You are invited to participate actively in the Convention by giving a presentation, workshop, or multimedia demonstration/workshop. We encourage submissions which deal more with the practical aspect of teaching and which discuss the role of language in developing mature, thinking and independent individuals who learn to connect and communicate with the world around them and who share and support each other and see life as an interactive workshop.
