The 8th New Directions Conference 2020

Given the change in our conference delivery mode, we are extending the Call for Papers until 31 May 2020. 
This is primarily to give potential presenters the opportunity to submit works-in-progress to the additional sub-theme strand and for others almost ready to submit an opportunity to consider how remote presentation might appeal to them. 
If you have already submitted a proposal, there is no need to resubmit; if you wish to do so, or submit under the new sub-theme, you are welcome to, of course.

Date: Late October / Early November (exact dates to be confirmed)

Call for Widening Participation

The EUROCALL 2020 conference theme is CALL for Widening Participation

The theme embraces the role of CALL in addressing the challenges and opportunities of a learner population that continues to diversify across educational and cultural contexts.  The theme also encompasses the role of CALL in widening access to informal language learning – in the (virtual) classroom, on the move, in the wild, thus widening the notion of the learning environment.
