assessment after a decade, and on topics related to collaborative language
documentation and conservation which may include:
Issues in building language documentation
in collaborative teams
for mobilization of language data
Technology in documentation – methods
Topics in areal language documentation

The deadline for proposal submissions (September 30, 2008) has already passed. We are no longer accepting any abstracts.
Selected papers from the conference will be invited to submit to the
journal Language Documentation & Conservation for publication.

20 minutes with 10 minutes of question time.
Posters will be on display throughout the conference. Poster presentations will run during
the lunch breaks.
