We welcome presentations in French but would be grateful to receive proposals in English as well as French, to assist those who are organizing the program. Given that the conference audiences will be predominantly English-speaking, French-speaking presenters may wish to consider making available outlines or abstracts in English and/or incorporating presenters from both languages in their panels.*

*These instructions have been substituted for earlier ones that appeared here, which were incompatible with the CLSA's and LSA's goals for this conference and commitment to inclusiveness. We regret any offence that was caused.

Everyone attending the meeting is expected to register. Compliance is important for keeping our fees affordable, supporting the organizing entities, and advancing their goals. Only those who register will be included on the official Meeting Program (online and printed), or be allowed to present papers, or attend presentations and other functions. Registrants should wear their meeting badges at all times when at Meeting functions, and satellite events.

You do not have to be a member of LSA or CLSA to participate in the meeting, although we encourage you to join, and will be delighted if you do.

Participants are limited to:  

  1. One participation as a Paper Presenter, Roundtable Participant, Author, or Salon Presenter.
  2. Unlimited appearances as a Chair and/or Discussant on a panel.

Exemptions:  Exempted additional appearances include as a Reader on an Author Meets Reader session, or as a participant on a plenary, a Professional Development or Public Outreach session, or other special event solicited and/or authorized by the Program Committee Chairs.  For all other requests, there will be no exception to the rule.

Being a “non-presenting” paper co-authors does not count as your participation if they do not sit on the session panel and present the paper (Select “non-presenter” when the co-author is added to papers).

It is expected that you will allow your name to be added to the program only in accordance with these limitations.  You will be required to withdraw participations that exceed the limit.
