Presentation formats

20-minute keynote presentations

These will be carefully selected by organizers from the submitted proposals. Keynote presentations open the conference at the plenary session. Slide show (PowerPoint or similar presentation) is encouraged. 10 minutes are given for questions and answers after each keynote presentation.

10-minute panel presentations

Most proposals fit into this standard category. Slide show (PowerPoint or similar presentation) is encouraged. 5 minutes are given for questions and answers after each panel presentation.


You are free to propose a workshop. Workshops are more practice-oriented and involve presenting a research methodology or research results in an interactive way with the involvement of all attendees. Workshops can last 40 minutes or 1.2 hours. This must be specified in advance.

Round-table discussions

These are more theoretical than workshops and also involve all attendees. This format is a great way to organize a mini-lecture with subsequent discussion. The length is 1.2 hours but proposals for 3-hour round-tables (with 20-minute break) are also accepted.


Abstracts and summaries of all conference materials will be published in the online proceedings by the beginning of the conference. The proceedings will not be indexed. The authors of selected papers will be invited to publish their articles in the international online journal “Language. Text. Society” (peer-reviewed, ISSN).
