Meeting Description:

The research institute IULMA at the University of Alicante organizes the 34th International Conference of the Spanish Association of Applied Linguistics (AESLA), to be held from 14 to April 16 2016, which is called Professional and Academic Discourse: an Interdisciplinary Perspective. In this edition, the Conference will focus on the relationship between the different streams of professional and academic discourse in order to analyse the various proposals that in certain areas and perspectives (humanities, science, society, etc.), converge in a general framework that can be labelled ''professional and academic discourse.'' In this sense, the Conference will deepen the links between languages and professions, characterized by specific linguistic and discursive structures and, in most cases, restricted to small groups of users.

The general objectives are:

- To present developments in the field of professional and academic languages that are being made within AESLA.
- To discuss solutions to current problems generated by the specificity of professional and academic languages, especially problems regarding communication and social and technological development.
- To linking research in specialized languages with productive and business areas of society.
- To relate advances in research in specialized languages to new technologies of communication.
- To develop models for the application of advances in the knowledge of professional and academic languages in the educational, social and technical areas.
