Meeting Description:

Language is constantly evolving, whether we consider it from the perspective of
its use in practical contexts or as a system. This congress presents an
opportunity to learn about, reflect on, and extend SFL's various ways of
thinking about language evolving. The focus includes work on text - context
relations in a variety of fields, including early language evolution, language
development, language education, language revitalization, multimodal relations,
multiliteracies, discourse analysis, translation studies, language policy
studies and more. We will be joined by researchers, teachers and students
working on these topics from around the globe.

The congress will be preceded by a Pre-congress Institute, comprised of three
courses, from 12-16 July.

We are delighted to call for the contribution of papers and workshops to ISFC
2010, to be held at the University of British Columbia (http://www.ubc.ca/), in
Vancouver, Canada, July 18-23 2010. We invite submissions of papers and workshop
proposals that address the conference theme (Language Evolving), but also any
