Conference Organizing Resources

CARLA's graduate student professional development project, which focuses on academic conferences and publishing, continues the center's long history of supporting teachers building careers in foreign language education. This page has resources that help developing scholars implement a feasible timeline for organizing a conference, publishing a proceedings, and soliciting and reviewing conference abstracts and proceedings manuscripts. There are also links to the published proceedings from the SLA Graduate Student Symposium, a collaboration among the University of Iowa, the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
