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.
