Extended deadline for paper submission: *February 22, 2018*


The 3rd International Conference on Smart Learning Ecosystems and 
Regional Development aims at promoting reflection and discussion 
concerning R&D work, policies, case studies, entrepreneur experiences 
with a special focus on understanding how relevant smart learning 
ecosystems (schools, campus, working places, informal learning contexts, 
etc.) are for regional development and social innovation and how the 
effectiveness of the relation of citizens and smart ecosystems can be 
boosted. This forum has a special interest in understanding how 
technology mediated instruments can foster the citizen’s engagement with 
learning ecosystems and territories, namely by understanding innovative 
human-centric design and development models/techniques, 
education/training practices, informal social learning, innovative 
citizen-driven policies, technology mediated experiences and their 
impact. This set of concerns will contribute to foster the social 
innovation sectors and ICT as well as economic development and 
deployment strategies alongside new policies for smarter proactive citizens.

This year’s edition focuses on the following areas but welcomes all 
submissions related to smart learning ecosystems and regional development:
- Places for learning
- Human-centered design
- Learning technologies
