EC-TEL'2012 Doctoral Consortium Submission Deadline is Extended

[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this call, it has been
posted to several relevant mailing lists. Please redistribute within
your own group or among colleagues, thank you.]

EC-TEL 2012 Seventh European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning
21st Century Learning for 21st Century Skills
18-21 September 2012, Saarbrücken, Germany

The deadline for EC-TEL DC submissions is extended: 15 June, 2012

The EC-TEL Doctoral Consortium brings together Ph.D. students working
on topics related to Technology Enhanced Learning. The doctoral
consortium will offer Ph.D. students the opportunity to present,
discuss, and receive feedback on their research in an
interdisciplinary and international atmosphere. Prominent professors
and researchers in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning will
provide feedback to the selected papers and participate actively and
contribute to the discussions. The Doctoral Consortium will take place
immediately before the EC-TEL 2012 conference.

The intention of this doctoral consortium is to support and inspire
Ph.D. students during their ongoing research efforts. Therefore, it is
necessary that authors will have neither achieved their Ph.D. degree
nor officially submitted their thesis before the doctoral consortium
(September 2012). To enforce this rule we require authors to disclose
their expected graduation date and their advisor's name when


In contrast to regular conference papers, submissions should address
specifically doctoral work!

Therefore, the following elements have to be addressed in the papers:

- A clear formulation of the research question,
- An identification of the significant problems in the field of research,
- An outline of the current knowledge of the problem domain, as well
as the state of existing solutions,
- A presentation of any preliminary ideas, the proposed approach and
the results achieved so far,
- A sketch of the applied research methodology,
- A description of the Ph.D. project's contribution to the problem solution,
- A discussion of how the suggested solution is different, new, or
better as compared to existing approaches to the problem.

Accepted students should prepare:

1. An introduction of themselves and the PhD project for the
introductory session. Duration: 60 sec max.
2. A 15-20 minute presentation of the PhD project to be used for
introducing discussion about their project and its main issues during
the small group sessions.
3. Students are also invited to prepare a poster about their Ph.D. for
the EC-TEL 2012 poster session.

Submissions should be uploaded to:

The max length of DC submissions should not exceed 6 pages.

All papers will be reviewed after acceptance by at least two senior
researchers and one of the accepted doctoral candidates. Additionally,
two discussants, members of the doctoral consortium committee, will be
appointed to each paper. Discussant comments will be followed by a
plenary discussion of the paper. At the end of the consortium there
will be a general discussion, including a brainstorming session about
current and future research topics in the area.
