Submission of proposals

The submission of proposals is now open and closes on February 28, 2017. Please, submit your proposal by filling out an online form:

Proposals regarding original and previously unpublished research on minority languages are invited. All proposals should fall broadly within the conference theme revaluing minority languages.

Types of presentations: 1) paper, 2) poster, 3) colloquium, and 4) workshop (with hands-on activities based on some data or a specific topic).

Length of abstracts: paper, poster or workshop (500 words, max., including references).

Proposals for colloquia

Colloquia are collections of paper presentations that relate to a narrowly defined topic of interest, and are offered in a three-hour time block. Proposals for colloquia are limited to 700 words, and should include brief summaries of each of the papers to be included, along with paper titles and individual authors’ names. Sufficient detail should be provided to allow peer reviewers to judge the scientific merit of the proposal. The person submitting a proposal for a colloquium is responsible for securing the permission and co-operation of all participants before the proposal is submitted. A chair for the session must also be identified.

Language policy

The language of the conference is English. If a presentation is based on data in any other language, use of multilingual material (e.g. in Power Point slides, handouts) is recommended.

International sign language interpretation will be facilitated at the ICML XVI, to help us evaluate the need and volume, please include a note at your submission if you need interpretation.

Reviewing of abstracts

The proposals for any type of presentation will be evaluated anonymously by at least two members of the Organizing Committee, and they will be evaluated for their contribution to the field, quality of content, thematic relevance, quality of abstract (organization, clarity of expression).

Presentation acceptances will be sent out by April 10, 2017.
