The 2nd International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation (ICLDC), 'Strategies for Moving Forward,' will be held February 11-13, 2011, at the Hawai'i Imin International Conference Center on the University of Hawai'i at Manoa campus. Two days of optional technical training workshops will precede the conference (Feb. 9-10). An optional Hilo Field Study (on the Big Island of Hawai'i) to visit Hawaiian language revitalization programs in action will immediately follow the conference (Feb. 14-15).

The 1st ICLDC, with its theme 'Supporting Small Languages Together,' underscored the need for communities, linguists, and other academics to work in close collaboration. The theme of the 2nd ICLDC is 'Strategies for Moving Forward.' We aim to build on the strong momentum created at the 1st ICLDC and to discuss research and revitalization approaches yielding rich, accessible records which can benefit both the field of language documentation and speech communities. We hope you will join us.

The Call for Proposals deadline is August 31, 2010.
