Call for Papers
2005 volume of the AAUSC

Title: Computer-mediated Intercultural Foreign Language Education

Co-editors: Julie A. Belz (Penn State) and Steven L. Thorne (Penn
State)
Series editor: Sally Magnan (University of Wisconsin, Madison)

Description of Volume: This volume provides a state-of-the-art
overview of telecollaboration, the application of global computer
networks to foreign (and second) language learning and teaching in
institutionalized settings. In telecollaborative partnerships,
internationally-dispersed learners in parallel language classes use
internet communication tools such as email, synchronous chat, threaded
discussion, video-conferencing, web logs (blogs), web telephony and/or
video-chat in order to support social interaction, dialogue, debate,
and intercultural exchange with expert speakers of the respective
language under study. The underlying rationale is to provide the
members of each of the parallel language classes with access to and
engagement with age peers who are expert speakers of the "foreign"
language under study. In sum, telecollaboration is characterized by
institutionalized computer-mediated intercultural communication for
the purposes of foreign language learning and the development of
intercultural competence.

The aim of the Society is ''to promote interaction between
philosophers and psychologists on issues of common concern''.

Psychologists, neuroscientists, linguists, computer scientists and
biologists are encouraged to report experimental, theoretical and
clinical work that they judge to have philosophical significance; and
philosophers are encouraged to engage with the fundamental issues
addressed by and arising out of such work. In recent years ESPP
sessions have covered such topics as spatial concepts, simulation
theory, attention, reference, problems of consciousness, emotion,
perception, early numerical cognition, infants' understanding of
intentionality, memory and time, motor imagery, counterfactuals, the
semantics/pragmatics distinction, reasoning, vagueness, mental
causation, action and agency, thought without language, externalism,
connectionism, hypnotism, and the interpretation of neuropsychological
results.

The Society invites submitted papers and posters for this
meeting. Submitted papers are refereed and selected on the basis of
quality and relevance to psychologists, philosophers and linguists.

Papers should not exceed a length of 20 minutes (about 8 double-spaced
pages) for a total 30 minute session.

Submissions may be by abstract but in the case of philosophical
submissions a full paper is preferred.

There will also be poster presentations. A submission for a poster
presentation should consist of a 500-word abstract. Submitted papers
may also be considered for presentation as posters.

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS OF PAPERS AND POSTERS is 30 APRIL,
2003. Please send an electronic version (in PDF, PS or MS Word format)
to any ONE of the programme chairs.

Submission of applications can also be made by online submission at
