The Sixth of International Conference of Languages and Arts (ICLA-6)

This 6th International Conference on Language and Arts (ICLA) elevates a theme “Innovation in Language and Arts”. Innovation refers to the introduction and creation of new products, ideas, skills, and services that improve an organization or society. It is usually motivated by the desire to change the status quo (which is of course not always bad) to bring about more effective outcomes. Researchers and practitioners are believed to have put their efforts in finding ways to solve problems/ difficulties, to sustain, and at the same time enhance good practices. This conference hopes to introduce and discuss what and how innovations have been made by the researchers and practitioners in language and arts. Professionals including researchers, lecturers, teachers, and postgraduate students are welcome to share their research results and daily innovative practices and ideas which address a wide range of sub-themes provided below.
