Call for papers

In a networked era, we are witnessing rapidly changing, web-mediated communication practices involving a variety of communicative purposes, audiences, modes and media. Emerging trends in disciplinary knowledge communication such as the Open Science paradigm attest to this fact. Academic and professional communication today thus poses important theoretical, methodological and pedagogical challenges that need addressing. Some of the questions that we aim to address are: What is the role of LSP teaching and research in an increasingly interconnected world? What methods and frameworks are suitable to investigate multilingual and multimodal communication online? How can practitioners support emerging digital communication needs in the professions? How can they best prepare future graduates and professionals to disseminate their work in digital environments?, and how can LSP research and practice help them develop the necessary literacies (academic, plurilingual and digital literacies)?

We have a terrific line-up of plenary and featured speakers, including:

  • Christine B. Feak (University of Michigan, US)
  • Eric Friginal (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University)
  • Laura M. Muresan (Bucharest University of Economic Studies, Romania)
  • Christine Tardy (Northern Arizona University, US)
  • Vijay Bhatia (The Chinese University of Hong Kong)
  • John Swales (University of Michigan, US)

This joint international conference brings together the 21st annual conference of the European Association of Languages for Specific Purposes (AELFE2023) and the 7th Conference of the Asia-Pacific LSP & Professional Communication Association (LSPPC7). Both associations promote the use of languages for specific purposes and professional communication.
