Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce the 13th International Cognitive Linguistics Conference (ICLC-13), which is being held 20-25 July 2015 in Northumbria University, Newcastle, England. ICLC is the biennial conference of the International Cognitive Linguistics Association (ICLA, www.cognitivelinguistics.org). 

Confirmed Plenary Speakers:

- Adele Goldberg (Princeton University)
- Martin Haspelmath (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology)
- Mirjam Fried (Charles University in Prague)
- Hans-Jörg Schmid (Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich)
- Ronald Langacker (University of California, San Diego)
- Gabriella Vigliocco (University College London)

The special theme of this edition of the International Cognitive Linguistics Conference is 'bringing together theory and method'. This reflects one of the main outcomes of ICLC-12, Alberta: that the future of cognitive linguistics lies in the successful union of a robust empirical approach with sound theory.    

Information about the conference can be found at www.northumbria.ac.uk/iclc13, which will be updated as more details become available.

Dr Mimi Huang

2nd Call for Papers:

We invite a broad range of papers taking a cognitive, functional, typological, and discourse approach to the study of language and cognition. The special theme of ICLC13 (20-25 July 2015, Northumbria University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK) is ''bringing together theory and method''. We welcome papers that demonstrate, or reflect upon, the successful union of modern empirical methods with sound theory. 

A (non-exhaustive) list of potential topics is provided on the conference homepage: http://www.northumbria.ac.uk/iclc13. Go to: Call for Papers > Potential Topics.

General Session and Poster Session:

The language of the conference is English. General (parallel) session talks will be allocated 25 minutes, which includes questions and discussion. Posters will stay up for a day and will be allocated to dedicated, timetabled sessions. 

Theme Session:

Theme sessions will be integrated into the conference schedule. We encourage theme session organisers to submit theme session titles and proposals (up to 500 words) directly to the conference organisers (by email: ICLC13 at northumbria.ac.uk) along with the names of authors and titles of the individual papers. 

We will consider sessions of varying lengths and formats (with or without an allocated ''discussion'' slot). However, we would like to note that the conference schedule particularly suits sessions comprised of 6 slots (of 25 minutes each). The maximum length for theme sessions is 12 slots (of 25 minutes each). Theme session authors will still need to submit their abstracts for review (following the guidelines below) and should make sure to note the title of the theme session at the top of their abstracts.

The deadline for organisers to submit proposals for Theme Sessions is September 15, 2014. 

Abstract Submission:

Each author may submit maximally one single-authored and one co-authored paper, regardless of whether they are intended for the general or a special theme session. Abstracts must be submitted electronically through EasyAbs: 


The submission period is 1 August - 3 November 2014.

Abstracts must not exceed 1 page of A4 (including title, data, figures and references), and should be formatted in the following way. Please use 10 point Arial (Unicode) font, single-spaced and set margins to 1 inch (2.54cm) all around. Abstracts will be subjected to blind review by a minimum of two referees from an international Scientific Committee, so author names should not appear anywhere on abstracts (you may cite yourself as [Author] or in the third person for previously published work). Please include a list of five keywords that describe the research at the top of the abstract to assist the reviewing process.

Authors must include the following information on the EasyAbs web page: (1) name(s) of author(s); (2) affiliation(s); (3) email address; and (4) preference for oral or poster presentation. Authors should upload .pdf versions of their abstracts to preserve special formatting or fonts. 

Important Dates:

Abstract submission becomes available on EasyAbs: 1 August 2014
Deadline for theme session proposals: 15 September 2014
Deadline for abstract submission: 3 November 2014
Notification of acceptance: 15 January 2015
Dates of conference: 20-25 July 2015
