Conference Call for Papers

We invite you to participate in the 15th Latin-American Conference on Learning Technologies (LACLO 2020).

Latin American countries have an urgent need to share, to join efforts and to grow up together in many areas, but especially in those areas that could lead us to improve the educational level of our people. Learning technologies could be considered by many like a whole new educational era that is under development, and Latin American countries must maintain an active forum for discussion of the existing technological alternatives that can be applied to our regional contexts. LACLO intends to be such a forum, where researchers, developers, and educational practitioners are able to share their experiences and technological advances in the field of learning technology and to integrate these various technological developments into their teaching and learning contexts.

This year the 15th LACLO edition will held from October 19-23, 2020, in the city of Loja, Ecuador coordinated by the Universidad Técnica Particular de Loja. LACLO 2020 will be also co-located with CLEI 2020, the Latin American conference in computer science. This will be an interesting opportunity to meet each other.

Submissions to LACLO 2020 are welcome in the form of:

Research papers: Authors are invited to submit original papers reporting original academic or research in the area of Learning Technologies that must not have been submitted to or published in any other workshop, conference, or journal. The conference will accept full papers describing completed work, work-in-progress papers with preliminary results, as well as position papers reporting inspiring and intriguing new ideas. Full papers up to 5 pages, describing original work that has not been previously published, accepted for publication nor is currently under review. These papers will undergo a review process and those that are accepted will be presented orally during the conference and published in the conference proceedings. Short papers of up to 3 pages, describing ongoing research work. These papers will undergo a review process and those that are accepted will be presented orally during the conference and published in the symposium proceedings.

Competition of Learning Object and/or Applications for Educational Innovation. Authors should submit the Learning Object or Application for Educational Innovation, including a text file (free format) with basic information: authors, subject, audience and technical requirements (if any). Along with the Object/Application and its metadata, the author should send a short paper (following the standard format of conference papers) describing: the methodology and technologies used during the development, the learning experiences with the Object/Application and any other relevant feature. The resource and its respective short paper will be evaluated by a committee of experts. Finalists will present their learning objects at the conference. Short papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference. Submission process will be announced later.
