Meeting Description:

AESLA is pleased to announce the 33rd Conference to be held at the Technical University of Madrid (UPM), 16 to 18 April 2015.

Under the theme title this year: “Multimodal Communication in the 21st Century: Professional and Academic Challenges”, we intend to reflect on the influence of multimodality on knowledge, especially academic and professional, and on meaning construction from a variety of approaches and perspectives.

The conference will host the following keynote speakers:

- Charles Forceville (UVA)
- Francisco Ruiz de Mendoza (Universidad de La Rioja)
- Jorge Díaz-Cintas (University College London)
- Magali Paquot (Lovaine University)
- Joaquín Garrido (UCM)

Call for Papers:

We encourage participants to explore and engage multimodal communication (visual, spoken, gestural, written, three-dimensional and others) from a wide variety of perspectives in applied linguistics: discourse analysis, pragmatics, translation, cognitive linguistics, genre analysis, LSP research, etc. in order to study how the configurations of modes contribute to meaning making.

We welcome proposals related to the areas covered by the ten thematic panels of our association, as well as those which focus on similar subjects related to this year’s theme.

The conference will cover the following areas:

- Language acquisition and learning
- Language teaching and curricular design
- Language for specific purposes
- Language psychology, child language acquisition and psycholinguistics
- Sociolinguistics
- Pragmatics
- Discourse analysis
- Corpus linguistics, computational linguistics and linguistic engineering
- Lexicology and lexicography
- Translation and Interpretation
- Interdisciplinary panels on technologies in linguistic research
