News: Instructions for extended abstracts and/or short papers

The deadline for sending in an extended abstract or short paper is  31/07/19. This document has to be sent to dnc3aled@gmail.com .

Make sure to mention ‘DNC3ALED PAPER’ in topic field. You do not need to upload your text via the conference website as we initially suggested. A written version of your text is useful so non-native speakers can follow your presentation more easily.

The document you send in work will be circulated in a digital format among conference participants. These texts will not be made public to a larger audience.

When preparing your extended abstract or short paper, please observe the following instructions:


  • Obligatory file format: .doc or .docx

  • Mention the following information:

    • (co-) author name(s)

    • (co-) author email addresse(s);

    • title of the text has to be the same as the abstract

    • no indentations or other editing

  • Font: Times New Roman 12

  • Length: we advise authors to hand in text between three and ten pages long (single spacing)  (excluding bibliography and author information)

  • Language: please submit your text in the same language as your presentation or in English

Three formats for DNC3-ALED contributions

  1. Individual paper presentations (20 minutes presentation plus 10 minutes discussion).
  2. Panel sessions (usually 60 - 90 minutes on one theme). We also welcome suggestions for roundtables, workshops or more unconventional panel presentations. Please specify the form in your abstract.
  3. An ad-hoc “unconference” will be organized on one afternoon. The sessions are not planned in advance. Instead, all participants will have the opportunity to put sessions on the agenda during the congress itself. Participants may suggest topics, methods, theories, questions, problems, etc. No preparation necessary. For more information about the unconference format, see: http://unconference.net/unconferencing-how-to-prepare-to-attend-an-unconference

Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be submitted through the conference registration tool (see below) by September 30th 2018. Click here for submitting your abstracts. Please do mention all information concerning your presentation (especially if there is a specific panel you want to be in, the languages you are familiar with, any remarks concerning payment etc.) in the 'comment' field of the registration so that we can plan the panels. You can update your registration at a later point in time with your login details and accepted contributors will need to upload their preliminary paper by the 31st of July 2019. Your registration for DNC3-ALED will not be complete until you have received a confirmation email upon payment of the registration fee. Accepted participants will have to pay the conference fee by 15th of May 2019 at the latest.  

  • In your submission, please indicate (i) your preferred format (presentation/panel session) and (ii) your preferred language(s) for the presentation in the comment field.  
  • Abstracts for presentations and panels can be submitted in English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian or any other language. 
  • For any language to be represented at the congress, we need a minimum of ten accepted presentations in that language. If less than ten presentations in any one language are accepted, these papers may be presented in English or French.
  • For the ad hoc “unconference” no abstracts need to be submitted: simply register as a participant and turn up at the session with an idea, question, topic, method, concept, project, etc. Contributors will need to respond to the needs of speakers of other languages. 

We invite all presenters to embrace the complexity and vibrancy of a multilingual conference. That’s why we ask all participants to provide their paper or an extended version of their abstract (3 pages minimum) through the conference registration tool by 31 July 2019. 

If you want to make a panel proposal  for DNC3-ALED, we suggest you get in touch with your friends and colleagues as soon as possible. Panel proposals should comprise at least three participants. All panel participants will need to submit their abstracts on the webpage individually before the registration deadline (30/09/2018) including a note of the panel name and panel leader(s) in the comments fields. The panel leaders will then send an email to dnc3aled@gmail.com with the following information: proposed panel title, name(s) of panel leader(s) including contact email, list of people who have submitted paper proposals with paper titles, choice of language. Proposals for presentations can be made in any language and for a language to be accepted as a conference language we will need at least ten accepted proposals. All panels will be allocated to a language stream. A panel will normally be held in one language and no more than two. All abstracts will be reviewed individually and the panel will be formed from accepted contributions. Every panelist will have to make special efforts to address non-native speakers (including multi-lingual powerpoint presentations, speaking slowly etc.).
