Call for papers

The Bandung International Conferences on Language & Education – jointly organised every two years by Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB), the British Council in Indonesia, and the University of Leeds (UK) – explore issues of topical concern to language specialists and language educators.

Specifically, the Eleventh Bandung International Conference on Language & Education or BICOLE, which will be conducted from 18-20 July 2016, focuses on Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Language Studies. It does this through five sub-themes: 

  • E-learning and teaching (What are the benefits and drawbacks of using ICT to learn and teach languages?)
  • Social media in learning and teaching (Do social media really have a role to play in language studies?)
  • Corpus analysis and the language curriculum (How can corpus-based analysis give us a better understanding of the language which we are studying or teaching?)
  • E-teacher development (Can teachers’ competences be developed through ICT? How?)
  • Online language testing (We are already familiar with online IELTS and TOEFL. What are the limitations and strengths of online language testing?)  

The Conference organisers invite abstracts of papers (45 minutes) or workshops (90 minutes) or posters from: 

  • language teachers in schools and universities
  • teacher educators
  • curriculum designers
  • language testing specialists
  • education administrators and managers
  • policy makers
  • researchers
  • and anybody else who is concerned with issues relating to Information and Communication Technology.

  • 31 May 2016: Announcement of accepted proposals
