The international CALL Research Conferences focus on the role of technology in the language learning, teaching and testing process. The 2017 conference will focus on the role of the local context of the learner :
How does the local context shape the design of our learning environment ?
How to determine the role and shape of the most appropriate technologies for our context ?
To what extent can general theories such as Constructivism, Social Semiotics, Dynamic Complex Systems and Self-Determination Theory be applied to our local context ?
How generalizable are the findings from experimental research in our context ?
How can/should we detect and formulate to what extent learners and teachers are different ?
To what extent do technologies afford context-dependent enrichment and personalization of the learning process ? What are the routines and models for doing so ?
What is the impact of context-dependency on the development and use of Open Educational Resources ?
How do publishers deal with adaptation of their content to various CALL contexts ?
To what extent can technology contribute to contextualization of the learning process ?
The context can also be discussed in connection with other current topics such as :
Tracking and logging ; learning analytics
Augmented reality ; ambient intelligence
Contributions are not restricted to research reports (full papers), but can also include recent developments or work in progress (short papers), which focuses on your context, draws from relevant literature, and serves the research community worldwide.
