September 9-11 1999

Conference on

This will be the eighth biennial conference to be held in Exeter on
Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL). Previous conferences have
allowed not only experts in the field, but all interested parties, to meet
and discuss problems and progress in CALL in a relaxed atmosphere. Many of
the papers have been published in Computer Assisted Language Learning. An
International Journal (Swets & Zeitlinger), and bear witness to the weighty
discoveries and research into this important area of modern education. If
we are to work together and share our knowledge, an occasion such as the
next conference provides a wonderful forum for us to do so.

The estimated cost, with en-suite accommodation in the new Postgraduate
Centre, centrally situated on the University campus, for full board,
Conference fee and a copy of the Proceedings is 140 pounds sterling - 95
pounds for non-residents.

Proposals (c.100-150 words) are invited by February 28 1999 for papers (25
mins) on any aspect of CALL, but, in particular, topics dealing with CALL
and Learning in the Community. Papers will hopefully lead to submissions to
the journal, Computer Assisted Language Learning.
