Languages for Specific Purposes: Opportunities and Challenges of Teaching and Research

2nd international conference of the Slovene Association of LSP Teachers (SDUTSJ)

Call for Papers

SDUTSJ held a highly acclaimed 1st international conference in 2017 to celebrate the Association’s twentieth anniversary. The event brought together researchers and teachers from twenty-six countries, who presented more than ninety papers on a wide variety of LSP topics. Selected papers were  published in the Association’s online journal Scripta Manent (indexed in MLA, Erih+, DOAJ, LLBA) and in the conference proceedings in the Inter Alia series.   The Association is now holding its 2nd international conference, with which it wishes to offer LSP researchers and teachers the opportunity to share their latest original research, views, and practices in LSP teaching contexts. Taking into account growing internationalization and the need for cooperation between research and pedagogy, the conference also aims to consolidate collaboration with existing partners and to establish new links within the broader international research and teaching community.

Submissions are welcome on: ❖ genre-based research ❖ multimodal texts ❖ lexicography and terminography ❖ intercultural studies ❖ language policy ❖ language acquisition process

❖ information-communication technologies  ❖ curriculum and syllabus design ❖ language teaching methodology ❖ teaching and learning materials design ❖ assessment and evaluation ❖ teacher roles, tasks, and competences
