SPeL 2016
9th International Workshop on Social and Personal Computing for
Web-Supported Learning Communities
http://software.ucv.ro/~epopescu/spel2016

In conjunction with ICWL 2016 (15th International Conference on Web-based
Learning)
http://icwl2016.dis.uniroma1.it
& SETE 2016 (1st International Symposium on Emerging Technologies for
Education)
http://www.isete.net

26-29 October 2016
Rome, Italy


* Extended paper submission deadline (strict): August 22, 2016 (preceded
by a mandatory abstract submission by August 15)

* All accepted workshop papers will be published in a post-conference
proceedings volume in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)

==================================================================


MOTIVATION
===========

The workshop follows the previous SPeL 2008, SPeL 2009, SPeL 2010, SPeL
2011, DULP & SPeL 2012, SPeL 2013, SPeL 2014 and SPeL 2015 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 and ICSLE 2015 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) 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.
