1. Individual papers
Papers can be submitted for either 45 minute presentations or 30 minute presentations.
For 45 minute presentations, 30 minutes will be allowed for speaking, 10 minutes will be allowed for discussion and 5 minutes for room changes.
For 30 minute presentations, 20 minutes will be allowed for speaking, 5 minutes will be allowed for discussion and 5 minutes for room changes.
Three types of papers may be given:
Research: papers focusing on a clearly specified research topic supported by a rationale, including a brief literature review. The thrust may be empirical or theoretical. The methodology should be clearly outlined as well as the actual or potential findings.
Research and development: papers focusing on the development of applications and programmes integrating CALL. The research should be original and may emphasize practice rather than research. They may also concern projects either completed or under development (European, national, local).
Reflective practice: papers dealing with the integration of ICT in the classroom or for distance learning. The reflection could take the form of evaluation or action-research. Proposals should include elements that are of relevance beyond the context of the practice described.
Symposia consist of three or four papers on a similar topic, proposed and moderated by a Chairperson. Sessions last for 90 minutes with no changeover during the symposium. Only one proposal is required for these papers. Each abstract should be presented after the abstract of the symposium, which should include an overview of the topic under study, the reason for choosing the papers, and any other information relevant to the theme of the conference.
3. Educational showcase
This year’s showcase will comprise a 2-hour demonstration of learning software and other products, and will take place at the beginning of the conference in a large dedicated room. It will be followed immediately by the Welcome Reception. The showcase may include laptop demonstrations. Exhibitors may also submit proposals for papers based on the material they demonstrate in the exhibition (including data on how it is being used, principles for developing materials, etc).
Since posters aim to attract attention to a particular project or research domain, they should mainly focus on work in progress. They may, however, report previous or preliminary findings. Posters should be clear, easy to read and attractively laid out. Submissions from advanced students are especially welcome in this category.
Proposals for Papers, Symposia, Courseware Exhibition or Posters should be submitted online via the web-based submission process by 15 February 2011. To submit a proposal, please use the link below and follow the instructions carefully.
The online abstract submission system has been developed using MyReview, an open source programme. Complete the form and submit your proposal. An e-mail acknowledging receipt will automatically be sent to you. You will be given a paper id and password which will allow you to access your submission for any necessary editing. All changes made by an author will always be confirmed immediately in an e-mail sent to the contact author.
Format of abstracts
All presentation categories require a submission of an abstract that does not exceed 500 words, excluding the title, names and affiliations. You will have to select from a list of conference subthemes (topics) which will allow us to place your paper in the appropriate strand. You should provide 5 or 6 keywords too that will also help us place your abstract into the appropriate category. You can type your abstract directly onto the online form or paste a previously edited text. Plain text should be used. Do not use any formatting elements (bold or italics, bullets, list elements, symbols, borders, lines, etc.) The abstract system does not accept charts, tables, graphics or photos, only plain text abstracts can be submitted.
Before adding your abstract to the system, it is advisable to check the number of words and typing errors using a word processor.
Abstract title must not exceed 255 characters including spaces.
Main title not capitalised, maximum length: 255 characters
Name of author(s) not capitalised
