The TISLR is the world's most important international congress for sign
language studies. The eight previous editions of the congress attracted
researchers who work in various sign languages that have different and
similar linguistic typologies. The studies encompass various areas of
linguistics from formal to applied studies. The congresses have
exhibited a significant development of studies of an increasing number
of sign languages. This growth in research, shared and published through
the editions of TISLR, gives visibility to sign languages from countries
such as Brazil and creates opportunities for comparative analysis. It
has thus become an event that goes beyond borders. The TISLR is a space
for socialization of studies about the world's different sign languages
that seeks explanations for linguistic facts considering the
visual-spatial modality that is specific to these languages. For the
first time, the event will be held outside of the United States and
Europe and will include the participation of researchers from throughout
the world, and in particular, Brazilian researchers who have been
studying Brazilian sign language to make this a special edition of the

The theme of the 9th edition of TISLR is the development of sign
language studies from the 1960's until today with a look at lines of
research for the future. The congress title is: Sign Languages: spinning
and unraveling the past, present and future. There will be presentations
from the scholars who conducted the first sign language studies, as well
as researchers who are indicating new directions for study. Giving
continuity to previous editions, interlinguistic studies will be on the
agenda, because they contribute to a delineation of the linguistic
universals of the visual-spatial modality in relation to the
oral-auditory modality.



Hello Valerie,

I am waiting for answer of TISLR Organizing Committee. Perhapps Fernando
Capovilla can talk about becouse he is member of Scientif Committee. I
