Vocabulary SIG of JALT:

2023 Vocabulary Symposium

Date: Saturday, October 7th, 2023 Time: Time TBA

Speaker: Call for Poster Session Presentations open until July 17

The Vocabulary SIG is excited to announce its 2023 symposium which features Joseph P. Vitta (Kyushu University) and Anna Siyanova-Chanturia (Victoria University of Wellington) as discussants with invite speakers presenting on a wide range of topics spanning from classroom vocabulary learning to formulaic expressions. We're also delighted that Daniel Isbell (University of Hawaii), Laura Vilkaite-Lozdiene (Vilnius University), and Ryo Maie (The University of Tokyo), amongst others, will be presenting their work as well.

As a component of the event, there will be a 90 minute poster session in the middle of the day. To that end, we would like to invite poster session proposals:

  • Proposal should feature L2 vocabulary learning and/or instruction.
  • Proposals can involve completed research or works in progress.
  • Proposals can straddle the practitioner-research divide in presenting reflections, evidence-supported teacher tips, and/or action research.

How to apply? Please complete this Google form by July 17, 2023. Acceptance notifications will be sent out by mid-August.

Conference fee includes a light breakfast, coffee and soft drinks, and lunch. Poster titles and author names will be published in the SIG's academic journal with the invited papers of the symposium.
