    Call for papers: EUROSLA12, European Second Language Association

    18 - 21.Sept. 2002
    Basel, Switzerland

    The conference is co-organized by the University of Basel and the Swiss
    Association of Applied Linguistics (VALS/ASLA).


    PAPERS are invited on every aspect of empirical and theoretical second
    language acquisition research:

    INDIVIDUAL PAPERS : individual papers will be allotted 20 minutes of
    presentation plus 10 minutes for discussion. Submissions should include, in
    the following order, the title of the paper, name and affiliation of the
    author(s), an abstract of 300 words, followed by the author¹s postal and
    email addresses.

    PANELS : panels covering one or two 90 minutes time-slots and focussing on a
    specific topic can be proposed by a panel organizer. A panel can consist of
    closely related papers or be organized as a round table or a data session.
    Submissions should include, in the following order, the title of the panel,
    a 600 word abstract (which clearly points out the thematic coherence of the
    panel), the number of time-slots covered (1 or 2), the participants¹ names
    and affiliations plus the organizer¹s name, affiliation and postal and email

    DOCTORAL WORKSHOPS : doctoral workshops focus on problems of methodology
    with regard to either data analysis (interpretation of natural conversation,
    statistical data, interviews, etc.) or research design (experimental design,
    corpus design, issues of data collection, etc.). Each presentation lasts 20
    minutes and will be followed by a 10 minute reaction by a senior researcher
    and 10 minutes of discussion. Submissions should follow the same formal
    conventions as individual papers (see above). State briefly the aim and the
    theoretical framework of your work and then raise the methodological
    problems you submit for discussion. If your presentation is accepted, you
    will be asked to send a more extensive summary to the discussant of your

    EUROSLA12 will be a trilingual conference (English, German and French);
    presentations in one of these languages are particularly encouraged, though

    Call for papers: LFG2002

    3-5 July 2002
    National Technical University of Athens, Greece.

    Abstract submission receipt deadline: 15 February 2002
    Submissions should be sent to the LFG Program Committee
                          (see addresses below)

    LFG-2002 welcomes work both within the formal architecture of
    Lexical-Functional Grammar and typological, formal, and computational
    work within the 'spirit of LFG', as a lexicalist approach to language
    employing a parallel, constraint-based framework. The conference aims
    to promote interaction and collaboration among researchers interested in
    nonderivational approaches to grammar, where grammar is seen as the
    interaction of (perhaps violable) constraints from multiple levels,
    category information, grammatical relations, and semantic information.
    Further information about the syntactic theory LFG can be obtained from:



    The conference will primarily involve 30-minute talks, poster/system
    presentations and workshops. Talks and poster presentations will focus
    on results from completed as well as ongoing research, with an emphasis
    on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives, whether
    descriptive, theoretical, formal or computational. Presentations should
    describe original, unpublished work.


    This year we're going to encourage an active poster session. All
    presenters will be invited to display posters and to have a chance to
    chat in more detail with participants about their work. In addition we
    will accept papers for poster presentation only. Poster presenters will
    be asked not to use their laptops in their presentations.


    Workshops are a small group of talks (2-4) on a coherent topic that
    can be expected to generate opposing views and discussion with the
    broader audience. Participants to workshops are usually
    invited. Workshop papers should be distributed in advance among
    participants and participants should refer to each others approaches.

    At this point in time, we welcome suggestions for workshops from
    potential organisers or people with certain interests. Suggestions for
    workshops should be sent to the local organizers at:


    This year we are hoping to hold a special session consisting of
    presentations from students who have (or will have by the time of the
    conference) recently completed PhD dissertations involving some
    aspect of LFG. Such students (and/or their supervisors) are invited
    to contact the program committee chairs for further information
    (see the addresses below).


    Deadline for receipt of talk submissions: 15 February 2002
    Late deadline for poster-only submissions: 15 March 2002
    Acceptances sent out: 31 March 2002

    Deadline for workshop submissions: 15 January 2002
    Workshop acceptances: 15 February 2002

    Conference: 3-5 July 2002


    Abstracts for talks must be received by February 15, 2002, while
    poster-only abstracts will be accepted until March 15, 2002. All
    abstracts should be sent to the program committee chairs at the addresses
    given below. For workshops, further site information or offers of
    organisational help, contact the local organisers at the addresses below.

    Submissions should be in the form of abstracts only. In contrast to
    previous years, we are not acccepting the submission of full papers.
    Abstracts should be one A4 page in 10pt or larger type and
    include a title. Omit name and affiliation, and obvious self
    reference. A second page may be used for data, c-/f- and related
    structures, and references.

    Submissions should indicate whether they wish to be considered only as a
    talk, as either a talk or a poster, or only as a poster/demonstration.
    In the absence of specification, submissions will be considered for both
    classes, and the program chairs may decide that certain submissions are
    better as poster presentations than as read papers.

    Abstracts may be submitted by email or by regular mail (or by
    both means as a safety measure). Email submission is preferred.

    Regular Mail:
    - Eight copies of the abstract/paper.
    - A card or cover sheet with the paper title, name(s) of the
    author(s), affiliation, address, phone/fax number, e-mail address, and
    whether the author(s) are students.

    Include the paper title, name(s) of the author(s), address, phone/fax
    number, email address, and whether the author(s) are students in the
    body of your email message. Include or preferably attach your paper as
    either a plain ASCII text, PDF, HTML, or postscript file. Postscript
    files require special care to avoid problems: make sure your system is
    set to include all fonts (or at least all but the standard 13); if using a
    recent version of Word, make sure you click the printer Properties
    button and then the Postscript tab, and there choose Optimize for
    Portability; on all platforms make sure the system is not asking for a
    particular paper size or other device-specific configuration. It is
    your responsibility to send us a file that us and our reviewers can
    print. You can often test this by trying to look at the file in a
    screen previewer such as Ghostview.

    All abstracts will be reviewed by at least three people.
    Papers will appear in the proceedings, which will be published online
    by CSLI Publications. Selected papers may also appear in a printed
    volume published by CSLI Publications.

    September 6-8, 2002

    The conference is a follow-up on the First International Conference on
    Construction Grammar held in Berkeley in April 2001. In line with the
    aim of the first conference, we hope that ICCG2 will continue to serve
    as a forum for promoting discussion and collaboration among linguists
    interested in Construction Grammar and Frame Semantics, as well as in
    related constructional research in its various models and applications.

    Plenary speakers include:
    Hans Boas
    William Croft
    Charles J. Fillmore
    Mirjam Fried
    Adele E. Goldberg
    Paul Kay
    Michael Tomasello

    Regular conference papers (20-min. talk plus 10-min. discussion) are
    invited on any aspect of linguistic analysis that is concerned with
    constructions and/or frames. We welcome work on issues in syntax,
    morphology, semantics, pragmatics, discourse, language acquisition,
    corpus linguistics, language variation/change, etc.

    Abstracts of 500 words, with an additional page for graphs, data, and/or
    references if necessary, should be submitted by March 1st, 2002. If you
    are submitting by regular mail, please provide 5 copies of your
    anonymous abstract with the title of the paper at the top, and the
    following information on a separate sheet of paper: author's name and
    affiliation, title of paper, mailing address, and e-mail address. All
