Special Sessions


The organisers of ABRALIN50 invite proposals for special sessions covering emerging topics, challenges, interdisciplinary research, or subjects that could foster useful debate in linguistics. The theme of ABRALIN50 is “Linguistics in Contemporaneity: debates, challenges and proposals”. Thus, special sessions proposals related to the theme will be especially welcome. Proposals that are related to the different theoretical areas represented by ABRALIN will also be accepted, though. It is important to note that the purpose of the special sessions is to promote advanced discussions on the proposed topics; for this reason, the participation of experienced researchers in these sessions is encouraged.

Special sessions will be 3 hours long. It is anticipated that these will consist of 10 papers, each 15 minutes long, plus 30 minutes total at the end of the session for discussion; however, organisers can also propose a different format within this time slot. Proponents of special sessions should organize and coordinate them.

Each proposed special session should contain the following information:

  1. The title of the proposed special session;
  2. The name(s) and affiliations of the proposer(s), including contact information and a brief biography of each organizer. The coordination of the symposium should be composed of at most two specialists affiliated to different national or international institutions.
  3. A summary (up to 800 words) of the session topic that describes its importance, details the objective of the special session, and sets out the session’s format. The summary should clearly explain why the topic is better covered in a special session rather than a regular conference session.
