Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce that the Child Language Seminar is returning to
Newcastle upon Tyne in 2006. It will be hosted by the School of Education,
Communication & Language Sciences at Newcastle University and is being organised
by Thomas Klee and Deborah James. When the CLS was last held in Newcastle in
2003, papers were presented by child language researchers from over 20
countries, underlining the international appeal of this interdisciplinary
conference. The CLS was first held in 1977 and provides a forum for research on
first language development in all populations.

Newcastle upon Tyne was voted England's favourite city break destination by
readers of the Guardian and Observer for two years running. Located in the North
East of England, the city is easily accessible by rail (1½ hours from Edinburgh,
3 hours from London) and air (direct flights to over 25 destinations and
excellent connections though London and Amsterdam). Known for the friendly
welcome visitors receive, the city has impressive Georgian architecture,
inspiring cultural venues and is within easy reach of the beautiful Northumbrian
coastline, Hadrian's Wall, the Scottish Borders and stunning Durham city and

The conference dinner will be held at The Sage Gateshead, the spectacular £70
million venue for live music on the River Tyne which opened in 2005 and the
first building for the performing arts designed by Sir Normal Foster's
architectural team. The conference will be rounded off with a ceilidh dance on
the final night.

Proposals are invited for papers and posters on issues related to child language
development and disorders. Submission deadline is 1 March 2006. More information
about submitting proposals, registration and accommodation may be found at:
