Special Interest Groups

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

  • symposia at ARLE and other conferences,
  • research seminars in the year between the ARLE conferences,
  • special issues for L1-Educational Studies in Language & Literature, the peer reviewed international research journal ARLE publishes since 2000.

  • For most recently updated information on the SIGs, please confer the SIG business reports on the SIG pages.
