3rd Experimental Pragmatics in Italy Conference (XPRAG.it 2019)
September 19-20, 2019
University of Cagliari - Department of Education, Psychology, Philosophy
website: http://xpragit2019.it

We invite submissions of abstracts in any area of experimental pragmatics, including neuropragmatics, developmental pragmatics, and clinical pragmatics.

Three types of submission are accepted:

- oral presentation
- poster presentation
- pre-registration poster

Pre-registration poster is a novel type of submission, offering the opportunity to present plans for studies yet to be undertaken, rather than work that has been already completed.

The aim of pre-registration posters is to promote the integrity and the reproducibility of experimental research in pragmatics, in the spirit of Open Science (see Tibon et al. 2018 Title TBA: Revising the Abstract Submission Process, Trends Cogn. Sci. 22: 4, 271-274). Pre-registration posters will also offer the opportunity to receive feedback on early stages of the research, when it is most needed.

For similar initiatives, see BNA 2019 (http://meetings.bna.org.uk/bna2019/registration-abstracts/preregistration/) and CLShelf19 (https://sites.google.com/a/sheffield.ac.uk/clshef2019/call-for-papers?authuser=0)

Submitters might also choose to candidate for the XPRAG.it young researcher award, consisting in a monetary prize, granted by the Organizing Committee to the best presentation (of any type) from a PhD or early post-doc (no more than 2 years from PhD).

The abstracts must not exceed 1000 words for the text, 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. Abstracts must be written in English and should include a clear title but no information revealing the author(s). 

Abstracts for pre-registration posters must respect the same word limits and should include the following sections:

- Introduction (background, reasons for carrying out the study, hypotheses…);
- Methods (how the hypothesis will be tested);
- Approach for statistical analysis (what statistical tests will be used).

Accepted pre-registration posters should include the sections above, plus any data collected since submitting the abstract, and any initial statistical analysis or conclusions.

The number of submissions is limited to maximally one as first (or sole) author (plus joint submissions where the author is not first author).
Abstract submission deadline: March 31, 2019, by midnight Central European Time (23:59 CET).

We expect to make notifications of acceptance by the end of May, 2019.
Abstracts can be submitted through EasyChair at the following link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=xpragit2019

The XPRAG.it 2019 Conference is organized at the University of Cagliari under the auspices of XPRAG.it (https://www.xpragit.com/), a research network founded in 2017, with the aim of providing an Italian venue for discussing – at the international level – empirical research on pragmatic processing. 

Invited Speakers:
Raymond Gibbs (University of California, Santa Cruz), Title TBA
Courtenay Norbury (University College London), Connections between pragmatics and structural language skills in typical and atypical development

Martin Pickering (University of Edinburgh), Understanding dialogue: Language use and social interaction
Deirdre Wilson (University College London), Understanding Metonymy

No fees are required, thanks to funding available to the Local Organizing Committee (granted by the Department of Education, Psychology, Philosophy of the University of Cagliari and Fondazione Banco di Sardegna, research project “Science and its Logics: The Representation’s Dilemma”, n° F72F16003220002). We hope that this would encourage a larger participation, in the spirit of inclusive science.
