6.       ACCOMMODATION

Conference delegates are responsible for arranging their own accommodation.

There are numerous guest houses and hotels in the vicinity (the Die Bult area) of the conference venue, and only a few are listed in Addendum A. Addendum B contains the list of guesthouses in other areas of Potchefstroom for which you will need to drive to get to campus. When you make your booking, you may ask about the distance from the NWU PUK campus and the guesthouse.

 

7.       TRANSPORT

7.1          Airport transfers

It is the custom of the NWU to wait for its guests at the OR Tambo International Airport. The organizing committee will therefore arrange transport for all delegates (national and international) between the OR Tambo airport and Potchefstroom. You should inform the local organizer of your travel details (arrival and departure dates and time, airline, flight number, etc.) and be sure to obtain confirmation of the arrangement and costs involved.

Delegates landing at Lanseria Airport should also inform the conference organizers to see whether transport can also be arranged.

 

7.2         Transport between places of accommodation and the conference venue

The conference organisers can unfortunately not provide transport between places of accommodation and the conference venue.

 

8.       CONFERENCE ORGANISATION

All papers will be adjudicated.

 

Prospective presenters are to submit abstracts to reach AFRILEX before 31 March 2014. Abstracts must be between 600 and 800 words long for adjudicators to make informed judgements on the central argument of the paper, especially given that conference proceedings are not published.

Papers that do not comply with these requirements will unfortunately be rejected.

 

Abstracts should be sent by e-mail to Dr Dion Nkomo: E-mail address: d.nkomo@ru.ac.za | Postal address: School of Languages, Rhodes University, P.O. Box 94, Grahamstown 6140, South Africa | Tel.: +27 (0)46 603 7243 | Fax: +27 (0)46 603 8107.

 

Receipt of abstracts will be acknowledged and feedback will be given to authors as soon as it is received back from the adjudicators. Abstracts of accepted papers will be distributed during the conference. MS PowerPoint presentation facilities will be available. As a backup, presenters will be asked to e-mail their slide show ahead of the conference.

Please note: It is compulsory for presenters of papers, workshops and special sessions to register in advance (i.e. before 1 June 2014).
