We are pleased to announce that the 1st Silesian Meeting of Young Scholars (SMYS) organised by the Institute of English at the University of Silesia will be held on 18-19 March 2013 in Szczyrk. SMYS Organisers wish to encourage PhD candidates to present their contributions as well as to participate without a paper in the workshops and discussions. With this Conference we would like to promote research projects of young linguists at the beginning of their career as well as to help younger and less experienced scholars in the field with their theses. Therefore, we would like to invite all PhD candidates who share an interest in linguistics and its sub-fields. As the Conference will cover a variety of themes, we hope to attract young researchers investigating the field of applied linguistics, translation studies and psycholinguistics. All those wishing to contribute papers or just to attend workshops are welcome to participate in the Conference.
