Meeting Description:

Research Conference on Computer Assisted Language Learning
Providence University, Taichung, Taiwan
May 25-27, 2012

This year's theme is 'The Medium Matters'.

The editor, associate editors and editorial board of Computer Assisted Language Learning: an International Journal (Taylor and Francis) extend a cordial invitation to attend the 15th International CALL Research Conference at Providence University, Taichung, Taiwan, May 25-27, 2012.

The series of biennial conferences was launched at Exeter University by Keith Cameron, former editor and now honorary editor. Jozef Colpaert took over the editorship in 2002, and has, since then, organized five 'Antwerp CALL Conferences'. Given the nature and scope of the CALL Journal (interdisciplinary and intercontinental), this year we are embarking on a new path to expanding the conference venues beyond Western Europe.

Our 2012 conference will be held in a country where CALL activity is dynamic and innovative as can be seen in the contributions to the Journal. Providence University, Taichung, will offer a perfect venue, presenting a new and fascinating locale for regular attendees of the Conference, while providing enhanced opportunities for CALL colleagues in China, Japan and South-East Asia, along with Australia, to participate.

Keynote speakers will include Rick Kern (UC Berkeley) and Hsien-Chin Liou (National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan) who will introduce the conference theme: The Medium Matters.

Call for Papers:

You are hereby invited to present your current CALL activities, highlighting the role of the medium seen from your angle of attack: experimental/empirical research, design, evaluation or research-based and research-oriented practice.

We welcome proposals that address any of the above or related topics, as well as those involving studies of other aspects that may directly or indirectly influence the impact of the medium on language teaching and learning.

Deadline for submissions is 30 November 2011. Please send your abstract(s) and biodata to ann.aertsua.ac.be.

Notification of acceptance: 15 January 2012
Submission of full text: 15 April 2012

All full papers will be included in the official pre-conference proceeding, which will be published professionally in both an electronic form (CD) and print form with an ISBN. All contributors will also be invited to submit and publish their work at the Special Issue of 2012 CALL Journal.

Next to the invited plenaries (keynotes), the scientific committee will select four plenaries from the collection of submissions. There will also be an award for Best Presentation and a Best Graduate Student Award.
