Meeting Description:

The 16th International TELLSI Conference on Futurology of English Language
Teaching and Literature (a joint project of Teaching English Language and
Literature Society of Iran and Shiraz University) is due to be held November
14-16, 2018 at the Department of Foreign Languages and Linguistics, Shiraz
University. You are more than welcome to submit a proposal for presentation.

are available on the conference website : http://tellsiconf.com/en/

Futurology, in its broad sense, advances the following question: what does the
future hold in store for us? It is a way of avoiding not being taken aback by
the future (unwanted) trends and directions in any field of human endeavor.
Taken narrowly, it signifies any academic endeavor aimed, one way or the
other, at describing, prognosticating, and even modeling of the future based
on an interpretation of current life. It is also a prediction of possible
alternative futures based on a thorough and systematic view of how events are
unfolding at current times. 
Futurology is additionally a practical undertaking in that it seeks to shed
light on the best possible courses of action human beings can take to help
achieve sustainable development. This requires futurology to be proactive
rather than reactive. That is, instead of waiting for future events to occur,
humans can make a conscious and concerted effort at imagining the future and
seeking to shape it. Insofar as the field of Applied Linguistics is concerned,
futurology is intended to delve into the ways scholars, practitioners, and
policy-makers can join hands along the way by creating a synergic interaction
between current theory, practice, and policy.

Guidelines for Abstract Submission:

All abstracts, regardless of their presentation method, are subject to the
same rules for submission and presentation: 
You may submit as many abstracts as you like. There is no fee for abstract
submissions. However, you cannot have more than two presentations. You can be
the first author of only one paper and the second or third author of one more
abstract (two in total). Abstracts should not exceed 500 words. Abstracts
should be no longer than one A4 page in  portrait  layout. The  title  of  the
 abstract  should  be  as  concise  as  possible  and  should appear in bold
and centered. The corresponding author for each abstract submitted must be  
clearly   identified   and   marked   with   an   asterisk   (*) at   the  
time   of abstract submission. Abstracts  should  be  sent  as  an  MS  Word

Along  these  lines,  authors  are strongly encouraged to put their abstracts
in the template. Note that abstracts should be prepared in the Template by
default. You may enter up to three authors in the authors list including  the 
corresponding  author. Abstracts  for  empirical  studies  should  include the
purpose  of the  study,  appropriate  description  of  the  method,  results, 
conclusions,  and 
implications. Conceptual research abstracts should critically discuss an
approach or issue, or  compare  and  contrast  different  approaches  or 
issues,  and  provide  significant  new insights.

All  abstracts  must  be  submitted  (and  will  be  presented)  in  English 
using  accurate grammar and spelling suitable for publication. Limit use of
acronyms and abbreviations. Define at first use with acronym or abbreviation
in parentheses

Paper Submission Rules:

To submit an abstract, please include your full address and contact details by
clicking on ''New Paper''. Select one topic from the list of topics which best
describes the content. Please make sure you have 
entered the full list of authors and that the information given for each
author is correct. The authors' order and details will be published as entered
by the submitter. Once  submitted,  it  is  not  possible  to  make  any 
corrections  to  the  abstract  content  or information (such as authors list
and details, topic, conclusion(s), etc.). The TELLSI is not  authorized  to 
make  changes  to  a  submission.  In  order  to  correct  your  abstract  you
must  withdraw  it  and  submit  a  new  corrected  version  prior  to  the 
deadline. No  late submission will be accepted. Abstracts sent by email will
not be accepted. After   having  submitted   your   abstract,   you  will 
receive   an  immediate automatic confirmation by the system(i.e., code).
Failure to comply with the above requirements will/may lead to automatic
rejection of the submission or this information may be deleted by the abstract
services and some rephrasing may occur.
