AILA World Congress Brisbane August 2014

The International Applied Linguistics Association Conference, Brisbane 2014. The Applied Linguistics Association of Australia is proud to present AILA World Congress 2014.

Taking place at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre from Sunday the 10th until Friday the 15th of August 2014 the AILA Congress 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 2014 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.

The following schedule is only a guideline and is subject to change-

Sunday 10 August 2014
Registration, Opening Ceremony & Welcome Reception
Plenary Session

Monday 11 August 2014
Plenary presentation and Symposium
Parallel and Poster Sessions
