Meeting Description:

We are pleased to announce that the 7th Biennial International Conference on
the Linguistics of Contemporary English (BICLCE) will be held on 28-30
September 2017 at the University of Vigo (Spain). We invite papers on every
aspect of the linguistics of contemporary English.

The attention devoted to the linguistics of the English language has resulted
in a broad body of work in diverse research traditions. The aim of the BICLCE
(formerly ICLCE) conference is to encourage the cross-fertilization of ideas
between different frameworks and research traditions addressing the
linguistics of contemporary English. Previous conferences were held in
Edinburgh (2005), Toulouse (2007), London (2009), Osnabrück (2011), Austin TX
(2013) and Madison WI (2015), along the same lines. We aim for the conference
in Vigo to build on the success of those events.

BICLCE2017 aims to provide a platform for work which deals with contemporary
varieties of English, in terms of their phonology, morphology, syntax,
semantics, pragmatics, etc., in any way which aims to be explanatory.
Traditionally in this conference, syntax (specifically constructions),
sociolinguistics, processing and discourse analysis are four of the focus
areas. We invite proposals on these and other areas, such as variationist work
which engages with issues of linguistic structure. We do not envisage work
which is purely historical, but work which brings in diachrony in order to
explain the structure of present-day English is certainly welcome.

Invited Speakers:

Teresa Fanego (University of Santiago de Compostela)
Martin Hilpert (University of Neuchâtel)
Padraic Monaghan (Lancaster University)
Jennifer Smith (University of Glasgow)
Anja Wanner (University of Wisconsin-Madison)


Call for Papers:

We invite abstract submissions for (a) 20-minute paper presentations, (b)
thematic workshops, and (c) poster presentations. The deadline is 31 January
2017.

Abstract submissions will be handled via EasyAbs at the following URL:
http://goo.gl/u5uqS8

Papers:

Abstracts for 20-minute presentations should be no longer than 350 words
(excluding references). They should be submitted to the EasyAbs site as a .pdf
file or in MS Word document format (.doc or .docx). Please use only common
phonetic fonts such as the SIL font family. The abstract document itself
should be anonymous, i.e. it must not contain the name of the author(s).

Thematic Workshops:

Colleagues interested in organising a thematic workshop are also welcome to
submit a proposal. This should start with a description of the overall panel
up to one page in length, followed by abstracts for all papers included. For
abstracts, please use the same file format as for paper submissions (see
above).

Posters:

Posters will be presented in a special session and remain on display during
the conference. Please use the same file format as that used for paper
submissions (see above).

Submission:

At the top of the abstract, preceding the title, please:

1) State whether you are submitting a proposal for a 20-minute presentation,
for one of the planned thematic workshops, or for a poster session.
2) List one or several subfield(s) of contemporary English linguistics that
your work pertains to. This information helps us to assign your abstract to
the right reviewers. You may choose from among the following list and/or name
additional subfields where appropriate: 

   - Cognitive linguistics
   - Computer-mediated communication
   - Corpus linguistics
   - Language acquisition
   - Lexicography and lexicology
   - Morphology and morpho-syntax
   - Phonetics and phonology
   - Pragmatics
   - Processing
   - Psycholinguistics
   - Semantics
   - Sociolinguistics
   - Syntax
   - Typology
   - Varieties of English
   - Variationist research.

You may submit more than one abstract but we will accept a maximum of two
abstracts from any one person for presentation (one joined, one
single-authored), as this allows more people to take part in the conference.

All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously.

Notification of acceptance will be sent out by 15 March 2017.

Further Details:

- There are plans for publishing a peer-reviewed selection of papers from the
conference, most likely in thematically coherent volumes which will be
submitted for the consideration of international publishers.
- The conference language will be English.
- Time for general sessions and workshop presentations: 20 minutes plus 10
minutes for questions/discussion.
- All conference rooms are equipped with a microphone, computer and projector.
At the foot of your abstract, please indicate whether you need other technical
equipment and we will do our best to provide it, although this cannot be
guaranteed.

- Any enquiries about the conference should be sent to biclce2017 at uvigo.es.
