University of Social Sciences in Warsaw, School of English, is happy to invite you to the second PL-CALL conference to be held on 5-6 June 2014 in Warsaw, Poland.

As a result, we welcome all papers in the areas of:

Virtual learning environments (VLEs)
Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC)
Personal learning environments (PLEs)

E-course design; e-material writing
Corpora in language learning

Good practices in CALL

venturing to establish, investigate and evaluate the connection between CALL theory and practice. For a balanced insight of this kind, we would be happy to have papers read by both researchers and ongoing teachers.

• Euline Cutrim-Schmid
