Meeting Description:

Language enables all cultural and socio-economic development; paradoxically, this creates communication issues in modern multilingual/multicultural societies. With the conference theme, Promoting Language Education for Sustainable Development, echoing the overarching national concern to promote sustainable socio-economic development in Papua New Guinea, the LSPNG 2015 aims to stimulate a useful exchange of ideas between intellectuals and policy makers on language education and language-related issues.

The conference program will be posted on the LLM website by the end of April, 2015. Visit the Kivung Billboard www.langlxmelanesia.com/kivungbillboard.htm for more details.

- Prof. William Foley (University of Sydney, Australia)
- Prof. John M Clifton (University of North Dakota and SIL International, USA)
- Prof. Nick Faraclas (University of Puerto Rico)
- Mr. William Jonduo (National Literacy & Awareness Secretariat)
- Ms. Marianna Ellingson (Director General, Office of Tourism, Arts & Culture)
- James Agigo (Head of Research, Monitoriing & Evaluation Division, DoE)

Please include the title of your paper, author(s’) name(s), affiliation and contact email address of the correspondent author. Abstracts must be submitted electronically in Word format to langlxmelanesia at gmail.com.
