Call for Papers

Second Call for Papers for EuroSLA 33, 2024

We are inviting proposals for presentations at EuroSLA 33 to be held in Montpellier, France, from 3 to 6 July 2024.    

We welcome submissions in all areas and approaches to the study of second, foreign, or additional languages, bilingualism and multilingualism. 

Academic Program 

The academic program will include presentations by four invited keynote speakers: 

•  Stéphanie Roussel (Université de Bordeaux) 

•  Joan C. Mora (University of Barcelona) 

•  Nicole Tracy-Ventura (University of West Virginia)

•  Xavier Aparicio (INSPE, Université de Paris-Est-Créteil)

Doctoral Workshop and Roundtable

The conference will also offer a doctoral student workshop and a Roundtable. 

Types of Presentations 

1) Individual papers 

Length of presentation: 20 minutes followed by 5 minutes for Q&A. 

2) Posters:  A0. Note that only portrait orientation is possible. 

3) Papers at the doctoral student workshop 

Length of presentation: 15 minutes of talk by the doctoral student, followed by 10 minutes for discussion.  

The doctoral student workshop aims at fostering discussions of ongoing PhD research, as well as at obtaining feedback from senior researchers and other doctoral students. These workshops provide an opportunity for PhD students to present and discuss their work and explore future directions (25 minutes). Doctoral students whose abstracts are accepted are required to send their abstract, presentation, and a limited number of specific questions to the senior discussant ahead of the conference. The discussant will lead a 10-minute feedback/discussion session of the PhD work.  


Abstract Submission Information 

The submission of presentation proposals closes on 10 December 2023. We particularly encourage the submission of poster proposals given that the number of paper slots are limited. We believe that poster sessions are an excellent opportunity to discuss research with other delegates on a more informal basis.

The proposals for all presentations will be evaluated anonymously by at least three members of the EuroSLA 33 Scientific Committee. Evaluation criteria include: 

•  quality of the content 

•  clarity of the abstract 

•  contribution to the field.

Please note that you will have to create a Sciencesconf account to be able to submit your abstract. 

Notification of acceptance will be communicated by end of February 2024. 

Length of Abstracts 

Individual papers, papers at the doctoral student workshop, or posters: max. 500 words. 

Language Policy 

The working language of the conference is English, but presentations are also welcome in other European languages. 

Presenter Policy 

Each participant can appear as the first author (and presenter) of one presentation only, regardless of whether this is a paper in the doctoral workshop or the conference proper. 


Student Stipends 

As in previous years, several student stipends will be available for students currently enrolled in either a Master's or a Doctoral program. If you wish  to  apply,  please  send  the  following  information  to  eurosla33@sciencesconf.org before 10 December 2023: 

•  Name, institution, and address of institution

•  Official confirmation of student status

•  Statement from supervisor or Head of department that the applicant's institution cannot (fully) cover the conference-related expenses. 

Please note that applicants who have already received such a stipend in the past are not eligible to re-apply. 


Junior Researcher LAB award

The journal Linguistic Approaches to Bilingualism will be awarding the Junior Researcher LAB Award for the most promising PhD project selected for presentation at the doctoral workshop. The recipient of the Junior Researcher LAB award receives 300 Euros. Details about the award and application procedure available here: Junior Lab Award 2024.
