The International Conference on English Language Studies (ICELS) is an ongoing collaboration between Suranaree University of Technology (SUT), Khon Kaen University (KKU), Ubon Ratchathani University (UBU) and Mahasarakham University (MSU) in association with ASIA CALL. The conference venue rotates each year among the four host universities. These four distinguished public universities located in the Northeast of Thailand co-organize the conference to provide a platform for academics, researchers and teachers of English so that they may discuss and share experiences with fellow professionals within all sectors of English language teaching and present their academic work to a wider audience.
