I think a conference for polyglots and L2 acquisition is an excellent idea. The organizers could invite
academicians, linguists and organizations involved in the study of languages.

There is no dearth of material on L2 acquisition. Wouldn't a polyglot event rather go for L6...n?

I really like the idea of such a conference (I would consider going to one if it is held somewhere central in Europe). While I can see the need for sponsorship as mentioned by Duke100782, I would nevertheless warn against the danger of turning such a conference into a commercial event.

Yep, but for me, preferably central to northern Europe.

I probably won't be able to make the Europe one. Not enough money saved yet, but I'll plan for November US one!
Excellent idea!

So who's planning to go to the conference?

I haven't heard much about it for a while, but I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks, but I've already signed up. I haven't heard anything since I signed up about a month ago though.

I have just signed up. I suppose there will be more information about the exact address and program and things like that later, but I do recognize the problems the organizers are facing with an event type that hasn't been tried out yet (except to some extent in the meet-ups organized by the 'Polyglot Club' and Sprachprofi's crocodile sessions) - for instance the number of participants can't be much more than a guess right now. But at some point we have to start thinking about hotel and flight reservations and things like that. I can't see much of a status on the homepage for the event, but would it be possible to get a briefing on the situation right now from the organiszers, in spite of all the uncertainty?
