracts for each paper (each max. 3000 characters (incl.
spaces), including references). The general abstract should describe the topic of
the colloquium and thus enable the reviewer to assess range and coherence of the
papers. A colloquium as a whole can only be accepted if the overall quality of all
included abstracts is high enough. If a colloquium is rejected, individual papers
can still be accepted as papers in parallel sessions. Please note that only a
limited number of colloquia can be accepted.

other European languages.
Each participant can
appear as the first author of one presentation only. A colloquium convener can also
