The Globalization and Localization in Computer-Assisted Language Learning (GLoCALL) Conference aims to share knowledge, research and experience on how to use computer technology to make language learning more effective and pleasant; to explore how the technology can be adapted to better meet the local needs of students and teachers, while at the same time providing global perspectives on computer-assisted language learning (CALL); and to bring the technology within the reach of local teachers who wish to develop their professionalism in CALL. GLoCALL is jointly sponsored by APACALL and PacCALL.


Change of GLoCALL 2016 conference from Istanbul to Kuwait

Dear GLoCALL members,

Due to the uncertain situation in Istanbul,  the organizing committee believes it prudent to change the venue of this year's GLoCALL 2016 conference to The Gulf University for Science and Technology, Kuwait. The dates remain the same. 

Our thoughts are with the people of Turkey and we very much hope to be able to host our conference there in the near future.  We apologize for the inconvenience we are causing and look forward to seeing you all in Kuwait.

Organizing committee, 2016
