ST&D 2017: 27th Annual Meeting of the Society for Text & Discourse
Philadelphia, PA, USA, July 31-August 2, 2017
|Submission deadline||March 1, 2017|
The Society for Text & Discourse is an international society of researchers who investigate all aspects of text and discourse including processing and analysis. The purpose of the Society is to foster and promote excellence in research, to enhance communication among researchers in different disciplines, and to contribute to the education and professional development of those in the field or entering the field.
The submission page for the 27th Annual Meeting of the Society for Text & Discourse is now open. We invite students and scholars from various disciplines (e.g., psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, learning sciences, and others) to attend and participate. We invite proposals for individual papers and posters presenting original research on text and discourse processing, representation, and analysis. Click here to submit your proposal.
If you have suggestions for Symposia or Themed Sessions, please send them (title, short description, list of potential contributors) to the Program Chairs (John Sabatini and Tenaha O’Reilly) by January 16, 2017. Agreed upon symposium proposals will then have to be submitted following the same guidelines as regular proposals.
The following information must be entered into the EasyChair submission form:
- Author information (Name, Affiliation, Country, Email Address for all authors; Indicate corresponding author and conference presenter)
- To streamline program creation, please ensure the same preferred name for publications and professional email address is used for authors and coauthors across submissions.
- For example: Johnathon A. Smith, smith123@R1university.edu
- PLEASE DO NOT USE: Jon Smith, email@example.com
- Titles should be properly capitalized, for example: An Analysis of Text Processing and Products
- PLEASE DO NOT USE: An analysis of text processing and products
- A 75-word abstract.
- At least three relevant keywords.
- Appropriate topic areas for reviewing (see List of Topics below).
- Award Eligibility (First author student status)
- Submission preference (Spoken Only, Poster Only, Spoken or Poster)
- Please note, that due to venue limitations, the organizers are only able to accept a limited number of spoken presentations.
- A 1200-word summary file (including references) must be uploaded as a PDF.
- The summary file should have a title but no author information. It should contain basic sections including a short theoretical introduction/framework, methodological overview (including quantitative or qualitative approach), key findings, and a brief discussion. The summary will be submitted as a .pdf file and should be saved using a generic name (e.g. summary.pdf) Proposals that exceed the length specified will not be reviewed.
The Society recognizes excellence in research with two annual awards based on papers submitted to the Annual Meeting. Recipients of each award receive a certificate and a $150 award check.
The Outstanding Student Paper Award: The Outstanding Student Paper Award (OSPA) recognizes quality in work that is predominantly that of a graduate student. Accordingly, the student must be first author on the paper. The student's major advisor will be asked to confirm that this work has been done primarily by the student.
The Jason Albrecht Outstanding Young Scientist Award: The Jason Albrecht Outstanding Young Scientist Award (JAOYSA) honors the memory of Jason Albrecht, a promising young text and discourse researcher who passed away in 1996. The award recognizes an outstanding paper based on a doctoral dissertation. The doctoral candidate or recent doctorate must be first author on the paper. The student's dissertation advisor must send an email certifying that the work is based on the nominee's doctoral dissertation, and recommending the candidate for the award. Proposals eligible for the Jason Albrecht Outstanding Young Scientist Award and the Outstanding Student Paper Award will undergo two reviews: one by the regular Program Review Committee and a second by the Awards Committee. Only proposals that are accepted for presentation as spoken papers on the program will be considered for the awards. Finalists may be asked for additional information regarding the submission for the final award review process.
