The SIGN7 Conference will be held at Zhongzhou University, China dating from the 12th-15th October 2014.
As well as the main sessions at SIGN7, there will be space for fringe meetings, discussions and training sessions. We welcome the submission of ideas for these, with a short proposal of your idea for either:
A meeting to exchange experience on a certain topic in a smaller setting. It is an opportunity to discuss your draft or project with a group of sign language linguists and researchers.
The conference series began as a workshop called Cross-linguistic Sign Language Research (CLSLR) in 2006 at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. This was repeated in Nijmegen in 2007 and in Preston, UK, in 2008 where the series was later renamed SIGN. With three previous conferences already completed the next conference was named 'SIGN4' and for the first time was held outside Europe, in India in 2009.
