WATESOL welcomes proposals from teachers, teacher educators, program administrators, materials and curriculum developers, language assessment experts, technology specialists, graduate students, researchers, and other professionals in fields related to the learning and teaching of English as an additional language.

We are seeking proposals for practice-oriented and research-oriented presentations, graduate student research presentations, poster presentations, electronic village presentations, and workshops as described in greater detail below. The conference will also feature a keynote address, SIG (Special Interest Group) meetings, roundtable discussions, and exhibitors.

Please note: If your proposal involves a product or other resources from an organization that you work for, your proposal falls into the Exhibitor category. Whether that organization is for profit or not for profit, there is a separate proposal submission process from the one described below. With many thanks for your interest in WATESOL, we ask that you please instead contact the WATESOL VPs to complete the exhibitor submission process intended for the wide variety of organizations that exhibit at the conference each year.

Please read the proposal submission guidelines below thoroughly and feel free to contact WATESOL’s Professional Development Co-Chairs at with any questions.
