Each plenary will be followed by a synchronous exchange with the speaker – access codes for zoom sessions will be sent out by email to all registered participants. Plenaries and discussions will also be livestreamed for open-view access (viewing only, no participation).
The programme for the week beginning Monday 13th of July can be downloaded (last updated 13/07/20). Because of timezone differences, some synchronous sessions may not suit all participants. Therefore, all synchronous sessions will be recorded and made available to registered participants. Click here to download the conference poster.
Click here to download the abstracts for all plenaries, papers and posters (last updated 14/07/20). All papers are organised into themed strands. You should refer to the book of abstracts to find out which strand a particular author or paper is in. All strands will have their own synchronous discussion session on the 16th or the 17th of July.
Registration is open to all, presenters and non-presenting participants alike (up to the 18th of July – contact organisers if you have any problems). Access to the full online conference will only be made available to registered participants. The enrolment fees for TaLC2020 are: 40€ (full academic/professional) / 20€ (reduced rate). See below for information on registration.
All papers and poster presentations can be viewed using the stranded playlists below (click to view – password access only – if you have problems with the password check your vpn). To leave a comment or a question, you can either use the online pad (password access only) or the comment+like feature in Vimeo. To activate this feature, you simply have to click on the small Vimeo logo in the bottom-right corner of the presentation you are viewing. Please remember to keep questions clear and courteous – on the French Vimeo interface it says: souvenez-vous de rester cool et de la jouer fair play! Spot the English borrowing 😉
All live-streamed sessions on the 16th and 17th of July (opening ceremony, strand discussions, poster session, keynote speaker discussions, etc.) will be available following the conference in the Plenary and livestream archive below.
