Welcome to the website for Theoretical Issues in Sign Language Research (TISLR) Conference 11.

The Deafness, Cognition and Language (DCAL) Research Centre based in University College London (UCL) are pleased to be hosting this conference in the exciting city of London from 10th to 13th July 2013. UCL is in the heart of Central London, within easy reach of numerous attractions and transport links including Euston and Kings Cross St Pancras stations.
For more information on the location and venue please see ‘Venue Details’.

TISLR 11 invites unpublished papers addressing any aspect of research that is both theoretical and addresses sign languages.
For more information on the programme, speakers and topics covered please see ‘programme’.

We are pleased to have Peter Hauser from Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID) and Lars Wallin from the University of Stockholm as the conference keynote speakers.

The languages of the conference will be English (spoken and via speech-to-text reporting), British Sign Language (BSL) and American Sign Language (ASL). Authors wishing to have interpretation to and from other sign languages will need to bring their own interpreters.

The interpreter coordinator will be more than happy to assist you to ensure good communication throughout the conference.
Please take note of TISLR’s ‘direct communication’ policy that encourages authors to present in sign language
(see ‘interpreters’ for more information).

All of us at DCAL and UCL look forward to seeing you here in London in July 2013!
