The 2006 International Conference on SCORM (SCORM'2006)

Tamkang University, Taipei, Taiwan
January 17 - 19, 2006

(In Conjunction with the International Plugfest II)


The Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) aims to foster creation of reusable
learning content as instructional objects within a common technical framework for computer
and Web-based learning. The 2006 International Conference on SCORM (SCORM'2006) will
provide a forum for discussion on SCORM related research issues. The conference is
co-sponsored by the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), Tamkang University, Institute
for Information Industry, Taiwan, National Science and Technology Program for e-Learning,
Taiwan, and Endorsed by the IEEE Technical Committee on Learning Technology.

The conference covers theory, design and application of SCORM-related research issues.
Aside from the regular presentations, the conference will include keynote addresses with
speakers from both industry and academia. Prospective authors are invited to propose papers
in any of the following areas:
* Content Authoring and Converting
* Automatic Generation of Metadata
* Visualization of Content Aggregation and Sequencing
* Metrics of Learning Objects and Content Aggregations
* Game Technology for Distance Learning
* Modeling and Simulation in Distance Learning
* Question, Test, and Performance Assessment
* Intelligent Tutoring Based on Sequencing and Navigation
* Automatic Testing of Sequencing and Navigation
* Practical Usage and Examples of Sequencing and Navigation
* Experimental Design for Adaptive Learning
* Infrastructure and Design of Repository
* Discovery and Registration of Repository
* Searching and Reusing of Learning Objects
* Open Architecture for LMSs
* Mobile Technology for Distance Learning
* Collaborative Learning Systems

All submissions will be peer-reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality, significance,
and clarity. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings. Best
papers recommended by the program committee will be extended and published in a special
volume of the IEEE Learning Technology Newsletter. Besides, authors of selected papers
will be invited to make an extension of their papers to be published in the International
Journal of Distance Education Technologies ( 

The authors of accepted papers will present at the conference and be required to complete
ADL release forms when submitting their final papers. In addition, presentation slides
