*Abstract submission policy *

Each author may submit no more than one single-authored and one co-authored
(i.e. not first-authored) abstract to be considered for oral presentations,
including colloquia and doctoral workshops. More than one abstract can be
submitted for poster presentations. Paper and poster proposals should not
have been previously published. All submissions will be reviewed
anonymously by the scientific committee and evaluated in terms of rigour,
clarity and significance of the contribution, as well as its relevance to
second language research. Abstracts should not exceed 450 words (excluding
the title, but including optional references).

*Individual papers and posters*

Papers will be allocated 20 minutes for presentation plus 5 minutes for
Poster sessions will be held in two 90-minute slots. In order to foster
interaction, all other sessions will be suspended during the poster

*Thematic colloquia*

The Thematic colloquia will be organised in two-hour slots running in
parallel with other sessions. Each colloquium will focus on one specific
topic, and will bring together key contributions to the topic. Colloquium
convenors should allocate time for opening and closing remarks, individual
papers, discussants (if included) and general discussion.

*Doctoral student workshop*

The doctoral student workshop is intended to serve as a platform for
discussion of ongoing PhD research within any aspect of second language
research. PhD students are invited to submit an abstract for a 10-15-minute
presentation. The abstract and the presentation should include one or two
questions on which the student would like to receive audience feedback
(e.g. data collection, analysis, theoretical or methodological issues), and
sufficient background information for framing the questions. These sessions
are not intended as opportunities to present research results, but to
discuss future directions. Students whose abstracts are accepted will then
be required to send their paper to a discussant (a senior researcher). The
discussant will lead a 10-15-minute feedback/discussion session on their
