WBC2006 conference (CFP): 11 November 2005 (San Sebastian)

Submission Deadline: 11 November 2005

February 26-28, 2006 - San Sebastian, Spain
& nbsp; (

* Conference background and goals

The mission of this conference is to publish and integrate scientific results and act catalytically to the fast developing culture of web communities. The conference invites original papers, review papers, technical reports and case studies on WWW in particular the emerging role of so-called WWW-based Communities.

Domain: It is increasingly important for our culture to bring people together and to promote dynamics in professional organizations, mutual understanding, learning and harmony. Creating "virtual communities" is one major way to do this. The Web Based Communities 2006 conference aims at sharing and aggregating scientifically proven methods on how to organize and moderate WWW-based communities. These communities do not limit participants to particular locations - the international and multicultural dimension is a most challenging one. Good WWW communities undergo a continuous evolution and adapt to the ch anging world. The nature of these communities can be corporate, scientific, social or educational. Pragmatic questions which need to be addressed include: What software tools are the most adequate and how to use them? How to promote your community so that new members can find it? How to protect the members' privacy? How to moderate discussions and how to provide information that people can use? How to create and maintain a sense of trust and commitment among the members? In addition, sociology, education, communication and philosophy issues are addressed as the main disciplines reflected in building WWW-based communities, although critical theories on societies and post-modernism are also relevant starting points. New and imminent technologies will be discussed.

Objectives: The Web Based Communities 2006 Conference aims at bringing together new vital understanding of WWW communities and what new initiatives mean. Each new perspective is potentially a catalyst fo r finding new architectures. National and regional-oriented communities may soon be relegated to a subordinate position compared to interest-oriented communities. Multiculturalism, critical thinking, expressing aesthetic aspects of our identity, and finding sparring partners for sharpening our ideologies, are all processes that need the new communication infrastructures.

The targeted audience is scientists and members and moderators of WWW communities who feel responsible for optimizing its quality and effect.

* Format of the Conference
The conference will comprise invited talks and oral presentations. The proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a book. The better papers will be candidate for the "International Journal of Web Based Communities" (IJWBC); ISSN: 1477 - 8394 [4 issues per year]

Årets tema för Netlearningkonferensen är Pedagogiskt nyskapande genom nätbaserat lärande. Lärdomar från nätbaserat och flexibelt lärande visar att detta sätt att organisera utbildning kan vara en katalysator för förändring och nyskapande av den pedagogiska verksamheten.

Konferensen syftar till att belysa hur nätbaserat lärande kan fungera som en hävstång i arbetet med pedagogiskt nyskapande, samt att samla de nordiska erfarenheterna på området. Detta gäller såväl empiriska erfarenheter som kunskaper grundade i forskningsteoretiska studier. Ett annat syfte är att etablera kontakter mellan verksamma pedagoger m fl och den nordiska forskarkåren.

Du kan presentera ditt bidrag på tre olika sätt.


Ordförande i granskningskommittén: Alastair Creelman, samordnare för distansutbildning vid högskolan i Kalmar.


Du presenterar ditt bidrag muntligt i en session med fokus på diskussion och dialog. Sessionerna är 1.5 timme långa. Bidragen kan se ut på följande sätt;

- antingen en föreläsning på 20 minuter plus 10 minuter för frågor

- eller att du/ni är beredd att leda en hel diskussionssession (1,5 timme). Du börjar med en inledning på 20 minuter där en viktig fråga väcks därefter öppnas det för en längre diskussion som kan ta resten av sessionen. Här är det viktigt att du/ni agerar som diskussionsledare i samarbete med sessionens moderator, se till att involvera alla deltagare. Din uppgift blir även att summera diskussionen i slutet. Vi ser gärna att diskussionen blir någon form av debatt.


Ordförande i granskningskommittén: Prof. Per Flensburg, Växjö universitet.


Forskningssessionerna avser att presentera nordisk forskning för pedagogiska utövare m fl inom området samt att erbjuda nordiska forskare en träffpunkt. Bidragen bör beakta konferensens tema, Pedagogiskt nyskapande genom nätbaserat lärande.

De bästa forskningsbidragen publiceras i ett specialnummer av Journal of Educational Technology & Society, som utges 2007. Konferensbidragen som avser att bli bedömda för sådan publicering måste vara på engelska.


Ansvariga: Ruth Bourke Berglund och Cecilia Aspholm, Myndigheten för Sveriges nätuniversitet.


Du som får ditt bidrag accepterat till Knytkalaset kommer att visa upp ditt projekt eller ditt arbete för en publik med stort intresse för nätbaserat lärande. Det kommer att hållas två sessioner om ca 1,5 timme vardera där konferensdeltagarna kommer att mingla runt och lyssna och ta del av de olika bidragen. Ert projekt kommer att tilldelas en monter på 4 kvm, utrustad med en Internetuppkopplad dator, projektor, spotlight, bord samt två stolar.

Samtliga konferensbidrag kommer att finnas för nerladdning på Netlearning 2006s webbplats.

Du inbjuds härmed att skicka in ditt bidrag enligt ovan nämnda deadlines i elektroniskt format på konferensens webbplats. Senast 20 februari 2006 får du besked om ditt bidrag accepterats eller inte.

Ta chansen att presentera ditt arbete för en nordisk publik med stort intresse inom nätbaserat lärande!
