Dear Organisers of the Symposium,
I want to contribute a paper on "The Politics of Bilingual Education in
Paksitan" in the 4th International Symposium on Bilingualism. However, as my
university has no funds for such events, I can attend only if air fare,
board and lodging etc is paid on my behalf.
Please see my CV and if you want me to present a paper please tell me to
send you an outline of my paper. I will do so at once.
Should you decide that I should attend kindly keep in mind that I will
arrive at Houston and then catch a flight from there. Moreover, you should
tell me at least three months in advance that I will be invited and all
expenses will be paid because I have to take permission from the Governemnt
of Pakistan on the basis of a written invitation or confirmation.
Thank you.
Yours sincerely,
Tariq Rahman Ph.D
Professor of Linguisitcs and South Asian Studies,
quaid-i-Azam University,

> attrition/forgetting, and bilingualism in school settings.
> Proposals regarding original, previously unpublished research on
> bilingualism are invited in three formats: Colloquia, individual papers,
> and posters.
> Proposals for colloquia. Colloquia are collections of paper presentations
> which relate to a narrowly defined topic of interest, and are offered in
> either 2-hour or 3-hour time blocks. Proposals for colloquia are limited
> 700 words, and should include brief summaries of each of the papers to be
> included, along with paper titles and individual authors' names.
> detail should be provided to allow peer reviewers to judge the scientific
> merit of the proposal. A chair for the session must also be identified. It
> is the responsibility of the person submitting a proposal for a colloquium
> to secure the permission and cooperation of all participants before the

> 2-hour or 3-hour time block is requested. Typically, each paper
> presentation within a colloquium should be scheduled for 30 minutes,
> including time for discussion.
