Call for submissions

Call for panel proposal submissions

We invite proposals for panels on cohesive topics within clinical linguistics or phonetics. Panel proposals should consist of a brief outline (300 to 500 words) of the theme and purpose of the panel, with a list of the people organising and speaking in the panel.

Panels are normally collections of 3-5 individual paper presentations that relate to a narrowly defined topic of interest. Organisers are asked to consider formats which involve audience participation and discussion (perhaps with a designated discussant). Panel organisers are asked to avoid restricting their panel authors to the same research group; preference will be given to panels with a clear diversity of gender, seniority, and affiliation of participants.

Accepted panels will run for 90 minutes each. The organiser of a panel is responsible for securing the cooperation of all the participants who are to be involved in the panel and for deciding on the internal structure of the panel.

Panel abstract submission deadline: 30th January 2020


Call for paper and poster submissions

We invite proposals for oral or poster presentations on topics within clinical linguistics and phonetics. Oral and poster proposals should consist of background, method, results and conclusions (300 words).

ICPLA considers poster and oral presentations to be of equal importance and authors may indicate which mode of presentation they prefer. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to change the author's option. 

Oral presentations will be 15 minutes with 5 minutes for questions and speaker change-over.

Poster presentations should be A0 landscape.

Oral and poster abstract submission deadline: 20th February 2020
