Conference Objectives and Theme:
The ongoing process of globalization has not only led to a rapid expansion of

English as a second or foreign language. In conjunction with these issues have

6. Developing English learning
7. Theme-based English instruction
8. Action studies in English instruction
9. Occidental children's literature and English instruction
10. Occidental children's literature and cultural awareness
11. Digital English learning
12. Digital English courseware assessment
13. Adapted English placement testing and evaluation
14. Language and cultural instruction
15. Literature and cultural instruction
16. Literature and social instruction
17. Ecological protection and literature instruction
18. Colonialism and globalization in literature
Many other questions will be referred to in the conference in the coming year.
The theme of this conference was chosen to generate further discussion and
academic debate on the above issues. In particular, presenters and participants
are requested to carefully examine how globalization will continue influencing
the three fields of Language Teaching, Linguistics, and Literature in EFL
contexts. It is hoped that presenters will make suggestions on how language
teachers, and especially graduate students can participate in further research
that will lead to suggested resolution to some questions.
Submitters of abstracts will be invited for a 20-minute presentation (followed
by a 10-minute discussion). We welcome relevant studies relevant to the
conference theme or any topic related to or integrating the three areas,
Teaching of Languages, Linguistics, and Literature. Please send your full paper

We invite papers on any aspect of Greek linguistics.

The attachment must be in one of the following file formats:
postscript (ps), pdf, ascii.
Send Microsoft Word or any other proprietary document file format (word-perfect
etc...) we'll just ignore them.
Include ALL fonts in pdf documents.
Include your Name, Affiliation, and Title of the paper, in the body of the email.
Languages of the Conference.
Papers may be in English or Greek (we are, unfortunately, unable to deal with
other languages since we don't speak that many and it would be unfair to limit
the conference languages to those spoken by the organisers.)
One important thing:
Do not assume that we are geared up with all Greek fonts etc... It is perfectly
possible that we will be unable to read your abstract if it contains fancy fonts
etc. hence the importance of sending documents in PS/PDF.
In this edition the conference will also include a number of special thematic
sessions. These sessions will include a number of talks addressing a single
theme. The abstracts for these sessions must be submitted en block by the
organiser. Prospective organisers of special sessions should contact the
organising committee as soon as possible.
More information will soon appear on the conference's website.
