The ELS15 is a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary international conference that provides a multinational platform to bring together professors, researchers, and students of higher education to discuss new trends and discover the most recent research in all fields of education, language, and society. Our atmosphere is both welcoming and multicultural.
Prospective presenters are encouraged to submit proposals for papers and posters/demonstrations that offer new research or theoretical insights. Presentations should address both theoretical issues and new research findings. Topic areas are left intentionally broad to encourage a range of backgrounds, ideas, and discussions.
