                         IADIS International Conference on
            Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA 2010)
                    October 15 - 17, 2010 - Timisoara, Romania

* Conference background and goals
The IADIS CELDA 2010 conference aims to address the main issues concerned with evolving learning processes and
supporting pedagogies and applications in the digital age. There have been advances in both cognitive psychology
and computing that have affected the educational arena. The convergence of these two disciplines is increasing at
a fast pace and affecting academia and professional practice in many ways.

Paradigms such as just-in-time learning, constructivism, student-centered learning and collaborative approaches
have emerged and are being supported by technological advancements such as simulations, virtual reality and
multi-agents systems. These developments have 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 easily fit into these areas will also be
considered as long as they are directly related to the overall theme of the conference – cognition and exploratory
learning in the digital age.
