This is a warm invitation to submit a paper to the 'Autonomy and
Language Learning: Maintaining Control' conference, which will be held
in Hong Kong and Hangzhou from 14-18 June 2004.

This conference echoes the 'Autonomy and Language Learning' conference
we held in 1994, and the 1996 publication that followed it, 'Taking
Control: Autonomy in Language Learning'.

One of the main aims of this conference is to highlight what has (and
has not) been achieved in the field of learner autonomy in language
learning in the last 10 years.

Participants will be addressing the topic of autonomy and language
learning from many different angles. The conference themes include:

* the rhetoric and practice of learner autonomy in the modern world
* learner autonomy and teacher autonomy
* developing learner autonomy in the classroom (from primary to
tertiary levels)
* self-directed and self-access language learning

This will be a major conference, of interest to teachers and
researchers both in Asia and around the world. The keynote speakers
are: Naoko Aoki, Phil Benson, Leni Dam, Edith Esch, David Little and
Philip Riley. The invited speakers are: Andy Barfield, Sara Cotterall,
Terry Lamb, Lindsay Miller, Marina Mozzon-McPherson, Mike Nix and
Barbara Sinclair.

The five-day, two-site nature of the conference provides a chance for
extended discussion and networking with conference participants.

Your abstract should address the conference topic of
Autonomy and Language Learning and any of its
related themes (further details at
http://lc.ust.hk/~centre/conf2004/confinfo_E.html#themes ). Your
presentation can be given in any of the following formats:

Paper presentation (40 minutes)
Poster presentation
Demonstration (40 minutes)
Workshop (90 minutes)
Colloquium (135 minutes)

Your abstract should be no more than 250 words long, completed on the
conference Abstract Form (available from the website below), and
submitted by 31 December 2003.

Full details of the conference are on the conference website:
http://lc.ust.hk/~centre/conf2004/

Good luck with your abstract, and we hope to see you in June 2004!
