Conference URL: http://cji.uniri.hr/en/conference/

The Center for Language Research (CLAR) at the University of Rijeka, Croatia, in cooperation with the Institute of Croatian Language and Linguistics (ICLL), Croatia, invites you to participate in an international conference on Perspectives on Language Planning and Policies.

We invite proposals for papers on any topic related to the domain of language planning and policies, either from the perspective of linguistics or from the perspective of other disciplines in the field of humanities and social sciences. Papers may focus on any language, social context or historical period and, if accepted, will be included in the general section of the conference.

A special session, Croatian Language Planning in the Last Quarter Century, is organized in cooperation with the ICLL. Abstract proposals for this session should focus on the issues of language planning and policies related to the Croatian language from 1990 onwards.

Topics for either the general session or the special session may include, but are not limited to:
• Corpus planning (standardization and normatization of language)
• Role of institutions in the development of standard language and in the promotion and preservation of language culture
• Implementation of language policies
