New 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 research and development, policies, case studies, entrepreneur experiences with a special focus on understanding the relevance of smart learning ecosystems (schools, campus, working places, informal learning contexts, etc.) 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 citizen engagement with learning ecosystems and territories, 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 and economic development and deployment strategies alongside new policies for smarter proactive citizens.
