Call for Papers




This is the second HAAL Research Forum for researchers and teachers in the area of applied linguistics.  The forum provides an opportunity for them to report on research, explore ideas, update themselves on current developments and, in general, share their professional interests with others in a friendly and informal atmosphere. 



Our keynote speaker is Prof. John Flowerdew of the City University of Hong Kong.



Yafu Gong of the University of Hong Kong, He An E of the Hong Kong Institute of Education, and Yongyan Li of Nanjing University will participate in a panel discussion titled ¡°China as an ELT Powerhouse¡±. Jun Liu (the current President of TESOL) may also take part in the discussion.



We are looking for contributions that relate to both quantitative and qualitative research in applied linguistics. Postgraduate students who are nearing the completion of their theses are welcome to submit proposals.


Proposals for papers (20 minutes + 5 minutes for Q & A) should reach the organisers not later than 9 March 2007.


Please note that each presenter is limited to one individual presentation OR one joint presentation.
