Meeting Description:

The International Conference on Applied Linguistics, with the theme “Current Issues in Applied Linguistics” is organized by International Association of Educational Researchers (ULEAD) and the International Association of Research in Foreign Language Education and Applied Linguistics (UDEAD) in collaboration with Boğaziçi University and Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University. The conference will be held from 8-10 May 2015 in Çanakkale, Turkey.

2015 is the centenary year of the battles which took place during World War I in Çanakkale, also known as the Gallipoli Campaign, in which there were a large number of casualties from many nations, and which is being commemorated with a wide variety of events throughout the year. We hope that this Conference can be regarded as a contribution to these events and to furthering international understanding, especially as language can be considered an important vehicle in its achievement. We believe fostering positive attitudes in this way will help to prevent the recurrence of fighting such as that which took place in Çanakkale, now known as the City of Peace.

The aim of this International Conference is to establish a forum in the Turkish socio-cultural context for discussion of topics that are investigated in the field of applied linguistics, with reference to wider applications in neighbouring countries and elsewhere in the world. Within the compass of the general theme “Current Issues in Applied Linguistics”.
