GLoCALL deadline approaching! (Vietnam, Nov. 2007)
- Dear Colleagues,
The deadline for GLoCALL presentation proposals is just around the
corner -- July 1, 2007. See http://glocall.org for complete details.
*Time & Location
November 2-4 GLoCALL - Hanoi
November 5-7 GLoCALL - Ho Chi Minh CIty
GU YueGuo, Beijing Foreign Studies University
Deborah Healey, Oregon State University, U.S.A.
Scott Windeatt, Newcastle University, U.K.
Stephane Charitos, Columbia University, U.S.A.
Andrew Ross, Brown University, U.S.A.
*State of the Art & Practical Presentations solicited!
For those who plan to participate in both locations, you may repeat
your presentation or give different ones. In fact, we do hope that you
will considering doing more than one -- one on your current area of
research and another to introduce some simple aspect of technology, be
it how to use Excel for grading, making use of Powerpoint for language
practice activities, or how to use your favorite web site in a
creative way. Rest assured that the local participants will be eager
to hear your ideas.
*Cheap lodging space limited. Register soon!
Hanoi University will be making their Guest House facilities
available to the first 40 participants who apply at an incredibly low
price. The inexpensive hotels near the RETRAC site in Ho Chi Minh City
have limited capacity, so make your reservations early if you would
like to stay cheaply within walking distance to the conference site.
You can register for the HANU Guest House and view other lodging
information now on the http://glocall.org site.
*Making Time for Sightseeing
For those who can attend in both locations, rest assured that there
will be sufficient time to take in the local attractions. There is
only an evening workshop scheduled on the first day in each location,
so you may use those days for sightseeing if you don't want to help
out with the workshops. Since there will be some repetition in the
scheduling, this will also allow you some additional free time.
We look forward to seeing many of you there in November!
Tom Robb. President, PacCALL
