Ultima actualizare: 6 Ian 2021

The deadline for submissions is 20 January 2021

Conference homepage...

The conference would like to invite proposals from researchers, including Ph.D. and master’s students, that cover original research on multilingualism in education. Proposals can also cover practitioner accounts of implementing specific activities and approaches related to multilingualism in education. We therefore strongly encourage teachers to submit such proposals and share their experiences.

 All proposals must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another conference. Each participant can submit a maximum of one proposal where they are the sole author of their work. They may submit a second proposal where the work was a collaborative project between several authors.

 There are two main forms of participation. The following proposal categories are welcome:

  • Traditional presentation: 30 minutes (20 minute presentation + 10 minute Q&A session)
  • Rapid presentation: 15 minutes (10 minute presentation + 5 minute Q&A)

Please note that the time limit will be strictly adhered to. Proposals should take the form of a 200-word abstract (excluding references and in .pdf format). Do not include any identifying information or keywords in the document you upload. Each proposal will undergo a double-blind peer review process involving a minimum of two reviewers. Note that all conference presentations are expected to be carried out in English, although there will be a special session devoted to presentations in Scandinavian languages. During the submission process, you will be asked to indicate if you would like to present in the special session.

The deadline for submissions is 20 January 2021, and acceptance notifications will be sent out in early February 2021. There are no fees for participating in the conference.

We especially welcome proposals related to the following themes:

Multilingual education policies

  • Teachers’ and teacher educators’ beliefs about multilingualism
  • Pedagogical approaches to multilingualism
  • Multilingualism, language learning, and language awareness
  • Multilingualism and assessment
  • Multilingual identity development
  • The intersection of multilingualism and intercultural learning
  • Enhancing multilingualism in the school subjects (language and non-language subjects)
  • Multilingualism and global citizenship
  • Multilingualism in higher education


Proposals on themes other than the ones listed here are also welcome as long as they adhere to the conference’s overarching theme (i.e. multilingualism in education). You can submit your proposal by clicking here.
