SPeL 2019
12th International Workshop on Social and Personal Computing for
Web-Supported Learning Communities

In conjunction with SETE 2019 (4th International Symposium on Emerging
Technologies for Education)
& ICWL 2019 (18th International Conference on Web-based Learning)

23-25 September 2019
Magdeburg, Germany

* Paper submission deadline: June 21, 2019 (preceded by a mandatory
abstract submission by June 14)

* All accepted workshop papers will be published by Springer in Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.



The workshop follows the previous SPeL 2008, SPeL 2009, SPeL 2010, SPeL
2011, DULP & SPeL 2012, SPeL 2013, SPeL 2014, SPeL 2015, SPeL 2016, SPeL
2017 and SPeL 2018 workshops, held in conjunction with the SAINT 2008
conference, WI/IAT 2009 conference, DEXA 2010 conference, ICWL 2011
conference, ICALT 2012 conference, ICSTCC 2013 conference, ICWL 2014
conference, ICSLE 2015 conference, ICWL & SETE 2016 conferences, ICWL &
SETE 2017 conferences and MIS4TEL 2018 conference respectively. The
general topic of the workshop is the social and personal computing for
web-supported learning communities.

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, social networks) 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. The
challenge in this context is to provide intelligent and adaptive support
for collaborative learning, taking into consideration the individual
differences between learners.

This workshop deals with current research on the interplay between
collaboration and personalization issues for supporting intelligent
learning environments. 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 learning
environments, where people can learn together in a personalized way
through social interaction with other learners.

The workshop is targeted at academic researchers, developers,
educationists and practitioners interested in innovative uses of social
media and adaptation techniques for the advancement of intelligent
learning environments. The proposed field is interdisciplinary and very
dynamic, taking into account the recent advent of Web 2.0 and ubiquitous
personalization, and it is hoped to attract a large audience.


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
    * Collaborative filtering and recommendations for learners
    * Game-based social learning
    * Personalized mobile learning applications
    * Cloud-based social learning
    * Intelligent agent technology for social learning
    * Metadata, folksonomies and tagging
    * Semantic web and ontologies for personalized learning
    * Cognitive, motivational and affective aspects for personalization
    * Practice and experience sharing


The workshop papers should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS
Authors Guidelines
( The length
of the manuscript should not exceed 6 pages for short papers and 10 pages
for full papers.

Papers should be submitted in PDF format, through the Easychair system:

All accepted workshop papers will be included in SETE 2019 post-conference
proceedings, published by Springer in Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS) series.
