Meeting Description:

Second Language Research Forum
‘Innovation in Second Language Acquisition Research: Converging Theory and Practice’
October 6-9, 2011

The Second Language Research Forum (SLRF) is a prestigious and internationally renowned conference which brings together researchers in second language acquisition (SLA) from all over the world. It is the premier conference on SLA in North America providing a venue for established scholars and graduate students to present work on a wide variety of theoretical and empirical issues in SLA.

Call for Papers:

The Second Language Research Forum (SLRF) organizers invite proposals for papers, posters, and colloquium presentations for the 2011 conference at Iowa State University.

Specific areas of focus include, but are not limited to, cognitive SLA, sociolinguistic SLA, psycholinguistic SLA, technology and SLA, testing and assessment, and classroom research and SLA pedagogy.

We welcome proposals for papers and posters in the following areas of second language research:

- Formal Approaches to SLA
- Functional Approaches to SLA
- Conversation Analysis (CA for SLA)
- Second Language Testing and Assessment
- Heritage Language Acquisition
- Psycholinguistic Approaches to SLA
- Second Language Classroom Research
- Naturalistic SLA
- Technology and SLA
- Learner Corpora and SLA
- Second Language Phonetics and Phonology

We are especially interested in proposals that contribute to our theme 'Innovation in Second Language Acquisition Research: Converging Theory and Practice'. This convergence can be examined in a wide range of areas, including (though not limited to) methodology, data collection, ethical issues, materials development, assessment and learning, multilingualism, technology and research-practice interfaces.

We ask that all proposals be submitted online at https://www.softconf.com/c/slrf2011/

Proposals will not be accepted via email, snail mail, blog post, Facebook, or Twitter. Proposals will be selected based on the results of blind peer review.

Call Deadline: April 30, 2011
Notification of Acceptance: July 4, 2011
