Meeting Description:

Research in Intelligent Computer-Aided Language Learning (ICALL) integrates
natural language processing into a computer-assisted language learning
environment. For such research to be innovative, successful and sustainable, it
arguably needs to combine linguistic modeling, second language acquisition
research and insights from foreign language didactics with representations and
computational linguistic algorithms capable of integrating the information from
these models.

Conference Announcement

iicall2 2007
Interfaces of Intelligent Computer-Assisted Language Learning
University of Waterloo, 7-8 December 2007

The current state of the art in the various relevant fields seems favorable for
interdisciplinary ICALL research. Complementing the focus on communication and
culture in foreign language teaching since the 1960s, second language
acquisition research since the 1990s has clearly established that awareness of
language constructions, forms and meanings, rules and principles can facilitate
the successful acquisition of a foreign language. At the same time, most
research groups currently lack the interdisciplinary orientation, background, or
ties needed to develop and combine the linguistic and learner/cognitive modeling
with computational processing, and to develop and test intelligent tutoring
systems as part of real-life language teaching.

The iicall2 will explore these interfaces of ICALL. Information about the
conference is available at http://www.purl.org/i-call.

The conference starts with an invited workshop by Roy Lyster on
''Classroom-based research on proactive and reactive approaches to form-focused
instruction'' (Friday 7 Dec, 2pm). Regular papers are given on Saturday.
