Migration and integration undoubtedly belong to the most important issues discussed nationally and internationally. It is of great importance that research results are made available to individuals, groups and societies in order to contribute to a positive mutual development, both nationally and internationally. The conference demonstrates both the breadth and depth of the research on integration and migration and inspires to new research and international collaborations. This conference aims at bringing together scholars, teachers, policy makers and language education professionals to share research, insights and to discuss the issues relevant to the development of Integration, Migration and Digitalization in Europe. This includes topics such as impact of digitalization on migration and integration, national values, borders, citizenship, second language education, vocational training and digital multiliteracies, including local and global connectedness, visual, audial and spatial modes of representation. The forum of researchers, educators and the cross-cultural comparisons can be used to enhance common knowledge of what is successful integration in different countries. This kind of inside knowledge within a global framework is essential for implementing rewarding strategies for integration sought internationally in Europe. This conference seeks to get to grips with these issues in order to promote humane and sustainable integration strategies in European societies through research and cooperation between countries.
