The conference “Argumentation and Language” encourages scientific exchanges between French and English speaking scholars. In this spirit, we want to offer you the possibility of presenting your paper in one language and to prepare supporting material (handouts or visual presentation) in the other language. If this is indeed an option you want to consider, please let us know by using the following key, which should immediately follow your title on the form: EN / FR (for a presentation in English and supporting material in French), or FR / EN (for a presentation in French and supporting material in English). For example: “Implicit premises and argumentative reconstruction: a pragmalinguistic proposal EN / FR”. We thank in advance those of you who will opt for this possibility in order to favour dialogue between scholars from different linguistic backgrounds.

Types of contributions

Individual presentation

Individual presentations will last 25 minutes, followed by a 5 minute question session. Contributors will need to tie their presentation with one or two of the conference themes, as described above. The deadline for submission is January 15, 2015.

Abstracts should not be more than 400 words; they must (i) clearly state the research question, (ii) include a brief description of the theoretical framework and of the methodology adopted by the author and (iii) highlight the originality of the proposal.

Panel

Panels are 2 hour long thematic sessions. They are divided in three 30 minute presentations and are followed by a 30 minute discussion time (to take place at the end of the panel or in its course). The panel convenors are responsible for the organisation of both the thematic coherence and the logistic articulation of the panel in order to ensure that it fits the general orientation of the conference.

Panel proposals will contain a general description and the abstracts of the three papers to be presented. Panel proposals can be submitted until December 1, 2014.

The general description of the panel and the abstracts should not exceed the 400 word limit each. As for individual presentations, these must (i) clearly state the research question, (ii) include a brief description of the theoretical framework and of the methodology adopted by the author and (iii) highlight the originality of the proposal.
