Language Academy of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) is calling on academicians, educators, language practitioners and professionals, teachers and teacher trainers, undergraduates and post graduates, government agencies, corporate bodies, and non-governmental organizations to submit abstract for paper presentations for its 9th international conference on Language for Specific Purpose (LSP) and 6th Global Advances in Business Communication (GABC).

LSP-GABC 2014 is a conference that serves as a platform for the discussion of research findings and dissemination of information on research trends, usage, and teaching and learning of language for specific purposes and business communication. The medium used, be it English or any other languages would be the key that opens and stimulates the minds of the participants and presenters of the conference. The gathering would enable attendees to be stimulated to write, research, and discuss with others from all over the world who are interested in the field of language for specific purpose and communication.

Previous LSP-GABC conferences have also helped to equip students and individuals working in the public and private sectors with the various views and perceptions on language and communication competency required to cater to the professional demands. As a continuation of such an effort, interest and requirement/need to train and to produce professionals who are fluent in the various science and technology fields call for such gathering.

The 2 ½-day conference is to be held from 27-29 May, 2014. We aim to bring together expertise and practitioners in academia, industry and government sector to share and present their latest findings in LSP-GABC that is related to the conference theme: “Language, Society and Practices- Getting along by Communicating”. Hoping to maintain the conference as one of the most prestigious events in the region, we therefore, invite individuals and organizations to participate in the LSP-GABC 2014.

The conference will also feature Professor Ken Hyland, Chair of Applied Linguistics and Head of the centre for Applied English Studies, The University of Hong Kong, as a keynote speaker for LSP. Keynote speaker for GABC will be featured by Professor Dr. Srikant Sarangi, professor in Language and Communication and Director of the Health Communication Research Centre at Cardiff University.
