Meeting Description: The Junior Researcher Meeting allows early career applied linguists to present their research and network in an interactive and informal international environment. ‘Junior Researchers’ include those working on their Master’s and PhD theses, as well as those who have graduated within the last three years. The conference will also be the 15th Spring School of Language Studies, which as a national event has been organized for post-graduate students by the University of Jyväskylä since 1996.

At the conference, each paper session will have designated senior researchers as commentators to guarantee questions and discussion. The programme will also include workshops on various aspects of academic career, such as publishing and seeking funding.

Invited Plenary Speakers:

Dr Judit Kormos, University of Lancaster, Dept of Linguistics and English Language
Dr Sari Sulkunen, University of Jyväskylä, Dept of Languages
Dr Maria Ruohotie-Lyhty, University of Jyväskylä, Dept of Teacher Education

Conference Venue:

Vesala is located some 15 kilometres from Jyväskylä, and transportation will be organized for participants from the airport/bus/railway station.
