Second Language Research Forum 2012 (day 1 of 4)

Date: Thursday, October 18th, 2012 Time: 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM

Speaker: Brian MacWhinney (Carnegie Mellon Univ.), Bill VanPatten (Michigan State Univ.), Natasha Tokowicz (Univ. of Pittsburgh), Patsy Duff (Univ. of British Columbia); Call for papers due April 30th

The Second Language Research Forum (SLRF) is the premier venue for sharing second language research in North America. The 2012 Second Language Research Forum (October 18-21) will be hosted in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, by the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. Pittsburgh is known as the "City of Bridges", and we hope to use this idea to highlight the bridges that exist between the various disciplines involved in SLA research. SLRF 2012 will build on this theme with the aim of bridging gaps between individual disciplines that all share a common goal: to improve our understanding of second language learning, acquisition, instruction, and use. This conference will highlight the strengths of each discipline while providing a platform for an open dialogue between fields. To this end, we are inviting proposals for papers and colloquia from any field of study that addresses SLA. Please see the SLRF 2012 Call for Papers for information on how to submit a proposal (deadline: April 30, 2012). For more information, please view the SLRF website visit them on Facebook and Twitter (@slrf2012).
