call for symposia


extended deadline:

27 March 2022 (23:59 CET)



Dear colleagues,


We would like to inform you that the call for symposia for the International Congress of the International Association of Applied Linguistics - AILA, which will be held from 17 to 21 July 2023 in Lyon (France), in hybrid mode, has been extended until Sunday 27 March 2022 (23:59 CET).


We encourage colleagues to submit symposia as they contribute to the coherence and fluidity of the new AILA conference format. In particular, they allow for a better representation of all sub-disciplines of applied linguistics but also of less visible languages. 


Researchers first submit proposals for symposia and then a call for individual submissions will be launched in Spring 2022.  Individual submissions should then be tailored to the theme of one of the symposia selected in the first phase. The standard format of the symposia will be hybrid, but the novelty is that we will be able to offer symposia in a 100% remote format with reduced registration fees. Another new feature is that the symposia can be in any of 4 languages: French, English, Spanish and German. Our objective is to offer better accessibility to the congress through the hybrid format, to think about a logistical approach anchored in sustainable development, and to propose an event on a human scale.
