JALTCALL 2005 Conference
''Glocalization through CALL: Bringing People Together''
Ritsumeikan University, Biwako Kusatsu Campus (BKC), Shiga, Japan, 3-5
The JALTCALL 2005 Conference focuses on the social dimension of CALL at
local and global levels, as represented by the term ''glocalization''. The
conference organising committee is specifically seeking submissions in the
- Using CALL to encourage communication between learners at the local level
- Using CALL to encourage communication between learners globally
- Collaborative CALL research projects
- Collaborative CALL learning projects
- Local-scale CALL projects with international objectives
Submissions that do not deal directly with the conference theme are also
most welcome, provided they demonstrate a sufficient level of innovation,
quality of research, or suggestions for improvement of the field. CALL
researchers from all continents and from all CALL-related disciplines are
invited to submit applications.
Director, Research Centre for New Media in Language Learning

Director, English Language Self Access Centre
University of Auckland, New Zealand
Professor Emeritus of Chiba University
Bunkyo Gakuin University, Japan
There will be four types of sessions:
A. Paper Presentations: These are expected to include empirical studies in
a given CALL environment, theoretical discussion of an issue relevant to
the field of CALL, evaluative studies of courseware in use, discussion of
policies or strategies at an institutional, regional, or national level or
assessment of potential of technological advances in the delivery of
language learning materials.
B. Show & Tell Presentations: These are expected to be a description of a
given language learning environment, piece of software, courseware or a
practical application still in the developmental stage. There is less
expectation regarding evaluation or research issues associated with the
environment than in a paper presentation.
C. Workshops: These would include practical demonstrations on how to use
various tools or ideas for CALL-based language learning environments. They
may include commercially or freely available tools, or in some cases
individually developed materials provided there is the possibility of
participants either using the tools demonstrated or developing similar
tools for their own language learning environments.
D. Posters: These generally are used for describing a work in progress, a
theory in development or a new process or idea, although submissions beyond
this scope are also welcome.
Applications for roundtable discussions, forums, bridging discussions or
commercial presentations may be made directly by email to
Submissions will be possible through the Japan Association for Language
Teaching CALL SIG website (http://www.jaltcall.org) until January 31, 2005.
All papers will be vetted by an international panel of experts in a range
of disciplines within CALL. Submissions that are thought to have potential
in concept or content but do not reach the standard expected for the
JALTCALL Conference may be recommended for resubmission based on the
comments of the vetting panel.
Deadline for submission of proposals: January 31, 2005
Deadline for resubmissions of proposals: February 28, 2005
Notification of acceptance: March 15, 2005
Details of presentation schedule: March 30, 2005
