AESLA 2012 - 30th International Conference of the Spanish Association for Applied Linguistics



VenueLleida, Spain Spain



Topics/Call fo Papers

The call for papers for the 30th Annual Conference of The Spanish Association of Applied Linguistics (AESLA) will open on 1st September and the deadline for submissions is 25th November 2011.

Prospective participants are invited to submit proposals for regular papers, posters, or for the organization of round tables. Proposals should be thematically related to the ten panels around which the Association is organized (see below for list of panels). Participants are especially encouraged to submit proposals related to the main conference theme: “Applied Linguistics in the Age of Globalization”. The aim of the conference is to gather researchers from the field of applied linguistics who are working on topics related to communication across different languages, countries, and cultures, with emphasis on how people cope with the communicative situations produced in those contexts (e.g. in case of misunderstanding or conflict, or other types of situations).

The Conference will cover the following areas (panels of AESLA):

Language acquisition
Language teaching
Language for specific purposes
Language psychology, child language and psycholinguistics
Discourse analysis
Corpus linguistics, computational linguistics and linguistic engineering
Lexicology and lexicography
Translation and interpreting
The list of panel coordinators and contact details can be downloaded from

In addition, the 30th Conference of AESLA will also include an interdisciplinary panel on Psycholinguistics, Lexicography and Corpus linguistics, which will be jointly coordinated by the corresponding panel chairs. The aim of this panel is to promote the interrelation of different disciplines within the field of applied linguistics, in order to facilitate synergies among different researchers towards a multidisciplinary approach. Participants can therefore also send proposals related to this new panel (in the same way as for the rest of the panels).

Proposals for papers, posters or round tables must be submitted using the online proposal submission form no later than November 25th, 2011 (see On-line Management section)

Texts should not exceed 500 words, excluding figures and references

Authors will be notified of the acceptance/rejection of their papers around 21st December, once the review processes is completed.

Contributors who wish to publish the extended versions of their papers (approx. 2500 words, including references) in the Conference Proceedings should submit their texts no later than January 31st 2012 following the style sheet available at the web conference (see Participation section).
