Abstract preparation

The two categories of proposals are: oral presentations and posters

Both posters and oral presentations must refer to unpublished original research by one or more authors. However, posters are especially effective for presenting work-in-progress, fieldwork and empirical data via charts, graphs and tables.

Submissions should be related to either the conference main theme (Linguistics and Artificial Intelligence: Opportunities and Risks) or any of AESLA's 10 scientific panels: 

  1. Language Acquisition and Language Learning
  2. Language Teaching and Curriculum Design 
  3. Language for Specific Purposes  
  4. Language Psychology, Child Language and Psycholinguistics  
  5. Sociolinguistics  
  6. Pragmatics 
  7. Discourse Analysis  
  8. Corpus Linguistics, Computational Linguistics and Linguistic Engineering  
  9. Lexicology and Lexicography  
  10. Translation and Interpreting

Authors may submit a maximum of 2 proposals, either both proposals with co-authors or 1 as a single author and the other with co-authors.

Abstracts must be:

  • Anonymised
  • Submitted in English or in Spanish* 
  • No longer than 500 words (excluding references) 
  • Submitted via the conference website

*Note that the language chosen will be strictly maintained both for the presentation to be delivered at the conference and for the submission of the article for publication in the Book of Abstracts.
