Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition 

Call Deadline: 13-Feb-2017 

Meeting Description:

This biannual conference brings together researchers from across Europe and
overseas with the aim of communicating results from their research. It also
provides a forum for discussion of recent, high-quality research on first and
second language acquisition, bi/multilingual acquisition, heritage language
acquisition, language pathology and language impairment, the acquisition of
sign language and brain imaging research for acquisition and pathology.
Language acquisition studies are central to building our understanding of
human language and how it develops in the brain. The field has witnessed a
continuous growth during the past three decades.

Call for Papers:

For the main session, we invite abstract submissions for 30-minute oral
presentations (20 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for discussion)
or posters (the maximum size for posters will be A0) of original, unpublished
work on all subfields of generative language acquisition: L1 acquisition, L2
acquisition, L3/Ln and bi/multilingual language, heritage language
acquisition, language pathology and language impairment, sign language, etc.

The language of the conference will be English.

Submission Guidelines:

Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts in any of the topics
listed above. Abstracts should not exceed one page in letter-size or A4 paper,
with one extra page for examples, tables, figures and references, with 1-inch
or 2.5 cm margins on all sides and 12 point font-size. The abstract should
have a clear title and should not reveal the name of the author(s).
Submissions are limited to one individual and one joint abstract per author,
or two joint abstracts per author.

When you submit your abstract on the GALA conference website
(http://www.uibcongres.org/GALA13/presentacion/index.en.html), you will be
asked to provide a short summary (150 words max.) of the abstract which will
be added to the book of abstracts. Upon submission, please indicate whether
your work should be considered for an oral presentation (either the Main
Session or one of the Workshops) or for a poster (or both). Submitting the
same abstract to both the Main Session and to one of the Workshops is not


All authors who present their work at the conference will be invited to submit
their paper for publication. As in previous editions, the outcome of GALA 13
will be a collective book published by a high standing international publisher
in the field. This year one of the novelties of the conference will consist in
the publication. Besides publishing the conference proceedings with Cambridge
Scholar Publishing as in past editions, a small selection of papers will be
included in an edited volume by Springer (Book Series “Studies in Theoretical
Psycholinguistics”). Papers for either publication will be selected on the
basis of their contribution to specific themes of particular interest arising
from the conference through a blind peer-review process.

Important Dates:

Deadline for abstract submission: February 13, 2017
Notification of acceptance: March 31, 2017
Registration opening: April 1, 2017
