Call for papers

The conference offers a chance for teachers of any language to share their ideas and research results with colleagues. However, for the sake of mutual understanding, English or Japanese would be preferred as the language of presentation. Although papers about topical themes, such as active learning, e-learning, plurilingualism, and the CEFR, are encouraged, presenters should not feel restrained.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of JALT OLE SIG, a special publication of the papers presented at the conference is being considered.

Proposals should be between 150-250 words in English or in Japanese.

Presentations last 30 minutes. Projector is available with VGA connection on site. Presenters should bring their own adapters.

A limited number of workshops will be scheduled for Friday afternoon, September 15th, 2017. Proposals for workshops should state the time needed for the workshop (45, 60 or 90 minutes).

Deadline for proposals: Midnight, June 17th, 2017.

Please send proposals to:

Notifications of acceptance of proposals will be sent by e-mail during the first week of July.
