Organizer update: Regarding the fee structure, this is a particularity of many academic conferences where institutions will only sponsor their staff if they are accepted to speak, as opposed to simply attending. Besides, these registration fees are very low in comparison to the majority of other similar conferences around the world. 

One thought on “Conference – V International Seminar on English and ESP Lexicology and Lexicography: The Words of the Law, Alicante, Spain

  1. This sounds like it will be an interesting seminar.
    I have to question the fee structure, however:
    “Fees
    Contributors: €80, Deadline: March 15th 2018
    Attendees: €30, Deadline: April 23rd 2018”

    I would have expected that contributors would pay less than those attending. No doubt contributors expect the same!
