About the International Symposium on Bilingualism

Arizona State University will host the 4th International Symposium on
Bilingualism (ISB4) from April 30 to May 3, 2003. The International
Symposium on Bilingualism, concerned with basic and applied research
in the field of bilingualism, began at the initiative of Li Wei and
Nick Miller of the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, who organized
ISB1 in 1997 and ISB2 in 1999. The event moved to the University of
the West of England-Bristol in 2001, where Jeanine Treffers-Daller
served as the chair of the organizing committee for ISB3. ISB is
widely regarded as the premier international forum for the discussion
and dissemination of research on bilingualism. It regularly attracts
the most visible members of the field in colloquia, paper and poster
presentations, and keynote addresses.

ISB4 at Arizona State University will feature presentations by
scholars from forty-nine different countries, representing a wide
variety of interests and disciplinary perspectives. To learn more

ISB4 Program Highlights

In addition to the scheduled keynote speeches, colloquia and workshops
listed below, ISB4 will feature 308 paper presentations, organized
into 61 sessions, and 58 poster exhibitions. Due to time constraints,
