Meeting Description:

Language Testing Forum 2014
Conference theme: Language Testing: Engaging multi-disciplinary perspectives
Date: Friday 21 November – Sunday 23 November, 2014
Venue: University of Southampton, UK, SO17 1BF

Language testing and processes of language test validation and evaluation draw on theoretical perspectives from fields such as Applied Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition. The approach informs test design and format, and test data analysis. This conference is an opportunity for language testers and language educators to engage with new developments in these fields, and other multi-disciplinary perspectives which can help us meet emerging and future challenges.

Call for Papers:

We invite submissions to contribute to the conference theme in the form of paper or poster. The deadline for abstract submission is 15 August. Notifications will be sent to delegates in the first week of September.

We particularly would like to invite young researchers and PhD students to present their work-in-progress projects on a poster. There will be five free registration fellowships available to graduate students. A statement of interest (max 200 words) should be included with the application.

We are currently in the process of adding online submission information to the conference website (http://www.southampton.ac.uk/ml/news/events/2014/11/21_language_testing_forum.page? ).

Please watch the space for updates. Any queries, please email LTF2014soton.ac.uk
We look forward to welcoming you to Southampton in November!
