Call for Papers
ICALT is an annual international conference on Advanced Learning Technologies and Technology-enhanced Learning organized by IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Technical Committee on Learning Technology. After its kick-off as IWALT in Palmerston North, New Zealand (2000), ICALT has been held in Madison, USA (2001), Kazan, Russia (2002), Athens, Greece (2003), Joensuu, Finland (2004), Kaohsiung, Taiwan (2005), Kerkade, The Netherlands (2006), Niigata, Japan (2007), Santander, Spain (2008), Riga, Latvia (2009), Sousse, Tunisia (2010), Athens, Georgia, USA (2011), Rome, Italy (2012), Beijing, China (2013).
The theme of ICALT 2014 is "Advanced Technologies for Supporting Open Access to Formal and Informal Learning". Emerging technologies keep transforming not only the ways people learn but what they learn as well. Access to learning is nowadays moving beyond defined pathways and discrete courses. It rather integrates formal and informal learning experiences throughout life. Learning is structured around flexible curricula that accommodate needs of diverse student audiences, and offer access to courses, content, and resources through a variety of platforms, devices, and contexts. This change in the way people access learning, poses quandaries for educational organisations, researchers, practitioners and policy makers, especially with regards to the development of advanced technologies that accommodate the needs of a new generation of learners; the choice of appropriate technologies; and the application of learning technologies in emerging learning contexts.
We invite submission of papers reporting original academic or industrial research in the area of Advanced Learning Technologies and Technology-enhanced Learning. All papers will be double-blindly peer-reviewed. Complete papers are required to be reviewed.
The ICALT 2014 Conference will be divided in tracks, as presented here.
The anticipated types of submissions for Tracks 1 - 18 are:
- Full paper: 5 pages
- Short paper: 3 pages
- Posters: 2 pages
Regarding Track 19, the anticipated type of submission is:
- Doctoral Consortium paper: 3 pages
Selected Papers from all Tracks will be considered for publication to:
- Educational Technology and Society Journal, ISSN 1436-4522 [included in SSCI, Impact Factor: 1.171/2012 - Thomson Scientific 2012 Journal Citations Report] – listed #4 at Scholar Google Educational Technology list.
