The ER SIG participates in or holds 3 regular annual events.
The Annual Extensive Reading Seminar (link goes to 2020 Seminar)
The ER SIG welcomes proposals for hosting future ER Seminars.
In very general terms, we look for the following things in a site. We would like a venue that is available to us on a Sunday or possibly both Saturday and Sunday, and that includes a dozen or more rooms available for presentations and at least one large meeting hall for plenary sessions and one large room or area suitable for materials exhibitors. It would be nice to have easy access by public transportation, hotels in the area, a good location for a reception there or nearby, and internet connectivity for presenters and participants. We need a site chair who is at the hosting institution and if there are two or more other local people willing to take on roles on the seminar committee it may help with smoothly planning and running the event.
If you are potentially interested in hosting the seminar, please contact er(at)jalt(dot)org for more information.
PanSIG 2021 will take place May 15-16, 2021 in Mishima, Shizuoka Prefecture. Proposals for PanSIG 2021 must be submitted by February 1st, 2021 at pansig2021.eventzil.la. Notifications of final acceptance of proposals will be sent via email in March, 2021. Please note that this event is currently planned as a hybrid event (partially online). Also, the PanSIG committee is monitoring the Coronavirus situation closely, and is prepared to move the conference entirely online if needed.
