English Profile Networks:
Research Network in South-East Europe

Inaugural Seminar
26 - 28 September 2008
Herceg Novi, Montenegro

A two-day seminar, launching the English Profile Research Network in South-East
Europe, is taking place in Herceg Novi, Montenegro, from 26-28 September 2008.

English Profile is a collaborative programme of interdisciplinary research,
consultation and publication designed to enhance the learning, teaching and
assessment of English worldwide. It is set up to produce Reference Level
Descriptions for English, envisaged to be a core reference document for English
as a foreign or additional language linked to the general principles and
approaches of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). English Profile
is registered with the Council of Europe as part of their wider initiative
''Reference Level Description for National and Regional Languages''. 

The inaugural seminar in Herceg Novi will provide an overview of English Profile
and a chance to influence its future development. The key objective is to
identify colleagues and contacts working in the fields of English language
studies, applied linguistics, language pedagogy and assessment, etc., who are
willing to contribute to the project in a number of ways: by participating
directly in the research programme, by becoming local or regional coordinators
who will promote the project, by highlighting the specific needs of teachers and
learners of English in their country, by contributing data and insights that
will enrich the pedagogical tools that are being developed, etc.

The seminar is, therefore, aimed at establishing the network in South East
Europe, including (but not limited to) Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina,
Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, (FYR) Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania and Serbia. The
programme will include presentations from the English Profile research and
development teams, workshops and discussions. 

Confirmed keynote speakers are:
Prof Joanne Neff van Aertselaer, Complutense University of Madrid, Spain
Prof Tatiana Larina, Peoples' Friendship University Moscow, Russia
Dr Jeannette Littlemore, University of Birmingham, UK
Dr Vladimir Zegarac, University of Bedfordshire, UK.

Participation is free and further details (including the online registration
facility) are available at:
http://www.englishprofile.org/research-network-launch.html. The deadline for
registration is Friday, 4 July 2008.

On behalf of the Organising Committee,

Dr Svetlana Kurtes 
English Profile Project Coordinator
University of Cambridge, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

Dr Igor Lakic
Dean, Institute of Foreign Languages, University of Montenegro
