The two categories of proposals are: (1) individual papers and (2) posters.

Individual papers: Papers are formal presentations on original research by one or more authors, lasting a total of 30 minutes (20 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion). Please note that the time limit will be strictly adhered to.

Posters: Poster sessions are for displaying research that offers the opportunity for individualised, informal discussion of the research. Posters are especially effective for presenting work-in-progress, fieldwork and results of empirical research if data can be presented visually (e.g. charts, graphs, tables). A block of time will be designated when presenters are available to discuss their posters. Posters should be in the size of DIN A1 or A0 in portrait format.

The Conference will be held next April 19-21, 2018 at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, located in the heart of the city centre. This year’s focus will be the ways in which Applied Linguistics, a well-established area of study and research, can contribute to enhance economic growth and societal wellbeing by integrating employability, internationalization and knowledge transfer issues across higher education. In this way, AESLA 2018 aims to raise awareness of the significant contribution of Applied Linguistics to these three key issues and explore the social challenges which scholars, researchers and students need to address when trying to build successful and sustainable collaboration between universities, business and the public sector in national, transnational and international contexts.

AESLA 2018 invites scholars to submit their papers, posters, and round table proposals in any of the two official languages of the conference: Spanish or English. Submissions may be related to the conference main theme or fall within the scope of any of the following thematic panels:

  • Language acquisition
