Special Interest Groups
(under construction)

At the IAIMTE 5 conference in Albi, initiatives were taken to establish special interest groups. Since then, other SIGs have been established.These groups will organize activities with and for the SIG members, like

1. symposia at ARLE and other conferences,

2. small scale research seminars in the year between the ARLE conferences,

3. special issues for L1-Educational Studies in Language & Literature, the peer reviewed international research journal IAIMTE/ARLE publishes since 2000.

For most recently updated information on the SIGs, please confer the SIG business reports on the SIG pages (click below).
