Registration circular

Registration for ICCG11 is now open. As communicated before, the conference will be in hybrid format, with the prospects for large on campus attendance looking good. The Belgian government announced this week that indoor events up to 400 people will be allowed again in August. It is too early to tell what the exact conditions will be like, but we will keep you up to date.

Three of our keynote speakers have already expressed their wish to come to Antwerp in person, and we will keep you up to data on the decision of the others. The roundtable discussion will also be on campus (with online participation). Lunch and coffee breaks are included in the on campus participation fee. And the city of Antwerp is as appealing as ever. Finally, if you are ultimately unable to come to our campus but still want to attend online, the difference in registration fees will be refunded.

For those of you who are unable to come, the break-even price for online attendance covers the cost of the online conference platform hopin.com for a more agreeable online experience, as well as multi-camera streaming of the plenary talks and main auditorium provided by a professional video production service.

We would also like to invite you to fill in the survey that is part of the roundtable discussion, should you not yet have done so. If you have not received a personal link to this survey, please contact Hans Boas (hcb@mail.utexas.edu).

Note that the registration page does not include registration for the pre-conference tutorials. Please contact the organizers directly. Information on how to register for Bringing Computational Construction Grammar into your Classes and Research may be found on https://ehai.ai.vub.ac.be/events/iccg-11/. Given the difficulty of organizing the pre-conference tutorial Construction Grammar(s) in practice in a hybrid format, the organizers have decided to substitute this tutorial by an online mentoring session for people (PhD students or other researchers) starting to work in CxG. More information will be available on the ICCG11 website soon.

Given that the number of people that will come to Antwerp is at this point hard to estimate, some provisos had to be made regarding the social program. Reception, conference dinner and closing concert will take place as planned. However, the weekend activities (Plantin printing museum, Port of Antwerp boat trip, visit to De Koninck brewery) will only be organized if sufficient people sign up.

For all other information we refer to the ICCG11 website.

You can register online.

We are looking forward to seeing you at ICCG11,

The organizers

  • Abstracts for General Session papers and posters can be submitted until 31 January 2021 through the abstract submission facility EasyChair.
  • Abstracts should not exceed 400 words (exclusive of references) and should clearly state research questions, approach, method, data and (expected) results. Abstracts should also list three to five keywords.

  • If you plan on presenting on a different topic instead, please make a new submission (do not replace an existing submission in this case!)
