I know a second call for papers would usually go out months after the first, but the 
compressed timescale of this conference dictates otherwise! I'm also concerned about 
emails being lost in the post-Easter backlog if people have booked leave and/or 
research time. Here we go then...

I'm delighted to announce a one-day conference at Bangor University on 23 May 2016, 
with NO REGISTRATION FEE, on the subject of 'The Welsh language and the Workplace'. 
Presenters and spectators are both welcome, and the latter are also welcome to take 
part in the roundtable discussion at the end of the day.

The plenary speaker will be Prof. John Edwards, of St Francis Xavier University 
(Canada), editor of the Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, and 
prolific author on topics of minority languages, very much including Welsh!

The registration and abstract submission page is here: https://goo.gl/PEJPW0 
(includes plenary abstract, conference venue, and directions). Please register 
whether you're coming in a presenting or non-presenting capacity.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is Tues 19th April, 3pm. The registration 
deadline for attending in a non-presenting capacity is Mon 16th May, 3pm.

The event is sponsored by the Language, Culture and Identity Thematic Group of WISERD 

A provisional timetable will be released once all the abstracts are approved.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact either me, Rhys Jones 
(raj at aber.ac.uk) or Sarah Creed (CreedS at cardiff.ac.uk).

Please forward this message on to anyone you feel may be interested.

See you in Bangor!
