Guidelines for Submissions

What to Submit?

We welcome submissions of:

  • Empirical, conceptual/theoretical nature,
  • Findings from dissertations/PhD theses at different stages,
  • Research findings that you may have generated for your dissertation (whether completed or in progress),
  • Critical work such as small project findings which you may have produced for the assessment of one of your modules. However, make sure that the work you wish to present shows an empirical contribution on your part.

Submissions must be within our core Conference tracks:

  1. Discourse Analysis
  2. Language Teaching and Learning
  3. Intercultural Communication

This year's special theme is "Transcending Dialogues". We aim to provide a dialogic space for all participants and invite you to discuss the ways to transcend dialogues in various disciplines.

  • Postgraduate students who are still studying or have recently graduated (in 2021 or 2022).
  • Undergraduate students.

You may apply to present either individually or as a group.

Make sure that your abstract includes:

  • An introduction has a clear background and rationale,
  • Well defined, reachable research objectives which are related to the topic of the abstract, and address the research purpose,

  • Results/expected results which are well presented, understandable for the audience, and are related to the methodology and rationale of the study,

All abstracts will be double-blind reviewed and are subject to final approval by the conference committee.
