Meeting Description:

CASPSLaP brings together leading experts in the field of the second language acquisition (SLA) of Spanish and Portuguese pronunciation. The presentations will include a wide range of topics. By focusing on the breadth of approaches currently taken by scholars researching the SLA of Spanish and Portuguese phonology, this conference aims to present the state-of-the-art in second language phonological acquisition. In addition to the general session, the conference will feature two special sessions, one on L3 Phonology and the other on Empirical Outcomes of Explicit Pronunciation Instruction. There will also be a poster session, as well as an interactive, pedagogy-focused session called ''Ignite'' that addresses best practices in classroom pronunciation instruction.

Confirmed invited speakers:
Jennifer Cabrelli (University of Illinois at Chicago)
Germán Zárate-Sández (Western Michigan University)

2nd Call for Papers:

Oral Presentations and Posters:
We invite abstracts for 20-minute oral presentations and posters on any topic related to the second language acquisition of the Spanish and Portuguese sound systems, as well as oral presentations for two special sessions.

Special Sessions:
L3 Phonology
Empirical Outcomes of Explicit Pronunciation Instruction

Anonymous, one-page abstracts for oral presentations and posters, with a second page allowed for references and/or examples, may be submitted at by 11:59 PM CST on September 15, 2021. Abstracts may be submitted as Word or PDF documents. Please embed any special fonts. Each author may submit at most one abstract as sole author and one jointly-authored abstract (or, alternatively, two jointly-authored abstracts). Ignite submissions will not count against this total.

Proposals for Ignite:
We solicit proposals for an interactive pedagogy-focused session during which participants will present brief (ten-minute) micro-teaching lessons. These lessons should showcase a specific pedagogical technique or activity to teach a particular sound or process, or to help learners overcome a particular difficulty.

Proposals should include a detailed lesson plan with a title, statement of objectives, summary of steps or tasks, the developed activity/activities itself/themselves, and suggested follow-ups (for example, other activities, homework assignments, and/or assessments), plus any references. Submit materials at by 11:59 PM CDT on September 15, 2021.
