・Addendum: Summary of election procedures
The election process will be conducted as follows:
First, we will receive nominations of candidates from the general
membership (deadline: July 8, 2022). Based on these nominations, the
Elections Committee will prepare a list of candidates and create a
ballot. This ballot, along with the voting guidelines, will be sent to
the general membership via email (approximately mid-July). After this,
JSLS full members should access the webpage address provided in the
guidelines, marking the candidates they would like to vote for, and “
send” their votes in via email. By doing so, votes will be sent
indirectly to the Elections Committee. At this time, it will also be
possible to vote for JSLS full members who are not listed on the ballot.
Votes will be tallied and confirmed by the Elections Committee, and the
candidates (for the positions of chairperson, vice-chairperson, Steering
Committee members, and internal auditor, respectively) with the largest
number of valid votes will be elected, until all positions are filled.

・Guidelines for the Nomination of Candidates
As mentioned in the public announcement regarding elections, we are
asking the general membership to submit nominations. The letter of
nomination (any format acceptable) should include the following
information, as stated in Article 4 of the Detailed Rules regarding the
election of officers of the Japanese Society for Language Sciences:
1. The position you would like to nominate the person for (i.e.,
Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, Steering Committee member, Internal
Auditor)
2. The name of the nominee
3. Date
4. A letter of acceptance from the nominee (must be a JSLS full member)
and the signature of at least one JSLS full member supporting the
nomination
5. Current affiliation, brief CV, field of specialization (or research
topics) of the nominee
6. Short statement giving reasons supporting nomination (Each full
member can nominate one person for the chairperson and vice-chairperson
respectively).

You cannot surpass 23 nominations for the Steering Committee positions.
Furthermore, it is possible for the same person to run for chairperson,
vice-chairperson, the Steering Committee, and Internal auditor at the
same time. In this case, if the person is elected to more than one
position, his or her final position will be the highest position of
those he or she is elected for.

Please send letters of nomination to the address listed below, in an
envelope marked “Letter of nomination enclosed” via postal mail (Letters
of nomination sent via fax or email will not be accepted):

Takaaki Suzuki
English Dept. Faculty of Foreign Studies,
Kyoto Sangyo University
Motoyama, Kamigamo, Kita-ku, Kyoto, 603-8555, Japan

本ワークショップでは,(一般化)線形混合効果モデル[(G)LMM]によるデータ分析の入門的・実践的なチュートリアルを行ないます。従来広く使われてきた分散分析などにはない利点があることから,近年の心理言語学研究では,データ分析に (G)LMM が用いられる場合が多いです。しかし,その分析手順の煩雑さもあり,独学で (G)LMM を習得することに困難を感じる方も多いのではないかと想像します。
 そこで,本ワークショップでは,これまで (G)LMM に触れたことがない人でも,その基本概念を理解し,基本的な分析を一人で行なえるようになることを目標とし,入門的かつ実践的なチュートリアルを行ないます。また,本ワークショップは,単なる一方向の講義だけでなく,参加者の方が実際に (G)LMM を使って分析する際に困っている点にお答えする形での質疑応答セッションも含む予定です。

Cancellation of JSLS2020

Feb. 25, 2020

Cancellation of the 22nd Annual International Conference of the Japanese Society for Language Sciences (JSLS2020)

Harumi Kobayashi, Chairperson of JSLS
Manami Sato, Chairperson of JSLS2020

The 22nd Annual International Conference of the Japanese Society for Language Sciences (JSLS2020) which was scheduled for May 30-31, 2020 has been cancelled, due to recent concerns regarding the Coronavirus outbreak in Japan. As it is impossible for us to guarantee the health and safety of our conference participants, we have had to make this difficult decision.

Next year’s conference (JSLS2021) will be held at Okinawa International University (Dr. Manami Sato, JSLS2021 Conference Chairperson). Further details will be announced as soon as they become available.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who submitted abstracts to JSLS2020. Due to the cancellation of the conference, we will not be sending out review results regarding acceptance/rejection of abstracts. We hope that you will consider resubmitting your abstracts to next year’s conference.

Furthermore, we would like to announce that Studies in Language Sciences (SLS), the official journal of JSLS (Editor: Kaoru Horie) has decided to add a new section in the journal for short research papers (maximum length: English- 2500 words; Japanese- 6000 characters) in addition to the regular full research paper (maximum length: English 8000 words; Japanese 18,000 characters). We would like to encourage researchers who submitted abstracts to JSLS2020 to consider submitting short research papers or full research papers to SLS. Others are also welcome to submit. Details regarding this new section of SLS will be made available shortly.
