8th International scientific conference The Linguistic, Educational and Intercultural Research 2021 (LEIC Research 2021) aims to bring together researchers, university lecturers and teachers, as well as representatives of educational institutions. We welcome participants from many countries, to provide them with an opportunity to collaborate and extend cooperation among scholars, practitioners and educators from within the Arqus European University Alliance, as well as with representatives from other universities.
The online conference will enable participants:

  • to exchange and share their research results;
  • compare experiences and best practice on all aspects of the conference themes;
  • provide renewed inspiration for their future research and teaching.

During the conference presentations and workshops are held in English. To promote multilingualism, panel sessions and interactive language cafés will be delivered in languages other than English, dependent on the languages of the delegates.

The pandemic has raised challenges for all educational institutions; therefore, the conference will encourage educators to rethink their pedagogical practices, curriculum and materials development processes and approaches to language teaching in order to bring the most recent research findings into our university classrooms.
The conference invites participants:

  • to discuss language teaching in the post-pandemic space;
  • to present the most successful ways for language teachers to address the needs of the new generation of students;
  • to promote democratic citizenship, social inclusion, and intercultural dialogue in our increasingly multicultural and multilingual classrooms.


Conference will take place  October 21-22, 2021  in a REMOTE ONLINE MODE via Zoom platform.
Responsible for monitoring the Conference in an online mode: Institute of Foreign Languages of the Faculty of Philology, Vilnius University, 5 Universiteto St., LT-01513 Vilnius, Lithuania
