  • You will find below all necessary information regarding the submission of proposals for VocUM’s next edition. Please use the form that follows to submit your proposal.

    Important dates

    Launch of the call for papers: May 4, 2020
    Deadline for proposal submission: July 3, 2020
    Notification of acceptance: September 2020
    Conference: November 19 and 20, 2020

    Accepted languages

    Submissions in French and English are welcomed. That being said, VocUM encourages the use of French in order to resist the current trend toward English hegemony in the dissemination of scientific knowledge. Similarly, contributors working in the fields of Spanish and German studies can present their research in Spanish or German, respectively.

    Presentation format

    Presentations should be between 15 and 20 minutes long (to be determined according to the final number of presentations), followed by a question and answer session. This summer, the organizing committee will be hard at work, selecting the exact format (choice of platform, synchronicity, etc.) that will allow us to preserve the quality and energy of past editions. Please use the following form to let us know your preferences and suggestions. We will contact you as soon as the final format is chosen and we will, of course, assist you in its implementation.

    Who can participate?

    This call for papers is addressed to all graduate students and research professionals whose work relates to language. All affiliations are welcomed. We will also consider submissions from undergraduate students.

    Peer review

    Anonymous peer evaluation of the proposals will be carried out by a scientific committee.

    Questions?
