Call for Papers

The Chair and members of the WorldCALL Steering Committee extend a cordial invitation to attend the 4th WorldCALL Conference, hosted by the University of Ulster at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, Glasgow, 10-13 July 2013.

You are invited to submit proposals for 30- or 45-minute presentations, courseware showcase, poster sessions, or symposia 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. Submit your proposals in the form of 300 word abstracts at http://worldcall4.org. Please direct queries concerning the proposal submission process to: proposals@worldcall.org. Any other query relating to your submission should be sent to program@worldcall.org.

Proposals shall be subjected to a blind review process to determine ranking and subsequent acceptance/rejection. Presenters will be unable to view the detailed results of this process but will be informed of their rejection or scheduling in the program by 15 January 2013.

Important dates:

  • Deadline for submissions: 15 October 2012
  • Notification of acceptance: 15 January 2013
  • Attendance confirmation: 1 February 2013
  • Early-bird Registration for accepted authors (or removed from programme): 15 April 2013

Types of Presentations and Conference Strands
Note: The Programme Committee reserves the right to accept proposals in a different category or strand.

1. Paper Presentations
Paper presentations (45-minute or 30-minute presentations) should allow 10 minutes for discussion and 5 minutes for change over.
Paper Presentation proposals should indicate the relevant strand (see list below).

  • Research Papers: Papers are invited which focus on the presentation of research undertaken in any area of CALL. There should be a clearly stated topic of investigation, supported by a rationale, which may include a brief literature review. Papers may be empirical or theoretical. The methodology should be outlined clearly, as well as the nature of actual or potential findings.
  • Research & Development Papers: Papers in this strand will focus on the presentation and critical appraisal of development of applications, courses integrating CALL, etc. They should be original and may emphasise practice rather than research. They can also report on projects (e.g. transnational, national, local, etc.).
  • Reflective Practice Papers: Papers in this strand will focus on the integration of CALL in the classroom or in distance/virtual learning environments. Reflection may take the form of evaluation or action research. These proposals must include some elements that are of relevance beyond the context of the practice presented and discussed.
  • CALL for Development Papers: Papers in this strand will focus on CALL in developing countries. Reports on challenges and new developments are particularly welcome.

2. Symposia
Symposia consist of three or four papers on a similar topic, proposed and organised by a Chair. Sessions should last for 90 minutes, with NO changeover during the symposium. Only one submission is required for the papers that make up the symposium proposal. Individual abstracts must be preceded by the symposium summary, which should include an overview of the topic, the rationale for the choice of papers, and other relevant information.

3. Courseware Showcase
Participants who are developing courseware, authoware and online application are invited to submit a proposal to showcase their work in a relaxed atmosphere conducive to informal exchanges and discussion. Presenters may also submit a proposal for a paper, which elaborates on the material presented at the Courseware Showcase (including evaluation findings, design principles and so on).

4. Posters
As standing displays are designed to draw attention to a project or area of work, a poster will usually focus on work in progress, though preliminary research or evaluation results should be presented. Posters should be succinct and to the point, easy to read and attractively designed. Applications from postgraduate students are particularly welcomed.
