Meeting Description: The conference theme for LSP2017 is ''Interdisciplinary knowledge-making: challenges for LSP research''.

The complexity of many of today’s societal challenges calls for new methodological approaches and research questions within LSP/professional discourse studies. We therefore believe that an LSP conference dedicated to interdisciplinary knowledge-making is a timely undertaking.

The European Symposium on Language for Specific Purposes has for four decades been a key venue for LSP research and an important meeting ground for researchers and practitioners from around the world. LSP2017 offers the possibility to discuss the challenges and opportunities of LSP with an international audience and learn about cutting edge research within a range of topics such as domain-specific language, specialized translation, professional communication within businesses, organisations and academia, terminology and related technology, corpus studies, language policies and related socio-cultural issues.
