Call for abstracts

After a successful first meeting in Lisbon in March 2013, it was decided to make this conference a triennial event. The next meeting of the International Conference on Sign Language Acquisition (ICSLA2015) will therefore be held in Amsterdam on July 1st to July 3rd, 2015: three full days of presentations. The conference languages will be English and International Sign.

The meeting will cover all linguistic aspects of first and second sign language acquisition and include bilingual/bimodal acquisition, atypical populations, sociolinguistic aspects including emergence, diagnostic instruments, methodology and archiving, processing, and literacy in a sign language. There will be both signed or spoken plenary presentations as well as poster sessions. There will be no parallel sessions. Poster sessions form an important part of the conference and provide an opportunity to show and share data also via laptops.

Those interested in giving a presentation are invited to go to the abstract submission website where they will find instructions for submitting a proposal. All proposals will be internationally reviewed.

The deadline for submissions is 23.59 CET, October 1st, 2014 October 15, 2014. Details of acceptance will be made known by the end of December 2014.
