Meeting Description:

We would like to invite you to the international conference, 'New Dynamics
of Language Learning: Spaces and Places - Intentions and Opportunities.
The conference will be held in Jyväskylä, Finland, on June 6-9, 2011. The
event will also serve as the university's 29th Summer School of Applied
Language Studies. It will be hosted by the Department of Languages, the
Centre for Applied Language Studies, and the Language Centre of the
University of Jyväskylä. The conference will offer new insights into the
learning and teaching of languages, acknowledging the complexity and
dynamism of the processes involved (including motivation), the multiplicity of
contexts where learning can take place nowadays (in school, out-of-school,
across spaces) and the key role learners play as agents in what they
eventually learn or do not learn.

Call For Papers

Keynote speakers include
-Zoltán Dörnyei (Psycholinguistics), University of Nottingham, UK
-Gráinne Conole (e-Learning), Open University, UK
-Constant Leung (Educational Linguistics), King's College, London, UK

The conference programme will consist of plenary talks, invited workshops,
and parallel paper and poster sessions. Participants can also propose a
thematic or symposium session, consisting of 3-4 presentations or a panel.
The language of the conference is English, but we encourage the use and
visibility of other languages in bi/multilingual handouts, slides, etc. To
submit a paper or poster abstract, or a symposium proposal please go to
the conference website at https://www.jyu.fi/en/congress/newdynamics2011/
and follow the instructions (to be provided shortly). The closing date for
submissions will be January 15, 2011. Notification of acceptance (or
rejection) will be given by February 26, 2011, after the proposals have been
reviewed. If you have any further queries please contact us by email at

We look forward to seeing you in Jyväskylä in June 2011!
