Dear Colleagues,

We are very excited to share the complete program for *Symposium 2016:
Supporting L2 Writing at German-Language Universities*, hosted by the
Language Center of the Technische Universität München on April 7 and 8, 2016.

This year our conference includes a fantastic lineup of workshops and
presentations by educators, academics, and professionals from universities
and institutions around the world. We’ll discuss writing and teaching
writing in English and German from multifaceted perspectives, such as new
technological approaches, peer feedback, special requirements for working
with scientific writers, internationalization and the lingua franca,
bridging the L1/L2 divide, and many others.

We also look forward to welcoming our two keynote speakers: Dr. Leslie
Sage, Senior Editor of Physical Sciences at *Nature;* and Prof. Dr.
Christian Fandrych, director of the Herder Institute at the University of
Leipzig. Their presentations, along with our Writing Summit panel
discussion, will tackle the question “What is good writing?” from a variety
of scientific, academic, and professional viewpoints.

Please visit our website <http://www.tum.de/writing-symposium-2016> to
register and for information on planning your visit to Munich. Feel free to
email me at shannon@zv.tum.de with any questions.

Thank you! We hope to see many of you on April 7 and 8!

Kind regards,
Ruth Shannon
