The UGhent research groups Intercomm and Lang+ are pleased to announce they will be co-
hosting a conference entitled Multilingual perspectives on professional discourse in Europe, 
which will take place at Ghent University, Belgium on 10-11 September 2015. The topical and 
methodological scope of this conference has been kept as wide as possible, though a number 
of foci of attention have been included. The communicative context will be restricted to 
Europe and main topics include multilingual internal and external, written or oral 
communication in organizational and institutional settings (meetings, hearings, emails, press 
releases, annual reports, etc.). 

Specific attention will be paid to:

- Multilingualism and identity construction in a professional context
- Multilingualism and enactment of power in a professional context
- Speech act realizations in multilingual professional settings
- Change management communication in multilingual professional settings
- Localized financial reporting from a multilingual perspective
- Language policy in international organizations
- Science communication in multilingual professional settings
- (interpreter mediated) service encounters in multilingual settings
- Public service interpreting 

The conference is open to a variety of theoretical and (multi-)methodological approaches, 
such as ethnographic, sociolinguistic, (intercultural and cross-cultural) pragmatic and corpus-
based approaches. 

Keynote Speakers:

- Yves Van Vaerenbergh: 
- Srikant Sarangi: http://www.cf.ac.uk/encap/contactsandpeople/profiles/sarangi-
- Celia Roberts: 
- Anne Kankaanranta: http://centerforinterculturaldialogue.org/2011/03/02/anne-

Call for Papers:

We welcome papers on any of the subjects listed above or on any other topic related to 
professional communication in Europe from a multilingual/intercultural perspective. We

and discuss the merits and flaws of data triangulation and/or focus on practical applications. 

Presenters will be allowed 20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for questions and discussion. The 
working languages of the conference will be English and French.
