Call Deadline: 29-Oct-2010

Meeting Description:

Special Theme: Pragmatics and its interfaces

The conference is open to all other pragmatics-related topics as well
(where pragmatics is conceived broadly as a cognitive, social, and cultural
perspective on language and communication).

Plenary Speakers:
Laurel Brinton, University of British Columbia
Nick Enfield, Max-Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, Nijmegen
Hans Kamp, University of Stuttgart
Sotaro Kita, University of Birmingham
Rosina Marquez Reiter, University of Surrey
Wes Sharrock, University of Manchester

Call for Papers

There are two deadlines for panel proposals: 15 June 2010 and 1 September
2010. Proposals received by 15 June 2010 will already be evaluated before
the end of June.

Deadline for all panel contributions, lectures, posters, is 29 October 2010

Submission is completely web-based and requires IPrA membership.

Individual proposals for panel contributions, lectures and posters should
take the form of a brief abstract (equivalent to max. one average A4 or
Standard-size page, single spacing, Times pt 12; i.e. ca 500 words); mind
the 29 October 2008 deadline.

It is the individual submitter's choice to submit for oral presentation (as
a panel contribution or lecture) or a poster. Panels are structured as the
panel organizer sees fit. For oral lecture presentations, 30-minute slots
will be available (including discussion time). Posters will be up for the
whole week; during one of the conference days, there will be a free hour
that can be used only for looking at and discussing posters. IPrA actively
encourages the submission of posters; experience tells us that they often
lead to more serious interaction and result in more lasting and fruitful
contacts than oral presentations.

Because of heavy competition for slots in the program, no-one can be
considered for more than one contribution of which he or she is the first
author (whether panel contributions, lectures or posters). Anyone may be
involved in a second or even a third paper if someone else is the first
author and will be present at the conference as well. In the case of
multiple authorship, the web-based submission system recognizes as first
author only the one who handles the submission process. While there is a
restriction on the number of contributions of which one may be the first
author (one only!), presenting a paper is always compatible with taking the
role of organizer of a panel or acting as a discussant in a panel.
