Call Deadline: 01-Feb-2015 

Meeting Description:

The identification of Specific Language Impairment (SLI) in children growing
up in bilingual contexts poses a major challenge for researchers, and has
clear clinical and educational repercussions: How do we know if a child’s
language difficulties are due to SLI or due to insufficient exposure to the
language being assessed? Bi-SLI 2015 aims to bring together all researchers
who wish to share results of studies on language development in children
acquiring language in contexts of bilingualism associated with SLI (Bi-SLI)
and on how these can be distinguished from contexts of bilingualism associated
with typical development (Bi-TD).  European COST Action IS0804 'Language
Impairment in a Multilingual Society: Linguistics Patterns and the Road to
Assessment' (http://www.bi-sli.org/) developed a series of tools, dubbed
LITMUS (Language Impairment Testing in Multilingual Settings), designed to
disentangle Bi-SLI from Bi-TD by tapping specific linguistic and executive
function skills. Part of the conference will be specifically devoted to
results on LITMUS tasks. In addition to oral presentations, Bi-SLI 2015 will
include a poster session.

Call for Papers:

One-page anonymous abstracts (Times New Roman, 12, single-spaced) plus an additional page for references, figures, and examples), for oral presentations (20 minutes) and for posters, should be sent (attached to an email including title, authors, and affiliation) to bisli2015 at univ-tours.fr by February 1st 2015.  Notification to authors selected for presentations will be sent out on March 15, 2015.

Abstract Submission Deadline: February 1, 2015
