Paper Selection, Speakers, Program, Poster

Paper Selection

The workshop includes two  separate sessions, oral presentations and posters.  To encourage participation of young scholars, we reserve the oral session to those who are currently graduate students or who have received Ph.D. degree within two years, each for a  one-hour talk.  All submissions, by default, will be allocated to the poster  session.  A selection committee will be formed to review the submitted abstracts and allocate works to the oral session which are considered by the reviewers to be of high interests to the development of theoretical East Asian linguistics and linguistic theory in general.  Authors who are allocated to the oral session are automatically candidates of the fellowships provided by Tsing Hua Linguistics.

Note: The Fellowship will be awarded to speakers at the oral session only.  The recipients must be graduate students or scholars who have received the Ph.D. degree within two years.  The papers that the recipients of the fellowships present must be single-authored.

We will provide a board to each presenter of the poster session, which is approximately 8 ft. wide x 4 ft. high.  The board is one side of a movable white blackboard.  Two presenters will share the two sides of a white blackboard.  We will also provide tapes, magnets, and other necessary stationary to the presenters of the poster session.  Each board will be marked with the ID number of the work to be presented.  In case you cannot find your board, our attendants will help to find it.

The numbers and sessions of posters will be announced after we receive all the confirmation message from the participants.  More information, in particular the ID numbers of the works, will be announced then.

We do not set any restriction on the format and content for the poster.  But some general considerations may be of some concern, such as the size of the font and the organization of the content (the points to be made, the data that support the points, the analysis that substantiates the points, and the conclusion).  Since the presenters may not be at the poster site all the time, we suggest that the poster be "self-evident", in the sense that it is intelligible to browsers without much explication from the presenter personally.  A good sample would be a typical kind of lecture handout with enlarged font size (proportional to the change from A4 to B4, say).

If you plan to demonstrate material other than printed matter (such as video or audio content), please contact us first.
