As you know, annual International LIF Conferences have already become an academic platform for exchanging ideas, projects and scientific research between aspiring academics, teachers, and well-known researchers thanks to your invaluable contributions. In harmony with this spirit of academic enthusiasm, LIF2018 aims at providing a forum for participants from various disciplines and research communities to advance interconnections between ELT and SLA as well as to explore different perspectives on the application of research findings into practice.
Therefore, we would like to invite academics, scholars, representatives of central and local educational authorities, non-governmental organizations, school teachers and practitioners representing an exciting diversity of countries, cultures, and religions to meet and exchange ideas and views in a forum encouraging respectful dialogue. LIF2018, to be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, will be a great opportunity to meet experts in varied areas of ELT and SLA.
LIF2018’s theme “Contemporary Means and Methods in ELT and Applied Linguistics” aims at providing a forum for researchers, teachers and educational representatives. Centered around topics in SLA and ELT, the conference will focus on:
- ELT Methodology and classroom applications
- Foreign Language Teacher Education
- SLA / ELT focused theories
- ICT in Language Teaching
- Psychological and psycholinguistic perspectives in SLA / ELT
- Content and Language Integrated Learning CLIL and CLILiG
- Multilingualism / bilingualism
- Corpus Linguistics and Learner Corpora
- Syntax, morphology, and Semantics
- Lexical processing
- Discourse analysis
- Translation and interpreting
- Language policies
However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of disciplines and fields related to Applied Linguistics and Teaching Foreign Languages.
