Welcome to the GAL e.V.’s Conference at the European University Viadrina!

In 2015, the third GAL e.V., the German Association of Applied Linguistics (Gesellschaft für Angewandte Linguistik e.V.) conference will take place at the European University Viadrina. We are very pleased to be able to welcome you to the twin cities of Frankfurt (Oder)-Słubice this year, a special area where language and intercultural encounters are commonplace!

By way of German-Polish cooperation with the Polskie Towarzystwo Lingwistyki Stosowanej (PTLS), one focus of the 2015 GAL Conference is on multilingualism, particularly in border regions.

This website will provide you with all the relevant information regarding the conference itself (e.g. Call for Papers, Agenda…) as well as its location (e.g. directions, leisure program).

Please consider that the deadline for the abstracts' submission has been expired on 8th of June 2015. However, you can still register to participate in the conference at any time until 6th September 2015.

If you have any questions or simply need more information, please do not hesitate to contact us at

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
