A paper is a 20-minute session that describes an innovative idea, research, or a procedure through which the presenter has recently gained awareness of an aspect of language, language teaching, and/or learning. It should describe what has been done in relation to theory or practice or may focus on commercial materials or products. Its content should be relevant to the delegates who work outside the presenter’s local context as well. The presenter is requested to allocate time for questions and discussion.
The presenters are requested to present their papers with only occasional reference to their notes rather than by reading out previously prepared texts or overhead transparencies or slides.
The summary should be no more than 250 words and should explicitly outline the steps and topics that will be discussed in the paper. 5 minutes should be allocated for question and answer.
A demonstration/workshop is a 40-minute practical presentation that shows how to use or apply a technique(s) or activity/task(s). It is an experiential learning session where participants are actively involved. The summary should be no more than 250 words and should explicitly outline the steps and topics that will be discussed in the paper. 5 minutes should be allocated for question and answer.
A poster session gives a visual presentation illustrating or summarizing a project, research study, or a feature of language teaching and/or learning. Each poster will be allocated wall/board space and there will be a 60-minute slot in the program solely for the presentation and discussion of the posters by the presenters and delegates; however, the posters will be on exhibit for about 3 hours.
The poster presenters will be expected to be on hand during this slot. Their summary should be no more than 250 words and should explicitly outline and discuss the steps and procedures that they will present in their poster.
CRITERIA FOR PROPOSAL SELECTION
Proposals fulfilling the following criteria will be considered for selection:
It is clear from your summary that:
• You will shed new light on the topic.
• You have respected the level of knowledge of your audience.
• Your session will consider practical issues and implications.
• Your session will provide the audience with the opportunity to link this experience to their own if it describes a study or project in your local context.

Important Note for Proposals
While writing your summaries, please keep in mind that
a) each presenter can present a maximum of 2 papers and/or demonstrations.
b) the submitted proposals are sent to reviewers and the reviewers evaluate the proposals anonymously. That is, the blind screening committee members evaluate the summaries to accept or reject a proposal. Please make sure that your summary reflects your study. The clarity and flow, originality, significance, relation to the theme, and detailed description of the study all affect the members’ decisions.
c) if your proposal is accepted, your summary will be published in the conference website.
d) joint presenters must also register and pay the conference fee individually.
