Building Bridges from Business Languages to Business Communities

Call For Proposals

The Centers for International Business Education and Research (CIBERs) are pleased to announce the Call for Proposals (CFP) for sessions at the 2012 CIBER Business Language Conference hosted by The University of North Carolina CIBER in Chapel Hill, March 21-23, 2012. The theme for this year’s conference isBuilding Bridges from Business Languages to Business Communities and calls for an exchange of ideas on how foreign language educators can best assess and meet the current and future linguistic and cross-cultural needs of professionals operating in diverse and global environments. While new lines of research and new teaching techniques in Languages for Specific Purposes will be discussed more generally, this year's topic will also address linkages from education to business communities and innovations in experiential education. The online proposal submissions are due November 1st, 2011. Please find the CFP at http://www.ciber.unc.edu/cblc/

As part of the conference, we will hold a Showcase of Experiential Business Language Programs. If you are interested in showcasing an innovative program that can serve as a model for emulation and would like to share best practices in reaching out to business communities, please submit the online form for the Poster Session, which can also be found under the CFP at http://www.ciber.unc.edu/cblc/

On the conference website, you will also find the agenda and exciting plenary sessions, including a special keynote address at 5.30pm on March 21st by Robert Lane Greene, former linguist, and now reporter for The Economist and author of "You Are What You Speak.”

We are looking forward to receiving your proposals and seeing you in 2012 at UNC in Chapel Hill!
