As part of the long-term reach of the 2017 Symposium in Brno, we are planning to publish a book of papers by the key speakers. We anticipate approximately 15 papers, each between 3,000 and 5,000 words.
While it would be preferable if your paper related closely to the presentation you give at the Symposium, it needn’t. We feel that the professional work that any of the you are currently engaged deserves to be in the public arena.
We intend to publish the book with Versatile, a new, independent ELT publisher based in Brno, who we would like to encourage now and in future liaisons. Their website is versatile.pub. The book will have an ISBN furnished by the Czech National Library. As is becoming common practice, it will be available through print-on-demand technology. Each contributor will receive two free copies of the book.
The deadline for submitting the papers is two months after the Symposium on Monday, August 7th. The papers will be edited and discussed with authors during the following two months since we aim to launch the book in October.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
