Welcome to the next national symposium for ASLA (Swedish Association for Applied Linguistics) organized on 18–19 April 2024 at the Department of Language, Literature and Learning, Dalarna University.

Theme for the symposium

The theme of the symposium is  Language and communication in a digitized world, which should be interpreted in a broad and creative sense. Contributions within applied linguistics that are not directly connected to the theme are also welcome. In addition to session presentations, the symposium includes four plenary lectures, a panel discussion and poster presentations.

Submission of abstracts

Abstracts for conference contributions are submitted via the symposium's website. The length of the abstract is max. 300 words excluding references. The abstract must clearly state the study's purpose, method, theoretical starting point and (expected) results.

The last day for submitting abstracts is October 15, 2023.

Contributions can be in Swedish, Danish, Norwegian or English. The symposium is held in Falun. We also offer the possibility of digital presentations.
