The First International Symposium on Bilingualism and Bilingual
Education in Latin America aims at promoting an exchange of knowledge
in the fields of research and teaching on bilingualism and bilingual
education among those who work in majority and minority language
contexts in Latin America.

The Organising Committee invites proposals for presentations on any
aspect of bilingualism in a Latin American context, or in other
contexts which have a direct relationship with Latin America. We
welcome papers regarding sociolinguistic studies of bilingual
communities and migration, language policy and ideology, language
shift, language attrition, developments in bilingual education,
bilingual children, sociolinguistic and grammatical studies of
codeswitching, bilingual speech processing, etc. We would also
welcome experiential, case study accounts of bilingual teaching and
learning in classroom contexts.

Please submit a summary of your paper or poster in approximately 50
words and an abstract of no more than 500 words. The abstract should
include enough detail to allow reviewers to judge the scientific
merits of the proposal. Abstracts will be reviewed by members of the
