International Conference on Linguistics (ICL): Linguistic for Humanity

Last updated: Desember 15, 2022

Call for Papers

It has been decades since linguistics began to transcend beyond the study of structure. Linguistics has departed from the confines of phonetics and phonology (the study of linguistic sounds), morphology (the study of word formation), syntax (the study of the structure of phrases, clauses, and sentences), and semantics (the study of meanings). Countless studies have been undertaken involving linguistics and other related disciplines. 

Different aspects of human language are also studied under the headings of law and criminology (forensic linguistics), psychology (psycholinguistics and cognitive linguistics), communication sciences (pragmatics and semiotics), social sciences (critical discourse analysis), computer sciences (computational linguistics), and cultural studies (ethnolinguistics and linguistic variations). Through such interdisciplinarity, linguistics offers perspectives and solutions to the diverse and complex issues and problems of humanity.

How do interdisciplinary studies involving linguistics address problems of humanity? The Faculty of Cultural Sciences of Universitas Padjadjaran invites students, scholars, and experts to share knowledge about and discuss issues of humanity in the International Conference on Linguistics (ICL): Linguistics for Humanity.

We invite contributions for a 10-minute paper presentation addressing the conference topic. Please send a 150-word abstract for individual papers, accompanied by a short biographical note on all speakers (100-150 words) and 5-6 keywords to no later than 20th November 2022.

Presenters may deliver their papers online or provide the organizing committee with a ten-minute pre-recorded video of their presentations no later than 6 December 2022. Presenters who choose to deliver their presentation in a pre-recorded video should also be present online for the subsequent Q&A session. All presenters are required to deliver their presentations in English.

All speakers and participants will be provided with an e-certificate. Participants who wish to have their articles published in the conference proceeding should submit their full papers no later than 27 December 2022. Only selected papers will be included in the conference e-proceeding (fee applicable)
