What are GLoCALL conferences about?

GLoCALL conferences have been held annually since 2007 in various countries across the Asia Pacific region. They are normally organised by PacCALL together with local host(s).

The GLOCALL Conferences aims to share knowledge, research and experience on how to use computer technology to make language learning more effective and exciting; 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 Technology in Language Learning (TELL); and to bring the technology within the reach of local teachers who wish to develop their professionalism in CALL.


GLoCALL 2023 Conference and China’s 2023 International Conference on CALL jointly invite proposals for presentations to their conference at Inner Mongolia Normal University, Hohhot, Inner Mongolia from 10th-12th August 2023 . Presentations should be related to computer-assisted language learning (CALL), technology-enhanced language learning (TELL). Presentations on the use of technology in learning in general will also be considered.
