Meeting Description:

We would like to invite you to the international conference, 'New Dynamics
of Language Learning: Spaces and Places - Intentions and Opportunities'.
The conference will be held in Jyväskylä, Finland, on June 6-9, 2011. The
event will also serve as the university's 29th Summer School of Applied
Language Studies. It will be hosted by the Department of Languages, the
Centre for Applied Language Studies, and the Language Centre of the
University of Jyväskylä. The conference will offer new insights into the
learning and teaching of languages, acknowledging the complexity and
dynamism of the processes involved (including motivation), the multiplicity
of contexts where learning can take place nowadays (in school,
out-of-school, across spaces) and the key role learners play as agents in
what they eventually learn or do not learn.

Keynote speakers include
-Zoltán Dörnyei (Psycholinguistics), University of Nottingham, UK
-Gráinne Conole (e-Learning), Open University, UK
-Constant Leung (Educational Linguistics), King's College, London, UK

Call For Papers

The conference programme will consist of plenary talks, invited workshops,
and parallel paper and poster sessions. Participants can also propose a
thematic or symposium session, consisting of 3-4 presentations or a panel.
Any of these can address issues related to the conference themes (see
above) or in general to:

-Pedagogic practices in dynamic settings
-Multilingual learning contexts
-Emerging learner contexts and communities
-Learner/teacher contributions and identities
-Promoting change in language education

To submit a paper or poster abstract please go to the conference website
and follow the instructions under Submission of abstracts. To submit a
symposium proposal, please contact the organizers to find out about the
procedure. Notification of acceptance (or rejection) will be sent by e-mail
by February 26, 2011.
