  • language learners as people and their various individual characteristics, including self-concept, motivation, identities, beliefs, agency, and emotions
  • the dynamics of the learning process and interaction with others
  • context and the psychology of language learning
  • innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to research
  • practical classroom applications

As part of the conference, we are extremely proud to announce the following plenary speakers:

  • Mimi Bong, Korea University
  • Zoltán Dörnyei, University of Nottingham, UK

We welcome proposals from researchers and educators working in all contexts. We particularly encourage submissions from graduate students and early career researchers and educators. PLL3 will be an ideal venue for presenting research in progress and also practical applications of theoretical concepts.

Types of presentations:
● paper        ● poster        ● work in progress
● symposium (thematically related papers with discussion)

See Submission Guidelines for more information.

Language policy: The working language of the conference is English. If a presentation is based on data in any other language, use of multilingual material (e.g. in PowerPoint slides, handouts) is recommended.

All proposals will be evaluated anonymously by the PLL Scientific Committee and the PLL3 Review Board, and they will be evaluated for their contribution to the field quality of content, thematic relevance, quality of abstract (organization, clarity of expression).

Notice of acceptances will be sent out by the end of January 2018 (see Important Dates).
