The Committee of Applied Linguistics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences and the Research Institute for Linguistics announces its Conference for PhD Students of Applied Linguistics. The conference is organized every year. The 11th conference will take place at the Research Institute for Linguistics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (1068 Budapest, Benczúr str. 33).
The aim of the conference
The topics of applied linguistics are addressed at an advanced level in many PhD programs in Hungary, however, the students of these doctoral programs have few opportunities to gain insight into the work at other programs and to find out about each other's main research topics, questions and methods. Our conferences aim to present an opportunity for such meetings and discussions.
The aim of the conference is to provide an opportunity to introduce high quality PhD research in applied linguistics, to discuss questions and issues occurring in the various topics and to help young researchers to make contact with each other and other representatives of the field.
Topics of the conference
All topics related to applied linguistics by PhD- and MA-students are welcome at the conference.
Application for the conference
The applications of all PhD students are welcome at the conference, regardless of what program they are part of.
