Meeting Description:

Eötvös Loránd University is launching an international conference series with sessions both in English and Hungarian. Our first conference will be held in November 2021.

For the purpose of our conference, we would like to take the meaning of applied linguistics in its broadest sense, and our aim is to present research analysing linguistic/communication/social problems of language use and to offer real solutions via linguistic means from an interdisciplinary perspective. We are inviting scientific papers to be presented at our conference on the theme of socially responsible linguistics. The conference prioritizes less widely known topics of applied linguistics and the research of still unknown (or not widely known) linguistic dilemmas; moreover, it calls for innovative analyses of known problems and the elaboration of solutions. Besides our teacher-researcher colleagues, we are also encouraging applications from PhD students. We are planning to organise thematic sections and workshops/roundtables; moreover, would also like to publish an on-line peer-reviewed collection of papers (with ISBN number).

Our invited keynote speakers are: István Csernicskó, rector, Ferenc Rakoczi II Transcarpathian Hungarian College of Higher Education; Judit Kormos, professor, Lancaster University; Sára Ránki, forensic linguist; Outi Tuomainen, professor, University of Potsdam.

Organisers: the Department of Applied Linguistics and Phonetics, the Doctoral School Intercultural Linguistics, and the Doctoral School of Applied Linguistics of Eötvös Loránd University, Faculty of Humanities, and the Society of Hungarian Linguistics

Call for Papers:

Possible conference themes include: researching communication (manipulative language use, doctor-patient and teacher-student communication, communication in emergency situations, etc.), forensic linguistics, economics, healthcare, commerce, diplomacy, tourism, sports, education, language rights, informatics, engineering, natural sciences, aviation safety, etc.

A person can apply to be the presenting author for a maximum of two papers: as a first author and as a co-author of a paper. The first author of each paper must register for the conference and pay the participation fee.

We are organizing both parallel sessions and poster sessions.

We are asking participants to submit an abstract of maximum 200 words that addresses the analysis of a concrete problem and the suggested solution. Please follow the attached sample.

The abstracts can be submitted through the EasyChair submission system until 15 May 2021. For more details of the application process and registration, please visit the conference webpage.
