Message from Prof. Andrew Lian, the President of AsiaCALL
I would like to express a huge vote of thanks on behalf of AsiaCALL to Conference Patron, Dean, Associate Professor Dr. Kuntida Tuwamsuk and Conference Organiser and President Assistant Professor Phiphawin Srikrai and her team of colleagues and students at Khon Kaen University, Thailand, for the huge success of AsiaCALL2013.

Our warmest thanks to all AsiaCALLers - you are all great and I appreciate your commitment to the field. Without your interest and enthusiasm nothing would be possible. We have a developing program of research and professional activities planned for the coming year!
Keep an eye here, the PhD & Research Chat page and the AsiaCALL websites for details re publication of Proceedings as well as other plans.
Once again congratulations to all and warmest good wishes.
About the AsiaCALL website
Welcome to the AsiaCALL Professional Networking site. This site replaces the previous AsiaCALL website (you will be automatically redirected here if you attempt to go to asiacall.org).
This site is a social site in the spirit of Facebook and is designed to enable people to share and discuss all activities that they engage in relating to the field of Technology-Enhanced Language-Learning (TELL) and Computer-Assisted Language-Learning (CALL).
The central communication and relationship-building structures of the site are Communities. These can be set up in a variety of ways and will enable people with an affinity for one another to grow together.
You are invited to join a Community or even to create one. Each community has its own Articles, Discussions (like a forum), Documents, Blogs, Wikis and other features. At very least you should join the Our Community group.
The Community nature of this site means that its success will depend on contributions from its members. Basically, it is the members' site and it is largely up to members to make sure that the site is successful.
Please feel free to explore the website's facilities and to make suggestions.
Features of the site
Below are some of the features of the site (in addition to its social construction, spam-resistant inter-member communication and the usual information dissemination). Some of these features may be available only if you are a registered user.
- A repository of member-contributed documents and links as well as blog entries and discussions (principally in the Document Repository community but elsewhere too).
- A live bibliography/directory of published and unpublished research and a directory of work in progress. This facility can be accessed in a self-managed mode of operation and personal bibliographies can be embedded in other websites too. For instance, you can store your information in the bibliography and display it on any number of other sites. Consult the Bibliography/Research menu item under Goodies above. This facility is offered as a way of generating an up-to-date list of research and work in progress.
- The site provides a listing of an AsiaCALL-accredited Panel of Experts and consultants in CALL/TELL. Listing as an AsiaCALL-accredited expert requires completing an application and being approved by the AsiaCALL accreditation panel. Accreditation may provide valuable professional and academic recognition and may attract requests for consultancy work or assist with academic promotion.
- The site also provides a listing of Employment, Consultancy and Research Collaboration opportunities. Access is through the Goodies menu TAB above.
Please feel free to suggest more functionalities. We hope that you will connect to lots of interesting people and have a great time.
Finally, please note that all materials, facilities and interactions involving this website are subject to the AsiaCALL Terms of Service and, beyond that, the absolute control of AsiaCALL.
