Immersion and dual language education continue to evolve as highly effective program models for launching students on the road to bi-­‐and multilingualism and intercultural competence. This conference welcomes proposals on school-­‐based immersion, bilingual, and dual language programs that involve a minimum of 50% subject-­‐matter schooling through a second, foreign, heritage, or indigenous language at the preschool and elementary levels (PreK–5/6). Secondary or post-­‐secondary continuation programs for elementary immersion/dual language graduates include a minimum of two subject courses in the immersion language.

Program models include:

    One-­‐Way Second/Foreign Language Immersion
    Co-­‐Official/Regional Language Immersion
    Two-­‐Way Bilingual Immersion
    One-­‐Way Developmental Bilingual Education
    Indigenous Language Immersion

While each model targets distinct sociocultural contexts and educational needs, all embrace language, literacy, and culture development through subject-­‐matter learning with a high degree of language intensity. The Sixth International Conference on Immersion and Dual Language Education will bring these models together to engage in research-­‐informed dialogue and professional exchange across languages and instructional contexts.

Proposal Submission Deadline: February 1, 2016 Proposals are invited for paper/best practice sessions, discussion sessions, laptop poster sessions, and symposia related to four conference strands:

Strand 1: Immersion Pedagogy and Assessment

Strand 2: Culture, Identity, and Community

Strand 3: Program Design and Evaluation, Leadership, and Educator Development

Strand 4: Policy, Advocacy, and Communications
