Meeting Description:

The University of Nottingham is delighted to welcome Eurocall back to the
UK in 2011. The conference will take place on the Jubilee Campus in the city
of Nottingham and will be hosted by the School of Modern Languages and

The theme of the Nottingham conference is 'The Call Triangle: Student,
Teacher and Institution' and will seek to explore student expectations of the
role of technology in their learning, how the teaching profession embraces
new developments and the part played by the learning institution in providing
a rich learning environment for both students and staff.

Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) is an established but rapidly
evolving academic field that explores the role of information and
communication technologies in language learning and teaching. It includes
highly interactive and communicative support for listening, speaking, reading
and writing, involving extensive use of the Internet, and a wide range of
activities and initiatives in materials development, pedagogical practice, and

Research in CALL has been carried out for more than thirty years, and has
now reached a significant level of volume and maturity. It is a truly
international discipline and has led to notable improvements in the teaching
and learning of languages in secondary and higher education institutions
worldwide. It is important, however, to emphasise the interdisciplinary nature
of CALL. CALL research can be said to belong to the field of Applied
Language Studies and, in particular, to Second Language Acquisition (SLA),
itself a rapidly evolving discipline. CALL and SLA are related to linguistics
and its subdivisions: sociolinguistics, pragmatics, discourse analysis,
psycholinguistics, semantics, phonetics, and corpus linguistics.
