The CUE ESP Symposium--Hokuriku 2013 features:

  1. A plenary presentation from two of the foremost experts in English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and English for Academic Purposes (EAP) publishing in Japan;
  2. interactive workshops and research presentations addressing some of the barriers faced by non-native speakers (NNS) seeking to publish in English;
  3. a chance to share your own ESP work during the poster presentation session; and
  4. a round-table discussion of difficulties both native and non-native speakers of English face in when they seek to publish in English.

Add to this the opportunity to network with peers from throughout the country, a dinner featuring local cuisine, and the chance to visit the scenic old castle town of Kanazawa, and you have a great weekend in store. We look forward to seeing you there.
