ALTE's 7th International Conference
Safeguarding the Future of Multilingual Assessment
22 - 24 April 2020
ALTE is delighted to work with its member Instituto Cervantes to run and host the 7th International Conference. Please visit our sponsors page to learn more about Instituto Cervantes and find out more about our sponsors for the event, to whom we are extremely grateful for their support.
ALTE's mission is to set standards of language tests and assessment, sustain diversity of languages (both spoken and signed) through our commitment to multilingualism, and maximise impact of language teaching, testing and assessment in Europe and beyond. Our seventh international conference considers how we can safeguard fair, valid and ethical practices in the light of new developments and innovations in our multilingual field.
Plenaries, paper presentations, workshops and posters will be focused around the four key strands of the conference:
While the main conference language is English, some paper presentations and workshops will be given in Spanish, French, German and Italian too.
Plenary sessions and the LAMI Forum will be simultaneously interpreted into both Spanish and International Sign Language. Other sessions will be interpreted into International Sign Language on request.
