Besides this conference focus, papers on other areas of applied linguistics are welcome. A paper may present also work in progress. 

The three-day Junior Researcher Meeting allows early career applied linguists to present their research and 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.
