    The IConMAME 2019 conference aims to bring together academics from around the world to report on their various research work related to multilingual acquisition and multilingual education. As multilingualism is gaining momentum in this globalised world, especially in the Asian context, we hope that through the IConMAME 2019 conference we can promote Hong Kong as a hub for academic exchanges and collaborations in the area of multilingual acquisition and multilingual education.
