linguistics/language and law, including but not limited to topics such as:
- courtroom interaction
- police interviews
- courtroom interpreting and translating
- the readability/comprehensibility of legal documents
- the analysis/interpretation of legal texts
- the communicative challenges of 'vulnerable' witnesses

We are pleased to announce the following keynote speakers:

Malcolm Coulthard

Edward Finegan

Peter van Koppen
http://www.nscr.nl/medewerkers/cv/pvankoppen_cvE.htm

Presentations will be 20 minutes, with 10 minutes for questions and discussion.
Abstracts should be 300-350 words long and can be submitted electronically at
the conference website http://iafl09.let.vu.nl/

We also invite proposals for thematic sessions which are scheduled for 2-hour
blocks, with a maximum of two linked sessions. Organizers may organize as they
choose, but time should be allocated for presentations, discussion and audience
response. Proposals with an indication of participants and a brief description
of their contributions may be submitted electronically at the conference website
http://iafl09.let.vu.nl/

Important Dates:
November 14 2008: Abstracts individual papers and thematic sessions are due
January 2009: Notification of acceptance of papers.

Posters Only:
We want to encourage students, as well as anyone else who prefers to
present their work in poster format, to participate. Because November 14
may be a bit early for some we have a second round for posters only.
The deadline is February 15, 2009 (notification of acceptance early March).
The reason we can afford a later deadline for posters is that poster
presentations can be programmed more easily than individual papers and
sessions. People who need a visa to visit the Netherlands should probably
submit their poster abstract by the deadline for individual paper
presentations and thematic sessions (November 14) in order to make
the necessary travel arrangements.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
Organizing Committee: Martha Komter, Joyce Lamerichs, Esther Pascual, Keun Young
Sliedrecht, Petra Sneijder, Olga Steenhoek-Kolbasina, Tessa van Charldorp, Fleur
