Meeting Description:

The conference theme for LSP2017 is ''Interdisciplinary knowledge-making:
challenges for LSP research''.

The complexity of many of today’s societal challenges calls for new
methodological approaches and research questions within LSP/professional
discourse studies. We therefore believe that an LSP conference dedicated to
interdisciplinary knowledge-making is a timely undertaking.

The European Symposium on Language for Specific Purposes has for four decades
been a key venue for LSP research and an important meeting ground for
researchers and practitioners from around the world. LSP2017 offers the
possibility to discuss the challenges and opportunities of LSP with an
international audience and learn about cutting edge research within a range of
topics such as domain-specific language, specialized translation, professional
communication within businesses, organisations and academia, terminology and
related technology, corpus studies, language policies and related
socio-cultural issues.

Keynote Speakers:

Kjersti Fløttum, University of Bergen, Norway
Maria Teresa Musacchio, University of Padova, Italy
Paul Thompson, University of Birmingham, UK
