Call Deadline: 31-Dec-2009 

Meeting Description:

The Child Language Seminar (CLS) was first held in 1977. It is an interdisciplinary conference attracting a diverse audience of, among others, psychologists, linguists and speech and language therapists, and provides a forum for research on first and second language acquisition in typically and atypically developing children.

Our keynote speakers will be:

Professor Sue Gathercole (University of York) - 'Working Memory, Language and Classroom Learning'

Dr Ann Senghas (Barnard College of Columbia University, New York) - 'From Gestures to Grammar - How Learners Created Nicaraguan Sign Language'

Dr Simon Fisher (Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics at the University of Oxford)

There will also be an invited symposium on autism and language led by Dr David Williams (City University London). 

Call for Papers:

Proposals are invited for papers and posters related to child language acquisition and disorders. Proposals will be considered on any aspect of children's first or subsequent language development (e.g., grammar, phonology, lexicon, pragmatics, discourse, literacy, bilingualism, sign language, psycholinguistic processing) or on any aspect relating to children with language difficulties (e.g., description, assessment, remediation). The CLS is a peer-reviewed research conference and all proposals will be reviewed blindly by members of the organising committee.

Presentation Format:

Proposals should indicate whether an oral presentation or poster is preferred. The programme committee views both formats as having equal value but reserves the right to switch formats to suit the programme. Presenters will be notified about the final format of their presentation at the time their proposal is accepted.

Oral presentations will last 20 mins, plus 10 mins for discussion. Posters may be viewed all day, with a wine reception at which authors will be present in the evening.

Proposal Format:

Proposals must be written in English and include the following: 
Cover Page:

Title of presentation 
Authors' names and affiliations 
Name, address, telephone number and email address of contact person 
Preferred presentation format (oral presentation or poster)

Title of presentation 
Summary of research undertaken (300 words maximum, single spaced) 
Do not include authors' names.

Submitting Proposals:

Proposals must be composed in either MS Word or RTF format with paper size set to A4 and submitted as an attachment to an email (not as part of the mail body of the email) to: Chloe.Marshall.1 at city.ac.uk.
