Dear colleagues

-- CALL FOR PAPERS - Deadline for submissions: 3 June 2005 (for all contributions) --

December 14-16, 2005 - PORTO, PORTUGAL

* Conference background and goals

The IADIS CELDA 2005 conference aims to address the main issues concerning with the
evolving learning processes and supporting pedagogies and applications in digital
age. There have been huge advancements in both cognitive psychology and computing
that have affected the educational arena. The convergence of these two disciplines
has never been faster before and this marriage has affected the very basis of the
academia. Paradigms such as just-in-time learning, constructivist approaches,
student-centered learning and collaborative approaches have emerged, and are being
supported by technological advancements such as simulations, virtual reality and
multi-agents systems to name a few. This merger has created both opportunities and
areas of serious concerns. This conference aims to cover both technological as well
as pedagogical issues related to these developments. Main tracks have been identified.
However innovative contributions that do not fit into these areas will also be
considered as long as they are directly related to the overall theme of the conference.

The proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a book. Authors
of selected papers will be invited to publish extended versions of their papers in
a prestigious journal.
