Final Call for Contributions:

EC-TEL 2013: Eighth European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning
"Scaling Up Learning for Sustained Impact"

17-21 September 2013, Paphos, Cyprus

-> The top papers of EC-TEL 2013 will be invited for extended versions
in the IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies journal (see

-> We are pleased to announce a keynote talk by Sir John Daniel and Ms
Stamenka Uvalic-Trumbic on "Making Sense of MOOCs: The Evolution of
Online Learning in Higher Education". See

-> The deadline for full submissions was extended to 9th of April to
give authors some space for family time over Easter. !NOTE: submission
of an abstract of your contribution is still required by 25 March!
There will be no more extensions to these deadlines.

-> The guidelines for Demo and Poster submissions have been updated

The European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL) is a
unique opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers
to address current challenges and advances in the field. Through
EC-TEL, established and emerging researchers as well as practitioners,
entrepreneurs, and technology developers explore new collaborations,
strengthen networks, and complement their core experience.

While Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) has created enormous changes
in schools, universities and at the workplaces, innovations have
tended to be unsustainable. Too often, initiatives need a high degree
of effort to be sustained, and are consequently endangered when
funding stops. Many initiatives now focus on scaling up bottom-up
initiatives to create higher and more sustainable impact. These
initiatives require an interdisciplinary perspective in TEL research
and development, drawing on core disciplines of Computer Science,
Education, Psychology, Cognitive Science, and Social Science. This
blend of research traditions has always been a strength of EC-TEL and
its vibrant community.

We invite contributions for long and short reserach papers,
demonstrations, and posters. See the website for more details:

Note: the European Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (eCSCW)
conference will be hosted from 21-25 September at the same location as
EC-TEL 2013. So there is a good opportunity to visit both conferences
at the same time.

(All deadlines are hard deadlines)

Main Conference: 18-20 September 2013


Submissions will be handled through EasyChair
( All papers
will be reviewed through a non-blind review process. Accepted papers
will be published in the conference proceedings. Proceedings will be
published by Springer within their Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS) series which is ranked in the ISI Web of Knowledge. The use of
the LNCS template is mandatory:

* Full Papers: max. 14 pages, published in proceedings
* Short Papers: max. 6 pages, published in proceeding
* Demonstration Papers: max. 4 pages, published in proceedings
* Poster Papers: max. 4 pages, 2 page summary published in proceedings
* Workshop Proposals: max. 4 pages, not published in proceedings


Please submit a concise, max. 4 pages description of a (running!)
prototype, clearly showing how your technological innovation realises
a learning innovation. All accepted demonstrations will be invited to
participate in the EC-TEL 2013 Demo Sprint session. The audience will
vote for the best EC-TEL prototype in this session and the winner will
be awarded. We encourage demonstration submissions that complement an
EC-TEL research paper submission. Please find the expected structure
of demo submissions at the EC-TEL website:


Posters report on significant work in progress. We are planning an
interactive poster and demonstration session in which you can present
your work and elicit feedback from EC-TEL participants. Please submit
a paper up to a maximum of 4 pages long describing your work and the
results that you plan to achieve until September 2013. A 2-page
summary of this will then be published within the EC-TEL proceedings.
Please find the expected structure of poster submissions at the EC-TEL


EC-TEL 2013 offers the opportunity to host several workshops. Parties
interested to organize a workshop are asked to submit a proposal of
maximum 4 pages long outlining the theme of the workshop, workshop
format, expected participants and domains addressed, dissemination
activities, workshop organizing committee, and organizational
requirements. Proposals should be submitted via the EasyChair system
of EC-TEL. We are exploring possibilities for arranging publication of
all workshop papers in a post-conference proceedings volume to be
published by Springer. Workshop organizers should indicate in their
proposals whether they would like to contribute to such a
post-conference proceedings volume, or whether they are targeting
other high-quality publication outlets such as international
peer-reviewed journals.


- EC-TEL 2013 also offers to host project meetings
- There will be a doctoral consortium for PhD students
- You can become a sponsor of the conference
