2nd International Workshop on evidenced-based Technology Enhanced Learning

co-located with the PAAMS 2013 Conference

Salamanca, Spain 22-24 May, 2013



Paper submission deadline: December 14, 2012

Acceptance notification: February 8, 2013

Final version submission: February 25, 2013

Conference dates: May 22-24, 2013


Research on Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) investigates how 
information and communication technologies can be designed in order to 
support pedagogical activities. The Evidence based Design (EBD) of a 
system bases its decisions on empirical evidence and effectiveness. The 
evidence-based TEL workshop (ebTEL) brings together TEL and EBD. The 
workshop aims at collecting contributions concerning evidence-based TEL 
systems, like their design following EBD principles as well as success 
stories or best practices that educators, education stakeholders or 
educational psychologists used to improve their students' learning 
experience, in particular for students with specific difficulties (e.g. 
poor/slow readers, students living in impoverished communities or families).

The previous edition of ebTEL collected TEL contributions from computer 
science, artificial intelligence, evidence-based medicine, educational 
psychology and pedagogy. Like the previous edition, the international 
ebTEL'13 edition aims at being a forum in which TEL researchers and 
practitioners alike can discuss innovative evidence-based ideas, 
projects, and lessons related to TEL. The meeting will be held in 
Salamanca on May 22nd-24th 2013, in parallel with the PAAMS'13 
International Conference.


Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

- Evidence-based personalisation, user modelling and adaptation in TEL

- Evidence-based games and game learning for TEL

- Knowledge representation and reasoning for evidence-based TEL

- Knowledge management and evidence-based TEL

- Natural language processing and evidence-based TEL

- Semantic web and evidence-based TEL

- Web 2.0 and Social Learning environments for evidence-based TEL

- Sharing and interoperability between evidence-based TEL systems

- Effective teaching techniques and strategies for learning

- Evidence-based design case studies

- Evaluation guidelines, methodologies and methods for evidence-based TEL

- Evidence-based TEL for users with special needs


The ebTEL workshop invites contributions in the area of TEL, both from 
computer science as well as evidence-based medicine, educational 
psychology and pedagogy. Researchers from these areas and education 
stakeholders are all expected contributors or participants. The 
organising committee will particularly encourage the participation of 
stakeholders and researchers in the educational or TEL field so as to 
foster the sharing of best practices in the field, and disseminate the 
research progress in the educational context.


We invite the submission of papers (max. 8 pages in Springer format) 
reporting original research, not previously published, relevant to the 
workshop's themes.

All submissions will be carefully reviewed by an international program 
committee. All submitted papers will undergo a thorough review process; 
each paper will be refereed by at least two experts in the field based 
on relevance, originality, significance, quality and clarity.

The proceedings of the previous edition of ebTEL are available via 
Springer at 


All the accepted papers will be presented during the workshop and 
published by Springer in the Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing 
series. At least one of the authors will be required to register for the 
workshop in order to present the paper and have it included in the 
proceedings. It also foresees keynote presentations by experts in the 
TEL area.


The BISITE research group ( of the University of 
Salamanca, organiser of PAAMS 2013, offers 40 grants/awards to 
facilitate the attendance to doctoral and young doctors both to the 
event itself (including Workshops and Special Sessions) and to the 
parallel collocated events. More information:
