Second Call ReLIVE08
With apologies for any cross-posting
The Open University is pleased to announce a second call for abstract submissions for the international conference for Researching Learning in Virtual Environments to be held at its campus in Milton Keynes on the 20th and 21st of November 2008.

If you are currently researching learning in a virtual world, for example There, CyberTown, Second Life, Forterra etc, then we invite you to submit an abstract to ReLIVE08.  We are seeking presenters and participants who have experience of designing and delivering learning in virtual worlds, and the ability to reflect on and share that experience within an analytical framework.  Please note that the closing date for the second call is the 20th of June.

With researchers and practitioners attending from around the globe, this excellent opportunity for networking promises an interesting, stimulating and exciting 2 days.  The conference will begin with a reception on the evening of the 19th November, and the first full day will see the opening keynote from Edward Castranova and an invited panel debate chaired by Sara De Freitas, Director of Research at The Serious Games Institute, as well as a varied programme of paper presentations and workshops.  The conference gala reception and dinner will be supported by a variety of entertainers, including a digital caricaturist, live music and an after dinner speaker (details to be announced shortly), and the second day of presentations and workshops will be wrapped up by Roo Reynolds.  All delegates will receive a conference goodie bag and an electronic copy of the conference proceedings.  Selected papers will be invited to submit chapters for an edited book with a major publisher in the field (tbc).

Please find more details at our website on

We hope to see you in November.
