As chairman of the Visible Conference on Education and Applied Linguistics (VESAL), I have the honor to welcome you on behalf of the 9th VESAL Conference which will be held on April 27-28, 2018 at Ishik University Education Faculty Building in Erbil, Iraq.
The heuristic and reality of an international academic conference, in which people engage with each other to discuss the latest research, test ideas, and take part in rigorous and challenging debates, has never been more important. One of the missions of Ishik University, Education Faculty is to promote international exchange, to facilitate intercultural awareness, to encourage interdisciplinary discussion and to generate and share new knowledge, and we encourage you, as academics working throughout the world, to forge the friendships and working relationships with your fellow delegates in pursuit of the research synergies that drive positive change.
It is in this spirit of friendship and international cooperation, and with the expectation of your active participation, that I express my warmest regards to you.
