language teachers interested in the basic principles and key ideas of 
cognitive linguistics. The post-conference workshop, which will take 
place on Saturday, September 29^th 2018, after the main conference, is 
going to be a Red Hen workshop (http//redhenlab.org), which presents the 
Red Hen tools and infrastructure for research into cognitive 
linguistics. Details will be available on the conference website in due 
time.

*Call for Theme Sessions:*

We invite submissions for theme sessions concentrating on specific 
topics in cognitive and usage-based linguistics (see further details on 
topics in Call for Papers below). Theme sessions are expected to conform 
to the 30-minute rhythm of the general sessions and may contain six OR 
nine 30-minutes talks (please indicate your choice in your proposal). At 
least half of the slots (i.e., a minimum of three slots if a session of 
six is suggested and a minimum of five slots if a session of nine is 
aimed at) already need to be filled with potential contributors when the 
proposal is submitted.Please submit your theme session abstract by 
*Wednesday, January 31, 2018* via the conference webpage. Conf-Tool will 
be available as from the second week of January 2018.

Please note that the abstract for your theme session should not contain 
your name(s) or affiliation(s) and be no longer than 500 words (plus 
references). The abstracts of the individual talks should follow below 
and should also neither mention names nor affiliations. The abstracts of 
the individual talks should not exceed 200 words each.

Proposals for theme sessions will be anonymously reviewed as a whole. 
Review criteria are coherence, cross-references among the individual 
contributions, relevance of topics, originality of research, clarity of 
structure and language as well as strength of argumentation.

The notification of acceptance for the theme sessions is scheduled for 
mid-February 2018, i.e., a few days before the regular call for papers 
closes, which gives you the chance to inform your contributors 
concerning the possibility to resubmit their individual papers for the 
general sessions in case the theme session proposal in question was not 
successful.

*Call for Papers:*

We are inviting abstracts dealing with topics from cognitive and 
usage-based linguistics. We especially encourage the submission of 
papers engaging with the main topic of the conference, Applied Cognitive 
Linguistics, i.e., exploring the potential of cognitive linguistic 
findings for language teaching and learning. Furthermore, we welcome 
contributions dealing with different aspects of cognitive linguistics, 
ideally taking a cognitive perspective on language on the basis of 
methods employed in corpus linguistics, psychology, psycholinguistics, 
neurolinguistics, artificial intelligence and other fields in cognitive 
science. Explorations of the links between these disciplines and 
cognitive linguistics are also very welcome.

Conference languages are English and German.

There are two types of presentation:

- 20-minute oral presentations (plus 10 minutes for discussion)

- poster presentations (gallery walk)

Please submit your abstract by *Tuesday, February 20, 2018* via the 
conference webpage.Conf-Tool will be available as from the second week 
of January 2018.

Please note that your abstract should not contain your name(s) and 
affiliation(s) and should be no longer than 500 words (plus references). 
All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously on the basis of the following 
criteria: relevance of topic, originality of research, clarity of 
structure and language as well as strength of argumentation.

The notification of acceptance for papers and posters is scheduled for 
March 15, 2018.
