Meeting Description

  • CASLAR is a biennial conference with the goal to bring together scholars from all over the world whose research focuses on the acquisition, development and use of Chinese as a second language to survey available knowledge in the field, exchange ideas and initiate research projects. The conference is a part of the CASLAR movement that aims to transform a field from a primarily experienced-and practice-based discipline into a discipline based on and supported by research and theory. The first CASLAR conference was held at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou in 2010, the second one was in Taipei, Taiwan in 2012, the third conference was held in Parma, Italy in 2014 and CASLAR-4 was held at East China Normal University, China in 2016.
  • Another means supporting the CASLAR movement is a new bilingual journal Chinese as a Second Language Research 漢語作為第二語言研究 published by De Gruyter Mouton; Berlin/New York. Copies of the  journal will be available at the conference. Website of the journal:
