It is with great delight that we are able to announce that the ISOCTAL conference (International Symposium on Chinese Theoretical and Applied Linguistics), initiated on 12th-15th December 2015 Newcastle University, under the vision of Professor Martha Young-Scholten and Dr William van der Wurff, is to become a biannual event. The continuity is owing to the great contributions of Dr Shenai Hu, Giorgio Arcodia and Maria Teresa Guasti, who are to hold ISOCTAL 2 on 14th-16th December, 2017, at the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy.
The website for the forthcoming conference is now available online and the ISOCTAL-2 call for papers is now accessible. If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact Dr Hu by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The ISOCTAL- 2 organizers will be looking forward to your contributions to the Chinese theoretical and applied linguistics studies and expecting your presence at the fascinating city of Milan, Italy in due course.
