Meeting Description:

After the success of the International Conference on Multilingual and Multicultural Learning: Policies and Practices MMLPP at Charles University in Prague, CZECHIA in December 2019, the MultiLingNet community is pleased to announce that the second edition will take place in Cracow, POLAND on 2 – 3 December 2021. This year’s edition of MLPP Conference will be held at the Novotel Kraków Centrum Hotel situated right in the centre of the city.
The international health crisis created by the coronavirus has become unpredictable, and therefore we are planning to hold the MLPP Conference outside a university campus as restrictions regarding public gatherings at universities are still in force. We are constantly monitoring the epidemic situation in Poland, Europe and outside as this event is intended to take place in a safe and healthy environment.

The conference considers all aspects of the linguistic and sociolinguistic competences and practices of bi-/multilingual speakers who cross existing social, cultural and linguistic boundaries, adopting or adapting themselves to new and overlapping linguistic spaces. We invite papers in all areas of research in bi-/multilingualism, whether or not linked directly to the overarching conference theme, including, but not limited to, linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, clinical linguistics, education, bi-/multilingual societies and multiculturalism.

Call for Papers:

The conference considers all aspects of the linguistic and sociolinguistic competences and practices of bi-/multilingual speakers who cross existing social, cultural and linguistic boundaries, adopting or adapting themselves to new and overlapping linguistic spaces. We invite papers in all areas of research in bi-/multilingualism, whether or not linked directly to the overarching conference theme, including, but not limited to, linguistics, sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, clinical linguistics, education, bi-/multilingual societies and multiculturalism.

Topics will include:
- (multiple) language acquisition and learning (L3, L4, Lx);
- psycho- and neurolinguistics of multilingualism;
- translanguaging;
- early bilingualism and heritage language development;
- speech processing in bi-/multilinguals;
- trans/multilingual language use in different contexts;
- multilingual education;
- intercultural and multilingual communication;
- bi-/multilingual language policies;
- linguistic landscape;
- literacy in multiple languages (pluriliteracy);

Proposals:
The three categories of proposals are: (1) individual papers, (2) thematic sessions and (3) posters.

Individual papers: Papers are formal presentations on original research by one or more authors, lasting a total of 30 minutes (20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion). Please note that the time limit will be strictly adhered to.

Posters: Poster sessions are for displaying research that offers the opportunity for individualised, informal discussion of the research. Posters are especially effective for presenting work-in-progress, fieldwork and results of empirical research if data can be presented visually (e.g. charts, graphs, tables). A block of time will be designated when presenters are available to discuss their posters. Posters should be in the size of DIN A1 or A0 in portrait format. There will be a time slot dedicated to poster presentations.

Thematic sessions: Thematic sessions allow for extended, interactive discussion on a specific topic (suggested by speakers), focusing on a cluster of independent papers. Each submission should include three presentations and a discussant, occupying the time of three “slots”. Submissions must include an abstract for the panel (of a maximum of 500 words in length), as well as for each of the constituent papers (of a maximum of 250 words in length).

The language of the conference is English.

Submission of proposals:
Submission is already open and will close on 1 October 2021. Presenters are requested to include their name, affiliation and email address in the submitted MS-Word documents (PDF attachments will be rejected). Proposals should not be more than 250 words in length. All proposals should be sent to: mlpp.krakowgmail.com

Evaluation of proposals:
Proposals will be evaluated in terms of quality of content, significance, originality, thematic relevance, and presentation.

IMPORTANT: Conference Presentation Policies

Each participant may submit a maximum of one proposal as first author, whether a paper or a poster. The same individual can still become a co-author of another proposal. However, s/he will NOT be allowed to present two papers. In addition, ONLY ONE certificate will be awarded for a presentation where s/he is the main author. Please, note that the maximum of three authors are permitted per proposal.

It is assumed that all proposals represent original and unpublished work that is not yet available to the research community. The presenter must be a registered attending participant at the conference. The conference policy is that the author will present their paper on the day and time assigned by the conference organising committee.
