Key thematic strands include:
CALL for social inclusion CMC and telecollaboration Corpora and language learning Digital bi- and multi-literacies Digital game-based language learning Intelligent CALL (ICALL) Mobile assisted language learning (MALL) Natural language processing applications in CALL Open Educational Resources and practices Research trends in CALL SLA principles in CALL Task complexity in CALL Teacher education and professional development in CALL The complexity, accuracy, fluency (CAF) framework of proficiency in CALL (research and applications) Virtual Reality and gamification in language learning
We welcome proposals from researchers and practitioners working in CALL in any areas relevant - but not restricted to - the proposed conference thematic strands. The conference language is English and all proposals for Papers, Symposia, European Projects, Workshops and Posters should ideally be submitted in English.
Presentation categories include
1. Individual papers
Papers should be submitted for 30-minute presentations. This timing allows for 20 minutes presenting, 5 minutes for questions, and 5 minutes for room changes.
Three types of papers may be given:
Research: papers focusing on a clearly specified research topic supported by a rationale, including a brief literature review. The thrust may be empirical or theoretical. The methodology should be clearly outlined as well as the actual or potential findings.
Research and Development: papers focusing on the development of pedagogies, programmes and projects in technology-rich environments. The research should be original and may emphasise practice rather than research.
Reflective Practice: practice-oriented papers dealing with the integration of technologies in different contexts and for different purposes. The reflection could take the form of evaluation or action-research. Proposals should include elements that are of relevance beyond the context of the practice described
Symposia consist of three or four papers on a similar topic, proposed and organised by a chairperson, and should normally address the conference theme. Sessions last for 90 minutes, with NO changeover during the symposium. The proposal should outline the purpose of the symposium, the names and institutions of the participants, with a sentence mentioning what aspect of the main problem that each will address.
Submissions for symposia from EUROCALL SIGs are particularly welcome, with a view to promoting their work to the conference delegates and encouraging participation in the SIGs. Current EUROCALL SIGs are: Teacher Education, Virtual Worlds and Serious Gaming, iCALL, CorpusCall, Computer Mediated Communication, Less-widely Taught Languages, Mobile-Assisted Language Learning, Graduate Students, LMOOC.
3. European Projects
This year's conference will again offer a forum for the showcasting and dissemination of EU-funded projects. Each project will be allocated a 30 minute slot, including questions.
Since posters aim to attract attention to a particular project or research domain, they should mainly focus on work in progress. They may, however, report previous or preliminary findings. Posters should be clear, easy to read and attractively laid out. Submissions from advanced students are especially welcome in this category. A prize will be awarded for the best poster in two categories: PhD/Graduate student and Researcher.
5. Pre-conference workshops
A limited number of pre-conference workshops will be organized on Wednesday 28 August in the morning. They can either last for 90 minutes or 3 hours. They typically involve a hands-on session, where participants have the opportunity to become familiar with the latest developments in relevant topic areas in language teaching and learning and tools associated with these. The proposal should include the intended duration of the workshop, its main purpose, and a brief outline of topics and activities covered, as well as technical requirements.
Format of abstracts
All presentation categories require the submission of an abstract that does not exceed 500 words, excluding the title, names and affiliations. You will have to select from a list of conference subthemes when submitting your abstract, which will hopefully help us organize the programme around various thematic strands. You will also be asked to provide 3 or 4 keywords.
