Artificial Intelligence emerges as a powerful tool that promises to transform many fields, including education. AI models, like Chat GPT, Bing’s Sydney, and Google Bard hold enormous potential to enhance the language learning experience, providing opportunities for personalized and adaptive learning experiences. However, while these machine learning models offer exciting possibilities, they also raise questions about the ethics and accuracy of AI-generated responses and impact on critical and independent thinking. This panel aims to bring together scholars, researchers, and practitioners to explore the potential and drawbacks of AI in language learning and teaching. It will provide a forum for discussion and collaboration on the latest research, trends, and developments in AI and the language learning process.

Topics of inquiry may include, but are not limited to:

AI and language teaching
AI and language learning
Intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) for language learning
Instructional AI models
Natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning applications for language learning
Adaptive and personalized learning experiences using AI
Chatbots and virtual assistants for language practice and feedback
Gamification and AI 
Integration of AI into language training and professional development
Ethical considerations on the use of AI for language learning

Abstracts of 250 words in English or French should be submitted through the NeMLA website by September 30, 2023.
