Meeting Description:

22nd International Conference on Foreign / Second Language Acquisition
Szczyrk, Poland, 27-29 May 2010; Aspects of Culture in Second Language
Acquisition and Foreign Language Learning

The Institute of English at the University of Silesia is pleased to announce the
22nd International Conference on Foreign and Second Language Acquisition.
Traditionally, this conference focuses on research in second language
acquisition and foreign language learning, concentrating each year on different
aspects of the research field. The leading theme of the 2010 conference is
Aspects of Culture in Second Language Acquisition and Foreign Language Learning.

It seems that most of us believe that second or foreign language instruction
must involve some degree of learning about the culture of the target language
community. Nevertheless, there are also many people who are uncertain about what
cultural issues to include in the curriculum or how to integrate them with the
language material. There are also the voices of those in whose opinion the
cultural issues do not play such an important role.

Call for Papers

Proposals for papers reporting on research related to the cultural perspective,
or presenting more theoretical considerations regarding the issue, are welcome
for presentation at the conference. We will also accept selected proposals in
other areas of SLA research in addition to the leading theme. All those wishing
to contribute papers or just to attend presentations are welcome to participate
in the conference.

The event will be held in Szczyrk, a resort town in the Beskid Mountains of
Southern Poland, from 27th to 29th May 2010 (arrival on Wednesday, 26th May).
The conference venue will be Hotel Zacisze. Most of the conference participants
will be accommodated there, but in the situation of all the available rooms
being booked, places will be secured in other hotels close to the conference
venue. The details concerning the conference fee and our plenary speakers, will
be announced in the second circular soon.

Paper abstracts should be sent before 15 February 2010 to
szczyrkconferenceop.pl . The registration form, including the paper abstract,
should be sent as an attachment to an e-mail. Additionally, to facilitate the
procedure of building the conference database, all participants are kindly asked
to type their entry details into an Excel document posted with the conference
announcement (Baza2010.xls), filling in all the cells in the second row below
the red headings, and send it back as a separate attachment, changing its name
to SurnameName.xls (in Excel 2003 format)
