CALL FOR SYMPOSIUM PROPOSALS

We are soliciting 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. The symposium format is open, but has frequently included 2-3 speakers presenting research from differing angles on a common theme. We anticipate including two such symposia in the schedule, one being the Saturday lunchtime symposium, the other closing the conference on Sunday.

Proposals should include a list of the participants and a specification of the format, and should name at least one organizer who will be able to work with the BUCLD organizing committee in setting up the symposium. Submissions can be sent by email to langconf@bu.edu with "Symposium proposal” indicated in the subject line. Please limit symposium proposals to 1000 words or fewer.

DEADLINE: April 15, 2014

Decisions on symposia will be made by June.

NOTE: Submissions of abstracts for 20-minute talks and poster presentations are not being solicited at this time. The deadline for those will be 8:00 PM EST, May 15, 2014.

FURTHER INFORMATION

For poster presenters: The dimensions of the board for mounting posters is 34 x 46 inches, and although landscape orientation is recommended, you may orient it as you wish. If your poster is larger than 34 x 46 inches, you may have trouble mounting your poster to the board. Binder clips will be provided for your use.

Please direct any questions about the conference to langconf@bu.edu.

For changes in author names or affiliations or anything else related to abstracts, please contact abstract@bu.edu.
