Meeting Description:

The 7th International Conference of English as a Lingua Franca (ELF7) to be held at DEREE - The American College of Greece, Athens, on September 4-6, 2014 follows the highly successful first six conferences in the series that were held in Helsinki (2008), Southampton (2009), Vienna (2010), Hong Kong (2011), Istanbul (2012), and Rome (2013).

ELF has now established itself as a major and expanding field of academic research. Its interconnections with pedagogy and a host of other disciplines are being currently discussed, acknowledged, and investigated. Targeting English language educators who work with English language users from diverse educational and cultural backgrounds in a wide variety of settings, ELF can uniquely be interconnected with issues affecting and related to identity, language policy-making, intercultural awareness, technology, and language use at all levels facilitating human communications globally.

ELF7 seeks to explore these interfaces of ELF with pedagogy and other disciplines in the interest of the advancement of the field.

Call for Papers:

The Organising Committee cordially invites you to submit your abstracts to the ELF7 Conference, hosted by DEREE - The American College of Greece, Athens. The ELF7 committee members invite participants to contribute to this conference by submitting their work, reporting on current ELF research and/or participating in constructive ELF discussions on a variety of issues that would undoubtedly lead to maintaining ELF interest, increasing ELF insight, and furthering ELF research.

Abstracts which address the ELF7 Conference theme are particularly welcome. However, the Conference is open to abstracts in any ELF-related area.

Proposals are invited for the following types of presentations:

- Paper Presentation (PP): A 30-minute session (including 5-10 min. discussion), which may be supported with visual material and handouts. The presenter describes work in relation to theory, empirical research or practice.

- PhD (papers): Please indicate by writing PhD Paper whether your paper presentation refers to a PhD thesis you are currently writing/completing and indicate whether you wish this presentation to be considered for the Doctoral Workshop. From the accepted papers, 5-6 will be selected for the Doctoral Workshop.

- Poster Presentation (PstP): A one-on-one discussion of the conference-related theme. Presenters can post their ideas/thoughts/materials/ongoing research on a notice board visually (e.g. using photos, charts, graphs, tables) and answer queries to comments from participants in a special session during the Conference.

To submit your abstract, please visit the congress website: www.elf7.org.
