The 30th Conference of the European Second Language Association

Welcome to the EuroSLA 30 Conference 

This year conference is certainly a special one since we celebrate the 30th anniversary of EuroSLA, and we feel privileged to host such an important event. As you all know last year’s conference at the University of Barcelona had to be cancelled because of the world pandemic. The re-confirmation by an overwhelming majority of accepted submissions from last year is a sign of vitality and energy and of people’s commitment to our field and our community. We would like to thank all our presenters for that. 

In the last few months we have been working intensely to offer you an attractive and appealing program that will make your attendance worthwhile. On the digital platform "Dryfta" you will find everything you need as an attendant to the conference. You will see our detailed program where you will be able to select the presentations you wish to attend. We are happy to count on the four plenary talks of the plenary speakers we invited last year and to whom we are deeply grateful, as well as the speakers and discussant in the Language Learning Roundtable. We are also extremely grateful to Language Learning for their continued support. Doctoral workshops, regular papers and posters will take place at given dates and times, as in a face-to-face conference. You will be able to access information about each talk with a single click. During the sessions there will be room for Q&A in audio and text chat and we hope you will participate actively. The conference will also include EuroSLA activities such as the Distinguished Scholar award, the Student Stipend awards, the AGM, and of course the 30th anniversary celebration. Please check out our social program with lot more activities to meet colleagues and make your experience even more memorable. 

We look forward to seeing you all at EuroSLA 30 conference!
