  *Call for Papers*

*The 15th International*

*Learning and Technology Conference*

*Internet of Things (IoT):*

*Embedding Intelligence*

*25th – 26th February 2018*

*9th – 10th Jumada Al-Akhirah 1439*

*Jeddah, KSA*

The pervasive nature of smart devices and Web 2.0/3.0 technologies has set
the pace for rapid digital transformation of not only how governments are
redefining their services and delivery, or how organizations conduct
business but also the way citizens live in society.   The Internet of
Things (IoT) has similarly transformed the educational landscape and paved
the way for enriched learning experiences.   In addition to optimizing the
technology enablers to IoT, society also needs to address the security,
social, privacy and psychological aspects of the IoT ecosystem.

The 15th International Learning and Technology (L&T 2018) Conference is a
unique opportunity for researchers, entrepreneurs, technology developers
and policy makers to address current challenges and advances in the field.
  Specifically, it will examine the modern practices and potential of IoT
and the way it affects the digital transformation, innovation, and social,
economic and educational developments both locally and globally.

The conference will feature keynote presentations, thought-provoking paper
presentations, workshop sessions and a stimulating panel discussion
covering the latest developments in the IoT ecosystem.   Join us and
explore new collaboration opportunities, cultivate your social and
knowledge networks, and compliment your core experience!

*The L&T 2018 conference is co-sponsored by the IEEE Western Region Section
and the IEEE Computer Society (C16), and is Scopus indexed.*

*All accepted papers will be published on the IEEE Xplorer website and
the **best
papers will be published in the international Journal of Knowledge Society
