Meeting Description:

Creative Multilingualism, in collaboration with the Joint National Committee for Languages, welcomes you to the University of Pittsburgh for the international workshop, Artificial Intelligence in the World of Languages.

Digital advances are revolutionizing our linguistic landscape, our possibilities for communication, the interaction between languages, and our very identities. Language apps and other forms of language automation are increasingly impacting on language teaching, language learning, and learner motivation. Conversely, leaders in artificial intelligence are increasingly relying upon linguists and modern linguists to solve new and complex communication problems in digital contexts.

Bringing together researchers, educators, learners, and leaders in tech and AI, this one-day workshop will explore the increasing involvement of AI in the world of languages.

The Workshop will include discussion of the following topics:

- How can artificial intelligence (AI) support language learning and teaching in schools, community/supplementary schools and independent contexts?
- How can AI support motivation in language learning?
- How does AI open up the world of careers for language learners?

The Workshop will also serve as an opportunity to share and engage with the diverse expertise and experiences of the research, education, and tech sectors.

Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts for presentations (15 minutes' duration, plus 10 minutes' discussion) from researchers and professionals working in the field addressing one of the following questions:

- How can artificial intelligence (AI) support language learning and teaching in schools, community/supplementary schools and independent contexts?
- How can AI support motivation in language learning?
- How does AI open up the world of careers for language learners?

Abstracts should be a maximum of 250 words long and accompanied by a short title and up to 75 words of bio information. They should be emailed to creativemlmod-langs.ox.ac.uk by 5pm EDT on Monday May 27.


Call for Roundtable Participation:

1. ‘How can AI support Language Learning? Views from the Classroom’
We are seeking language teachers from Higher Education, schools and supplementary/ community schools to join this roundtable discussion.

2. ‘How does AI Open Up the World of Careers for Linguists?
We are seeking professionals working in the field of languages with experience of AI.

You will present your ideas on the topic for up to 3 minutes, and then take part in a discussion including audience Q&A. If you are interested in participating, please email creativemlmod-langs.ox.ac.uk with up to 250 words on your interest and experience in this area by 5pm EDT time on Monday May 27.

The workshop fee will be waived for invited speakers and roundtable participants. A small number of travel bursaries, up to a maximum of £600, will be available for invited speakers and roundtable participants.
