At the ALA conference at Hamar this summer, we invited you to submit papers to the special conference issue. Papers are now coming in, but at this stage we would like to announce that the deadline for submissions is extended to January 2, 2015.
This special issue will contain outstanding papers presented at the 12th International Conference of the Association for Language Awareness. The expected year of publication is spring 2016.
Further submission details
The conference committee plans a special conference issue of the journal Language Awareness containing a selection of refereed articles based on conference presentations. Presenters are invited to submit their papers no later than December 1, 2014. The expected year of publication is 2015. Please confer the Special Issue page for further information.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Ofelia García has withdrawn from ALA 2014. We are happy to announce that Professor Robert DeKeyser from the University of Maryland has been willing to take over as keynote speaker on very short notice. DeKeyser is a leading international researcher in areas highly relevant to language awareness.
The detailed conference programme for parallel sessions will be made available soon at this webpage.
