Dear Friends and Colleagues, 

We are pleased to announce that the 30th International Conference on Chinese Language Instruction, sponsored by the East Asian Studies Program and Princeton in Beijing, will be held in-person on the campus of Princeton University, on Saturday, April 29, 2023 (detailed schedule forthcoming). 

As in previous years for our conference, we welcome proposals for presentations concerning all types of research on Chinese language learning and teaching. The conference aims to include, but is not limited to, the following themes:

Development of Materials
Culture in Language Study
Testing and Assessment
Instruction of Classical Chinese
History of Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language
Language Learning for Heritage Students
Innovative Classroom Applications of Second-Language-Acquisition Theories
Computer-Assisted/Online Language Learning
Instruction of Chinese Characters
Reflections on Post-Pandemic Chinese Instruction

The Program Committee accepts submissions of one-page proposals, in either Chinese or English (500-800 Chinese characters or 300-500 words in English), for a fifteen-minute presentation on subjects relevant to the themes listed above. Proposals must be submitted by the January 15th, 2023, deadline. Proposals will be reviewed by a committee and proposals selected for presentation will be grouped into panels according to themes.

Submit presentation proposals here:

Limited funding for travel expenses (up to $500.00 if traveling from overseas, $300.00 if traveling by airplane in North America (includes Canada), including local transportation; and up to $100.00 by automobile or train, including tolls and incidentals) will only be available to participants who present papers, one person per presentation per institution. We realize this may not be sufficient to cover the actual cost of travel, but we hope you will be able to secure additional funds from your home institution.

You will receive updates and notifications regarding the conference via email. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at [email protected].
