27th Annual Meeting of the Society for Text & Discourse

The Society for Text & Discourse is an international society of researchers who investigate all aspects of text and discourse including processing and analysis. The purpose of the Society is to foster and promote excellence in research, to enhance communication among researchers in different disciplines, and to contribute to the education and professional development of those in the field or entering the field.

The submission page for ST&D 2017 is now open. We invite students and scholars from various disciplines (e.g., psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, learning sciences, and others) to attend and participate. We invite proposals for individual papers and posters presenting original research on text and discourse processing, representation, and analysis. Click here to submit your proposal.

 

Symposia or Themed Session Proposals

If you have suggestions for Symposia or Themed Sessions, please send them (title, short description, list of potential contributors) to the Program Chairs (John Sabatini and Tenaha O’Reilly) by January 16, 2017. Agreed upon symposium proposals will then be submitted following the same guidelines as regular proposals.

Submission-based Awards

The Society recognizes excellence in research with two annual awards based on papers submitted to the Annual Meeting. Recipients of each award receive a certificate and a $150 award check.

The Outstanding Student Paper Award: The Outstanding Student Paper Award (OSPA) recognizes quality in work that is predominantly that of a graduate student. Accordingly, the student must be first author on the paper. The student’s major advisor will be asked to confirm that this work has been done primarily by the student.

The Jason Albrecht Outstanding Young Scientist Award: The Jason Albrecht Outstanding Young Scientist Award (JAOYSA) honors the memory of Jason Albrecht, a promising young text and discourse researcher who passed away in 1996. The award recognizes an outstanding paper based on a doctoral dissertation. The doctoral candidate or recent doctorate must be first author on the paper. The student’s dissertation advisor must send an email certifying that the work is based on the nominee’s doctoral dissertation, and recommending the candidate for the award. Proposals eligible for the Jason Albrecht Outstanding Young Scientist Award and the Outstanding Student Paper Award will undergo two reviews: one by the regular Program Review Committee and a second by the Awards Committee. Only proposals that are accepted for presentation as spoken papers on the program will be considered for the awards. Finalists may be asked for additional information regarding the submission for the final award review process.
