GLoCALL 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 sponsored by PacCALL and the local host.

The GLoCALL2018 Conference will be organised jointly with the 15th ChinaCALL Conference at the Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, Suzhou, China from 16-18 August 2018.   Scholarships for junior researchers are available.

Invitation to GLoCALL 2015 and 2017 presenters to submit papers to two special issues on CALL (Dates below)

Dear GLoCALL 2015 and 2017 presenters:

We would like to cordially invite you to submit papers for consideration for publication in the special issues as listed below. 

  1. CALL EJ
    Call for papers
    9 September 2017
    Deadline for submissions
    16 February 2018
    Publication
    August 2018
  2. International Journal of Computer Assisted language Learning and Teaching
    Call for papers
    9 September 2017
    Deadline for submissions
    30 April 2018
    Publication

Manuscripts should be submitted to pgobel@cc.kyoto-su.ac.jp as an email attachment (in Microsoft Word).  In your submission you are allowed to state your preference of journal you would like to publish in, however, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to abide by your choice as a number of factors are involved in deciding where each article should go. 

We have worked hard to get these two reputable CALL journals to publish these special issues based on our conference presentations. The fact that these issues are only open to GLoCALL 2017 & 2015 presenters means your chance of getting published in them is much higher than through normal submission channels. So don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity.

Yours sincerely, 

Editorial Team Members
