http:/ In addition to plenary addresses from

oral presentations (presented in two parallel sessions) and 50
poster-based presentations that were accepted on the basis of refereed
abstracts. Topics cover a wide range of issues in the general area of
language, gender, and sexuality studies, and presenters come not only

Australia, New Zealand) but also from many other places (the list
includes at least Spain, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Estonia,

that on research ethics is facilitated by Penelope Eckert and Tanya
Matthews, and that on phonetic research is facilitated by Lisa Lavoie
and Rob Podesva. Full descriptions of the workshops will be posted
online very soon, and we have already begun registering people who
have expressed interest in them.
