Meeting Description:

UPCEL 2022, the 4th International UCM Predoctoral Conference on English Linguistics, will take place at the Facultad de Filología, Universidad Complutense on 24-25 January 2022. This conference, entitled ''English on the move: discourse and cognitive-functional approaches to linguistic variation'', is organized by the PhD Programme in English Linguistics at UCM.

UPCEL gatherings are envisaged as a forum in which doctoral candidates and young researchers in English linguistics can share their research in an inclusive, dynamic, and supportive environment. The steering committee is pleased to invite postgraduate students (master’s and predoctoral) as well as early-career researchers in English Linguistics to submit their abstracts to participate in the fourth edition of the UPCEL conference series.

This year’s conference theme is “English on the move: discourse and cognitive-functional approaches to linguistic variation.” We welcome proposals on English (alone or in contrast to other languages) from a broad range of linguistic disciplines, especially those in line with –but not limited to– our conference theme.

Call for Papers:

Submission is open for both oral presentations and posters:

- Oral presentations will last 20 minutes and will be followed by 10 minutes for discussion.
- Posters will be presented in a dedicated session and will remain on display in key areas during the conference.

Each participant may submit a maximum of two proposals in English (i.e., a single-authored abstract and a co-authored one or two co-authored abstracts). Proposals must clearly state the research questions, methodology, data and (expected) results. They should not exceed 500 words, including references and keywords, and must be submitted through EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=upcel2022) before September 14, 2021.

Each abstract must be accompanied by the following information, to be included in the EasyChair platform:
- Author information (full name(s), affiliation and e-mail address)
- Title of the presentation
- Type of contribution (oral presentation or poster)
- 3-5 keywords
