THE MEDIUM MATTERS

The editor, associate editors and editorial board of Computer Assisted Language Learning: an International Journal (Taylor and Francis) extend a cordial invitation to attend the XVth International CALL Research Conference at Providence University, Taichung, Taiwan, May 24-27, 2012.

The series of biennial conferences was launched at Exeter University by Keith Cameron, former editor and now honorary editor. Jozef Colpaert took over the editorship in 2002, and has, since then, organized  five ‘Antwerp CALL Conferences’. Given the nature and scope of the CALL Journal (interdisciplinary and intercontinental), this year we are embarking on a new path to expanding the conference venues beyond western Europe.

Our 2012 conference will be held in a country where CALL activity is dynamic and innovative as can be seen in the contributions to the Journal. Providence University, Taichung, will offer a perfect venue, presenting a new and fascinating locale for regular attendees of the Conference, while providing enhanced opportunities for CALL colleagues in China, Japan and South-East Asia, along with Australia, to participate.

Keynote speakers will include Rick Kern (UC Berkeley) and Hsien-Chin Liou (National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan) who will introduce the conference theme: THE MEDIUM MATTERS
