Computer-assisted language learning (CALL)
Mobile-assisted language learning (MALL)
Computer-based language assessment
Emerging technologies for language learning and teaching
Evaluation of existing technologies for language learning and teaching
Theoretical foundations of technology enhanced language learning (TELL)
Technical applications of TELL
Development of TELL
Assessment of TELL
Blended learning and TELL
Online teaching tools and platforms
Socio-educational perspectives and implications of TELL
TELL in multimodal environments
Teachers development and TELL

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings to be published as a volume of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (EI compendex).

Submissions must not exceed 10 pages in LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) format, excluding references (up to 2 extra pages). We encourage authors to cite related work comprehensively, and when citing conference papers please also consider to cite their extended journal versions if applicable.

All submissions must be in PDF format. Authors should avoid the use of non-English fonts to avoid problems with printing and viewing the submissions. All accepted papers MUST follow strictly the instructions for LNCS Authors. Springer's LNCS site offers style files and information.

There are two tracks for the workshop:

1. Regular Papers: 8 -10 pages

2. Short Papers: 4 - 6 pages

Submissions must not have been published previously and must not be under review for publication while being considered for ETLL. This applies also to papers with significantly overlapping contributions. Authors are advised to interpret these limitations strictly and to contact the PC chairs in case of doubt.

ETLL submissions are reviewed following the single blind review process, meaning, you need not hide authors' names and affiliations.

Each accepted paper must be accompanied by at least one full registration regardless of the status of the registering author, and an author must present the paper at the conference. Otherwise, the paper will be removed from the proceedings and LNCS digital library.

The submission site is:
