Meeting Description:

The Institute of Linguistics, School of English at the University of Silesia is pleased to announce the 33rd International Conference on Foreign and Second Language Acquisition (ICFSLA). As it has been for over thirty years now, this conference focuses on research in second language acquisition and foreign language learning, relating to different aspects of both the teaching and learning of second/foreign languages. This time we decided to focus among other topics on the most recent research as well as the didactic experiences determined by the ongoing pandemic of Covid-19.

Final Call for Papers:

The leading theme and the programme focus
The main topic of the upcoming 2022 conference is: Modern technologies in foreign language teaching, learning and research. The presence of modern technologies is not a new theme, as both didactic context as well as research ideas have been informed by it for decades now so we are also interested in some of these more traditional approaches and contributions. However, the main idea behind the conference theme comes from our more recent experiences of functioning in the largely different environment of online teaching, learning and research. Thus, we thought that perhaps our annual conference during the post-pandemic time when life will be given back to us can become a forum for sharing the new ideas that have originated in this difficult period for us all. We would like to share these experiences and to demonstrate how we all managed to use modern technology to the best of the potential it offered but also to approach it critically understanding its dangers and inadequacies. We hope that this topic will attract a wide range of participants from different academic institutions around the world and that this shared reflection will enrich our perceptions of the way educational institutions function in their didactic and research roles now and in the future.

Traditionally, in addition to the leading theme, we also accept selected proposals in other areas of SLA research of interest to our conference participants for our varia sessions as well as those presentations that relate to multilingualism research. In other words, please do not hesitate to consider submitting your proposal even if it does not fit the main theme of the conference. The choice of the topic to be presented – as long as it relates to SLA in some way -is not the criterion for the acceptance of the proposed presentation.

Plenary Speakers:

- Prof. Larissa Aronin (Oranim Academic College of Education, Haifa)
- Prof. Regine Hampel (Open University, UK)
- Prof. Simone Pfenninger & Mason Wirtz (co-author) (University of Salzburg, Salzburg)
- Prof. Arkadiusz Rojczyk (University of Silesia, Katowice)
