CFP: First European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning

Call for Papers

First European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning
- Innovative Approaches for Learning and Knowledge Sharing -

Crete, Greece - October 1-4, 2006

URL: http://www.ectel06.org
Organized by the PRO-LC Cluster


With the shift towards the knowledge society, changing working
conditions and the continuous evolution of information and
communication technologies, peoples' knowledge and skills need
continuous development. Technology enhanced learning is one of the
strategic objectives of the EU/IST Work Programme, with the goal of
"improving the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of learning, for
individuals and organizations, independent of time, place and pace."
Innovative infrastructuctures, methods and approaches are needed to
reach this goal, and will facilitate transfer and sharing of
knowledge between individuals and in organisations. For e-learning,
as in e-commerce and
e-business, systemic changes wrought by emerging technologies are
also changing the relationships between consumption and production -
in this case of knowledge - as what many call 'Web 2.0' becomes more
interactive and user-generated content becomes more widespread.

The First European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning
provides a unique forum for all research related to technology-
enhanced learning, as well as its interactions with knowledge
management, business processes and work environments. It will provide
a competitive yet broad enough forum for technology enhanced learning
research in Europe and world-wide through specialized workshops and
the main conference. The conference will provide unique networking
possibilities for participating researchers throughout the week and
include project meetings and discussions for several EU/IST projects
funded within the 6th framework program under the action line of
Enhanced Learning and Access to Cultural Heritage".

We welcome submissions describing innovative research on all relevant
issues, focusing on aspects from computer science, business and/or
education, as well as experience reports and case studies describing
innovative applications of new learning environments and approaches.
