Second International Workshop on Technological Innovation for Specialized Linguistic Domains: Lifelong Learning on the Move


Over the last decade, research on language teaching/learning has enjoyed an outstanding proliferation of technological applications that have redefined the field of language education, particularly in distance, blended and non-formal environments. In this context, TISLID’14 promises to be an interesting opportunity to meet and mix with fellow researchers in the active and constantly changing field of technological innovation for language education/processing.

TISLID’14 will be hosted by the ATLAS research group ( at the University of Salamanca’s campus in Ávila (Spain), 7th – 9th May 2014. This event will include keynotes, workshops, paper presentations, posters and roundtable debates, including a EUROCALL Special Interest Group (SIG) session on MALL (Mobile Assisted Language Learning). The following experts have confirmed their participation as keynote speakers:

  • Jozef Colpaert  – Designing for personalization and contextualization
  • Gavin Dudeney  – Digital Literacies: Teachers & Learners
  • John Traxler - Language, Literacy and Mobiles

The following experts will run workshops on a number of relevant topics:

  • Mª Dolores Castrillo – Building a MOOC for language learning: a research-oriented workshop
  • Nicky Hockly –Teaching with mobile devices: choices and challenges
  • Isabel Pérez – Designing CLIL materials using open educational resources and ICT tools
  • Stravroula Sokoli – Audiovisual Translation for Foreign Language Learning: new multimodal resources

The organisers welcome the submission of research papers/posters dealing with technology-supported LSP (Language for Specific Purposes), teaching/learning and processing. Topics relevant to TISLID14 include (but are not limited to):

  • Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL)
  • New Trends: Ubiquity, Gamification, etc.
  • Interaction design, Usability and Accessibility
  • Language Massive Open Online Courses (LMOOCs)
  • Open Courseware (OCW) / Open Educational Resources (OERs) for Languages
  • E-learning and Languages in Primary/Secondary/Tertiary Education
  • Computerised Language Testing and Assessment
  • ICTs for Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)
  • Distance and Lifelong Language Teaching/Learning
  • ICTs and Languages for Specific Purposes (LSPs)
  • Computational Linguistics and Corpora
  • Technological Innovation in Terminology and Translation
  • Audiovisual Translation

Researchers interested in submitting a paper/poster should send a 300-500 word abstract (with key references) in electronic format by December 15th (following the steps outlined in the conference website, at All proposals will be subject to a double-peer blind review process. Acceptance will be confirmed by January 31st.

All accepted abstracts will be published in the conference electronic proceedings (provided that their author/s send a 2500-3000 version of the paper within the deadline, which will be announced in due time). In addition, a selection of the best papers will be published as a separate research book with an international publisher. The authors in question will be required to submit an extended version of their paper (5000-7000 words) after the conference.

A ‘Best Research Paper Award’ will be given for the most significant contribution to the conference. Members of the Scientific and Organising Committee are excluded and the winner will be announced at the end of TISLID’14.

Important dates:

  • Paper submission deadline: December 15, 2013.
