Meeting Description:

The Society for Text & Discourse is an international society of researchers who investigate all aspects of discourse processing and text analysis. The purpose of the Society is to consolidate research in discourse processing and to enhance communication among researchers in different disciplines. A second objective of the society is to contribute to the education and professional development of those in the field or entering the field.

Call for Papers:

We invite students and scholars from various disciplines (e.g., psychology, linguistics, computer-mediated communication, neuroscience, learning sciences, language sciences, and others) to attend and participate in the 2013 Annual Meeting. We invite proposals for individual papers and posters presenting original research in any area of text and discourse processing, representation, and analysis. Authors should select from among the following topic areas that are typically represented at the conference, or use the ‘Other’ category to provide their own topic description.

- Basic reading and text comprehension processes
- Comprehension and literacy assessment and training
- Comprehension of single and multiple documents
- Dialogue with humans and artificial systems 
- Linguistic and psychological aspects of discourse
- Multimedia processing
- New methods for discourse analysis
- Processing in online/internet contexts  

This list is not limitative and proposals on other topics are much welcome.

The deadline for submitting proposals for the 2013 Annual Meeting is January 31, 2013.

More information on proposal submission can be found at the following link:


Themed Session Proposals:

If you have suggestions for Themed Sessions please send them following the same procedure as regular proposals. Themed session proposals should include: a) Title, b) name and affiliation of organizers, c) chair and discussant, d) general overview, e) the list of presentations (3 to 4 participants). Please note that each of the presentations should follow the section and length recommendations for regular proposals. For more information please contact the scientific committee chair (Eduardo.Vidal-Abarca at uv.es)

The International Scientific Committee will review the proposals and make decisions regarding acceptance, format, and arrangement into sessions. Authors will be notified of decisions by the end of March 2013.

Student Paper Awards:

The Society recognizes excellence in research with two annual awards based on papers submitted to the Annual Meeting by students. The Outstanding Student Paper Award (OSPA) recognizes quality in pre-dissertation work that is predominantly that of a graduate student. The Jason Albrecht Outstanding Young Scientist Award (JAOYSA) recognizes an outstanding paper based on a doctoral dissertation. For both awards, the student must be the first author on the proposal.

Proposals eligible for the Jason Albrecht Outstanding Young Scientist Award and the Outstanding Student Paper Award will undergo two independent reviews: one by the regular Program Review Committee and a second by the Awards Committee. Only proposals that are accepted for presentation as spoken papers on the program will be considered for the awards. Finalists may be asked for additional information regarding the submission for the final award review process.

Papers with student first authors will be considered for student paper awards only if indicated at the beginning of the abstract. In addition, the student’s advisor must send an email to stdconference2013 at gmail.com certifying that the work is based on the nominee’s doctoral dissertation for the JAOYSA award, or that the work is primarily that of the graduate student for the OSPA Award.  The subject line for the email should be either ‘JAOYSA Certification’ or ‘OSPA Certification’.
