International Conference on Language Documentation & Conservation
of Hawai‘i at Mānoa**March 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: General Session proposals (papers & posters – deadline:

also welcome abstracts on other subjects in language documentation and

   - Archiving and mobilizing language materials
   - Ethical issues
   - Indigenous language education
   - Indigenous sign languages
   - Language and its relation to health and well being
   - Language planning

   - Topics in areal language documentation
   - Training and capacity building in language work
   - Other

*Presentation formats*

*Papers*: To allow for as many presentations as possible, we have decided
that all 20-minute paper presentations will be *pre-recorded and uploaded *to
a platform (to be announced) a few weeks before the beginning of the
conference. Conference participants will then have an opportunity to watch
presentations before the beginning of the conference. During the conference
itself, each paper presentation will be given scheduled time for questions
and discussion synchronously over Zoom (details of the discussion period
will be announced in October 2020). We are also exploring different ways of
encouraging interaction asynchronously (e.g., by posting comments and
questions) or synchronously throughout the conference.

*Posters*: To allow for as many poster presentations as possible, posters
will be uploaded as a PDF a few weeks prior to the beginning of the
conference. Poster presenters will have the option of uploading an
accompanying 10 minute audio/video recording walking participants through
the poster.  Poster presenters will also have the opportunity to interact
with participants at a scheduled time during the conference.

All paper and poster presentations will be archived in ScholarSpace, the
University of Hawaiʻi Repository, for continued viewing after the end of
the ICLDC.

*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.

*Proposal submission*

   - *Abstracts* should describe the content of the proposed paper or
   poster and clearly address the proposed topic’s actual or potential social
   impacts, outcomes or implications (400 word limit, not including
   - *Language: *Abstracts should be submitted in English, but
   presentations can be in any language. We particularly welcome
   presentations in languages of the region discussed.
   - *Most Impactful Paper Awards:* Awards for Most Impactful Paper will be
   given to the three best abstracts by (i) students and/or (ii) members of an
   underrepresented language community who are actively working to document
   their heritage language and are not employed by a college or university.
   If you or one of your co-presenters is eligible, go ahead and mark yourself
   as eligible accordingly. The Award will come with an honorarium of US$200,
   supported by the National Science Foundation. If your proposal receives an
   Award, we will contact you to discuss which eligible person(s) will receive
   the honorarium. NOTE: Please be advised that the honoraria are considered
   taxable income under U.S. tax laws. U.S. citizens and residents can expect
   to receive a 1099 form to figure into their annual tax return for 2021.
   Non-U.S. citizens/residents will have the applicable taxable amount
   (typically 30%) deducted from the scholarship check prior to receipt.
