CALL FOR PROPOSALS--SLRF 1994 AND SLRF 1995

The Second Language Research Forum (SLRF) is an annual conference sponsored
by individual universities. In the past, SLRF conferences have been held
at UCLA, USC, University of Hawaii, University of Oregon, and Michigan
State University.In 1993, SLRF will be in Pittsburgh, jointly hosted by the
University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie-Mellon University; proposals to host
the 14th and 15th annual SLRF conferences are now being sought. In writing
a proposal, please address the following questions:

1. What dates do you propose for the conference? SLRF has typically
 been held in the late winter/early spring, but this is negotiable.
2. What would be the theme of the conference, if any?
3. Would there be any special subsections?
4. Who would be involved in organization: students, faculty, or both? If
 you have an organizing committee at this point, list names.
5. Will there be institutional seed money available?
6. Are there funds to cover possible deficits?
7. Where will the conference be held: a campus conference center, classrooms,
 a hotel?
8. What registration fees would be charged for pre- and on-site registration,
 for students and non-students?

 such housing? How far is housing from the conference site?

 conference site?
11. What publicity will be undertaken?
12. Are there other universities nearby from which to draw conference
 participants?
13. Is the site serviced by a major airport? If not, how does one get to
 the conference site?
