Call for papers - 6th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies (ICALT2006)

Theme: "Advanced Technologies for Life-Long Learning". Life-long learning becomes much more achievable as versatile infrastructures for mobile communication and portable Web access emerge. Supplementary to this, social software for supporting learners in sharing common views and actually build authentic understanding on relevant themes for learning needs to be conceptualized and experimented with.

The new roles for teachers, coaches, mentors, and fellow learners are attracting the increasing attention of researchers. Common efforts are being made to characterize learner profiles and to label portfolios on earlier learning. This conference opens its door for presenting and discussing vivid, creative solutions and experimental work at the point of collaborative LEARNING via advanced media.

The conference will bring together people who are working on the design, development, use and evaluation of technologies that will be the foundation of the advanced technologies for life-long Learning. We invite submission of papers reporting original academic or industrial research in the area of Advanced Learning Technologies. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Complete papers will be required for review process; only abstracts will not be sufficient. All authors of accepted submissions will be required to complete IEEE Copyright Form. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions for a Special Issue of the SSCI indexed Journal of Educational Technology & Society (ISSN 1436-4522).
