SCT-L2 2020 Postponement Announcement

IV International Conference on Sociocultural Theory and L2 Learning Postponement Announcement (Until June 2022)


It is with great regret that the Instituto de Lengua y CulturaEspañolas (ILCE) from the Universidad de Navarra has decided to postpone the IV International Conference on Sociocultural Theory and L2 Learning. This decision was taken after close monitoring of the rising global risk assessment by the World Health Organization. Although the risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus is currently assessed as low in Pamplona, Spain, and those who have registered to attend so far have been greatly anticipating this year’s conference, the global situation is changing every day in unpredictable ways. For the sake of prevention, we believe that this decision is the right one to make. We recognize the need to care for the health and welfare of our participants and of the host community, and we are also aware of the many travel restrictions that are being put in place by countries worldwide, which would limit the ability to participate for many of our attendees. 

Further information will be sent directly to attendees and will be posted on this website in the coming days. The conference will be held in Pamplona, Spain in June 2022, and a set of more specific dates will be announced later as well.


Pamplona is a hospitable and welcoming city with a wide range of leisure activities, shops and a fine dining tradition arising from the quality of Navarrese products. The city is located right in the heart of Navarre, so all of the region's charms are within easy reach.
