Call For Papers

EC-TEL 2011

Sixth European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning

Towards Ubiquitous Learning

20-23 September 2011, Palermo, Italy

EC-TEL is a unique setting for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers in
Technology Enhanced Learning from Europe and other continents to meet together
and exchange on the current challenges and advances in the field. At EC-TEL,
experts and young researchers in Computer Science, Education, Psychology,
Cognitive Science, and Social Science, as well as entrepreneurs have the
opportunity to establish collaborations, strengthen their links and
cross-fertilize their core disciplines.

EC-TEL 2011 will push further the Ubiquitous Learning paradigm by not only
tackling the challenges of exploiting new trendy devices in various contexts,
but also by investigating ways to meet and support formally and informally the
learners in their learning playgrounds and social environments thanks to
innovative scenarios.

The EC-TEL Demonstration is your chance to fully engage EC-TEL attendees at a
personal level by letting them see, touch, squeeze, or hear your visions for the
future of TEL. We expect that your Demonstration will be a reliably running
prototype of your vision ready to be tried out, questioned, and interacted with.
In particular, we encourage Demonstration submissions that complement an EC-TEL
Paper submission, so that attendees can get a direct experience of your work in
addition to the scientific presentation.


EC-TEL 2011 offers the opportunity to host several workshops. Parties
interested to organize a workshop are asked to submit a proposal of max. 4
pages outlining the theme of the workshop, workshop format, expected
participants and domains addressed, dissemination activities, programme
committee, and organizational requirements. Proposals should be submitted via
the EasyChair system of EC-TEL.

Please Note: This year the workshop selection will be handled
competitively. That is, the workshop proposals will be ranked according to
innovativeness, overall quality, and comprehensive planning and the top 7-8
proposals will be chosen.


In addition to the regular sessions and workshops, EC-TEL offers a unique
opportunity for European Projects in TEL to held face-to-face meetings. Please
contact the local organization Chair at your earliest convenience to book
meeting rooms.
