YLMP2012 Congress: Call for Papers
We are happy to announce that the Young Linguists’ Meeting in Poznań (YLMP2012) will take place
on 25–27 May 2012 in Poznań, Poland. The Meeting will be organised by the School of English,
Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań.

The leitmotif of the YLMP2012 Congress will be Language in context(s). Proposals of papers related to this main theme, as well as to other fields of modern linguistics, are invited.

The suggested research areas for block sessions are as follows:

>cognitive linguistics
>historical linguistics
>language and meaning
>language and gesture
>language and technology
>language teaching methodology
>translation studies
>language and gender
>language and sexuality

We are also planning to organise a formal session. However, final decisions regarding the session will depend on the number of prospective participants willing to take part in it.

Each paper will be given 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for discussion. There will also be poster sessions.
The language of the congress is English.

Apart from block sessions, there will also be plenary lectures, delivered by our keynote speakers.
