Smart Education and E-Learning 2015 (SEEL-15) - Launching a New Vision in Education and e-Learning
Following on from the First International Conference on Smart Technology-based Education and Training 2014 (STET-14), SEEL-15 is a major international forum for the presentation of innovative ideas, approaches, technologies, systems, findings and outcomes of research and design and development projects in the emerging area of smart technology and its applications in education and training.
The SEEL-15 conference serves as a new and innovative incubator for smart technology, smart systems, smart education/training.
The conference will be focused on the rapidly growing fusion of three areas:-
- smart technology, intelligent systems, computer science and computer engineering.
- engineering of advanced educational software and hardware systems.
- technology-based teaching and learning strategies and methodologies.
SEEL-15 will provide an excellent opportunity for research scientists, academics, engineers and practitioners to meet well-known experts from all over the world and to discuss innovative ideas and approaches, advances in smart technology and intelligent systems, state-of-the-art software and hardware systems, research findings and outcomes, best practices and case studies, national and international projects, institutional standards and policies, and many other topics related to smart education and E-Learning.
Smart Education and E-Learning will be co-located under the KES Smart Digital Futures umbrella with our other conferences: IIMSS, AMSTA and IDT. Registration gives access to all of these conferences, together with a paper published in one set of proceedings.
