研讨会介绍 Introduction

「汉语作为第二语言研究国际研讨会」(International Conference on Chinese as a Second Language Research, 简称CASLAR)为两年一次的研讨会,旨在齐聚全球研究汉语作为第二语言的习得、发展与运用的专家学者于一堂,进行汉语教学领域中知识概念以及实务经验的探究与交流,支持汉语教学领域学者间的切磋互动,期能激荡出更多学术研究计划的构想。该会议属于CASLAR运动的一部分,其目标在于使一门以实验与实践为基础的学科成为一门以研究与理论为基础的学科。第一届研讨会于2010年由浙江大学主办;第二届研讨会于2012年由台北的国立台湾师范大学主办;第三届研讨会于2014年由意大利帕尔玛大学主办。


CASLAR is a biennial conference with the goal to bring together scholars from all over the world whose research focuses on the acquisition, development and use of Chinese as a second language to survey available knowledge in the field, exchange ideas and initiate research projects. The conference is a part of the CASLAR movement that aims to transform a field from a primarily experienced-and practice-based discipline into a discipline based on and supported by research and theory. The first CASLAR conference was held at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou in 2010, the second one was in Taipei, Taiwan in 2012, and the third conference was held in Parma, Italy in 2014.
Another means supporting the CASLAR movement is a new bilingual journal Chinese as a Second Language Research 汉语作为第二语言研究 published by De Gruyter Mouton; Berlin/New York. Copies of the journal will be available at the conference. Website of the journal: http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/caslar
