Meeting Description:

The 35th Annual Boston University Conference on Language Development
November 5-7, 2010

The Boston University Conference on Language Development (BUCLD) was started in
1976 by students in the Applied Psycholinguistics Program. Last year the 33rd
annual BUCLD took place on October 31-November 2, 2008.

The Conference, which has become one of the best known conferences on language
development in the world, is now run by students in the Program in Applied
Linguistics, under the guidance of a faculty adviser.

The Conference involves year-round planning and draws over 500 people from all
over the U.S. and around the world. It includes presentations in such areas as
theoretical approaches to language acquisition, cross-cultural language
development, second language development, language disorders, and literacy

Each year, close to 500 abstracts are submitted to the conference, from which
about 87 papers and 66 posters are chosen for presentation. Internationally
renowned researchers also give keynote and plenary addresses, as well as a lunch
symposium on a topic of current interest.

The Conference is funded largely by the money taken in each year at the
Conference, including registration fees. In addition, the Conferences in 2007
through 2011 are supported in part by the National Science Foundation under
Grant No. BCS 0548399 and the National Institutes of Health under Grant No. R13

We are pleased to announce that pre-registration for BUCLD 35 is now available at:
