Call Deadline: 01-Oct-2010

Meeting Description:

The Coalition of Distinguished Language Centers, the only international
organization dedicated to research and application of research in the area
of teaching and achieving native-like foreign-language proficiency, will be
holding its 8th annual symposium at the Westin Baltimore-Washington
Airport Hotel in Linthicum, Maryland December 3-4, 2010.

Call For Papers

Professors, researchers, administrators, and others with experience in
teaching, studying, translation/interpretation, or assessment at the near-
native level of proficiency in any foreign language are invited to submit a
one-page abstract (exclusive of bibliography) on any aspect of language
study at the distinguished level. (For those looking for a definition of
"distinguished" level/ILR Level 4, a description can be found at
www.govtilr.org). There will be several areas of focus: teaching methods
and practices, language learning experiences, research,
translation/interpretation, program development/management, and
assessment (proficiency, diagnostic, dynamic, other). Whole panels may be
suggested and abstracts submitted together, if desired. The working
language of the conference will be English. However, presentations may be
in any language, as long as there are enough presentations in that
language to form a panel. Abstracts should be written in the language in
which they will be presented and should be sent to the CDLC Operations
Director, Boris Shekhtman, via email (sbmysltc.com) or to Dina
Kupchanka (dina_kupchankahotmail.com) no later than October 1, 2010.

Abstracts will be peer-reviewed. Notification of acceptance (or rejection) of
proposals will be made on or about October 15. Following the conference,
presentations will be published in a Proceedings volume.

Updated information about the conference will be posted on the CDLC
website through the opening of the conference:
