Meeting Description:

The IV International Conference on Applied Linguistics to Language Teaching: Towards Plurilingualism offers an opportunity for researchers and teachers, both experts and novices, to share the results of their studies and teaching experiences.

Developing a multilingual competence of citizens is a lifelong learning task, integrating the efforts of the educational system, the scientific community, the experts in language learning and its teaching, the certifying institutions, as well as the personal motivation and effort of each individual. The interdisciplinary nature of applied linguistics can address the multiple challenges of multilingualism.

The languages present in the Conference are English, French, German and Spanish, with a specific panel for each of them, composed of the following sections: oral presentations, workshops, posters and junior research projects.

In this fourth edition of the International Conference we are proud to receive Arabic and Galician as guest languages. Representatives of the six linguistic communities, will deliver round table discussions on the challenges of the multilingual society and about different aspects of the assessment of communicative language competences in foreign languages. The programme is rounded off with a series of plenary talks given by international leading experts in the most recent aspects of the Conference topics. Those papers selected in a blind peer review process by a group of anonymous experts will be published in a monograph of a scientific nature.

Call for Papers:

Presentation, workshop and poster proposals will be examined and, as appropriate, approved for presentation by two or more members of the Scientific Committee. All proposals must be sent using the form available at the Conference website, indicating the type of contribution (presentation, workshop or poster) and the panel (ESL, DaF, FLe, etc.).
