Invited symposia on the topics of The analysis of learner-computer interactions and Distance learning and on-line exchanges as well as round table meetings on Teacher education and Political challenges and visions will provide forums for in-depth discussions of the conference themes and will facilitate exchanges between invited speakers and participants. The conference will be held on the University of Ottawa bilingual campus, in Canada’s national capital, April 26-27, 2012. It welcomes proposals on the teaching and learning of second and foreign languages through CALL in a wide range of contexts. In light of the venue of the conference, proposals focusing on CALL for the learning of Canada’s official languages (French and English) as well native, heritage and minority languages will be of particular interest.
