Thursday 24 November 2016 to Saturday 26 November 2016

We are proud to announce this 3rd annual international conference, in core partnership with the National University of Science and Technology (NUST MIS&S) and the Russian Academic Excellence Initiative (widely known as the 5-100 Project). The conference will be held once again at NUST MIS&S, a leading Russian Technological university and one of the participants in the 5-100 Project, on 25–26 November 2016.

This international forum is dedicated to addressing key issues related to the teaching of English as the global language of science and education and is for ELT professionals actively engaged in or interested in learning more about ESP, EAP and EMI.

The programme will feature international speakers, panel discussions, masterclasses, workshops and poster sessions on new approaches to the teaching of English at universities.


In addition to conference sessions, participants will have the opportunity to network with a wide range of professionals in the field and learn more about topics such as the latest trends in global education in the fields of ESP, EAP and EMI, how the Higher Education sector in Russia is responding to new challenges, and how teachers are addressing big issues in the area and incorporating new ideas into their materials and daily practice.

Announcements on key speakers and a call for papers will be available on the main conference website in the near future. 

NUST MIS&S and the British Council welcome the active participation of a range of partners in this conference.

Pre-conference activities will be held on 24 November and will have a distinctive educational angle. Join us for a day of training sessions delivered by Russian and international professionals, ahead of the formal launch of the conference.

We look forward to welcoming you to Moscow for this exciting event for ELT professionals.
