2nd International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation: 
Strategies for Moving Forward.
Honolulu, Hawai'i, February 11-13, 2011

The 2nd International Conference on Language Documentation and Conservation 
(ICLDC) 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 - 
see details below). 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.
