ALAPP 2020 - NTNU - SEKOM
10th International and Interdisciplinary Conference on
Applied Linguistics and Professional Practice (ALAPP)
16-18 September 2020, in Trondheim, Norway (Changed to digital event. See below.)
The international and interdisciplinary conference on Applied Linguistics and Professional Practice (ALAPP) aims to bring together scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds, especially language and communication research, and professional specialities (e.g. business, organisation studies, education, banking, health care, therapy, journalism, law, social care and welfare, immigration and border control, police work, translation and interpreting). ALAPP is closely linked with Journal of Applied Linguistics and Professional Practice (JALPP) (Equinox), with a view to bringing seminal research to a wider readership.
We are proud to announce the keynote speakers for the ALAPP 2020 conference:
In light of the continuing uncertainties regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, ALAPP 2020 will be a digital event in accordance with current restrictions on travels and physical gatherings. We realise this alternative arrangement falls short of the face-to-face interactional dynamics of ALAPP, but this is much preferred to cancelling the event.
As you will be aware, acceptance decisions on submissions are still pending, although all submissions have now gone through the peer review process. In the next few days decisions will be communicated.
Please note that there will be no registration fees for ALAPP 2020. However, all participants will be required to register online so as to enable us to draw up the programme. Further details about presentation format/duration will be communicated at a later date. For the time being, please note that the deadline for the presentations to reach the conference organisers (email@example.com) is 09 September 2020.
Following the digital event, as a further incentive, all presenters are encouraged to submit written versions of their work for possible inclusion in the Journal of Applied Linguistics and Professional Practice (JALPP). The deadline for submission is 18 December 2020 via the journal’s online procedure. Following the usual peer review procedure, if a sufficient number of accepted mss is reached, a single or double special issue of JALPP will be designated to comprise ALAPP 2020 presentations. Alternatively, accepted individual manuscripts will appear in regular issues. Guidelines for online submission
