  • Abstract acceptance will begin to be emailed out during the second half of January, and will continue after that. Your patience in hearing from us on abstract acceptance is appreciated.


There are now two choices for abstract submission:

  1. Via email with attachment of files. For this choice, follow the instructions on the Call for Papers web page (or read the corresponding pdf file).
    Note: If your abstract contains Chinese characters that are not encoded in Unicode (e.g., if they are encoded in GB or Big5, for example), abstract submission via email attachment (in .doc/.rtf/.pdf format) is the recommended choice to ensure proper display of Chinese characters in your text.
  2. Via online submission. This choice is available from the online Abstract Submission Form. If there is text in Chinese characters, the text that is input into the online submission form must be Unicode-based for proper display of Chinese characters after the form is submitted.
    Before filling out this online form, please be sure to read the instructions for abstract submission in the Call for Papers (e.g., for format, page length, etc.). [Or view the same instructions as a pdf file.]

Note: We hope that you will not encounter any problems in submitting your abstract online. However, this is the first time that online submission of NACCL abstracts is offered. Hence, if you have difficulties submitting online, please email us at ‹›, and include a statement of the problem that you had encountered. That will aid us in diagnosing and fixing the problem as needed. Thank you.
