EuroSLA30 has been moved to 30.6.-3.7.2021. There will not be a new call for papers, if there are withdrawals of accepted papers, the waiting list will be invoked in order of review scores.

This year, it's a special, anniversary year, double-award to Ros Mitchell and Florence Myles! Both of them have contributed so much to the association in different roles, showing the value of collaboration! Here's to two wonderful scholars and kind, generous and funny people!

In 2019, the DSA went to Marianne Gullberg, long-standing member of the association, past president, and organiser of the 2019 conference. Marianne is best known for her highly original and innovative work on gesture - and for being such a lovely person and great friend!

2018's Distinguished Scholar, Jan Hulstijn, has this little greeting for us - with a bit of help from his granddaughter.

In 2017, it was Mike Sharwood Smith
's turn to receive the DSA. Well, duh - who else has provided so much continuity, so much warmth, so much passion for second-language learning and so many great anecdotes to the organisation? Here he is, the one and only!
