Meeting Description:

The UME Conference (2015) focuses on aspects of Language Assessment in a Globalising World:

- The assessment of different actors whose linguistic functioning in a multiplicity of urban spaces is being subjected to evaluation
- The assessment by different stakeholders of the multilingual realities in a multiplicity of urban spaces

Call for Papers:

The UME Organising Committee welcomes papers related to the conference theme 'Language Assessment in a Globalising World'. The official conference language will be English. Two categories of proposal will be considered: (i) individual papers, (ii) thematic panels.

The theme of the second UME conference is Language Assessment in a Globalising World. The increased linguistic diversity worldwide is assessed in many different ways. Moreover, assessment is practiced in different sectors of society including a variety of educational settings, the workplace, integration trajectories, etc.

Each author may submit one individual abstract and one co-authored abstract. Abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by the UME Scientific Committee and will be evaluated in terms of their relevance to the theme of the conference and/or their theoretical background and research design.

Individual Papers:

Papers report original work; either completed research which has given rise to substantial results, or the development of significant new methodologies, or offer rigorous theoretical, speculative or critical discussion. Individual papers will be allocated 25 minutes (20 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for questions).

Important Dates:

Deadline submission papers: 1 September 2014
Deadline acceptance papers: 8 November 2014
Registration: from 1 November 2014
