Deadline: 31 October 2017

Research Networks (ReNs) within AILA are formed for promoting research and disseminating their research findings inside and outside AILA. Each ReN focuses on a special topic area of Applied Linguistics that has the potential for new cross-disciplinary research. ReNs exist for three years and can be renewed upon reapplication.

The criteria for ReNs includes:

  • a research area pertaining to applied linguistics;
  • participants who are active in the research area of the ReN;
  • at least five members, some of whom should be new scholars;
  • multinational composition with universities from at least three countries;
  • a commitment to fill a ReN symposium slot at the AILA Congress three years hence;
  • a report of the activities of the last three years if your ReN is seeking renewal;

For applications (both renewals and new applications), the ReN convenor must submit a proposal to the ReN Coordinator. The proposal should consist of

  • a statement concerning the scope of the ReN,
  • a list of the participants of the ReN and their affiliation,
  • a plan for ReN activities for the upcoming three years, and
  • a design for a ReN symposium at the 19th AILA Congress

Applications to set up a ReN should be submitted between 1 September 2017 and 31 October 2017. Submissions should be sent to the AILA ReN Coordinator, Laura Gurzynski-Weiss (lgurzyns@indiana.edu). Notification of acceptance will occur by 31 January 2018.
