Dear CASLAR Members:

You are all invited to the CASLAR meeting to be held at 17:50, June 14th, Thursday, RH Theatre at CASLAR-5 at the University of Hong Kong where the details of a CASLAR research initiative will be discussed.

The CASLAR Association is planning to launch a research initiative (CASRI) in order to promote the development of research projects and publications on topics that are expected to significantly support Chinese language learning and teaching. CASRI aims to bring together scholars from all over the world to work together on these projects. Special efforts will be made by CASLAR to bring Chinese and non-Chinese scholars together to work on join projects. We will start CASRI with recommending to set up six research groups headed by scholars who are internationally recognized in their respective field of study. Please look at the suggested list below. The group supervisors will be responsible for accepting project proposals, initiating projects and directing projects within the group. They can invite co-directors, assistants and contributors.

All information about the research groups will be put on the CASLAR website coordinated by Dr. Zhiqi Gong (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). If you would like to join one of the research groups, please email one of the co-directors in the given group and tell about your idea and/or research. If you are not among the participants of CASLAR-5 you can still participate in the CASRI project by contacting the supervisors of the research group of your interest. However, you should wait until the project will be finalized at the CASLAR meeting and you will receive the final description of CASRI or see it on the CASLAR website.
