International
Conference on Language and Health Care, to be held at the University of
Alicante
(Spain) on the 24th, 25th and 26th October 2007. The main topic of the
Conference will be the study of language in the context of health sciences
and
health care: interdisciplinary perspectives. The main aim of this

which deals with language from an interdisciplinary point of view, is to
explore
and analyze the contribution which can be made to a better understanding of
health sciences by linguistics and language analysis.

The Conference is organized by the Instituto Interuniversitario de Lenguas

research, teaching and services run jointly by universities of the Valencian

Community and dedicated to theoretical and practical issues in applied
modern
languages, also known as professional and academic language. IULMA's
