Meeting URL: 

Linguistic Sub-field: Applied Linguistics, Linguistic Theories

Meeting Description:

All those interested in participating in an exploration of the ways
that integrationist theory is relevant and challenging to language
teaching and learning, in theoretical or sharply practical terms, are
welcome. Equally welcome are contributions from theoreticians or
practitioners of language teaching who wish to test and challenge the
claims and adequacy of integrational linguistic theory 

All papers are plenary and comparatively substantial: no more than six
50-minute papers, each followed by 20 minutes of discussion, will be
delivered each day of the conference. We like to keep the conference
small, with all sessions long and plenary. There are likely to be
fewer than 20 speakers across the three days, which also enables us to
generate deep and productive conversations. Relatedly, it is in the
spirit of this arrangement that speakers attend for all three days of
the conference, if at all possible.
