SPeL 2013
6th International Workshop on Social and Personal Computing for
Web-Supported Learning Communities

In conjunction with ICSTCC 2013
17th International Conference on System Theory, Control and Computing

Sinaia, Romania
11-13 October 2013



The workshop follows the previous SPeL 2008, SPeL 2009, SPeL 2010, SPeL
2011 and DULP&SPeL 2012 editions
( The general
topic of the workshop is the social and personal computing for
web-supported learning communities, focusing on emergent technologies for
applied computing in education.

Web-based learning is moving from centralized, institution-based systems
to a decentralized and informal creation and sharing of knowledge. Social
software (e.g., blogs, wikis, social bookmarking systems, media sharing
services) is increasingly being used for e-learning purposes, helping to
create novel learning experiences and knowledge. In the world of pervasive
Internet, learners are also evolving: the so-called "digital natives" want
to be in constant communication with their peers, they expect an
individualized instruction and a personalized learning environment, which
automatically adapt to their individual needs.

This workshop deals with current research on collaboration and
personalization issues in Web-supported learning communities. Its aim is
to provide a forum for discussing new trends and initiatives in this area,
including research about the planning, development, application, and
evaluation of intelligent e-learning systems, where people can learn
together in a personalized way through social interaction with other


The workshop welcomes submissions covering aspects of collaboration,
social interactions, adaptivity and personalization in technology enhanced
learning, particularly related to issues about:

    * Social learning environments
    * Theory and modeling of social computing in education
    * Web 2.0 tools for collaborative learning
    * Personal learning environments
    * Lifelong learning networks
    * Virtual spaces for learning communities
    * Social networks analysis and mining
    * Computer-supported collaborative learning
    * Personalized and adaptive learning
    * Adaptation methods and techniques for groups of learners
    * Intelligent learner and group modeling
    * Learning analytics
    * Collaborative filtering and recommendations for learners
    * Game-based social learning
    * Metadata, folksonomies and tagging
    * Mobile e-learning applications
    * Cloud-based learning
    * Intelligent agent technology in web-based education
    * Semantic web and ontologies for e-learning
    * E-learning platforms and tools
    * Cognitive, motivational and affective aspects
    * Practice and experience sharing


The workshop papers should be formatted according to the IEEE Conference

not exceed 6 pages in length (up to 2 more pages are acceptable, but they
will incur a charge of 50 EUR/page).

All papers should be submitted in PDF format, through the Easychair

All accepted workshop papers will be published in the main conference
proceedings, which will be indexed in IEEE Xplore and INSPEC. Authors of
accepted workshop papers will be required to register to the main
conference and present their paper.
