15th Warwick International Postgraduate Conference in Applied Linguistics

(26th - 27th June 2012)


Thank you for helping to make the 15th Warwick International Postgraduate Conference in Applied Linguistics a success. Please see the tabs above to view photos from our two-day event, as well as download PDFs from the pre-conference workshops.

The Postgraduate Conference aims to offer the opportunity for postgraduate students from various areas in language teaching and applied linguistics from any institution to present their research, to attend experts' keynote presentations, to meet peers who engage in similar research activities, to practise their presentation skills, and to get valuable feedback on their research.

This year will see our successful pre-conference workshops on the previous day by distinguished researchers from our Centre which will cover various aspects of research methodology and research themes. We welcome anyone to attend the workshops.

Please see the tabs above for more information about the PG Conference, including Call for Papers (online abstract submission) and registration.
