About APLX 2017

The 2017 Taipei Tech International Conference on Applied Linguistics (APLX 2017), to be hosted by the Department of English at National Taipei University of Technology on November 16-17, 2017, will bring together researchers interested in linguistics, language teaching, discourse, SLA, translation, cultural studies, and other related fields to report new research findings, exchange innovative ideas, and share frameworks in these areas. Since 2006, the Department has carried on a tradition of hosting an annual conference—on applied linguistics studies in odd-numbered years and on literary studies in even-numbered years—to promote academic excellence in the humanities field. Over the years, the conference has attracted applied linguists not only from around Taiwan but also from neighboring Asian countries. This year, we continue this tradition hoping to attract a greater number of international researchers to present research findings in their areas of expertise, with a view to facilitating productive exchanges and fruitful interaction between participants and stimulating new ideas and research directions in their respective fields of study.
