FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

The 4th International Symposium on Bilingualism, Arizona State
University April 30-May 3, 2003

Arizona State University will host the 4th International Symposium on
Bilingualism (ISB4) from April 30 through May 3, 2003. ISB welcomes
proposals concerning any aspect of research on bilingualism. In
previous years, ISB1 and ISB2 were held at the University of Newcastle
upon Tyne in 1997 and 1999. The third meeting was held at the
University of the West of England - Bristol in 2001. In 2003, the
event will take place in the United States for the first time, at
Arizona State University.

We are pleased to announce that keynote speakers for ISB4 will include
Fred Genesee, Loraine K. Obler, Bernard Spolsky, and Ana Celia
Zentella.


Call for Proposals

The deadline to submit proposals is September 1, 2002.

The 4th International Symposium on Bilingualism invites proposals for
presentations in any aspect of research on bilingualism. In the past,
topics have included grammatical development in bilingual children,
sociolinguistic and grammatical studies of codeswitching, bilingual
speech processing, language impairments in bilinguals, sociolinguistic
studies of bilingual communities and migration, child/adult second
language acquisition, language policy and ideology, language shift,
language attrition/forgetting, and bilingualism in school settings.

Proposals regarding original, previously unpublished research on
bilingualism are invited in three formats: Colloquia, individual
papers, and posters.

Proposals for colloquia. Colloquia are collections of paper
presentations which relate to a narrowly defined topic of interest,
and are offered in either 2-hour or 3-hour time blocks. Proposals for
colloquia are limited to 700 words, and should include brief summaries
of each of the papers to be included, along with paper titles and
individual authors' names. Sufficient detail should be provided to
allow peer reviewers to judge the scientific merit of the proposal. A
chair for the session must also be identified. It is the
responsibility of the person submitting a proposal for a colloquium to
secure the permission and cooperation of all participants before the
proposal is submitted. Proposals for colloquia must indicate whether a
2-hour or 3-hour time block is requested. Typically, each paper
presentation within a colloquium should be scheduled for 30 minutes,
including time for discussion.

Proposals for individual papers or posters. Please submit an abstract
of no more than 700 words. The abstract should include enough detail
to allow reviewers to judge the scientific merits of the
proposal. Abstracts for paper/poster presentations will be
double-blind peer-reviewed.

Authors will be asked to specify a format for the proposal at the time
the work is submitted.


How to submit proposals

Proposals may be submitted electronically at isb4.asu.edu. In cases
where electronic submission is not possible, accommodations may be
made on an individual basis; please inquire at isb4asu.edu (email) or

International Symposium on Bilingualism, to be published by Cascadilla

contributions, but in practice, papers rarely exceed 30 pages and
reviews and squibs are usually no longer than five pages. The deadline
