Every summer EUROCALL organises a major research conference, gathering CALL scholars from throughout Europe and from all over the world. EUROCALL2019 will be held at UCLouvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. Click here for more information
‘CALL and complexity’ will be the guiding thread for EUROCALL 2019. This theme is to be seen as constituting a challenge to be embraced. Languages are known to be intrinsically complex linguistically and so are the determinants of learning (additional) languages.
We believe that it is
- essential to pay tribute to providers of CALL solutions and to recognize the complexity of their task,
- important to acknowledge this complexity to ensure the provision of ad hoc CALL solutions,
- fundamental to draw both learners’ and teachers’ attention to complexity issues so that they can make the most of their learning/teaching experience.
We’ll be delighted to embrace the complexity issue collectively with the EUROCALL community!
Thematic strands include
Corpora and language learning / Data-driven learning (DDL)
Intelligent CALL (ICALL) / Natural language processing applications in CALL
Complexity, accuracy, fluency (CAF) framework of proficiency in CALL research and applications
Measuring and developing linguistic complexity in CALL
Task complexity in CALL
Digital games-based language learning
Mobile assisted language learning (MALL)
The design and practice of LMOOCs
Telecollaboration and CMC
Teacher education and professional development in CALL
Applying SLA principles in CALL
Open Educational Resources and practices
Research trends in CALL
We welcome proposals from researchers and practitioners working in any areas of relevant to language teaching and learning and to the conference themes. The conference language is English and all proposals for Papers, Symposia, European Projects, Workshops and Posters must be submitted in English. Presentations including other languages alongside English are however welcome.
Authors of accepted presentations are invited to submit a short paper (1,500 words) for publication in the online conference proceedings, and may also submit an extended version for peer-reviewed publication in ReCALL or the EUROCALL Review. Details will follow later.
