2016 KOTESOL National Conference at Sangji University, Wonju May 28 (CFP deadline March 1)

May is going to be a busy conference month for me. The weekend after the English Scholars Beyond Borders Annual Conference in Taiwan I’ll be in Korea for the KOTESOL National Conference to be held at Sangji University in Wonju on May 28. I’m excited and honored to have been asked to give the Plenary address for the conference, and am looking forward to speaking on the theme of the first academic book I helped to edit, Innovating EFL Teaching in Asia.

Their call for papers is open until March 1, so if you’re looking for an end of May conference to attend, it looks to be a great opportunity. Let me know in the comments if you’re going; it’s always good to see friendly faces on the conference circuit.

English Scholars Beyond Borders Annual Conference in Taiwan in May (abstract submission deadline February 15)

I’ve written elsewhere about being a member of English Scholars Beyond Borders, and their third Annual Conference will be held in Tauching, Taiwan May 19 to 22. While I unfortunately had to miss their second conference in India last year, I’m happy to say I’ve committed to the trip this coming May. There’s going to be an interesting line up of journal editors giving Keynote presentations, which I’m particularly looking forward to.

The abstract submission deadline is February 15, so if you’re interested in a friendly, collegial conference with some really top notch scholarship to be presented, I would recommend you consider attending or submitting a presentation proposal. Also, please let me know in the comments if you’re going.

The next weekend after the annual ESBB conference will see me in Korea for the KOTESOL National Conference. I wrote a little about what I’ll be doing there here.
