Call for papers: AAAL conference 2016, Orlando

The conference run by the American Association of Applied Linguistics will take place in Orlando, Florida from 9-12 April, 2016. There was a lot of talk about both this and the TESOL Convention at IATEFL this year, and I got the impression that this one attracts mainly researchers whereas the TESOL convention attracts mainly practitioners. Anyhow here is some information and a link to their website and the call for proposals if you are interested.
