Call for Papers

Proposal Due Date Extended: February 1, 2010 by 5:00 pm PST

The University of Oregon and the Northwest Indian Language Institute are pleased
to announce that we will be hosting the 17th Annual Stabilizing Indigenous
Languages Symposium held June 25, 26, and 27, 2010. The University of Oregon, in
Eugene, sits on ancestral lands of the Kalapuya people.

Language and Place are intrinsically tied together. Indigenous thought and
lifeways are rooted in the places people have lived since time immemorial. With
this thought in mind, please submit proposals that support these ideas through
educating and informing language workers, advocates, programs, and linguists
from around the world.

Symposium Session Information
We invite you to submit a proposal that will fit in one of four venues:
workshops, demonstrations, poster sessions, and panel sessions. The symposium
committee will select proposals that focus on language documentation,
revitalization, maintenance, methodology, research, practices, and teaching
which address and/or incorporate the Language and Place theme.

We are especially seeking presentations that inform and educate Symposium
participants on the best practices in language revitalization/maintenance; not
presentations which primarily promote a specific company, product, service, or
solution. Sessions will range in time from 45, 60, and 90 minute blocks.

Important Dates
Complete proposals must be received on February 1, 2010 by 5:00 pm PST. Online
and email submissions are highly encouraged!

The committee will contact you on or before February 15, 2010 to let you know if
your proposal has been selected for presentation at the Symposium. All
decisions are final.

Symposium Waste-free Goal
In being mindful of our environment, our goal is to be a waste-free event.
Therefore we encourage presenters and participants alike to help in this effort
to avoid unnecessary waste or excessive use of paper. To this end, we encourage
presenters to offer digital materials to participants when at all possible. We
would be glad to offer the Symposium website as a place for participants to
download materials before or after the Symposium. Please let us know if you
would like to take advantage of this offer.

Symposium proposals should include the following:
- Name of the person(s) who will be part of the session
- Affiliation (tribe, nation, organization, etc.)
- Title and description of the session - up to 300 words
- Audio, visual, computer needs - please note, we cannot provide lap top computers
- Type of session (panel session, paper, poster session, presentation, workshop)
- Length of session (45, 60, 90 minutes)
- Presenter(s) profile(s) - on a separate page please include the following
information about each presenter in your proposal: name, title (if applicable),
affiliation (tribe, nation, organization, university, etc.), contact information
(including email and phone number), and a biography of no more than 100 words
per presenter.

Please indicate if you are willing to make your handouts digitally available
before and/or after the SILS

Something Different at SILS 2010
This year we would like to offer a space for language groups, alliances, and
organizations to meet. If you are a leader of a language organization, please
send in a one page Meeting Proposal. Be sure to include: your group name, name
and contact information for your group's main person/contact, expected number of
participants, and the type of meeting you will be having (business meeting,
language/language family work group, open discussion forum, etc.). Also,
indicate if the meeting is open for anyone to attend. A meeting agenda would be
a good resource to include with the proposal, if available.

Please mail your session proposal information to:
