  • Using CALL to encourage communication between learners at the local level
  • Using CALL to encourage communication between learners globally
  • Collaborative CALL research projects
  • Collaborative CALL learning projects
  • Local-scale CALL projects with international objectives
Submissions that do not deal directly with the conference theme are also most welcome, provided they demonstrate a sufficient level of innovation, quality of research, or suggestions for improvement of the field.
