Writing 2004

September 20-22, 2004, 
University of Geneva, Switzerland


Following successful recent meetings in Padova, Paris, Freiburg, Utrecht, Barcelona, Poitiers, Verona and Stafford, we are pleased to announce that the ninth EARLI SIG Writing conference will be held on September 20-22, 2004, at the University of Geneva, Switzerland. Geneva's international atmosphere and lakeside location make it a welcoming venue for the Writing 2004 conference.

EARLI SIG Writing is a special interest group of the European Association for Research on Learning and Instruction.  Its members come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, including education, psychology, linguistics, computer science, rhetoric and literary studies. The aim of the conference is to promote interaction among researchers who are interested in understanding the cognitive, social and developmental processes involved in writing, who are concerned with designing writing instruction in various educational settings, or with exploring the functions of writing in different social and institutional contexts.  The scope of the conferences has typically been very broad, and we hope to draw together once again a wide range of researchers and professionals in the area of writing.  We would therefore welcome submissions investigating the basic cognitive and social processes involved in writing, as well as research on the forms that writing instruction takes in specific contexts, and on the variety of purposes which writing can serve. We anticipate a dynamic and diverse meeting, and look forward to meeting old friends and to welcoming new ones.
