Recognizing RelationshipsThe 7th International Conference on Language
Documentation & Conservation (ICLDC)University of Hawai‘i at MānoaMarch
4-7, 2021

*COVID-19 Statement* Due to COVID-19, ICLDC 2021 will be held virtually.
The ICLDC 7 organizers are excited about this year’s theme, and the
possibilities for broad international discussion that an online conference
can offer. We are currently investigating what technologies we will use and
how the conference will take shape and how we can accommodate time zone
differences for presenters, as well as family and work obligations. We look
forward to your participation. Please “join” us!

ICLDC 2021: Workshop and Talk Story proposals
(deadline: August 1, 2020)

Following a format introduced at the ICLDC 2017, we are including multiple
90-minute blocks on each day of the conference to be dedicated to two
alternative conference activities: Talk Story Sessions and Workshops.

*Presentation formats*

*Talk Story Sessions: *Introduced at ICLDC 2017 in response to participant
feedback, ICLDC 2021 will again offer Talk Story sessions. These
discussions will be led by an expert discussant and limited to 20-30
attendees per session. Each Talk Story will be repeated on different days
of the conference, allowing ample opportunity for conference attendees to
participate in the Talk Story Sessions of their choice. Talk Story sessions
are meant to be fully interactive for participants, rather than a
one-directional presentation of information. This format is particularly
appropriate for discussing relationships, how we foster them, maintain
them, and better understand their role in language reclamation and language

*Workshops*: We also welcome proposals for Workshops on topics broadly
relating to the conference theme. Each 90-minute workshop will be repeated
on different days of the conference, allowing multiple opportunities for
interested attendees to participate. Workshops will accommodate a larger
number of participants and are intended to be more presentational and
instructional in style than the Talk Story sessions.

*How to prepare your abstract proposal*


   *Content:* Proposals should describe the content of your presentation,
   including the intended audience and how it relates to the conference
   themes. Successful abstracts will clearly address the proposed topic’s
   actual or potential social impacts, outcomes or implications.

   *Abstract Length:* Please limit your proposal to 400 words, not
   including references.
   - *Anonymity:* To facilitate blind peer review, please do not include
   your name or affiliation in your abstract or filename. Your proposal should
   only include your presentation title, abstract, and list of references (if
   applicable). If you are including references/citations to your own work in
   your abstract, please be sure to replace your name(s) with “Author.” For
   example, if you are Ted Smith and you wrote an article in 2009, which you
   are citing in your file (i.e., Smith (2009) ), you would change it to
   “Author (2009).” If you are including a list of references at the end, also
   make sure to anonymize any of your publications similarly as well.
   - *Format:* Please submit your abstract as a PDF file.
   - *50-word summary:* Please also prepare a 50-word summary of your
   abstract for inclusion in the conference program. This will be entered in a
   separate field in the submission form, not in your abstract PDF file.

*NSF support details*

Thanks to generous support from the US National Science Foundation Dynamic
Language Infrastructure – NEH Documenting Endangered Languages (DLI-DEL),
we are able to offer honoraria up to US $600 (subject to taxation) for each
selected Workshop and Talk Story Session. In the event that a Workshop or
Talk Story Session is jointly presented by more than one individual, the
presenter team will inform the ICLDC Executive Committee how to divide the
award across the presenters.

As a condition of acceptance, Workshop and Talk Story Session presenters
must acknowledge support of the National Science Foundation in their
presentations and future iterations of their research.

*Proposal submission*


   *Abstracts* should describe the content of the proposed Workshop or Talk
   Story, indicating how it relates to the conference theme. Successful
   abstracts will clearly address the proposed topic’s actual or potential
   social impacts, outcomes or implications. Abstracts should be no more than
   400 words in length, not including references.

   Talk Story Session and Workshop presenters will have access to the
   ICLDC’s Zoom Meeting or Webinar account features, and plenty of technical
   support and training from our Student Steering Committee, if necessary. *In
   your abstract, *please address the feasibility of holding your Talk
   Story Session or Workshop in an online, virtual format.

   *Biography:* Please include a 100-word biography describing the
   qualifications of each presenter.
   - *Language:* Abstracts should be submitted in English, but
   presentations can be in any language. We particularly welcome presentations
   in languages of the region discussed.
   - Proposals for the NSF-sponsored Workshops and Talk Story Sessions
   are *due by August 1, 2020*, with notification of acceptance by
   September 1, 2020. Proposals
