Summary Digitalisation plays an increasingly important role in the educational landscape, not least in relation to the learning and teaching of foreign and second languages. The 28th international conference of the European Association of Computer Assisted Language Learning will be held 19-22 August in Copenhagen, Denmark. Around 300 participants will attend from all over the world, bringing together researchers, practioners, students and decision-makers. This year’s conference will explore the potential of information and communication technologies for widening participation in formal as well as informal language learning contexts. The conference plays an important role in communicating knowledge, research and practical experience in the interplay between digital tools, teaching and development.
