Next February, we hope even more people will come together at UEC Tokyo for this event. There will be three invited speakers who will talk about ESP/EAP from various perspectives. Also, everyone is invited to submit abstracts for a poster to share your educational ideas and research with a wider range of practitioners and researchers of ESP/EAP. Deadline for abstracts of poster presentations will be December 21, 2014. The abstracts will be vetted, and notification of acceptance will take place on December 26, 2014. Poster and proceeding submissions will be due January 18, 2015. Even if you are unable to present a poster, you are welcome to just come to attend the event and benefit from the invited speakers and other peers' presentations.
