Meeting Description:

International, multidisciplinary symposium on any aspect of research on 

The 6th International Symposium on Bilingualism invites proposals for 
presentations on any aspect of research on bilingualism. Topics may include 
grammatical development in bilingual children, sociolinguistic and grammatical 
studies of code-switching, psycholinguistic studies of bilingualism, bilingual 
speech processing, language impairment in bilinguals, translation and 
interpreting, sociolinguistic studies of bilingual communities and migration, 
child/adult second language acquisition, language policy and ideology, 
language shift, language attrition/forgetting. 
Proposals regarding original, previously unpublished research on bilingualism 
are invited in three formats: colloquia, individual papers, and posters. 

Proposals for colloquia: colloquia are collections of paper presentations 
which relate to a narrowly defined topic of interest, and are offered in 
either 2-hour or 3-hour time blocks. Proposals for colloquia are limited to 
3000 characters, and should include brief summaries of each of the papers to 
be included, along with individual paper titles and individual authors' names, 
professional affiliations, and email addresses. Sufficient detail should be 
provided to allow peer reviewers to judge the scientific merit of the 
proposal. A chair for the session must also be identified. It is the 
responsibility of the person submitting a proposal for a colloquium to secure 
the permission and cooperation of all participants before the proposal is 
submitted. Proposals for colloquia must indicate whether a 2-hour or 3-hour 
time block is requested. Typically, each paper presentation within a 
colloquium should be scheduled for 30 minutes, including time for discussion. 

Proposals for individual papers or posters: please submit an abstract of no 
more than 3000 characters. The abstract should include enough detail to allow 
reviewers to judge the scientific merits of the proposal. Abstracts for paper/
poster presentations will be double-blind peer-reviewed. Authors will be asked 
to specify a format (paper presentation or poster session) at the time the 
work is submitted. 

Please submit your proposal online at www.isb6.org. Deadline for proposal 
submission is October 13th, 2006. If you have problems with online submission, 
please do not hesitate to contact our conference coordinator at isb6uni-
hamburg.de or via snail-mail.
