Fifth International Symposium on Language for Specific Purposes (ISLSP) & Centers for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) Language Conference at the University of Charlotte… “Taking Stock and Moving Forward: LSP Theory, Method, Content, Curriculum, Collaboration” @ UNC Charlotte
Mar 5 – Mar 7 all-day



 March 5–7, 2020

Fifth International Symposium on Language for Specific Purposes (ISLSP) & Centers for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) Language Conference at the University of Charlotte…
“Taking Stock and Moving Forward:
LSP Theory, Method, Content, Curriculum, Collaboration”


On the occasion of its fifth biennial gathering, it is fitting that the ISLSP should “take stock” of what has transpired since its origins at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2012, and its accomplishments to date. This conference provides a forum for the community of LSP scholars, instructors, and administrators to address, develop and reflect on issues related to LSP theory,methodology and practice. At the same time, this fifth gathering should be all about “moving forward” with the CIBERs, exploring LSP developments and possibilities as we travel into the coming decade(s). “Taking Stock and Moving Forward: LSP Theory, Method, Content, Curriculum, Collaboration” will share developments and innovation in LSP research, practice, and curriculum development, broadly considered.





2nd International Conference of the Slovene Association of LSP Teachers @ Rimske Terme Thermal Resort
May 14 @ 9:00 am – May 16 @ 5:00 pm

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

We are calling for proposals for the 2 nd international conference of the Slovene Association of LSP Teachers, which will take place in Rimske Toplice, Slovenia, from 14 to 16 May 2020. The Slovene Association of LSP Teachers (SDUTSJ), which plays an important role in the development of LSP teaching and research in Slovenia, held a highly acclaimed 1 st international conference in 2017 to celebrate the Association’s twentieth anniversary. The event brought together researchers and teachers from twenty-six countries, who delivered more than ninety presentations on a wide variety of LSP topics. The selected articles based on the contributions presented at the conference have been published in the Association’s online journal Scripta Manent (indexed in MLA, Erih+, DOAJ, LLBA) and in the conference proceedings in series Inter Alia. Three years later, the Association is holding its 2 nd international conference, with which it wishes to offer LSP researchers and teachers the opportunity to share their latest original research, views, and practices applicable to LSP teaching contexts. Taking into account growing internationalization and the need for cooperation in LSP research and teaching, the conference also aims to consolidate collaboration with existing partners and to establish new links within the broader international research and teaching community.
