The theme of this year’s symposium, Centering Language Learners in Evolving Times, draws upon our current context and the importance of looking towards possibilities and opportunities in emerging research. We seek to provide a space for new ideas and ventures in second language scholarship that examine the experiences of language learners broadly conceived. The 2023 SLA Graduate Student Symposium strives to create a forum for sharing scholarship that informs both theory and practice within the field.
We encourage presentations of data-driven studies with a special focus on practical applications, position papers, and critical reviews of literature on emerging issues in second language acquisition and related fields.
Submission deadline: February 17th, 2023
We invite proposals from a variety of areas, including but not limited to the following:

In your submission, you should indicate if you would like to be considered for a paper presentation, a poster presentation, or either. Paper presentations will be allotted 20 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for discussion. Poster presentations will take place in the afternoon of Saturday, April 1, 2023.
Panel Discussion: Implications and Applications of Research
Panel presenters are asked to discuss the applicability of specific research to the broader community of stakeholders rather than report on the methods or findings of an empirical study.
Evaluation of Proposals
All submissions will be blind reviewed for clarity of topic, perspective, and/or method; quality of research; contribution to the field and originality; and relevance to current issues in SLA.
