MIS4TEL 2021 : MIS4TEL'21: 11th International Conference in Methodologies and Intelligent Systems for Technology Enhanced Learning
Call For Papers
Education is the cornerstone of any society and it serves as one of the foundations for many of its social values and characteristics. State-of-the-art and novel methodologies and technologies allow researchers, designers, and domain experts to pursue Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) solutions targeting not only cognitive processes but also motivational, personality or emotional factors. Nowadays, we can identify two main legs, providing necessary and complementary strengths to a TEL oriented design process: appropriate technologies should be applied, and appropriate methods should guide such application. Technologies in TEL are capable of delivering smart, personalized, tailored, and motivating learning solutions. Methods are coming from different fields, such as education psychology, medicine, computer science, and from diverse communities, where collaboration and co-working is used, such as maker communities and participatory design communities. In addition, Learning Analytics can help manage available (big) data and allow to augment learning opportunities for learners and educators alike, for instance by supporting self-regulated learning or adaptation of the learning material.
As to these topics, the annual appointment of MIS4TEL established itself as a consolidated fertile forum where scholars and professionals from the international community, with a broad range of expertise in the TEL field, share results and compare experiences. The 10th edition of the conference calls for novel research in TEL and expands the topics of the previous editions, highlighting the role of the most recent methods and technological opportunities (ranging from Artificial Intelligence and agent-based systems to Robotics, Virtual Reality, Internet of Things and wearable solutions, among others) and looking for papers discussing how they can be employed to create novel approaches to TEL, innovative TEL solutions and valuable TEL experiences. As in the tradition of MIS4TEL, this edition aims at offering the different perspectives, and complementary voices, coming from the multidisciplinary field of TEL (e.g., engineering, computer science, education, medicine) from this multidisciplinary field.
MIS4TEL 2021 will be held in Salamanca (Spain) on October 6th-8th, 2021, in parallel with the PAAMS'21 International Conference.

CALL FOR WORKSHOPS
Following the successful initiative from previous years, the International Conference in Methodologies and Intelligent Systems for Technology Enhanced Learning (MIS4TEL) intends to host a number of workshops on different TEL-related areas also in the next edition of the conference. Therefore, the MIS4TEL 2021 Organizing Committee invites workshop proposals.
The aim of the workshops is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on emerging topics in the scope of the conference.
Workshop contributions should be full papers (10 pages) or exceptionally short papers (6 pages); papers must be formatted according to the Springer AISC template. Accepted workshop papers will be included in the MIS4TEL Proceedings published by AISC series of Springer Verlag (http://www.springer.com/series/11156). At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend MIS4TEL 2021 to present the paper in order to have it included in the conference proceedings.
Please note that workshop organizers will be responsible for creating and advertising the Call for Papers, managing the review process and collecting the camera ready papers. A dedicated Easychair installation will be provided by MIS4TEL conference organizers (under a centralized management).
For each accepted workshop, one of its organizers will be invited to co-edit the proceedings of the conference.
Please note that workshop proposals will be evaluated on a continuous basis and acceptance / rejection decisions will be sent to the workshop organizers within one week from submission. Early submissions are highly encouraged, so that workshop organizers have sufficient time to attract papers.The proposals should be no longer than 4 pages and include the following information:
- Workshop title
- Workshop organizers' short bio (including prior experience in organizing workshops) and contact information
- Workshop description and topics
- Relevance of the workshop to the conference
