Meeting Description:

The 2012 ACTA International Conference will be convened at the world class Cairns Convention Centre from 2-5 July 2012, and we have negotiated a variety of accommodation packages to suit our delegates’ needs. Proceedings will open with a pre-conference Pronunciation Symposium on Monday 2 July. We are thrilled to host leading national and international educators and researchers in the field to this symposium, and the conference proper will pick up on some of the key issues arising from the colloquium and plenary sessions. The full program gets under way on Tuesday 3 July with a broad range of strands and exciting keynote presentations, workshops and poster sessions relevant to ESL, EFL and Indigenous educators at all levels and across all sectors. We have a special treat in store for delegates attending the conference dinner on the Wednesday night, and you might also like to book a seat for an exclusive hosted breakfast with some of our keynote and plenary speakers before the final day’s sessions kick off on Thursday.

We are pleased to welcome Dr Tove Skutnabb-Kangas, Professor Robert Phillipson, Professor Suresh Canagarajah, Dr Tracey Derwing, Gillian Wigglesworth, Jane Simpson, Juanita Sellwood, Brock Brady and Dorothy Hoddinott as keynote and plenary presenters for our 2012 ACTA Conference in Cairns.
