We invite proposals for panels on cohesive topics within clinical linguistics or phonetics. Panel proposals should consist of a brief outline (300 to 500 words) of the theme and purpose of the panel, with a list of the people organizing and speaking in the panel.

Panels are normally collections of 3-5 individual paper presentations that relate to a narrowly defined topic of interest. Organizers are asked to consider formats which involve audience participation and discussion (perhaps with a designated discussant). Panel organizers are asked to avoid restricting their panel authors to the same research group; preference will be given to panels with a clear diversity of gender, seniority, and affiliation of participants.

The organizer of a panel is responsible for securing the cooperation of all the participants who are to be involved in the panel and for deciding on the internal structure of the panel.

If you’re thinking of a panel proposal, please contact Thomas Kaltenbacher by November 15th 2022, Panel abstract submission deadline is 20th February 2023.
