Call for papers
EUROCALL is a professional organization which aims to promote innovative research, development and practice in the area of Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) and Technology Enhanced Language Learning (TELL) in education and training. EUROCALL conferences bring together educators, researchers, administrators, designers of software and language learning systems, government representatives, equipment and software suppliers and other professionals involved in CALL and TELL.
EUROCALL 2010 particularly welcomes proposals concerning new trends associated with technologies that aim to incorporate networked structures and virtual communities in language learning. Proposals focusing on topics related to this area of research, development and practice will also be considered, especially those dealing with innovative uses of established or new technologies.
English and French will be the working languages. Authors will be requested to provide a version of their abstract in English after acceptance has been notified.

Presentation categories
  • 1. Individual papers
    Each speaker will have 30 minutes speaking time and 10 minutes for discussion (+ 5 minutes to change rooms). Three types of papers may be given: Research: papers focusing on a clearly specified research topic supported by a rationale, including a brief literature review. The thrust may be empirical or theoretical. The methodology should be clearly outlined as well as the actual or potential findings.
    Research and development: papers focusing on the development of applications and programs integrating CALL. The research should be original and may emphasize practice rather than research. They may also concern projects either completed or under development (European, national, local). Reflexive practice: papers dealing with the integration of ICT in the classroom or for distance learning. The reflection could take the form of evaluation or action-research. Proposals should include elements that are of relevance beyond the context of the practice described.
  • 2. Symposia
    Symposia consist of three or four papers on a similar topic, proposed and moderated by a Chairperson. Sessions last for 90 minutes with no changeover during the symposium. Only one proposal is required for these papers. Each abstract should be presented after the abstract of the symposium, which should include an overview of the topic under study, the reason for choosing the papers, and any other information relevant to the theme of the conference.
  • 3. Educational showcase
    This year’s showcase will comprise a 2-hour demonstration of learning software and other products, and will take place at the beginning of the conference in a dedicated room. The showcase may include laptop demonstrations. Exhibitors may also submit proposals for papers based on the material they demonstrate in the exhibition (including data on how it is being used, principles for developing materials, etc).
  • 4. Posters
    Since posters aim to attract attention to a particular project or research domain, they should mainly focus on work in progress. They may, however, report previous or preliminary findings. Posters should be clear, easy to read and attractively laid out. Submissions from advanced students are especially welcome in this category.
