2nd Call for Papers:

The International Symposium on Bilingualism (ISB10, isb10.rutgers.edu)
invites proposals for presentations on any area of multilingualism
(including, but not limited to, L1/L2 acquisition, linguistics,
sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, education,
multilingual societies, etc.).

Abstracts for the Main Session:

ISB10 organizers invite proposals regarding original, previously
unpublished research results on bilingualism/ multilingualism. Submitters
should submit an abstract for a 20 minute presentation or for a poster
presented at the main session, or a proposal for a thematic session.
Submissions should be uploaded to EasyChair (

Proposals for Individual Papers or Posters:

- An anonymous abstract (500 words plus 1 page max. for examples and
references). The abstract should include enough details to allow reviewers
to judge the merit of the proposal.

- Abstracts for paper/poster presentations will be double-blind
peer-reviewed. Authors will be asked to specify a format preference (paper
presentation or poster session) at the time the work is submitted.

Only one presentation can be submitted as a first author. One of the
authors must register for the conference in order to assure the
presentation’s place on the program.

In the submission site, indicate which presentation format you would like
your abstract to be considered for. All abstracts are reviewed in the same
manner; selecting 'paper or poster' does not decrease one's chances of
being selected to deliver a spoken presentation.

Proposals for Thematic Sessions:

Thematic sessions consist of 120 minute blocks that will cover a narrowly
defined topic of interest. Proposals should be submitted through EasyChair (
www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=isb10), check the option “THEMATIC
session (group of 3-4 abstracts and proposal submitted by 1 organizer)”

-Individual author information should be submitted in the ''author'' fields

before the proposal is submitted.
