***************************************************************************************
EC-TEL 2012 Seventh European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning
21st Century Learning for 21st Century Skills
***************************************************************************************
http://www.ec-tel.eu
***************************************************************************************
18-21 September 2012, Saarbrücken, Germany
***************************************************************************************

The European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL) is a
unique opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to
address current challenges and advances in the field. Through EC-TEL,
established and emerging researchers as well as practitioners,
entrepreneurs, and technology developers explore new collaborations,
strengthen networks, and compliment their core experience.

Promoting and developing 21st Century Learning for 21st Century Skills that
meet contemporary needs and challenges is a key priority within the
European Union and constituent countries. Crucial questions need to be
addressed, such as:
* How can schools prepare young people for the technology-rich workplace of
the future?
* How can we use technology to promote informal and independent learning
outside traditional educational settings?
* How can we use next generation social and mobile technologies to promote
informal and responsive learning?

This focus on skills, practice and impact is reflected in EC-TEL itself.
EC-TEL 2012 is, for the first time, specifically appealing to Technology
Enhanced Learning innovators, creative practitioners and other
representatives from e-learning more generally. Extended demonstrations of
prototypes and ‘TEL in action’ will spark discussions between different but
complimentary groups, and be animated and disseminated through live
internet radio broadcasts. EC-TEL 2012 will examine and improve the
transitions between research, practice and industry.

We invite contributions for demonstrations, workshops and project meetings
as well as academic research papers. A doctoral consortium will also be
organized concurrently with the workshops. See the extended call for papers
for more details: http://www.ec-tel.eu/call-for-papers

reviewed through a non-blind review process. Accepted papers will be
published in the conference proceedings. Proceedings will be published by
Springer within their “Lecture Notes in Computer Science” series which is
ranked in the ISI Web of Knowledge. The use of supplied template is
mandatory:http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0
• Full Papers: max. 14 pages, published in proceedings
• Short Papers and Demonstrations: max. 6 pages, published in proceeding
• Posters: max. 4 pages, 1 page summary published in proceedings
• Workshop proposals: max. 4 pages, not published in proceedings

***************************************************************************************
DEMONSTRATIONS
***************************************************************************************
A demonstration is your chance to fully engage EC-TEL attendees at a
personal level by letting them see, touch, squeeze, or hear your visions
for the future of TEL, or demonstrate highly interactive ‘TEL in Action’
(e.g. through videos or real-time learning experiences). We expect that
your Demonstration will be a reliably running prototype of your vision that
is ready to be tried out, questioned and interacted with.

You need to submit a concise description of your prototype, clearly showing
how your technological innovation realises a clear learning innovation.
This needs to be in a paper that is a maximum of 6 pages that will be
published in the EC-TEL 2012 proceedings if accepted.

***************************************************************************************
POSTERS
***************************************************************************************
Posters report on significant work in progress. Please submit a paper up to
a maximum of 4 pages describing your work and the results that you plan to
achieve until September 2012. A 1-page summary of this will then be
published within the EC-TEL proceedings.

***************************************************************************************
WORKSHOPS
***************************************************************************************
EC-TEL 2012 offers the opportunity to host several workshops. Parties
interested in organizing a workshop are asked to submit a proposal of max.
4 pages outlining the theme of the workshop, workshop format, expected
participants and domains addressed, dissemination activities, programme
committee, and organizational requirements. Proposals should be submitted
via the EasyChair system of EC-TEL.

***************************************************************************************
PROJECT MEETINGS
***************************************************************************************
In addition to the regular sessions and workshops, EC-TEL offers a unique
opportunity for European Projects in TEL to held face-to-face meetings.
Please contact the local organization chair at your earliest convenience to
book meeting rooms.

***************************************************************************************
DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM
***************************************************************************************
The doctoral consortium will offer Ph.D. students the opportunity to
present, discuss, and receive feedback on their research in an
interdisciplinary and international atmosphere. Prominent professors and
researchers in the field of Technology Enhanced Learning will provide
feedback to the selected papers and participate actively and contribute to
the discussions. The Doctoral Consortium will take place immediately before
the EC-TEL 2012 conference. For details please refer to
http://ec-tel.eu/submissions#dc
