Call for papers:
We invite abstract submissions for talk and poster presentations. Abstracts can describe original work, but can also be an opinion or a summary of previous work so long as these are relevant to the topic of the conference and are of high intellectual and scientific quality. Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words and should not contain any tables or figures.

Talks will be 15 minutes long (with 5 additional minutes for questions), while posters will be presented at one of the poster sessions on each day of the conference.

All abstract submissions can be submitted as plain text or optionally as PDF-format. When you submit your abstract, you will be asked to indicate whether you would like it to be considered for a talk, a poster or either; and whether it is relevant to the special session on methods & reproducibility.

Submissions should be made online via Easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eslp2018

The deadline for submissions is April 16th, 2018.

Topic areas:
Topics should fit the usual ESLP remit of work that deals with embodied and situated language processing across a range of disciplines (including cognitive science, psycholinguistics, cognitive linguistics, developmental psychology) and empirical methods (including behavioural, neuropsychological, and computational). As a focus in the 2018 conference, we particularly welcome submissions that address the fundamental issue of conceptual grounding and how meaning is learned and represented in the mind/brain. To ensure the future of the field, research findings must be as robust as possible. The 2018 conference will also feature a special session on methods and reproducibility in embodied cognition research and we welcome submissions that address issues in this area.

If you have any questions, contact us by writing an email to: eslp2018 at lancaster.ac.uk<mailto:eslp2018 at lancaster.ac.uk>
