The 2022 EUROCALL conference was held in Reykjavik on 16-19 August 2022 as a fully online event hosted by the Vigdís Finnbogadóttir Institute of Foreign Languages, the Vigdís International Centre, the University of Iceland, and the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies. The conference theme was Intelligent CALL, granular systems and learner data. This theme reflects the newest developments in the field of technology for language learning. Subfields such as natural language processing and machine learning not only enable smoother spoken and written communication between human learners and computers, but also offer ways in which language learning can be tailored to the needs of individual learners. By adding components of automatic speech recognition, text-to-speech systems, automatic feedback mechanisms, and tracking systems monitoring learners’ progress and their use of tools, applications are becoming better targeted. All of this is used to optimise the learning experience of individual learners.
Intelligent CALL, granular systems and learner data: short papers from EUROCALL 2022 includes 66 short papers by some of the EUROCALL 2022 presenters and offers a combination of research studies and theoretical papers reflecting the subthemes of the conference. Editors were Birna Arnbjörnsdóttir, Branislav Bédi, Linda Bradley, Kolbrún Friðriksdóttir, Hólmfríður Garðarsdóttir, Sylvie Thouësny, and Matthew James Whelpton.
