      *Call for paper*

      *� Si les genres n�existaient pas et si nous n�en avions pas la ma�trise,
      qu�il nous faille les cr�er pour la premi�re fois dans le processus de
      parole, qu�il nous faille construire chacun de nos �nonc�s, l��change
      verbal serait quasiment impossible �

      (Bakthine, �Esth�tique de la cr�ation verbale�, 1984)*

      COLDOC 2013 aims to examine the notion of genre in a multidisciplinary
      approach and to illustrate the variety of both theoretical and practical
      problems it raises. We seek to articulate different perspectives on gender
      issues and to contribute to identify an essential category for

      Although it has long remained been considered to taxonomic approaches, the
      issue of genre categorisation sees new developments thanks to the interest
      it has raised in various humanities disciplines, gradually integrating
      different aspects in their definitional approaches: contexts of utterance,
      medium (written or spoken), language norms, social practices, etc. (see S.
      Branca, � Types, modes et genres entre langue et discours �, Langage et
      Soci�t� n�87, p. 5 -24, mars 1999).

      This renewal is also expressed by the fact that the studies less
      systematically seek to define it through production rules or classificatory
      categories, but rather try to examine the question of genre through the
      process of recognition and interpretation. Theoretical approaches and case
      studies tend to focus on the addressee's point of view: horizons of
      expectations, habits, cultural pre-conceptions, cognitive framework,
      communication circuit, etc. The genre is then modeled as a set of
      constraints or necessary conditions of meaning.

      COLDOC 2013, bringing contributions from diverse backgrounds, aims to
      review the state of the art and the diversity of work on genres. Relying on
      theoretical and applied propositions, COLDOC 2013 aims to suggest new
      descriptive categories needed in the search for meaning in written and oral
      discourse. This 2013 edition of COLDOC therefore strongly encourages
      participation from master students, PhD students candidates and young
      researchers in general linguistics, corpus linguistics, diachronic
      linguistics, sociolinguistics, didactic, computational linguistics (written
      or speech) and, more generally, any area that would be interested in the
      study of genres for itself or as a category of analysis.

      Several issues - solely as examples - can be considered as sources of
      inspiration. These issues, both theoretical and practical, highlight the
      variety of possible approaches in the study of written and oral genres:

      - Why categorize according to genres? How should boundaries between genres
      be established?
      - How should genres be defined, formalized and modeled?
      - What are the dynamics implied in genre building?
      - What are the implied relation(s) between �genre� and �linguistic
      operations� (describe, summarize, tell)?
      - Does genre influence grammatical phenomena?
      - What are the sociolinguistic instantiations of genre?
      - How can usage, variety and language registers linguistic variables become
      genre-specific social markers?
      - How does corpus linguistics answer to genre study?
      - How can genre study in written productions be applied to oral genres and
      vice versa?
      - What observables is genre assignment based on? Can it be automatically
      - What is the role of genre as a tool for teaching and learning language
      and literature?
      - How can we categorize and interpret the emergence of new linguistic
      practices according to new communication devices (forums, blogs, social
      networks, chats, tweets, emails, etc.)?
      - Do techniques for automatic analysis of texts and discourses question or
      redistribute the categorization into genres? Do they contribute to other
      forms of categorization?
      - Is the oral-written distinction a major distinction in the study of
      - How can genre be accounted for in the development of NLP resources
      (lexicon, grammar, parsers, etc.)?

      *Invited Speakers:
      The two days of the colloquium will be opened by a talk of invited
      We are pleased to announce the participation of Jean-Michel Adam
      (University of Lausanne, Switzerland).
      A second invited speaker is soon to be announced.

      *Submission Process:
      PhD students and young researchers interested in the issue have to submit a
      two-page project including a title and a list of five key words (font 12;
      margin 2,5; 1,5 line spacing).
      A third page will include the bibliography linked to the subject.

      Non-French speakers can submit their project in English.

      *Evaluation Process:
      The draft articles will be submitted to a blind review process by two
      members of the scientific committee. The selected projects can result,
      according to the scientific committee decision, in either a 20 minutes oral
      communication or a poster communication.

      The articles will be reviewed again by the members of the scientific
      committee, so that the authors can receive feedback on their production.
      The authors will have to take comments and suggestions offered by the
      readers into account in the final report of their articles to ensure the
      quality of the proceedings.

      The articles must be formatted using suitable models given to the authors.

      Oral communications: those will include a twenty minute presentation
      followed by a ten minute discussion and then for long paper (8p).
      Communication by posters: the colloquium will organize a poster session (A1
      format) and then short papers (4p).

      Submissions will be done using the

      All accepted papers (short and long) will be published and available in
      print and electronic versions and will be made available at the start of
      the conference.


      The colloquium will take place on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 November
      2013, in Paul Ricoeur Thesis hall, Paris-Ouest University, 200 avenue de la
      R�publique, Nanterre.

      Program: available by the end of July
