Compared to other social issues, there are very few international conventions and symposiums about languages or translation. I have discovered this one and if anyone wants to be a part of this organization, you can contact to the Durk Gorter. The symposium is supposed to be on 2015 and it will be the 10th one. The details as follow:
The ISB Committee is calling for bids from interested institutions or
individuals to host the International Symposium on Bilingualism – ISB10
in the year 2015. The deadline for the call for bids is March 1, 2012.
ISB is an international forum that welcomes scholars in all disciplines
and fields of research dedicated to bilingualism and multilingualism. Its
main goal is to provide a forum for presenting quality research on
bilingualism/multilingualism from linguistic, psychology, anthropology,
cognitive, sociolinguistic, neurolinguistic and educational perspectives,
and possibly others.
The 2015 Symposium will be the 10th time in ISB’s history. ISBs were
organized since 1997:
– 2015 (To be announced)
