The 2011 CALL Conference will be in Vancouver - that quaint "village by the sea" that hosted the Olympics in 2010.  The organizing committee is already working to ensure that mountain adventures and ocean views are in store for all who attend.  The final dates in May or June will be fixed once the results of the recent survey are in.  Plan to be here!
