Subject: 6th International Conference on Language and Development
As participants in the 5th Language and Development
Conference in Cambodia I thought you might like news about the 6th in
series which is to be held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan in October 2003.
We announced the Conference a couple of weeks ago on
e-lists and have had a large number of enquiries from around the world.
Hopefully the event will be truly international and build on the
of Phom Penh.
I very much hope that you will be able to attend the
Conference yourself and experience this fascinating country. I would
appreciate it if you could publicise the event among your colleagues
also be interested.
