Details for the Panel presentation


A Panel presentation is a 120-minute presentation slot for the delivery of an

academic work by a small group. It should ideally be composed of more than three

presenters or speakers who share a common topic or perspective.

Proposals of any topic will be welcome, but at JALP21, proposals related to the

conference theme, “Crossroads of language policy in Japan”, will be encouraged.

Proposals of a panel presentation may be alternatively evaluated as an oral or

poster presentation even when they are not selected as a panel. Please indicate

in the submission form if you wish so.

Selection criteria:

  • The topic and description should deal with issues that are related to the study and practice of language policy.
  • The panel should make effective use of the format as a panel presentation.
  • The theme and objective are expressed clearly.
