Subject: Deadline Extension & Final Call: Language Technology at KFLC 2013
This is the *Final Call* for submission of abstracts to the Language Technology sessions at KFLC: The Language, Literature, and Culture Conference 2013.
There is still time to join our international group and be a part of the 8th annual LangTech sessions.
With the problems caused by hurricane Sandy in the eastern sections of the United States, the deadline for submission of abstracts has been extended through:
*** Sunday, 18 November 2012 ***
For your reference, I have included below my original message with a brief description of the conference and the full Call for Papers.
Many thanks to those who have already responded and who have shared this information with their colleagues and constituents.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.
I look forward to hearing from you and your colleagues and to adding your work to the growing list of exciting proposals that have already come in.
With best regards,
----- original message and Call for Abstracts -----
I would like to invite you to submit an abstract for participation in the 8th annual Language Technology sessions at KFLC: The Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Conference.
The KFLC is an international, multidisciplinary academic conference with a 66-year history of bringing together top researchers in language, literature, culture, and linguistics in the fields of Arabic, East Asian, French and Francophone, German-Austrian-Swiss, Hispanic, Luso-Afro-Brazilian, and Neo-Latin Studies, as well as Language Technology, Translation and Cultural Studies, and Second Language Acquisition. The KFLC offers broad exposure for your work, gathering over 750 scholars in these disciplines from around the world.
The Language Technology division ("LangTech at the KFLC") was inaugurated at KFLC 2006. In bringing a technology track to a high-level international academic conference with a strong literary-cultural tradition and orientation, we provide a forum for both academics and technologists to engage in a discussion of technological innovation in the teaching and research of world literatures and cultures (in addition to the more customary discussions of technology in language instruction). Indeed, "LangTech at the KFLC" seeks to encourage cross-pollination of ideas across languages and literary-cultural interests, encouraging participants from all KFLC literature, culture, and linguistics divisions to join in discussions on integrating technology into their teaching and research programs.
I have included below the official Call for Papers for this year's LangTech at the KFLC 2013. I hope that you will consider bringing your work in Language Technology to Lexington to showcase for us, and that you will share this call broadly with your colleagues.
I look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you here in the spring.
----- CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - LANGTECH AT THE KFLC - 18-20 April 2013 -----
LangTech at the KFLC is 8 years old this year!
At the intersection between technology and literary, cultural, language, and linguistic teaching and research, we welcome submissions on any aspect of:
*** Technology for Literature & Culture, Language & Linguistics ***
This includes, but is certainly not limited to:
- integrating technology into literature, culture, and linguistics curricula and classrooms.
- faculty research in literature, culture, and linguistics employing technology ("digital humanities").
- technology for student projects and research in literature, culture, and linguistics.
Abstracts are, of course, also welcome in all other areas and aspects of technology and language, such as:
- using tech tools and techniques for language instruction in all skills and on all levels.
- mentoring language educators in optimal use of technology in their teaching and research.
- employing technology-based research publication in language scholarship.
- managing language technology in an academic setting.
The KFLC is an international academic conference that brings together top researchers in language, literature, culture, and linguistics in the fields of Arabic, East Asian, French and Francophone, German-Austrian-Swiss, Hispanic, Luso-Afro-Brazilian, and Neo-Latin Studies, as well as Translation and Cultural Studies, and Second Language Acquisition. We would like to see this broad range represented in the Language Technology sessions, to encourage cross-pollination of ideas across the languages and disciplines and to encourage participants from the literature, culture, and linguistics sessions to join us in our discussions on integrating technology into teaching and research.
Abstracts should be no more than 250 words in length and should be submitted directly online at:
** http://kflc.as.uky.edu/ **
In view of the multi-language audience that we hope to attract to all Language Technology sessions, the recommended language of presentation is English. Presentation sessions are 30 minutes in length (including a 5-10 minute question and answer period).
** Deadline for submission of abstracts is 15 November 2012. **
All proposed abstracts will be considered for inclusion in the KFLC program. Acceptance of a paper implies a commitment on the part of the participant(s) to register and attend the conference. All presenters must pay the appropriate registration fee by 15 February 2013 to be included in the program. The conference will take place 18-20 April 2013 on the campus of the University of Kentucky in Lexington.
