To document the development of the field, this page contains a list of past congresses. According to availability, we are trying to present information on dates and venue, main topics, and publications. To supplement these in part only fragmentary data, readers are kindly invited to provide the AILA Secretariat with any additional information on the respective congress.

To make the work in research and practice of AILA members more visible during the time between the triennialAILA World Congresses, AILA pursues a strategy of regionalization that aims at establishing closer international cooperation among Applied Linguists from more or less neighbouring countries who are affiliated to AILA by fostering joint events, projects and publications in the respective region. While such a close cooperation has been established in North America between AAAL (USA) and CAAL (Canada) for a long time, cooperation in other areas of the world, such as Asia, Europe, Latin America or Africa could be more intense.

Therefore AILA encourages the setting up of self-organized regional networks as a basis for more intense cross-border cooperation.
