Dear Colleagues

Given the current global health crisis and the associated travel and immigration restrictions, the ICLASP17:2020 organising committee has decided to postpone the conference, which was due to take place at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University in December 2020. 

We have been corresponding with our keynote speakers and it seems we will be able to transfer over much of the current program to the new dates. We hope as many of you as possible will be able to come to ICLASP17:2022 which will be held in June. Details about the updated ICLASP17:2022 will be circulated once they are available. Registration is now suspended and will open once a new call for papers has been announced. Please check back on this website regularly for latest update of the conference, or subscribe to our email updates: www.polyu.edu.hk/engl/event/ICLASP17/subscription

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope that you and your families are safe and healthy during this difficult time, and we look forward to seeing you at the rescheduled ICLASP17:2022.

Bernadette Watson
Committee Chair, ICLASP17

The 17th International Conference for Language and Social Psychology (ICLASP17) will be held at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong between 9 and 12 December, 2020.
