Special-session proposals and nonguaranteed-session proposals will be reviewed by the Program Committee at its meeting in May, and organizers will be informed of the committee’s decision by early June. Please note that all session participants must be MLA members by 7 April or have received a waiver of membership (applications for which are included with the program-copy forms).
