Meeting Description:

The aim of this conference is to provide scholars, researchers, postgraduate and undergraduate students with current research issues from all fields of linguistics & TESOL an open and widely accessible forum.

The conference is free due to generous sponsorship from the University of Sydney.

The main feature that distinguishes this conference is its focus on freedom:

Freedom from linguistic subfield divisions
Freedom from an established and rigid theme for presentations
Freedom from fees 

Call for Papers:

Authors are invited to submit abstracts for papers, colloquia, poster presentations, or hot topics.

Colloquia (abstract max of 250 words): Colloquia will be 90 minutes in length. Their internal structure is up to their organizers, but sufficient time for discussion is encouraged.

Single papers (abstract max of 250 words): Papers will be 40 minutes in length, with 30 minutes for presentation, 10 minutes for questions/discussion.

Hot topics (abstract max of 250 words): Hot topic talks will be 20 minutes in length, with 10 minutes for the talk and 10 minutes for Q&A/discussion. We especially welcome proposals in this category from young researchers/students with new and challenging ideas.

Poster presentations (abstract max of 250 words): Poster presentations will be given in groups with a 30-minute allotment per session. This format may suit young researchers who want to present their work in a less formal format.
