Language Testing Forum 2014

21 - 23 November 2014

Conference Theme: Language Testing: Engaging multi-disciplinary perspectives

Call for Papers

Language testing and processes of language test validation and evaluation draw on theoretical perspectives from fields such as Applied Linguistics and Second Language Acquisition. The approach informs test design and format, and test data analysis. This conference is an opportunity for language testers and language educators to engage with new developments in these fields, and other multi-disciplinary perspectives which can help us meet emerging and future challenges.

We invite submissions to contribute to the topic in the form of paper or poster.

We particularly would like to invite young researchers and PhD students to present their work. All student presenters will benefit from a subsidized registration fee of £25, which includes two evening dinners sponsored by the British Council.

Please submit your abstract here.

The deadline for abstract (max 350 words) submission is 26 September. We will notify delegates of the results by 10 October.

Please contact LTF2014@soton.ac.uk with any further queries.
