The theme of the 2011 symposium is 'Methodologies in SLA'. Submissions may address the conference theme or any area related to current and future trends in SLA research including, but not limited to: generative, psycholinguistic, and social approaches, technology in language teaching, and implications of SLA research for instruction.
