/We remind that:/

SLERD 2017 aims at promoting reflection and discussion concerning R&D 
work, policies, case studies, entrepreneur experiences with a special 
focus on understanding how relevant are the 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 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 and economic 
development and deployment strategies alongside new policies for smarter 
proactive citizens.
