* Conference background and goals
The IADIS CELDA 2006 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-cantered
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 (see below).
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.

* Outcomes of the Conference
The proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a book and CD-ROM.

Authors of the best published papers in the CELDA 2006 proceedings will be invited to publish extended
versions of their papers in Journal of Research on Technology in Education (SSCI indexed).

* Types of submissions
Full papers, Short Papers, Reflection papers and Tutorials. All submissions will go through a double-
blind refereeing process with at least two international experts.

* Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following areas:
- Acquisition of expertise
- Assessing progress of learning in complex domains
- Assessment of exploratory learning approaches
- Assessment of exploratory technologies
- Cognition in education
