Proceeding on the basis of the role played by language and its sciences in the preservation of the identity and culture of the Ummah, linguistic disciplines have achieved great successes in all theoretical as well as applied areas.
The integration between linguistics and the natural, human and technical sciences has originated new linguistic areas, and produced innovative scientific fields. Arab and non-Arab researchers have contributed enormously to the enrichment of linguistic research, and proposed new strategies for the development of linguistic studies programs in the educational institutions; a matter which helped in the reformation of curricula and linguistic studies. This resulted in the emergence of various experiences on language teaching and learning, and the appearance of modern theories in light of the society’s needs in the 21st century. This led to so many achievements and applications at the level of individuals, institutions, organizations and universities.
In pursuit of detecting such experiences, theories and curricula, and as a commitment of the Al-Madinah International University to fulfil the vow it took upon herself to disseminate the Arabic language sciences and linguistic studies, the idea of this conference came out so as to help raise issues, discuss present challenges, collect scattered works, unify visions, concert efforts, exchange ideas, overcome obstacles, present and develop solutions to persistent problems. All this will surely lead to reaching an agreement and finding a common ground that may be regarded as a starting point towards enriching the cognitive as well as the scientific arena.
