(ICLALIS 2013)
Venue: Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
Dates: 22-24 October 2013

Organised by the Centre for the Promotion of Knowledge and Language
Learning, Universiti Malaysia Sabah

Welcome to the International Conference on Languages, Linguistics, and
Society (ICLALIS 2013) in Malaysia. This conference is organised by the
Centre for the Promotion of Knowledge and Language Learning, Universiti
Malaysia Sabah (UMS), and will be held in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia)
from 22 to 24 October 2013.

Introduction:

Language plays a broad range of essential roles in society and institutions
with diverse needs, aspirations, cultures, traditions, and practices while
linguistics offers numerous approaches to the study of how communities,
groups and individuals interact or communicate with one another. To promote
the importance of language learning, facilitate our understanding of
languages, and broaden our knowledge of linguistics, we are organising the
International Conference on Languages, Linguistics and Society in Sabah,
Malaysia, which is well known for its multi-ethnic and multi-cultural
identity.

The upcoming conference will look into various issues of both global and
local concerns especially in relation to the use and learning of different
languages. This conference covers topics pertaining to applied linguistics
and theoretical linguistics in various institutional, social, and cultural
contexts. The conference also welcomes presentations based on studies
conducted from inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary perspectives,
involving research into language/s in different academic disciplines. We
hope to provide an interesting platform for researchers, academics,
instructors, language practitioners, policy makers, postgraduate
candidates, and members of the public to share knowledge and engage in
meaningful interactions.

Objectives:

We aim to (i) investigate, discuss, and exchange ideas related to the
learning and/or use of language in institutional, social and/or cultural
settings, (ii) explore the benefits of cross-disciplinary studies involving
linguistics, and (iii) examine the theoretical and/or practical
implications of new ideas, perspectives, theories, and recommendations
concerning different approaches to language teaching and/or language
analysis.
