Dear Colleagues,

This is a call for submissions of special event proposals
to the 2003 conference on Computer Support for Collaborative
Learning, to be held in Bergen Norway on June 14-18, 2003. The
deadline for papers is past, but you can still submit for

 Tutorials, Workshops, Interactive Events, Research Panels,
 and Doctoral Consortium -- by January 15th

 Posters, Demos and Exhibits -- by March 1st

For further information on the conference see

  http://www.intermedia.uib.no/cscl2003/

CSCL is a growing and high quality international conference,
and I hear that this year's location is superb.

Since I am Interactive Events chair I will describe this submission
category in some detail below.

Interactive events are intended to enable participants to
experiment with new interactive devices and environments, explore
designs for collaborative activities, or to try and compare
methods for research and practice. We encourage events that make
use of advanced technologies.  Interactive events may be scheduled
in a particular time slot, take place asynchronously over several
days, or be a mixture of both. Possible formats are limited only
by proposers' imaginations, but should include a significant
measure of participation by attendees.  Here are some examples
of possible formats:

  A CSCL tool is made available on devices distributed throughout
  the conference site. Participants use the tool over several
  days, e.g., to discuss an issue of common interest to the CSCL
  community. The event culminates in a face to face session in
  which tool designers, critical friends, and participants reflect
  on their online experience and ways to improve the design.

  Participants are given hand-held computing devices along with a
  data collection objective distributed across the conference
  site. They bring their data together and engage in a group
  sense-making activity.

  Teachers and students who have been engaged in a long term
  online learning community interact with other conference
  attendees in a virtual conference, perhaps using the very online
  environment in which they work (if appropriate). Some
  representatives of the community attend the conference, while
  others join in through virtual presence.

  Several researchers with distinct yet complementary theoretical
  and methodological perspectives analyze a common videotape
  example of collaborative learning in action. Conference
  participants join in with their own perspectives.

  Demonstrations that include hands-on use are encouraged. For
  example, a new interactive technology might be demonstrated
  briefly to all attendees, then used to support small group
  learning, followed by full group discussion of what was learned.
  (We had a quite successful event of this format in 2002
  involving concept mapping on handhelds and desktops.)

  Groupware for online discussion both during and after any of
  these kinds of events may also be used to extend the extent of
  interaction.

These are only examples to convey the range of possibilities, and
are not meant to rule out other ideas. I encourage you to contact
me (Dan Suthers, [log in to unmask]) in advance of your final
proposal to discuss your ideas. A few cautions: tutorials (e.g., in
which you simply train participants to use your system), hands-off
demonstrations, and events involving no innovative component
are not sufficient. The best proposals will engage participants in
exploring issues or coming to new conclusions related to the
technology or learning scenario being addressed.

The proposal should be no more than 3 pages, and should include:

 * Title of interactive event.

 * Organizers' names, affiliation and addresses, email, telephone,
   fax, and URL (if appropriate).

 * If there is more than one organizer, identify the point of
   contact and the roles of other organizers.

 * Short (appx 200 word) abstract describing the event in a manner
   suitable for use in conference promotional materials and
   programs.

 * Objective of the event from the participants' standpoint: what
   will participants (possibly including the organizers) learn?

 * Description of the event itself. Give a narrative of the flow
   of events, including roles of organizers and participants.
   Include examples of materials, hardware, software and other
   technologies used as appropriate.

 * Summary of scheduling needs. ("One-shot" event in a room? If
   so, how long?  Asynchronous or face to face events distributed
   over the conference?)

 * Number of participants you can accommodate (if there is a
   limit).

 * Summary of equipment needs. ( We expect to be able to provide
   standard computer and presentation equipment. We cannot commit
   in advance to meet all requests. Proposers of events requiring
   other equipment should begin discussions with conference
   organizers as soon as possible and consider other ways to fund
   the equipment rental.)

 * Do you have a related submission to the papers track, or plan
   to submit a related poster, panel, or workshop proposal?

I need to hear from you by January 15th. If you have a great idea
but are short on time, please send as much as you can by then, and
we can refine the details later.

Aloha,
Dan
