Freqently Asked Questions
Why is there a registration fee?
The CL2021 conference fee is based on the commercial contracts that are necessary for the running of a large virtual conference. As the management of a multifaceted conference involves both human resources (technical and administrative services) along with a variety of other technological resources (secure processing of submissions and reviews, payment processing, integrated system, high-capacity streaming, video hosting and more), the registration fee reflects the expected final cost of managing the various tracks of the conference. The Corpus Linguistics International Conference is organised on a not-for-profit basis and the local organising committee members volunteer their time on a non-for-pay basis.
A discounted rate is provided for postgraduate students. Please see the registration page for more details.
What is included in the registration fee?
The registration fee includes access to the conference welcome package in advance. It also includes password-enabled access to our conference system and all conference events, including live plenaries, live Q and A sessions for all papers, and much more Finally, all participants will have access to conference recordings for six months on a password-secured website.
Our user-friendly platform ensures a low-stress experience for participants with dedicated technical support available throughout the conference, when needed. Our technical team will also ensure the smooth running of the online schedule with uninterrupted streaming during asynchronous and synchronous sessions.
Is there an early-bird rate?
Yes. The early-bird rate for both students and faculty will close at 23.00 Irish time on the 30th of April 2021.
I am a PhD student and also receive a stipend/bursary. Can I register for the student rate?
Yes. We understand that some postgraduate students are in receipt of a stipend/bursary or that they may work on a full-time/part-time basis to support their studies. If you are currently registered on an accredited postgraduate programme in linguistics, you can register for CL2021 under the student rate.
Can my presentation be longer than ten minutes?
It has now become more common for conferences of a similar size and duration to CL2021 to limit talks to ten minutes due to the particular constraints of the medium. However, this does not necessarily mean that the content will provide less value to delegates. In this format, speakers will have more freedom to showcase different aspects of their research while allowing for a greater focus on engagement with the audience during live Q&A sessions.
Can I edit my abstract?
Due to the change to an online format, minor changes to abstracts will be accepted via EasyChair in the week of the 3rd to the 9th of May. Authors will receive a reminder beforehand via EasyChair. Please note that only minor changes can be implemented. Please direct queries to academicCL2021@ul.ie.
Can I share my #CL2021 presentation with others after the conference?
Yes. As author and creator/owner of the presentation, you may share your presentation slides and recording(s) on other platforms after the conference.
For our part, we will keep your presentation secure on a restricted-access server. From two weeks before the conference to six months afterwards, participants will be able to download abstracts and access recordings via a password-restricted website.
Can I put the CL2021 logo on my presentation slides?
Yes. Please go to the Dropbox link below to download the conference logo for use on your slides.
Note that presenters generally also include the logos of their institution(s) and funding source(s) on the cover slide, when applicable.
Should I include references with my presentation/poster?
Yes. References should be included with every presentation/poster.
Can I request a particular time slot?
Yes. However, as conference strands are scheduled according to submission numbers, it may not always be possible to grant everyone their preferred time slot.
Will you publish conference proceedings?
We won’t automatically publish proceedings from the conference due to the very high volume of submissions. However, it is likely that other publications will evolve from the conference in the future. More information will be available shortly.
