EUROCALL Community message July 2020
Dear EUROCALL Community,
We all are very disappointed, not least our colleagues in the University of Copenhagen, that we cannot meet together in person at EUROCALL this August. However, the good news, as you know, is that we are able to gather on-line, and continue to consider and celebrate excellent scholarly work in the world of CALL through keynotes, workshops and meetings of our Special Interest Groups. We are not going to let the COVID-19 pandemic defeat us!
And there is further good news. As well as these activities, there is an opportunity for all those who have had a poster or paper accepted to make it available online for the Gathering. And we are delighted to say that, thanks to the efforts of Research Publishing, we will be publishing an on-line volume of Short Papers later in the year. The papers accepted for EUROCALL this year are of high quality, so we look forward to having the opportunity to hear them in August and see them in print later in the autumn. Make sure you take advantage of this opportunity to share your work!
Thank you to all those who have already subscribed to EUROCALL. Please, if you have not yet done so, take out your EUROCALL membership in order to attend the Gathering event in August. Instructions on how to do so at the reduced 65 euro rate can be found below:
- Please visit the EUROCALL website to subscribe. You will find the membership join page here: https://www.eurocall-languages.org/site/subscribe_form.php
- Simply select the retired option at 65 euro. Complete the registration form and put an X in any of the boxes that are not applicable to you. The 65 euro button states that it is for ‘retired’ members but for the EUROCALL Gathering event in August we are opening this rate to all those who wish to subscribe. Please note - There is not a separate button to select for the Gathering rate.
- Follow the process through to payment.
Lastly, if you are joining us for the event in August we would like you to complete this form to show your whereabouts in the world. This will give us all a more visual picture of the location of our EUROCALL community.
Stay safe and well.
On behalf of President Mirjam Hauck and the EUROCALL Executive Committee.
