***************************************************************************************
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:

SUBMISSION FORMATS
***************************************************************************************
Submissions will be handled through EasyChair
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ectel2012). All papers
will be 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
