The Centre of Applied Linguistics and the Department of English Studies at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Latvia are pleased to announce the 3rd International Symposium on Language for International Communication to be held in Riga on May 26 - 27, 2016, in continuation of academic and scientific cooperation started by the two preceding symposiums in 2011 and 2013.

The symposium, organized as a two-day interdisciplinary conference, endeavours to establish links between disciplines concerned with the instrumental use of language in international communication and with the study of its acquisition, the focus being on linguistic capacity building for international scientific and professional communication.

The aim of the forum is to bring together scholars, practitioners and novice researchers from different linguistic backgrounds and disciplines for a discussion on the role of languages in international communication in the contemporary world. We invite researchers from all over the world to share their research results and new ideas to encourage and promote cross-cultural cooperation.

The focus of the forum is on sub-fields of general and applied linguistics, such as semantics, pragmatics, text and corpus linguistics, discourse analysis, language acquisition, lexicology, lexicography, translation and interpretation, and other.

The languages of the symposium are English, French, German and Spanish. Latvian and other European languages are welcome for informal communication at the symposium.
