CFP SIIE06: Extended Deadline to June 1

>>>>>>>>>>>>> EXTENDED DEADLINE TO JUNE 1 <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<


VIII International Symposium on Computers in Education

Endorsed by: IEEE Technical Committee on Learning Technology


October 24 – 26, 2006. Leon, Spain

* University of Leon. Department of Electrical Engineering and
* ADIE (Association for the Development of Computers in Education)


This Symposium will be an international forum to debate
research and experiences on the application of Information
and Communication Technologies in the field of Education,
not only in the Ibero-American space -as usual in former
editions- but also in the international scenario. Hence,
a special session will be reserved for presentations in English.

This is the 8th edition of the International Symposium on
Computers in Education that is held alternately in Spain
and Portugal. This event already has a recognized trajectory
and a well earned prestige. It is a reference forum and
a meeting point for research groups, groups of development,
users and Institutions.

The Symposium is a forum for the presentation of the
latest advances in the fields of Information and
Communication Technologies applied to Education.
The idea is to gather together different research groups,
professionals, and users in order to facilitate the
communication among them.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:

* Web-based Course Management Systems, Tools and Resources
* Computer Networks and Tele-education (e-learning)
* Information and Communication Technologies in special education
* Human-Computer Interaction applied to Education
* Collaborative Learning
* Artificial Intelligence and Education
* Multimedia and Hypermedia in Educational Software
* Design, Development and Evaluation of Educational Software
* Teacher Training in Communication and Information Technologies
* Methodologies of Use of Communication and Information Technologies in
the Educational Context
* Educational Experiences in the School
* Educational Applications of Ubiquitous Computing
* Communication and Information Technologies in the European Higher
Education Area

Cyberworlds 2006 - submission extended till 24 May


2006 International Conference on CYBERWORLDS

November 28-30, 2006, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
(EPFL), Switzerland

Organized by EPFL VRlab

INTUITION EU Network of Excellence

Cyberworlds are information worlds being formed on Internet either
intentionally or spontaneously, with or without design. As
information worlds, they are either virtual or real, and can be both.
In terms of information modelling, the theoretical ground for the
Cyberworlds is far above the level of integrating spatial database
models and temporal database models. This conference will deal with
large distributed information worlds on Internet as well as methods
and tools used for creating such worlds.


The conference topics include but are not limited to the following

- Philosophy, Evolution, and Ethics of Cyberworlds
- Cyberworlds and their impact on the real worlds
- Cyberethics and Cyberlaws
- Cybersecurity
- Visual Cyberworlds
- Human animation in Cyberworlds
- Virtual Reality in Cyberworlds
- Computer vision and augmented reality for Cyberworlds
- Intelligent agents in Cyberworlds
- Communication in Cyberworlds
- Distributed virtual environments
- Shared virtual worlds
- Data mining and warehousing in Cyberworlds
- Bioinformatics for Cyberlife and medicine
- Healthcare in Cyberworlds
- Cyberworlds for bioengineering
- Cyberinformation systems
- E-business in Cyberworlds
- Cyberworlds for education
- Collaborative work using Cyberworlds
- Cyberworlds for manufacturing
- Cyber fairs and Cyber museums
- Multi-user web games

CW2006 will provide an opportunity for scientists, engineers, and
researchers from around the world to share the latest research,
ideas, and developments in these fields. The conference will consist
of formal paper sessions and hands-on demonstrations where research
groups and vendors will show the state-of-the-art in the field.

Paper Due: 24th May 2006
Notice of Acceptance: 1st July 2006
Camera Ready Due: 28th July 2006
Conference: 28-30 Nov 2006

Full and Short Papers (in English) containing original and
unpublished results are solicited. Full papers are limited to maximum
8 pages (single space, two columns) including figures. Short papers
are limited to 5 pages. All paper submissions must reach us by 24th
May, 2006. Accepted papers will be included in a conference
proceedings published by either IEEE Computer Society.

* Conference background and goals 
The IADIS CELDA 2006 conference aims to address the main issues concerning with the 
evolving learning processes and supporting pedagogies and applications in digital age. 
There have been huge advancements in both cognitive psychology and computing that 
have affected the educational arena. The convergence of these two disciplines has never 
been faster before and this marriage has affected the very basis of the academia. 
Paradigms such as just-in-time learning, constructivist approaches, student-cantered 
learning and collaborative approaches have emerged, and are being supported by 
technological advancements such as simulations, virtual reality and multi-agents systems 
to name a few. This merger has created both opportunities and areas of serious concerns. 
This conference aims to cover both technological as well as pedagogical issues related to 
these developments. Main tracks have been identified (see below). However innovative 
contributions that do not fit into these areas will also be considered as long as they are 
directly related to the overall theme of the conference.

* Format of the Conference 
The conference will comprise of invited talks, oral presentations for discussion-oriented 
papers, and poster sessions for work-in-progress. The proceedings of the conference will 
be published in the form of a book and CD-ROM.

Authors of the best published papers in the CELDA 2006 proceedings will be invited to 
publish extended versions of their papers in Journal of Research on Technology in Education.

* Types of submissions 
Full papers, Short Papers, Reflection papers and Tutorials. All submissions will go through a double-
blind refereeing process with at least two international experts.

* Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following areas: 
- Acquisition of expertise
- Assessing progress of learning in complex domains 
- Assessment of exploratory learning approaches 
- Assessment of exploratory technologies 
- Cognition in education 
- Collaborative learning 
- Educational psychology 
- Exploratory technologies (such as simulations, VR, i-TV and so on)
