Time to register – ALTE Paris 2014: Conference Update 6
A message from Dr Emyr Davies – Chair of the ALTE Executive Committee and ALTE member – Welsh for Adults Examinations Officer, CBAC-WJEC, Wales
‘With the new academic year well underway, we are now looking forward to next year’s ALTE International Conference, where some of the world’s leading experts will talk on the issue of language assessment for multilingualism, a theme of great relevance to so many of us in the language assessment community.
‘The ALTE International Conference has always been a highlight of the academic calendar and ALTE Paris 2014 promises to be no exception. In addition to a full two-day programme of parallel presentations, poster sessions and exhibitions, we are also delighted to invite all delegates to a cocktail reception on the evening of the first day. The reception will be held in the Salon Honnorat within the beautiful Maison Internationale, and should be a highlight of the conference, a chance to reflect on the first day’s proceedings, catch up with friends old and new, and meet members of ALTE to find out more about our organisation and our aims.
‘I urge you to register early for ALTE Paris 2014, as we expect significant interest from delegates across Europe and beyond, and we are anxious that all those keen to attend are guaranteed their place. The full programme is scheduled for publication in December and we will keep you informed of this and other developments in the run up to the conference.
‘I look forward to meeting you next April in Paris.’
