For obvious reasons, the 9th International Conference of the German Cognitive Linguistics Association cannot take place in autumn 2020 as planned and has therefore been postponed. The new dates are: 29th Sept to 2nd Oct 2021. The pre-conference workshop(s) will take place on the 28th of September.
If you have already submitted an abstract, it will remain in the conference system. The reviewing process has been taken up again and will be finished by the end of September. All participants whose abstracts for 2020 are accepted are invited to take part in the 2021 conference. However, new or revised abstracts will also be accepted in a new round of abstract submission. A new call for papers will be sent round towards the linguist list and the DGKL mailing list later this year.
The direct entry point to the conference management system is still to be found at https://express.converia.de/frontend/index.php?folder_id=3056&page_id=. From there you can always return to our conference homepage via “back to event website”.
The conference home page (to be updated for the details of the 2021 conference in the next few weeks) can be found at https://www.uni-erfurt.de/tagungen/DGKL-2020/.
The new conference days fall into the last weeks of BUGA 2021 Erfurt (Germany’s Federal Garden Show), a big event that will let us see the city in bloom (literally) and at its very best.
