15th World Congress of Applied Linguistics

AILA 2008 invites proposals for presentations that are related to policy, research, and theory in any area of applied linguistics.

20 minutes for presentation; 10 minutes for discussion.

Posters are for one-on-one discussion of work in progress. They are effective for presenting data visually (charts, graphs, or tables). A block of time will be designated when presenters are available to discuss their posters. Specific guidelines for posters will be provided upon acceptance.

Symposia are scheduled for three-hour blocks. Organizers of symposia may divide their time as they choose, but time should be allocated for opening and closing remarks, presentations, panel discussions (if included), and extended audience response. Organizers serve as the liaisons between participants and the program committee.

A note to ReN-convenors: as ReN-symposia have already been screened, ReN-organizers and -contributors do not have to follow the submission procedure. Regular symposia must, however, submit a proposal as specified.


Proposals will be evaluated and the conference will be organized according to the following thematic strands:

    * First Language Acquisition (e.g. Child Language)
    * Second Language Acquisition (e.g. Natural and Instructed L2 Learning, Child and Adult L2 Learning, Problems in Migrant Education)
    * Mother Tongue Education
    * Standard Language Education
    * Foreign Language Teaching and Teacher Education (e.g. Methodology, Syllabus Design, Learning and Teaching Materials)
    * Contrastive Linguistics and Error Analysis
    * Language Evaluation, Assessment and Testing
    * Educational Technology and Language Learning
    * Learner Autonomy in Language Learning
    * Language and Education in Multilingual Settings (e.g. Immersion Education)
    * Written and Visual Literacy
    * Discourse Analysis, Rhetoric and Stylistics
    * Business Communication (e.g. Communication in the Professions, Language for Special Purposes)
    * Translating, Interpreting and Mediation
    * Multimodality in Discourse and Text (e.g. Language and the Media)
    * Sociolinguistics (e.g. Language Contact and Language Change, Language Mixing, Language Planning, Language and Gender)
    * Language Policy
    * Multilingualism and Multiculturalism
    * Intercultural Communication
    * Lexicography and Lexicology
    * Psycholinguistics (e.g. Language Production and Language Comprehension)
    * The potential of linguistic diversity in Europe
    * Other
