CALL FOR PAPERS

The 14th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies – ICALT2014

Advanced Technologies for Supporting Open Access to Formal and Informal Learning

Athens, Greece, July 7-10, 2014

http://www.ask4research.info/icalt/2014/

Deadline: February 1st, 2014

ICALT is an annual international conference on Advanced Learning Technologies and Technology-enhanced Learning organized by IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Technical Committee on Learning Technology. After its kick-off as IWALT in Palmerston North, New Zealand (2000), ICALT has been held in Madison, USA (2001), Kazan, Russia (2002), Athens, Greece (2003), Joensuu, Finland (2004), Kaohsiung, Taiwan (2005), Kerkade, The Netherlands (2006), Niigata, Japan (2007), Santander, Spain (2008), Riga, Latvia (2009), Sousse, Tunisia (2010), Athens, Georgia, USA (2011), Rome, Italy (2012), Beijing, China (2013).

The 14th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies (ICALT2014) will be held in Athens, Greece. The Advanced Digital Systems and Services for Education and Learning (ASK), a research establishment founded in 2000 and associated with the Information Technologies Institute (ITI) of the Centre of Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH) and the Department of Digital Systems of the University of Piraeus, will host the event.

The theme of ICALT 2014 is \”Advanced Technologies for Supporting Open Access to Formal and Informal Learning \”. Emerging technologies keep transforming not only the ways people learn but what they learn as well. Access to learning is nowadays moving beyond defined pathways and discrete courses. It rather integrates formal and informal learning experiences throughout life. Learning is structured around flexible curricula that accommodate needs of diverse student audiences, and offer access to courses, content, and resources through a variety of platforms, devices, and contexts. This change of the way people access learning poses quandaries for educational organisations, researchers, practitioners and policy makers, especially with regards to the development of advanced technologies that accommodate the needs of a new generation of learners; the choice of appropriate technologies; and the application of learning technologies in emerging learning contexts.

ICALT is the flagship international conference of the IEEE Technical Committee on Learning Technology with its Proceedings included in top-20 at Scholar Google Educational Technology impact list at #19 -
