** Conference theme


The rapidly increasing interest in advanced learning technologies provide
many challenges to those engaged in research and development. On the one
hand the capabilities of digital technologies in providing and
contributing to learning environments are opening up new approaches that
utilise, for example, multimedia, virtuality and collaborative methods of
knowledge management. On the other hand the changing and increasing
demands of education in this technological age require practical
techniques and applications that benefit a wider range of abilities,
learning styles and organisations.

Where should the computer be placed in these developments and what roles
should it undertake in learning environments? What theories and
representations should underpin research and what are the fruitful
directions to follow and exploit? How should the adaptive intelligences
of computing systems and teachers/students interact and collaborate?
What pedagogies are appropriate and useful to guide applications and
what tools and media are required for developers, teachers and students?
Also evaluation is an important but often neglected issue, but what
methods are appropriate to provide guidance and empowerment to these
advances in learning technologies and their implementations?

ICALT 2001 invites submissions with a good theoretical base or formalism
that present new, yet unpublished, solid achievements based on
experiments, that come to answer concretely one or more of the questions
above or can point to possible answers. Survey papers are also accepted,
if they are well documented, make a contribution to the field, and reveal
new aspects and perspectives, as well as future directions.

** Topics of Interest
The focus of the conference is on the design and development issues of
advanced learning technologies. The topics of interest for the conference
include but are not limited to:

. Architecture of learning technology systems
. Advanced uses of multimedia and hypermedia
. Integrated learning environments
. Application of artificial intelligence tools in learning technology
. Application of metadata
. Agents technology
. Practical uses of authoring tools
. Virtual reality
. Teaching/learning strategies
. Collaborative learning/groupware
. Adaptive and intelligent applications
. Internet based systems
. Application of instructional design theories
. Evaluation of learning technology systems

The conference will focus on where the research in advance learning
technology is heading and what are the implementation challenges in
the real-world situations.
