Economics, Linguistic Justice and Language Policy, 2-3 March 2015, Berlin, Germany

The range of problems raised by diversity of languages in international economic and political integration processes calls upon innovative, efficient and fair language policies to manage multilingualism. Language policies are increasingly acknowledged as being a necessary component of many decisions taken in the areas of labour mobility, access to knowledge and higher education, social inclusion of migrants, and they can affect companies’ international competitiveness and the democratic control of international organisations.

Big Data: New opportunities and challenges in language acquisition research, 04-Mar-2015 - 04-Mar-2015, Leipzig, Germany

Language acquisition research on topics ranging from phonological processing to semantic knowledge has been built on meticulous examination of small data sets, such as case studies. While we have learned a lot from such careful work, some limitations quickly became evident. A new horizon has opened as bigger, open data sets began to emerge. Early examples are the CHILDES and the MCDI projects. Today, new technologies pave the way to some much needed cross-linguistic extensions, for instance, via automatic annotation of day-long audio(-video) recordings in seldom described languages. It also becomes possible to include other linguistic levels (e.g., receptive knowledge through open repositories of experimental results).

Word Knowledge and Word Usage: Representations and Processes in the Mental Lexicon

People are known to understand, memorise and parse words in a context-sensitive, opportunistic way, by caching their most habitual and productive processing patterns into routinized behavioural schemes, similarly to what we observe for sequences of coordinated motor acts.

Globalising Sociolinguistics. Challenging the Anglo-Western nature of Sociolinguistics and expanding theories

This conferences addresses mismatches between mainstream sociolinguistic models and non-Anglo-Western sociolinguistic settings. Papers are invited on sociolinguistic issues, from various areas in the world, which challenge or expand mainstream theories. Both theoretical and empirical contributions are welcome. Papers will explore sociolinguistic settings in various regions, focusing on difficulties in applying common theory in the region in question, or the need to expand theory. In so doing, the conference hopes to lay bare the nature and the mechanisms related to the named bias and arrive at a more comprehensive understanding of sociolinguistic issues around the world.

Cognitive Contact Linguistics, 20-25 July 2015, Northumbria, UK

For ICLC 13 (Northumbria, July 2015) we propose a theme session that aims to demonstrate the benefits and possibilities of Cognitive Contact Linguistics (CCL), a framework that imbeds core concepts and theoretical insights of Cognitive Linguistics and Cognitive Sociolinguistics in research on contact-induced variation and change.

Pragmatic Perspectives on Networked L2 Discourse, 26-31 July 2015, Antwerp, Belgium

The panel 'Pragmatic perspectives on networked L2 discourse' will examine and discuss the interplay between structural choice, function and context in the practice of interactional second/foreign language (L2) use in Web 2.0, the second-generation web. Web 2.0 has dramatically changed L2 practice. By connecting people, Web 2.0 facilitates multilingual encounters in virtual community spaces where people can interact with others in the language(s) of their choice.

The Digital Agora of Social Media. 26-Jul-2015 - 31-Jul-2015, Antwerp, Belgium

The present day participative Internet, Web 2.0, is often conceived as a space for the public exposure of one’s private life. This panel aims to adopt another perspective on Web 2.0. The focus is on how users contribute to public discussions, i.e., take part in the mediated public sphere. The internet and social media consist of spaces of digital agora where social actors cross and blur the boundaries between the public and private spheres, institutions, and everyday life.
