We invite proposals on subjects including but not limited to: metaphor theory, metonymy, cognitive models, cognitive stylistics, figurative language use in L1 and in additional languages including foreign languages and multilingual acquisition, theory of figurative language acquisition and development, vocabulary and figurative language in foreign languages, applications of figurative language (to lexicography, translation, language teaching and methodology, etc.).

General Session:

Abstracts for 20-minute presentations (plus ten-minute discussion) should be no more than 500 words (plus references, tables and figures), and should also include 4 or 5 keywords. Candidates may submit: (i) a single-authored abstract; (ii) a single-authored abstract and a co-authored one (not as first author) or (iii) two co-authored abstracts (only one as first author). 

Abstracts should be sent by March 15, 2013 through the online system EasyAbs: http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/cral2013.

Round Tables:

Round Tables last a maximum of 90 minutes. The proposal should include not more than 5 presentations of ten minutes each. Round Tables should have a discussant that will act as debate moderator; debate time should take at least 40 minutes. Round Table proposals should have a general description of the aims of the session, and one abstract for each of the presentations. All abstracts should comply with the same specifications as the abstracts for the General Session.

Abstracts should be sent by March 15, 2013 through the online system EasyAbs: http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/cral2013.

Prize for the Best Oral Presentation:

There will be a prize for the best oral presentation by a PhD student and a prize for the best oral presentation by a postdoc. PhD students are students that have not completed their PhD before the conference. Postdocs have completed their PhD not earlier than January 2010. A nominated paper may be co-authored; in such a case, the nominee will be the first author.

Applicants are invited to include ‘Prize for the Best Communication’ under the paper title in the abstract and select the option ‘Oral Presentation + Prize’ when submitting their proposals via EasyAbs. On the basis of the ranking of the abstracts, the Advisory Committee will set up an internal shortlist with nominees for the prizes.
