Message 2: Language in the Mind?

Subject: Language in the Mind?


		*Second Call for Papers*

LANGUAGE IN THE MIND? 
IMPLICATIONS FOR RESEARCH AND EDUCATION

Organised by: Department of English Language and Literature
National University of Singapore

Monday 4 - Wednesday 6 September 2000
Venue: Fort Canning Lodge 

The Conference will focus on issues related to the role of the mind in the
learning and use of language. Such issues could include questions about the
extent to which language is an innate mental process and the extent to which
it is out there in society. It could also include, for example, questions
about the mental processes involved in the acquisition of language, in the
reception and production of language, and in the mental activities of social
interaction. 

Keynote speakers: 		Professor Jean Aitchison, University of
Oxford
				Professor Rod Ellis, University of Auckland
				Professor James Lantolf, Pennsylvania State
University 

Subject to final arrangements, each keynote speaker will additionally take
part in a workshop, a symposium, or a closing debate.

Proposals for parallel paper presentations, symposiums and workshops are
invited on any aspects of research and education that relate to the theme of
"Language in the Mind?" Proposals will be particularly welcome in the
following areas:

*	Language acquisition and development
*	Neurolinguistics
*	Psycholinguistics
*	Sociolinguistics
*	Linguistic analysis
*	Discourse analysis
*	Composition studies
*	Language teaching methodology and materials

The conference aims to attract wide interest among academic researchers,
teacher educators, and teachers in schools. Proposal writers are encouraged
to specify which of these groups might form an appropriate target audience
for their presentations. 

Call for Papers, Symposiums and Workshops

Proposals for parallel paper presentations, symposiums and workshops are
invited on any aspects of research and education that relate to the
conference theme. As the same terms can mean different things at different
conferences, we briefly describe each type of session. "Short" and "Long"
are comparative values, not absolutes.

Parallel papers: 	Speakers present a clearly focused issue, and give a
summary of a research study and its findings (Short Parallel Papers) or a
more comprehensive account (Long Parallel Papers). Position papers on major
themes, if thoroughly researched, will also be considered. For both Short
and Long categories, the organisers envisage no more than three parallel
sessions at any one time.

Short Parallel Papers: 20 minutes presentation, 10 minutes
discussion. Presentations should be concise, not rushed, and should
not exceed 20 minutes. The organisers expect a total of around 25
papers in this category. (Three mornings)

Long Parallel Papers: 45 minutes presentation, 15 minutes
discussion. Presentations should be thorough, not rushed, and should
not exceed 45 minutes. The organisers expect a total of around ten
papers in this category. (One afternoon)

Symposiums: One combined proposal is invited from each symposium
team. Three or four speakers present position papers on a single
agreed issue, devoting equal time to each, and allowing at least 30
minutes at the end for discussion. Total duration: 2 hours.

The organisers would like to offer two symposiums in parallel on the
final afternoon. Diversity of viewpoints on a common theme will be
particularly welcome.

Workshops: These are active participatory sessions. Workshop leaders
(one or more per workshop) briefly present an activity that relates to
the conference theme and that can be expected to engage the
participants. All workshop participants then work on this activity,
for at least half the available time. Workshop leaders provide support
and feedback as needed. Outcomes and experiences are discussed, and
workshop leaders and other participants summarise the implications of
the activity for the conference theme.

	Short Workshops: total duration 90 minutes.
	Long Workshops: total duration 3 hours.

The organisers hope to offer two long and two short workshops, or some other
combination, on one afternoon.

For all events, abstracts of not more than 300 words are invited by 30 April
2000. 
Notification of outcome: By 31 May 2000. 

Please send the proposal and abstract to:
