    Thank you so much for this list! I’m not from USA so not a TESOL member, which makes it harder to get a list of conferences. You may want to add the Canadian Association of Applied Linguistics Conference in Victoria BC (see http://www.aclacaal.org/CongACLAAn.htm)

    Hi Mauricio,

    You do a great job of updating this website. Do you have an email address that I could use to send you information on future conferences that are not listed? Some notable ones in early 2014 include the FETC tech in education conference in Orlando from Jan28-31, the 1st int’l TESOL Tunisia conference from Feb6-8, TESOL Spain in Madrid from March 7-9, and TESOL Arabia mar.14-16.

    If you’d like some help in updating the website, let me know via my email address listed below and I can start sending you some links to conferences that are not currently listed.

      Hello Tara,

      You should contact FAAPI President, Cristina Mayol (presidente@faapi.org.ar) or Vice-President, Gabriela Tavella (vicepresidente@faapi.org.ar). They could provide some info about this conference which will be held along with the 39th FAAPI Conference 2014.

    Hello,

    Thanks for this great list, it is exactly what I need to be able to plan my yearly schedule.

    I believe however that there may be a mistake in one item in your list. BC-TEAL is an organization in British Columbia, Canada, yet the conference is listed as happening in Belgrade, Serbia and he venue is listed as being in Richmond, British Columbia (an area of Vancouver). It might be worth checking the details on that conference.

    Thanks again for the work in putting this together.
