Two of the keynote speakers planned for EUROCALL2020 delivered their keynotes at the EUROCALL Online Gathering.
John H. Gillespie is Professor of French Language and Literature at Ulster University (Emeritus). His main research interests in CALL have included translation software, computer-based language-learning environments, multimedia laboratories and staff and student motivation for the use of CALL. Recently he has concentrated on the history and research strategy of CALL, linked to his interest in intellectual history, especially the interaction of literature, philosophy, theology and religious belief in contemporary (French) culture: he is a specialist in French existentialism, especially Jean-Paul Sartre (he is an Editor of Sartre Studies International) and Albert Camus. He is keen to see CALL and language education in general take account of its cultural context. John is a founder member of EUROCALL, and has been a member of the Executive committee since 2006 and Treasurer since 2010.
Vincent F. Hendricks is Professor of Formal Philosophy at The University of Copenhagen. He is Director of the Center for Information and Bubble Studies (CIBS) sponsored by the Carlsberg Foundation and was awarded the Elite Research Prize by the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and the Roskilde Festival Elite Research Prize both in 2008. He was Editor-in-Chief of Synthese: An International Journal for Epistemology, Methodology and Philosophy of Science between 2005-2015.

The Centre for Internationalisation and Parallel Language Use at the University of Copenhagen had been looking forward to hosting the 2020 EUROCALL conference on CALL for Widening Participation. Unfortunately, the restrictions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic made it impossible to host the conference in Copenhagen as planned in 2020. As an alternative, the EUROCALL organization hosted a brilliant online gathering for all members to take part in. The Copenhagen team would like to than the EUROCALL organization the collaboration. We hope to one day be able to welcome the EUROCALL community at the University of Copenhagen.
