Who will review the asbtracts that will be submitted to a symposium proposal?
The organizers of a symposium will be responsible for the reviewing by creating their own review committee (blind review).
Are abstracts in other languages than English welcome for AILA2021?
Language policy: English as the most widespread lingua franca in academia and research is the primary language of communication at the AILA 2021 World Congress; therefore, all announcements, proposals and so on will be in English. However, a symposium may be held in languages other than English. This should be clearly announced in the proposal. We also suggest that presenters provide slides/handouts in English to make their presentations as accessible as possible for all delegates.
Will the accepted papers be published?
Aila 2021 itself will not seek to publish proceedings, but symposia organizers are encouraged to seek their own publication venues and communicate those to their participants.
Does bibliographic information for references made within the proposal and is the bibliography is included in the word count.
The proposal needs bibliographic information for references made within the proposal and the bibliography is included in the word count.
Because references take up so many words, I would suggest keeping the number of references down.
