Meeting Description:

Queen's University Belfast is pleased to announce its 1st
Interdisciplinary Linguistics Conference (ILinC), a student-led
venture to take place on 14-15 October 2011 (Friday and Saturday).
This two-day conference is designed to offer participants a
stimulating and friendly forum in which they may present and discuss
their research findings. Additionally, the event aims at bringing
together researchers from different academic divisions carrying out
language studies in order to foster cross-disciplinary contact.

This year's conference theme is ‘Crossing Boundaries: The Impact of
Language Studies in Academia and Beyond’. We therefore seek to look
into the role played by language studies both within the academic
scenario and outside it, paying special attention to the relevance of
current language research findings to society in general.

The following distinguished scholars have confirmed their
participation at the conference:

- Prof. Deborah Cameron (University of Oxford)
- Prof. Michael Halliday (University of Sydney)
- Prof. Ruqaiya Hasan (Macquarie University)

Call for Papers:

Due to numerous requests, the deadline for submitting proposals has
been extended until July 24th. We invite researchers (both students
and staff members) working in the broad area of language studies to
submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations based on the
(non-exhaustive) list of areas below:

- Applied linguistics
- Classroom discourse
- Corpus linguistics
- Critical discourse analysis
- Discourse analysis
- Genre analysis
- Language change
- Language policy
- Language teaching/learning
- Linguistic and cultural imperialism
- Multimodality
- Phonetics/phonology
- Pragmatics
- Semantics
- Sociolinguistics
- Syntax
- Stylistics

Given that there will be few parallel sessions in the 1st ILinC, we
especially encourage the submission of poster proposals at this stage.

Submission Guidelines:

Proposals should be submitted via EasyAbs available at
http://go.qub.ac.uk/ilinc2011, following the guidelines below:

1. Abstracts should be 300 words long (maximum) and should clearly
indicate the research question/objective, literature review,
methodology, results and conclusions (without any subheadings).
2. The DOC file to be submitted via the online facility should be
formatted as such:
a. The first line should specify the title, which must be centralized,
in bold, and in capital letters.
b. After skipping a line, the abstract should be typed, containing a
maximum of 300 words. Citations should be included as deemed
necessary, but there is no need to include full references at the end
of the abstract.
c. Please do not use any foot/endnotes and avoid unusual symbols (such
as phonetic transcriptions) which may be changed in electronic
