W3C Workshop - Making the Multilingual Web Work

Today, the World Wide Web is fundamental to communication in all walks of life. Although English once dominated the Web, other languages are increasing their presence, with long-term economic and social impacts. If the Web is to deliver its promised benefits and live up to the ideal of a single, world-wide network, it is vitally important to ensure the multilingual success of the World Wide Web.

DGfS 2013 Workshop: Specific Conditions in Language Acquisition

The papers in this workshop will focus on three topics: i) the comparison between different populations and different languages as a way to characterize the language acquisition process under specific conditions; ii) the distinction between 'typical' and 'atypical' language development and the discussion of different explanations for the latter (such as an impairment of the linguistic system or a performance deficit) and their potential interplay; and iii) the contribution of experimental data to inform the representation of grammar under specific conditions and vice versa.

The workshop gives an opportunity to address also methodological questions, e.g. the factors that need to be controlled when discussing different groups and the criteria of matching in order to draw meaningful comparisons (e.g. matching based on age, length of exposure, or linguistic abilities). Towards this end, the workshop aims to bring together recent studies that examine two or more groups acquiring one language under different specific conditions or cross-linguistic research on children acquiring different languages under the same specific condition, namely: children with Specific Language Impairment (SLI), children with hearing impairment, L2-learners with different ages of onset and children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The research will include the acquisition of different aspects of language, such as phonetics/phonology, inflectional morphology, and syntax.

4th Bremen Symposium on Foreign Language Learning Processes

Recent discussions in the field of foreign language teaching and learning have concerned many new aspects: including the task-based definition of learning goals, the clear differentiation of competence levels, and the introduction of binding quality standards. These discussions have also pursued the goal of improving the efficiency and success of foreign language learning processes. However, the learning processes themselves have only been taken into consideration to a much lesser extent.

The 4th Bremen Symposion 2013 offers a platform that will bring together practical research results and reflected practice with regard to the organisation of foreign language learning processes in the institutional context of Higher Education. Against the background of this objective, all contributions are welcome that either give a duly reasoned guideline to the optimal organisation of learning processes from a research perspective, or that reflect the impacts and the success of classroom and/ or autonomous learning arrangements from a practitioner's perspective.

A Germanic Sandwich 2013

‘A Germanic Sandwich 2013’ will be held at the University of Leuven from 11-12 January 2013, as the fourth edition of a series of conferences in which Dutch is compared with its West Germanic neighbours, English and German. The first one took place in Berlin to commemorate the 1956 appearance of the seminal publication Nederlands tussen Duits en Engels ('Dutch between German and English'), a study by the renowned Dutch linguist C.B. van Haeringen. Later editions of the conference were held at Sheffield (2008) and Oldenburg (2010). The conferences have spawned a number of special issues, either as a book volume (Hüning et al. 2006) or as special issues of journals (Vismans et al. 2010; Ruigendijk et al. in prep.).
