EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON LANGUAGE AND DIGITAL COMMUNICATION
AILA-Europe and VALS-ASLA welcome you to the 7th Junior Researchers Meeting in Applied Linguistics
10th–12th September 2015 hosted by the Zurich University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland
The Junior Researchers Meeting allows early-career applied linguists to present their research and to network in an interactive and informal international environment.
"Junior Researchers" include those working on their Master’s and PhD theses as well as those who have graduated within the last three years.
At the conference, each session will have designated senior researchers as commentators to foster questions and discussion. The programme will also include workshops on various aspects of an academic career, such as publishing and funding.
The conference focuses on language use in digital environments within and across educational, academic, professional and everyday settings. In addition to this theme, papers on other areas of applied linguistics are welcome. Participants may also present work in progress.
