Call for bids to host EATAW 2017
The EATAW Board would like to invite bids from institutions that wish to host the 9th Biennial EATAW conference in the second half of June 2017. The Board will provide guidance and advice to the host as requested, based on their past experience, including guidance on wording of webpages and other texts, and the administration of the EATAW general meeting and elections. The Board will provide assistance in evaluating abstracts submitted and chairing conference sessions. Members of the Board may by agreement assist with opening and closing speeches or introduction of keynote speakers. All other management duties are the responsibility of the host.
Bids should include the following information:
The institution will be financially responsible for the conference and cannot be compensated for financial losses. At the same time, EATAW expects that the host institution will not seek to make a profit at the expense of participants. Past hosts of conferences that have made a profit have donated part of this to EATAW to be used as scholarship for members in need, but this remains at the discretion of the host. Management of any scholarships that are offered will be the responsibility of the EATAW Board.
Bids should be submitted by e-mail to John Harbord by Friday 31 January 2016, and should not exceed four pages.
With best wishes,
EATAW Conference 2015
Academic Writing in Multiple Scholarly, Socio-Cultural, Instructional and Disciplinary Contexts: Challenges and Perspectives
Tallinn University of Technology, 15–17 June
We hope all conference delegates have enjoyed safe travel home and that you are finding time for the reflection and personal writing events a great conference calls for!
We would like to extend our gratitude first of all to the organising institution and to Dr Kärt Rummel. The conference worked really well. The keynotes were rewarding and generated a lot of ideas and discussion among the delegates. The sessions, workshops, symposia were well-scheduled, making choosing somewhat easier. (We find that is often the most challenging task at EATAW conferences – choosing what to attend!). Thank you also for arranging a conference dinner in a castle!
Yet, you – the members and delegates – make the conference. Thank you all for bringing your work to Tallinn and sharing it with us!
As usual, presenters will be offered at least one publication channel for their papers should they be interested in pursuing a publication. The JoAW editor Dr. Lisa Ganobcsik-Williams and the conference chair Dr. Kärt Rummel will be communicating these options via the EATAW-list shortly.
Do enjoy summer everyone!
Yours the EATAW board
