The 9th International Conference on Third Language Acquisition and Multilingualism will be held at Uppsala University in June 12-14, 2014. We welcome original and previously unpublished research on the acquisition or use of three or more languages. The International Association of Multilingualism was founded in 2004 and thus celebrates its 10th anniversary during the conference in 2014.

Keynote Speakers:

Call for Papers:

We welcome abstracts for individual papers in parallel sessions and thematic symposia. Individual papers will be assigned 30 minutes: 20 minutes for the presentation and 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Thematic symposia will focus on one specific topic, and will bring together key contributions to the topic. They will take place in 2 hour slots (4 papers) in parallel to the other sessions.

Abstracts for individual papers and thematic symposia should be sent in English or in the language of presentation accompanied by an English translation. Please attach your abstract as a word document (max 300 words, excluding title and references, in Times New Roman, 12 pt.) no later than 6 September 2013 to thirdlanguagemoderna.uu.se, and include the following (in this order): name and affiliation of the author(s)/convener(s), email address of the first author/convener, title of the paper, abstract.

An individual may appear as first author only once on the programme, in addition to a possible role as thematic symposium organiser or co-author of another paper.

All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by the scientific committee. Notifications of acceptance will be sent before 15 December 2013.

The language of the conference is predominantly English, but contributions in other languages will also be considered.
