Call for Papers

The IATEFL ESPSIG one-day conference in Belgrade, Serbia aims to explore the following key questions and many more based on the contribution of the presenters and delegates. We expect that our theme will bring together a diverse range of researchers and practitioners in professional, vocational and academic English to share their views, and practices which are applicable to other EAP and ESP contexts eg:

  • Key issues in ESP curriculum design
  • Developing communicative syllabus design in the EAP/ESP
  • Integrating Multimedia Computer Assisted Language Learning into an English for Specific Purposes Curriculum
  • Needs analysis in developing ESP/EAP materials
Two scholarships of 250 GBP each are offered to  two new ESP SIG members


Format of the ESPSIG International Conference:

We intend to have a more interactional mode throughout the day so that the audience is given plenty of time to interact and share their context. The format is fluid to meet the expectations of the presenters and the delegates. We welcome a variety of formats as listed below:

  • Papers: 20 minutes followed by a 10-minute discussion
  • Workshops: 45 minutes (incl. a 10-minute discussion)
  • Presentation of posters: 15 minutes followed by a 10-minute discussion
  • Forum of 3 presenters: 30 minutes presentation followed by a 10-minute discussion


Each speaker has the opportunity to present two papers.
Accepted presentations will also be published in the ESPSIG Journal.


We are looking forward to your contributions as presenters and facilitators.
