Call for Papers for FIPLV Congress
June 27-29, 2022, Warsaw, Poland
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT FIPLV WORLD CONGRESS
FIPLV World Congress of Modern Languages
Warsaw, June 27th-29th, 2022
Language education in the times of global change: The need for collaboration and new perspectives
Our initial intention was to hold the FIPLV World Congress of Modern Languages in September 2021 in Warsaw in association with the Polish Association of Modern Languages, together with its annual conference. Despite the unprecedented situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we had been hoping that the event could still take place as planned. It has now become quite evident, however, that even if the conference could indeed go ahead, there is far too much uncertainty to take such a risk. We are also fully aware that it is very difficult to apply for funding, book flights and make hotel reservations, not really knowing what the future holds. At the same time, we strongly feel that most of our members are eagerly looking forward to the opportunity to meet face-to-face rather than participate in another virtual event.
For all these reasons, the Executive Committees of both FIPLV and the Polish Association of Modern Languages have agreed that the best option will be to postpone the event until 2022 when the pandemic has likely been brought under control. The Congress is scheduled to take place in Warsaw, Poland, on June 27th-29th, 2022, it will still be held in conjunction with the annual conference of the Polish association, and it will be hosted by Warsaw University.
We will be sending out the first Call for Papers in February 2021 and the closing date for the submission of abstracts will be September 30th, 2021. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by the end of November 2021. Presentations in all major world languages, as well as Polish, will be welcome.
We are sincerely hoping for a huge turn-out following the long period of lockdowns and travel restrictions.
We look forward to seeing you in Poland.
FIPLV Executive Committee
