The South Central Association for Language Learning Technology is accepting proposals through January 31, 2016 for its annual conference. The event will be Friday, April 8 and Saturday, April 9, 2016 on the campus of the University of Houston-Downtown in Houston, Texas. The theme of the conference is "A World of Languages: Crossing Borders and Platforms."
In addition to welcoming proposals for presentation sessions, workshop sessions, panel discussions, and product demonstrations, we've added a new session type this year - 10-minute "technology test drive" sessions where multiple presenters share a quick tech tip in 10 minutes and attendees of the session change tables to hear all presenters. Think of it as "speed dating" for language technology!
Registration (forthcoming) will be $25 for one day, $50 for both days. SOCALLT welcomes presentations and attendance by K-12 ASL, ESOL and world language instructors, college/university language faculty, language lab/center staff, and industry representatives from a 6-state service area including Arkansas, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
