Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the 31st International Conference on Chinese Language Instruction, sponsored by the East Asian Studies Program and Princeton in Beijing, will be held on the campus of Princeton University, on Saturday, April 27, 2024 (detailed schedule forthcoming).

In addition to the conference is an international Roundtable Discussion on Curriculum Design and Pedagogical Practice in the afternoon of Friday, April 26. Chinese language instructors and scholars are welcome to participate and interact with colleagues from across the field. 

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:

Chinese Linguistics Studies
Teaching Material Development
Pedagogical Practices
Testing and Assessment
Technologies in Language Teaching
Teacher Training
Curriculum Design and Program Development

The Program Committee accepts submissions of one-page proposals, in either Chinese or English (600-800 Chinese characters or 400-500 words in English), for a twenty-minute presentation on subjects relevant to the themes listed above. Proposals must be submitted by the January 15th, 2024, 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].
