AAAL’s primary activity is a four-day annual conference, which typically takes place in March. Welcoming scholars from around the globe, the conference has a reputation as a comprehensive and stimulating professional event that offers thought-provoking plenary presentations, in-depth colloquia and paper sessions, excellent book exhibits, and plentiful opportunities for networking with applied linguists from North America and countries around the world.

In addition, below is information about other upcoming events, conferences, calls for proposals, calls for articles, etc. that are relevant to applied linguists.
