AELFE-TAPP 2020 International Conference
January 13, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This joint AELFE-TAPP Conference brings together the 19th annual conference of AELFE (Asociación Europea de Lenguas para Fines Específicos/European Association of Languages for Specific Purposes) and the 2nd Conference of the Trans-Atlantic and Pacific Project (TAPP), a growing virtual exchange network that has developed transnational collaborative projects on specialised communication, translation and user experience. The combination of both conferences will allow participants to link the fields of languages for specific purposes (LSP) and telecollaboration/virtual exchange.
The annual AELFE Conference is a meeting point for scholars interested in academic and professional communication from a multidisciplinary perspective.
The first TAPP conference was held in Fargo (ND, USA) in 2016, under the theme “Converging fields”. This second edition, “Expanding networks”, will explore virtual exchange from the perspective of its consolidation and will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from different networks to share their experience and insights.
