The Colóquios da Lusofonia who organised the 7 Annual Colloquia on Lusophone
matters and the 4 Azorean Meetings are fiercely independent and non subsidised
in order to provide a freer than average forum where one can expose their ideas
and projects without fear of repercussions by the thought police who is so
pervasive these days throughout academia and society in general.
We do no not present nice packaged plans, we aim and achieve, thanks to the
contribution of the more than a thousand members ion our lists and attendance
of our colloquia. many ongoing projects are done outside working hours, pro
bono, by our researchers and academics.

The Japanese Society for Language Sciences aims "to promote the language
sciences and contribute to a better understanding of the human mind through
theoretical and experimental research on language" (Article 2, JSLS
Regulations). The scope of this endeavor covers a wide area, including
linguistics (phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics), first
language acquisition, second language acquisition, psycholinguistics, language
production, mother tongue education, foreign language instruction, natural
language processing, brain science, bilingualism, sociolinguistics, discourse
research, and linguistic philosophy, among others. This society hopes that
researchers working on these widely diverse topics reach beyond their own areas
of specialization by supporting the active exchange of opinions and ideas
between researchers working in related fields.
