*Second International Workshop on Semantic Technologies in Ubiquitous,
Massive and Smart Learning* (STUMS 2015)

joint with IEEE INCoS 2015


Tamkang University, Taipei, TAIWAN, September 2 - 4, 2015


A Seamless Learning experience, for an individual, is characterized by the
capacity to sustain the continuity of learning by connecting learning
activities across locations, times, technologies, social settings and
integrating different approaches to teaching, learning and assessment. The
main anticipated impact of this capacity is to obtain no apparent gaps
between different frames of an holisitic learning experience. Such frames
can be filled, for instance, with formal, non formal, informal-intentional
or accidental learning activities supported by various technologies. Hence,
Smart Learning Environments, Mobile Learning, Context-aware Learning and
ultimately, Ubiquitous Learning can be considered as parts which have to
fit together representing the whole Seamless Learning experience. In such a
scenario,* STUMS 2015* aims to provide a forum to investigate approaches,
frameworks and technologies which sustain *continuity* in Seamless Learning
experiences, *alignment* of formal and informal activities and *adaptation* of
both the whole experience and its parts.

The *main goal *of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners who are interested in addressing issues and challenges
related to Seamless Learning mostly, but not exclusively, by leveraging on
Semantic Technologies and Computational Intelligence techniques.
Interdisciplinary works (e.g. fusion of pedagogies and technologies),
theoretical papers and papers describing practical experiences (also in
designing and developing systems and applications) will be welcome.


The *topics of interest* include but are not limited to:

   - Ontology Learning from Informal Learning Activities
   - Ontology-driven methodologies and tools for Instructional Design
   - Ontology Alignment algorithms and frameworks
   - Adaptive/Personalized Learning and Intelligent Tutoring Systems in
   Seamless Learning
   - Methodologies and technologies for Learning  and Teaching in Smart
   - Game-based Education in the Smart City
   - Integration and Interoperability for Seamless Learning
   - Big Data Analytics for TEL
   - Data-driven Learning and Assessment
   - Affective Computing and Emotion Detection in Smart Learning
   - Situation, Context, Learner and Group Modeling
   - Context-awareness and Situation-awareness in Seamless Learning
   - Social Semantic Web as Enabling Platform for MOOCs and MOOC Networks
   - Semantic and Social Sensor Networks supporting Situation Assessment in
   Learning Scenarios
   - Semantic, Mobile and Gesture-based Interfaces
   - Social and Semantic Technologies to enable Serendipitous Learning
   - Collective Knowledge supporting (semi) automatic generation of
   Learning Content
   - Data Visualization and Visual Data Analysis for Decision Support
   Systems in Education
