  2. Posters will be on display throughout the day of presentation. Poster presentations will run during the lunch period. Poster presentations are recommended for authors who wish to present smaller, more specific topics or descriptions of particular projects.
  3. Technology Showcase is a new feature to be introduced at ICLDC 2019 is the Technology Showcase, which is a networking event for developers, linguists, and community members involved in creating, repurposing, or otherwise utilizing a wide variety of technologies for language work to interact in an informal, hands-on session. The Technology Showcase will provide an opportunity for face-to-face contact and hopefully lead to productive collaborations—both between developers and communities, and also between developers and between communities who might not be aware of others working on similar efforts. We are soliciting developers (broadly defined) to submit proposals that outline the tool that they have developed, which include but are not limited to software, apps, web technologies, repurposed uses of software, novel scripts.

For more information including abstract guidelines, online submission form and scholarship opportunities, please see the conference website.
