Conference: The 7th International Conference on Language Documentation & Conservation (ICLDC)

Deadline: August 1; September 30, 2020

Recognizing Relationships
The 7th International Conference on Language Documentation & Conservation (ICLDC)
University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa
March 4-7, 2021

The Executive Committee of the 7th International Conference on Language Documentation & Conservation (ICLDC 7) has put together this FAQ to address questions that we have received concerning our Call for Workshops and Talk Story sessions (deadline August 1, 2020) and our General Session Call for Papers (deadline September 30, 2020) as well as questions regarding Registration fees. The Executive Committee will continue to update this FAQ and our website as more information becomes available. 

Frequently Asked Questions for ICLDC 7

  1. What is the schedule for ICLDC 7 going to be like? How will ICLDC 7 accommodate presenters and participants from different time zones?

The ICLDC Executive Committee aims to make the conference as accessible as possible to as many different people as possible. So, we are planning to have a staggered schedule with two blocks each day of the conference. That is, we will hold a morning block in Hawai‘i, which will be convenient for participants from the Americas, Europe, Africa, and potentially Australia, and an evening block in Hawai‘i, which will be convenient for Asia, Australia, Europe, and Africa. While this schedule provides additional challenges for the conference organizers, we hope that it will encourage broad international participation. We feel that holding ICLDC7 virtually is an opportunity for many people to present and attend the conference. We do not want the schedule to prevent anyone from attending.
