of the discipline, education or any pertinent issue involving pidgin and
Creole languages or other contact languages are invited, beginning 1st
June, 2010, for anonymous review by a five member panel.

Any member may submit one single-author abstract. There is not a limit on
the number of coauthored abstracts. After an abstract has been submitted,
changes of author, affiliation, title, or wording of the abstract, other than
