SIGN LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS SOCIETY
A new international society for sign language and linguistics

There is a need for those using and studying sign languages to be in
touch with one another and to have the possibility of exchanging
information. An international conference serves that purpose as does a
journal.

An international society has an additional task: it promotes contact
on a more frequent basis.
For example:
By having an electronic newsletter
By ensuring a regular international conference
By acting as a clearing house for enquiries
By stimulating activities around sign languages and linguistics

The association which previously had these tasks (ISLA, founded in
1986) has been extinct for some time. The field definitely needs such
an organization. The group of researchers in the Netherlands and
Belgium is prepared to start up a new society.

Amongst other things the meeting at TISLR in September 2004 will cover
the mission of the society, the organisation such as web-site,
newsletter, link to the journals and the draft constitution.
