THE 44th ANNUAL BOSTON UNIVERSITY CONFERENCE ON LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT
NOVEMBER 7-10, 2019
Keynote Speaker: Cynthia Fisher (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign)
Plenary Speaker: Jan Edwards (University of Maryland)
We will be accepting two kinds of submissions: symposium proposals and abstracts for 20-minute talks or posters (see below for deadlines).
CALL FOR SYMPOSIUM PROPOSALS
We are currently soliciting 1000-word proposals for 90-minute symposia for the Boston University Conference on Language Development on any topic likely to be of broad interest to the conference attendees.
Proposals should include a list of the participants, topics, and format, and should name at least one organizer. Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Symposium proposal" in the subject line.
DEADLINE: All symposium proposal submissions must be received by April 1, 2019. Decisions on symposia will be made by June.
CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
DEADLINE: All abstract submissions must be received by 8:00 PM EST, May 1, 2019. Please note this is an earlier deadline than in previous years.
Submissions that present research on any topic in the fields of first and second language acquisition from any theoretical perspectives will be fully considered.
We encourage submissions from scholars in countries affected by the new travel restrictions. We will arrange remote presentation for accepted abstracts by scholars who are unable to attend for this reason.
