Call For Papers

Interfaces in Linguistics

6th Jétou (Journées d’étude Toulousaines)
Young Researchers Conference
Université Toulouse Jean Jaurès – campus Le Mirail
Toulouse, France (May 18th & 19th 2017)

The JéTou (Journées d’étude toulousaines) is an international symposium aiming at gathering Master and doctoral students and young researchers (who have defended their dissertation within the past three years) together, from the different disciplines of Linguistics, on an open and multidisciplinary theme. This 6th edition is organized by doctoral students from three laboratories in Toulouse University, France:

* CLLE-ERSS (Équipe de Recherche en Syntaxe et Sémantique)
* LERASS–CPST (Laboratoire d'Études et de Recherches Appliquées en Sciences Sociales – Communication, Pratiques, Sens, Textualités)
* Octogone-Lordat (Centre Interdisciplinaire des Sciences du Langage et de la Cognition)

This 6th edition of the Jétou will be devoted to a reflection on the following theme: Interfaces in Linguistics.

Linguistics is becoming an increasingly interdisciplinary field of study. This is not surprising, given the nature of language itself: different levels of linguistic structure are in constant interaction, and language also interfaces with numerous other fields of human activity. The goal of the JéTou 2017 conference is to bring together young researchers working on different scientific fields in and around linguistics. We therefore welcome all submissions that integrate two or more scientific subfields that address relevant linguistic issues. These works can explore the interfaces between different levels of theoretical linguistic description (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, discourse), the interaction of theoretical linguistics with other language–related fields (language acquisition, language learning, language teaching, translation studies, semiology, etc.), or the interfaces between language studies in general and other scientific fields such as psychology, neuroscience, sociology, anthropology, computer science, etc.

The list of possible domains includes, but is not limited to:

* Phonetics
* Phonology
* Morphology
* Syntax
* Semantics
* Semiotics
* Sociolinguistics
* Pragmatics
* Discourse
* Lexicology
* Lexicography
* Terminology
* Language acquisition
* Language learning
* Language teaching
* Translation studies
* Literature
* Cognition
* Psycholinguistics
* Neurolinguistics
* Speech disorders
* Natural Language Processing
* Computational linguistics
* Corpus linguistics
* Information Technologies

The main focus of the conference will be on the works at the interface of: 1) Linguistics and computer science, 2) Linguistics, psychology and neuroscience and 3) Linguistics, language acquisition, language learning and language teaching; but any work that is interdisciplinary in nature will be given full consideration. Proposals combining theoretical considerations with work on linguistic data are particularly welcome.

The JéTou 2017 conference calls for full paper submissions. Articles must be 6–8 pages, including up to two pages for references, according to the LaTeX, Word or OpenOffice templates. The first submission must be anonymized. Articles shall be PDF files submitted on Easychair :

Depending on the subject, a paper may be accepted for an oral presentation or a poster presentation. However, all accepted papers will be published in the same format in the conference proceedings. Additionally, we will be awarding prizes to the best oral presentation and the best poster.

In sum, the JéTou 2017 conference proposes a relevant present–day topic with the goal of opening new perspectives for interdisciplinary research and collaboration. The conference will be a nice occasion to ask questions, discuss issues and exchange ideas between peers.
