  The organizing committee of the JALT Pan-SIG Conference 2010 invites all interested applied linguistic researchers to submit presentation proposals for the 9th Annual Pan-SIG Conference, which will be held on Saturday and Sunday, May 22 and 23, 2010 at Osaka Gakuin University. 

  This conference is co-sponsored by the Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL), College and University Educators (CUE), Extensive Reading (ER), Framework and Language Portfolio (FLP), Global Issues in Language Education (GILE), Japanese as a Second Language (JSL), Lifelong Language Learning (LLL), Other Language Educators (OLE),  Pragmatics (PRAG), Study Abroad (SA), Teacher Education (TEd), Testing & Evaluation (TEVAL) Special Interest Groups. The event is organized by the Kyoto Chapter of the Japan Association of Teaching (JALT) with the support of the Osaka Chapter.

  Research in any area of applied linguistics will be welcome. Two types of proposals will be considered:

  1. Reports on completed research
  2. Works in progress (including completed research design and/or data collection)

  Presentations will be 45 minutes in length (including 10 minutes for questions and answers).  Preference will be given to those submissions that fit the theme of the conference and/or general interests of the SIG to which the submission is being made.

  In particular, presenters that actually incorporate learners (or their voices /images/videos) are highly encouraged to submit!

  (2) a 150-word abstract, and
  (3) personal information (name, affiliation, contact details)

Message for teacher-researchers not based in Japan:

Please be aware that as a conference falling under the auspices of the JALT name, we are unable to assist with sponsoring anyone to either attend or present at the conference. Please do not submit a proposal if you have no means of attaining a visa, if necessary, to enter Japan.

Thank you for your understanding,

Pan-SIG Organizing Committee
