The organizing committee of the JALT Pan-SIG Conference 2010 invites all interested applied linguistic researchers to submit presentation proposals for the 9th Annual Pan-SIG Conference, which will be held on Saturday and Sunday, May 22 and 23, 2010 at Osaka Gakuin University.

Research in any area of applied linguistics will be welcome. Two types of proposals will be considered:

1. Reports on completed research
2. Works in progress (including completed research design and/or data collection)

Presentations will be 45 minutes in length (including 10 minutes for questions and answers). Preference will be given to those submissions that fit the theme of the conference and/or general interests of the SIG to which the submission is being made.
