Meeting Description:

As the largest ELT conference in Korea, presentations cover the spectrum of areas of ELT and related fields of applied linguistics and second language acquisition. The ELT materials exhibition is an important part of the conference. Plenary speakers include Dr. Thomas S. C. Farrell, Dr. Dick Allwright, and Dr. Graham Crookes.

The KOTESOL 2013 International Conference is a forum for educators to share their ideas, innovations, experience, and research findings in English language teaching (ELT). This year, the Conference will be exploring the actual and the desired roles of classroom practice in informing ELT and SLA theory. This is reflected in the conference theme: Exploring the Road Less Traveled: From Practice to Theory.

Call for Papers:

We are planning a conference that will have people returning to their workplace with practical applications, useful experiences, and fresh ideas. We invite proposals for workshops, research reports, demonstrations, colloquia, and poster presentations. We also invite 101 Series proposals. These basic sessions each cover best practices in one ELT area.

Proposals on topics that address the Conference theme will be given preference, but academic proposals from all areas of ELT will be considered. Proposals may come from KOTESOL members and non-members alike. However, all presenters must be members of KOTESOL at the time of the conference.

Presenters may submit multiple proposals, which will undergo blind vetting. However, no more than two proposals will be accepted from any one person, and KOTESOL National Conference 2013 presentations will not be considered. All presenters will be expected to pre-register for the conference and pay all relevant fees during the pre-registration period, including a presenter registration fee.

Closing date for the receipt of proposals: May 31, 2013

All proposals must be submitted via the web-form: http://www.koreatesol.org/content/call-proposals.

Notification concerning proposal acceptance will be made in mid-July.

Direct any Conference Program related inquiries to the Program Committee:


Extended summaries from accepted presentations may be submitted for the Conference program guidebook. Full-length papers for publication in the KOTESOL 2013 Conference Proceedings may be submitted after the conference. More information on these options will be sent to presenters.
