In Kyoto, more than 400 participants enjoyed around 160 presentations by lecturers such as David Hill, William Grabe, and Paul Nation.

Next year's congress will be a two-day gathering of scholars, educators, writers, and publishers for the purpose of discussing and promoting the theory and practice of extensive reading in second-language education. Topics to be addressed include internet & e-media, rating scales & progress measurement, non-linear reading, and many other interesting fields. Presentation submissions will open on December 1st 2012.
