Holding Kazan International Linguistic Summit “Contemporary linguistics: Theory and Practice” in a virtual format is a unique opportunity to present, discuss and promote the research results of leading Russian and foreign scientists in the area of linguistics and language education.
The success of the Summit will depend on our joint efforts, the ability to create a common productive and interactive academic space.
KILS 2022 PLATFORM
For online events in high definition, the KILS-2022 team uses the Microsoft Teams platform – an enterprise platform that combines chat, meetings, notes and attachments in the workspace.
All registered participants of the Summit (Russian and International) must download Microsoft Teams to their computer (laptop, smartphone). You can download it here.
All registered participants of the Summit will be sent logins and passwords to enter the Microsoft Teams system. Further, direct participants of certain Summit events (primarily section meetings) will be invited to these events by their organizers with a special video call in the Microsoft Teams system – 10-15 minutes before the start, or the link will redirect you to the meeting. Direct participation in the event gives the right not only to listen and watch the speakers, but also to ask them questions, participate in the discussion, etc.
Those Summit participants who are not directly involved in this event will be able to watch online the broadcast of this event in Microsoft Teams using the link that will be posted on the Summit website in the Program section, and ask questions to the speakers in the broadcast chat in writing.
To ensure a stable experience with Microsoft Teams, please read the Sign in and Get Started Guide.

The participants of the symposium or rather the active listeners of the symposium were bachelors and MA students – future teachers of foreign languages.
They have a word:
Sofia Shafigullina, a student in the Master's program "Teaching English in secondary and higher schools": "A great event! Everything was very interesting. Will such events be organized in the future? I don't want to miss any!"
Igor Burmistrov, a student in the Master's program "Teaching English in secondary and higher schools": "I liked everything very much. I am planning to listen to some more reports tomorrow."
We are not surprised by such answers: the diversity of the topics the speakers from different countries have offered attracts attention and arouses interest. Moreover, the fact that most of the reports have been presented today in the English language doubles this interest.
We congratulate all the participants – speakers and listeners – on the successful holding of the symposium and, of course, we look forward to new scientific events which, for sure, await us!
