Call For Papers

[With apologies for cross-posting]

We are pleased to announce that submissions for the Workshop on Individual
Differences in Pragmatics and Discourse (IndiPRAG) are now open.

Submission deadline: 1st May 2023
Notification date: 5th June 2023
Workshop dates: 18th September (all day) and 19th September (morning) 2023
Workshop venue: Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany (the workshop is
collocated with XPRAG in Paris, 20th-23rd September)


Call for submissions:

Experimental research in pragmatics and discourse processing has
consistently found that not all comprehenders behave the same: while some
seem to draw rich pragmatic inferences, others respond in a way that is
more consistent with a literal interpretation (Fairchild & Papafragou,
2021; Mayn & Demberg, 2022). Similarly for discourse inference,
experiments have found differences with respect to the sensitivity to
discourse cues and the readiness for discourse predictions between
participants (Scholman, Demberg & Sanders, 2020; Tskhovrebova, Zufferey &
Gygax, 2022).

This workshop aims to bring together researchers interested in exploring
individual differences at the level of pragmatics and discourse, as well
as methods for relating those differences to cognitive properties, and
approaches for modelling the mechanism driving the individual differences

IndiPRAG Workshop invites submissions of abstracts addressing the
following questions:

- To what extent do pragmatic processing and discourse inferences differ
between individuals?
- How consistent are interpretation biases across different types of
pragmatic implicatures?
- What individual difference measures are particularly suitable for
measuring IDs related to pragmatic processing?
- How can we computationally model individual differences in discourse and
- What statistical methods are best suited to identifying latent groups of
participants and relating ID measures to task performance?


Formatting guidelines:

The abstracts must not exceed 1000 words for the text (excl. captions),
10000 characters for references, 2 figures. Abstracts should be submitted
in PDF format, with 2.54 cm margins on all sides and 12 point font size,
single-spaced. Please indicate up to three appropriate keywords for your
abstract, which will be used for session planning.

Abstracts must be written in English and should include a title but no
information revealing the author(s).

Submissions should be handed in via easychair:


We will have invited talks by:

Kirsten Abbot-Smith, University of Kent
Morton Christiansen, Cornell University
Craig Hedge, Aston University
Petra Hendriks, University of Groningen
Antje Meyer & Florian Hintz, MPI for Psycholinguistics Nijmegen


IndiPRAG is being organised by: Vera Demberg, Jia Loy, Alexandra Mayn,
Dongqi Pu, Margarita Ryzhova, Merel Scholman, Sebastian Schuster
