6th T-PLUS Conference titled ‘Impact of Teacher Training and Development’ was hosted by TOBB University of Economics and Technology in Ankara on 12th and 13th June, 2015.

The MGIMO Conference held in the Moscow State Institute of International Relations between 24-25 April 2015 was entitled The Magic of Innovation: New Trends in Language Research and Teaching Foreign Languages. During the conference, various issues regarding modern linguistic studies, innovative approaches to teaching students of international relations and cross-cultural communication, future experts in regional studies, linguists and translators/interpreters were discussed.

The annual EALTA conference was held at the University of Copenhagen this year. Very enjoyable it was too, although it was good to hear that the Istanbul conference of two years ago was still remembered with fondness by many of the participants.
