Dear colleagues, it is with great enthusiasm that we welcome all participants to the SignWriting 2024 Symposium. The symposium will be held from July 15 to 18, 2024. This event represents a significant milestone in the continued evolution and dissemination of SignWriting, a Visually intuitive and powerful writing system for sign languages ​​around the world.

Registration will be open until June 1, 2024, videos and slides must be sent by June 15, 2024.

SignWriting turns 50 in 2024! Incredible! Valerie and her work are a worldwide treasure! Therefore, to celebrate, we decided to hold another SignWriting Symposium. We have a new format this year. Instead of trying to present live, participants are invited to submit their presentation videos in advance. For each day of the symposium, Valerie Sutton and Steve Slevinski will present the day's videos and then make those videos public. Community comments and questions will also be read and responded to.

The SignWriting 2024 Symposium is structured into 4 categories, which will be addressed and distributed throughout each day of the event, as follows:

• Education – July 15th;

• Literature – July 16th;

• Research – July 17th;

• Programs - July 18th.

At this symposium, we bring together researchers, educators, linguists, education professionals, members of the deaf community, and other interested parties to explore the latest innovations, advancements, and practical applications of SignWriting. The event provides a unique platform for exchanging ideas, collaborating and discussing how we can improve and expand the use of SignWriting in a variety of areas.

Over the 4 days of the event, we will have the privilege of attending presentations from renowned experts, participating in interactive workshops and contributing our own experiences and insights. From education and research to translation, accessibility and technology, SignWriting continues to play a crucial role in promoting inclusion and empowering deaf communities around the world.

This symposium represents a unique opportunity to strengthen ties, establish partnerships and inspire new initiatives that drive the continued development of SignWriting. We look forward to exploring new perspectives, tackling challenges, and celebrating the achievements that shape the future of this revolutionary writing system.


On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all participants, speakers, sponsors and collaborators for making this event possible. May the SignWriting Symposium 2024 be an enriching and motivating experience for all of us. We invite you to dive into this exciting journey of learning, discovery and collaboration. May the days ahead be filled with inspiration, meaningful connections, and continued progress toward a more inclusive and accessible future for all.
