> * Full papers
>
> Consisting of a 20-minute talk followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Submissions should present either complete research, or research in progress where at least some substantial results have been achieved. Work in progress which has yet to produce results can instead be submitted as a poster abstract. We are requesting extended abstracts (750-1500 words, excluding the word count for references), as we do not plan to produce a volume of conference proceedings. The extended abstracts will be published electronically shortly in advance of the conference.
>
>
>
> * Posters
>
> Posters can present either results of completed research or work in progress. Abstracts should be 250-500 words, excluding the word count for references. We especially welcome poster abstracts that (a) report on innovative research that is in its earliest phases, or (b) report on new software or corpus data resources.
>
>
>
> * Panels
>
> Panels during the main conferences offer an opportunity to group related papers together to allow extended discussions. Abstracts of 1500 words (excluding the word count for references) are to be submitted on behalf of all speakers, with an introduction specifying the relationship between the topics before details on individual presentations (including names and affiliations of all speakers) are given. Abstracts are to be submitted by the panel convenor(s). Panels will be allocated 1 hour 40 minutes.

> For the pre-conference workshop you can propose either a half-day or a full-day event. Proposals should be 1000 words for a half-day or 1500 words for the full-day, excluding word count for references. They should also provide details on whether the workshop will need a computer lab or any other technical requirements. Pre-conference proposals should be sent directly to the conference email account: CL2019 at cardiff.ac.uk<mailto:CL2019 at cardiff.ac.uk>, with a subject line that begins: [cl2019-pcw].
