Meeting Description: The 7th International Conference of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF7), to be held at DEREE- The American College of Greece,
Athens, on September 4-6, 2014, follows the highly successful first six conferences in the series, which were held in Helsinki (2008),
Southampton (2009), Vienna (2010), Hong Kong (2011), Istanbul (2012), and Rome (2013).

ELF has now established itself as a major and expanding field of academic research. Its interconnections with pedagogy and a host of
other disciplines are being currently discussed, acknowledged, and investigated. Targeting English language educators who work with
English language users from diverse educational and cultural backgrounds in a wide variety of settings, ELF can uniquely be
interconnected with issues affecting and related to identity, language policy-making, intercultural awareness, technology, and language
use at all levels facilitating human communications globally.

ELF7 seeks to explore these interfaces of ELF with pedagogy and other disciplines in the interest of the advancement of the field. In
this context, the ELF7 committee members invite participants to contribute to this conference by submitting their work, reporting on
current ELF research and/or participating in constructive ELF discussions on a variety of issues that would undoubtedly lead to
maintaining ELF interest, increasing ELF insight, and furthering ELF research.
