Theme: "Advanced Technologies for Life-Long Learning"

Life-long learning becomes much more achievable as versatile infrastructures for
mobile communication and portable Web access emerge.  Supplementary to this, social
software for supporting learners  in sharing  common views and actually build
authentic understanding on relevant themes for learning  needs to be conceptualized
and experimented with.

The new roles for teachers, coaches, mentors, and fellow learners are attracting
the increasing attention of researchers. Common efforts are being made to characterize
learner profiles and to label portfolios on earlier learning. This conference opens
its door for presenting and discussing vivid, creative solutions and experimental work
at the point of collaborative LEARNING via advanced media.

The conference will bring together people who are working on the design, development,
use and evaluation of technologies that will be the foundation of the advanced
technologies for life-long Learning. 

We invite submission of papers reporting original academic or industrial research in
the area of Advanced Learning Technologies. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Complete
papers will be required for review process; only abstracts will not be sufficient. 

All authors of accepted submissions will be required to complete IEEE Copyright Form.
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions for a Special
Issue of the SSCI indexed Journal of Educational Technology & Society (ISSN 1436-4522).
