The EUROCALL 2023 Conference will be held in Reykjavik on 15-18 August 2023 as an in-person conference on campus of the University of Iceland. This conference will be hosted by three different institutes, the VIC – Vigdís International Centre, the Vigdís Finnbogadóttir Institute for Foreign Languages at the University of Iceland, and the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies. The conference starts with a workshop day on 15 August and continues with a full conference programme on 16-18 August.
The focus of this year’s EUROCALL conference is on inclusiveness of all languages, which is also reflected in the main conference theme “CALL for all languages”. We particularly welcome papers that focus on supporting and promoting indigenous, endangered, and less commonly spoken languages, but themes related to other languages and language technologies in CALL are also very welcome.
Potential themes could include but are not limited to:
- Indigenous languages and CALL
- Endangered languages and CALL
- Less commonly spoken languages and CALL
- Archaic languages and CALL
- Sign languages and CALL to help Deaf and hearing-impaired communities to learn languages
- CALL and Braille writing system to help Blind and visually impaired communities to learn languages
- Preserving, documenting, and reviving languages
- Distant learning and CALL
- Collaborative learning and CALL
- Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) in CALL
- High-tech and low-tech environments in CALL
- Learner assessment in CALL
- Teacher training in CALL
- Language management systems (LMSs) in CALL
- Synchronous and asynchronous learning
- Promoting the learning of languages with CALL technologies
- Application of theories and frameworks supporting CALL
- Language corpora and data-driven learning
- Any other theme related to CALL and language learning technologies are welcome
This year‘s conference theme is central to all co-hosting institutes, particularly, however, the Vigdís International Centre – VIC, whose research and activities focus on the promotion, preservation, awareness, and support in education and research of foreign languages and cultures. The Centre works under the auspices of UNESCO and actively participates in the United Nations International Decade of Indigenous Languages (2022 to 2023). The role of the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies is to conduct research in the field of Icelandic studies and related scholarly disciplines, in particular Icelandic language and literature, and among others also to disseminate knowledge in these fields. As such, the conference theme is dedicated to indigenous, endangered, and less commonly spoken languages in the Nordic Region, Europe, and the rest of the world, and welcomes submissions related both to the main conference theme and to other themes in the broad field of CALL.
