Meeting Description:

The 2nd International Conference on Language Documentation and 
Conservation (ICLDC), 'Strategies for Moving Forward,' 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). 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.

The Call for Proposals deadline is August 31, 2010.

Plenary Speakers:
Keren D. Rice, University of Toronto
Wayan Arka, Australian National University/Udayana University
Larry Kimura, University of Hawai'i at Hilo

six best student abstracts submitted to help defray travel expenses to come

this scholarship due to funding source regulations, and only one scholarship 
awarded per abstract.)  If you wish to be considered for a scholarship, 
please select the 'Yes' button on the proposal submission form.

Selected papers from the conference will be invited to submit to the journal
Language Documentation & Conservation for publication. (Most
