Meeting Description:

The Linguistics Department at the University of Zadar is pleased to announce the international workshop 'New Perspectives on Crosslinguistic Influence in Language Learning' which will be held November 15-17, 2012. This workshop is intended to bring together specialists working on crosslinguistic influence in language learning in order to discuss new perspectives and current issues in this area of research, such as the following (cf. Scott & Jarvis 2008:5):

- Studies dealing with the causes, constraints, the selectivity, and directionality of crosslinguistic influence
- Investigations on the scope and on different types of crosslinguistic influence (transfer of linguistic structures, socio-culturally shaped patterns of language usage, learning strategies, and others)
- Investigations on the implications of the insights into crosslinguistic influence for the teaching and learning of L1, L2, L3 etc. and for multiple language learning in general
- Studies dealing with the connection between crosslinguistic influence and linguistic awareness, especially with reference to third language acquisition
- Theoretical models that account for different causes, occurrences and manifestations of crosslinguistic influence; theories that explain the influence of cognitive, linguistic and extralinguistic factors in crosslinguistic influence
- Studies focusing on the development and the testing of hypotheses concerning crosslinguistic influence on the basis of theoretical models

The international scientific symposium is organized by the Linguistics Department at the University of Zadar. As the final workshop in the frame of the project 'Transfer as a Strategy in Foreign Language Learning' (http://www.transfer-in-language-learning.net/), the event is conceived as a one-time workshop. However, we hope that interesting papers and lively discussions will contribute to establishing a new tradition at the Zadar Linguistics Department.

We are pleased to announce that the following specialists will be presenting plenary talks: Ulrike Jessner-Schmid (University of Innsbruck, Austria) and Gessica De Angelis (Free University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy). 

2nd Call for Papers:

Abstract submission for the workshop 'New Perspectives on Crosslinguistic Influence in Language Learning' is now open and it closes on 15 June 2012. Registration will be open from 20 July 2012 until 30 September 2012. You can register from the following web page:


We would also like to announce that the conference fees are set. The evening reception on the day of arrival, the conference dinner, coffee breaks, the programme and the book of abstracts, as well as a guided tour of the Zadar peninsula on 17 November, are included in the conference fee.

Further information concerning conference fees, paper submission, registration, bank account etc. is available at:
