Assalamu’alaykum Warrahmatullaahi Wabarakaatuh.
Welcome to the Eleventh Conference on Applied Linguistics (CONAPLIN 11). This conference is one of our attempts to serve as a vehicle for language teachers, researchers, practitioners, students, or even policy makers to share insights on the issue at hand and draw conclusions for future practice and studies in the field of applied linguistics. The main theme of this year’s conference is “Trends and Challenges in Applied Linguistics”. It is our hope that the conference will contribute to the development of applied linguistics and language pedagogy as a distinct body of knowledge. At the same time, it is our hope that the conference will enable the conference to be recognized internationally.
This conference provides a platform for us to disseminate and discuss our research finding. It is our expectation that the conversation from this conference will inform policy and practices of applied linguistics and English language teaching. This event will open up future research on applied linguistics and the integration of technology in English language teaching, and at the same time allowing all participants expanding their network. Hopefully, all the participants will be engaged in fruitful and meaningful discussion.
Once again, welcome to CONAPLIN 11 and I wish you all a productive conference.
Dr. Fazri Nur Yusuf
