IEEE International Workshop on Wireless and Mobile
Technologies in Education (WMTE 2002).
August 29-30, 2002, Teleborg Campus, Vxj University,
Vxj, Sweden

** Sponsored by
IEEE Learning Technology Task Force

The IEEE International Workshop on Wireless and Mobile Technologies in
Education (WMTE 2002) will bring together researchers, academics and
industry practitioners who are involved or interested in the design and
development of Wireless and Mobile Learning Technologies.
Understanding of the challenges faced in providing technology tools to
support the learning process and ease the creation of instruction material
using mobile technologies will help building a direction for further
and implementation work.

It is expected that the workshop will promote a very intensive interaction
among those attending it, giving ample time to discuss papers. Each full
paper will have a 30-minutes slot for presentation and discussion. Short
papers and work in progress will have 20 minutes. In both cases, a
moderator will present his/her view of the paper to initiate the discussion.

The Workshop Proceedings will include contributions accepted by the
International Program Committee, and will be published by the IEEE
Computer Society Press.

** Topics of Interest
The topics of interest related to the conference theme include but are not
limited to:

Architecture of mobile learning systems
