We invite abstracts for presentations of original work (not previously published or presented elsewhere) on practical or theoretical topics in Japanese Pedagogy (either college or pre-college level), Japanese Linguistics, Japanese Literature, or related fields. Abstracts selected for presentation will be allotted 23 minutes at the conference for the body of the presentation, with an additional 7 minutes for questions and discussion.

Abstracts will be accepted either in English or Japanese, but the language of the abstract should be the same as the language used in the presentation. Abstracts should be as specific as possible, outlining any argument to be made, describing any results or techniques to be presented, and indicating why the work is significant. One extra page of data and/or references may be appended to the abstract if necessary. Presentations by multiple authors will be accepted. The abstract should be submitted as an attachment (PDF format preferred) by email along with the information in (2).

                (2) The body of the EMAIL should include the name(s) of the author(s) (Japanese names in both Romanized and Japanese script), affiliation, address, phone number, email address, title of presentation (Japanese presentations in both Japanese and English translation), and one of the following designations of the category of the presentation: "pedagogy (pre-college)," "pedagogy (college)," "linguistics," “literature,” or "other."  In the subject line of the email please indicate "JLTANE 31."
