The Japan Language Testing Association (JLTA) invites presentation proposals for its 20th anniversary conference. We look forward to receiving your proposals related to the conference theme, and to language testing and assessment in general.

This year's conference will be co-sponsored by the Japan Association for Language Teaching (JALT) Testing and Evaluation Special Interest Group (TEVAL SIG). Members of JALT TEVAL SIG can participate in and present at the conference in a similar manner as JLTA members can.

At this year's conference, the keynote speech and the symposium will be presented in English. We are also expecting presenters from our partner association, Korea English Language Testing Association (KELTA). We welcome proposals for presentations to be given in English.

The call for papers deadline has been extended to July 8th. Presenters will each have 20 minutes to present their papers; this will be followed by 10 minutes for discussion. Note that each participant can present multiple times, but only once as the paper's first presenter.

Dates: September 17, 2016 (Saturday) to September 18, 2016 (Sunday; Main conference with a keynote speech, a symposium, and paper presentations). Please see the JLTA website for details.
