MLA '16 - Press Release
Toronto, 13-18 May 2016 #mlanet16
Call for SubmissionsCall for Submissions (includes both English and French).
The 2016 MLA/CHLA/ABSC/ICLC Joint Planning Committee invites submissions for papers, posters, lightning talks, and special content sessions that support the theme, “Mosaic: Be Part of the Big Picture.”
Plan to submit your structured abstract for your research project or program description in September 2015, using the guidelines at research.mlanet.org. New to this year’s process, authors will rank how they would prefer to present their content: paper, poster, or lightning talk. Abstracts not accepted to a first choice will be considered for second and third choices.
New this year are special content sessions. Groups—such as sections, chapters, special interest groups (SIGs), or other groups—are invited to design engaging 1.5-hour-long sessions (for example, invited speakers or panel presentations). Proposals for special content sessions are due in September 2015, and these submissions should not duplicate content submitted as paper sessions, poster sessions, or lightning talks. MLA’s Research Section will award prizes for the best research-based papers and posters. Full information on the submission process, programming types, instructions for proposals for special content sessions, and criteria used to assess abstracts and proposals will be available on MLANET in May 2015.
