International Conference on Languages and Arts across Cultures (ICLAAC) is a transformation from ICEAC (International Conference on English across Cultures) that has been hosted for 8 years by the Language and Art Faculty of Universitas Pendidikan Ganesha (UNDIKSHA) in Indonesia. The Language and Art Faculty accommodates over 700 of whom are majoring in English Education, Japanese Education, Balinese education, Indonesian language Education, English for tourism diploma, Communication and Visual design and Arts. These various disciplines trigger the conference transformation. There is a high demand to include not only languages and education issues but also arts and art education issues in the conference. Thus a big theme: 'Literacy across cultures' is selected to embrace all these disciplines.
