                           First Call for Papers

                   5th International Conference on
   Wireless, Mobile and Ubiquitous Technologies in Education (WMUTE 2008)

                             March 23-26 2008
                              Beijing, China

Important Dates:

   October 5, 2007		Submissions due
   November 23, 2007		Notification of acceptance
   December 23, 2007		Camera ready papers due

Call For Papers:

The rapid progress of mobile and ubiquitous technologies enables internet
connections, anytime and anywhere, with ease. Traditional ways of
learning and teaching, happening at fixed times and places such as
schools or offices and limited with numbers of people, are changing
remarkably. Although such technologies allow people to learn in an
appropriate context, they cannot guarantee that the learning
environments we design will be successful. Issues of design,
implementation, deployment and evaluation of such technology supported
learning environments should be investigated from interdisciplinary
points of view, including computer science, educational research,
cognitive science, and so on.
WMUTE 2008 is the 5th international meeting, extending the four previous
WMTE/WMUTE workshops held in 2002 (Vaxjo, Sweden), 2004 (Taipei, Taiwan),
2005 (Tokushima, Japan) and 2006 (Athens, Greece) to become a conference
the first time. This conference provides a forum for researchers and
practitioners of this emerging area for discussing these innovative
learning technologies and challenging research issues through high
quality papers and presentations.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

・Innovative and practical use of wireless, mobile and ubiquitous
   technologies for education, learning and training
・Adaptive and adaptable learning environments using mobile and
   ubiquitous devices
・Agent support for mobile and ubiquitous learning
・Architectures and implementations of context-aware learning technology
・Architectures and infrastructures for ubiquitous learning systems
・Design of learner-supportive interfaces of ubiquitous learning
・Designs for wireless, mobile and ubiquitous technologies in education
・Digital tangibles or wireless sensor networks for learning
・Entertainment computing for ubiquitous learning
・Evaluation and evaluation methodologies for ubiquitous learning
・Game-based learning in mobile and ubiquitous learning environments
・Innovative devices for mobile/ubiquitous learning
・Amalgamating Integrating individual and collaborative learning in
   mobile and ubiquitous learning environments
・Lifelong learning support in ubiquitous/mobile environment
・Mobile and ubiquitous computing support for collaborative learning
・Mobile, ubiquitous and wireless technologies for indoor and outdoor
・New pedagogical theories for ubiquitous learning environments and
・Virtual, augmented and mixed reality technologies for
   ubiquitous/mobile learning
