Call for papers

Due to COVID-19, ExLing 2020 will go online. Further information will be provided about any prospects for an onsite conference in Athens, in case the pandemic definitely subsides in good time. Talks will be held through video conferences and selected ones will be uploaded on our ExLing YouTube channel.

ExLing 2020 is the 11th edition of the International Conference of Experimental Linguistics and takes place in Athens, Greece, 12-14 October 2020, under the auspices of the University of Athens.

ExLing is a unique international event aimed at bringing together professionals applying experimental and computational methods in their study of language and promoting the exchange of ideas on innovative approaches to the study of language.

All experimental disciplines and subjects with reference to the study of language are considered relevant to the conference, ranging from speech production and language comprehension to cognitive linguistics and discourse analysis as well as from applied linguistics and language education to computational linguistics and language pathology.

Keynote speakers will outline the state-of-the-art of main areas of linguistics and discuss with participants respective aspects of current research and methodological approaches:

Yosef Grodzinsky

Tony Mcenery
Corpus linguistics, triangulation and experimentation

William Snyder
Children's Syntax: A Parametric Approach

Wolfram Ziegler
Articulation planning from a neurophonetic perspective

The Conference programme will contain a series of keynote lectures in combination with plenary and parallel oral sessions as well as special sessions. The special sessions will take place in the afternoon, one on Language Education and one on Language Pathology.

The ultimate aims of ExLing conferences are the exchange of expertise and development of experimental methodologies in order to acquire linguistic knowledge and promote linguistic theory as well as facilitate international collaborations among ExLing participants. 

All papers of ExLing 2020 will be included in the 11th volume of the ExLing proceedings series and selected papers will also be considered for post-conference specialized publications. 

Researchers and research groups regarding experimental linguistics and related disciplines are welcome to submit abstracts at ExLing 2020 conference.
