The Applied Linguistics Association of Australia will be hosting the 2014 conference of the International Applied Linguistics Association Conference on 10-15 August, 2014 at the University of Queensland (UQ) in Brisbane, Australia. The conference theme is “One World, Many Languages”.
From the conference website:
“The program of invited plenary speakers and invited symposia aims to provide a snapshot of emerging and cutting edge trends in Applied Linguistics internationally. It will also reflect the diversity of research in the broad field of Applied Linguistics , both in its traditional heartland of second language learning and teaching, and also in more socially-oriented and / or emerging fields related to language and society, language and diversity, language policy, multilingualism, discourse analysis, communication in professional and other contexts, and forensic linguistics.
As AILA 21014 marks 50 years since the first AILA was held in Cambridge in 1964, two of the invited symposia are specifically designed to revisit the themes of AILA 1964, which were:
- Automatic Translation
- Language Teaching
- Research Cooperation in Europe
Much has changed since 1964, with a much greater diversity of research strands and research areas, also reflected in the symposia organized by the Research Networks (ReNs). However, there are also elements of continuity, which the program is designed to explore.”
AILA 2014 invites proposals for presentations that are related to policy, research, and theory in areas of applied linguistics. Proposals may be for individual papers, posters, symposia or workshops.
