19th AILA World Congress 2020: Call for Symposia

August 9-14, 2020

University of Groningen, Netherlands



The next AILA World Congress will take place at The University of Groningen. Visit the Congress website aila2020.nl for more detailed information about the venue and the conference. The Call for Papers will be made available on the AILA 2020 website.


Call for Symposia

To make the conference more coherent, we have decided to have a new format. That is, AILA 2020 will consist of symposia only covering any field in Applied Linguistics. Once symposia have been accepted, we will open a Call for Papers, where individuals can submit to these symposia as 'strands'. See the website and attached document for more detailed information and examples.

Please read the AILA2020-Call for Symposia carefully and see the website for more information.

Deadline for Symposium proposals is May 6th 2019.


Application for Grants

AILA aims to extend participation in Applied Linguistics across geographical areas not currently well represented in our association by offering a limited number of Solidarity Awards to scholars in Applied Linguistics who might be unable to participate in the World Congress without financial support.

Scholars who would like to apply for the Solidarity Award can find more information under Solidarity Awards. The deadline for the applications will be announced on this site and on the official AILA2020 website.
