A wide range of approaches are now currently followed in vocabulary studies. The aim of this conference is to bring together vocabulary researchers from a variety of backgrounds who are interested in the study of vocabulary from different perspectives. The conference will be an excellent opportunity to foster fruitful discussions about the present and future of vocabulary studies.
We invite abstracts for paper and poster presentations on any topic related to the teaching, learning, processing, and assessment of vocabulary (e.g. corpus linguistic approaches to the study of vocabulary; classroom-based research on the learning and teaching of vocabulary; formulaic language; psycholinguistic studies on the processing of vocabulary; vocabulary assessment, etc.). We particularly welcome abstracts based on empirical data.
We welcome proposals for: a) Paper presentations (20 minutes + 10 minutes for questions); b) and poster proposals. A title and a 300-word abstract should be submitted to email@example.com by the 15th of April 2016. Please specify if your submission is for a poster or paper presentation and do not add tables or diagrams in the abstract submission.
