When you submit your proposal, please select one of the following options:

Research-based presentation
Includes empirical studies in a given CALL environment, theoretical discussion of an issue relevant to the field of CALL, evaluative studies of courseware in use, discussion of policies or strategies at an institutional, regional, or national level or assessment of the potential of technological advances in the delivery of language learning materials.
Length: 30 minutes including Q&A

Practice-based presentation
Descriptions of a given language learning environment, piece of software, courseware, or practical application still in the developmental stage. There is less expectation regarding evaluation or research issues associated with the environment than in a paper presentation.

As an alternative to oral presentations, submissions may also be presented as poster presentations. Poster presentations provide opportunities for extended and informal discussions with other researchers.
Length: 60 minutes

Each person may only submit one proposal as lead presenter/author. Each person may present in a maximum of two presentations or forums. Excess submissions will be deleted.
