Final Call for Contributions

EC-TEL 2013: Eighth European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning
"Scaling Up Learning for Sustained Impact"

17-21 September 2013, Paphos, Cyprus

- We are pleased to announce a keynote talk by Sir John Daniel and
Ms Stamenka Uvalic-Trumbic on "Making Sense of MOOCs:
The Evolution of Online Learning in Higher Education".
More keynotes to follow.

- The deadline for full submissions was extended to 9th of April to give
authors some space for family time over Easter.
!NOTE: submission of an abstract of your contribution is still required
by 25 March! There will be no more extensions to these deadlines.

- Updated guidelines for Demo and Poster submissions

The European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL) is a
unique opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers
to address current challenges and advances in the field. Through EC-TEL,
established and emerging researchers as well as practitioners,
entrepreneurs, and technology developers explore new collaborations,
strengthen networks, and complement their core experience.

While Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) has created enormous changes in
schools, universities and at the workplaces, innovations have tended to
be unsustainable. Too often, initiatives need a high degree of effort to
be sustained, and are consequently endangered when funding stops. Many
initiatives now focus on scaling up bottom-up initiatives to create
higher and more sustainable impact. These initiatives require an
interdisciplinary perspective in TEL research and development, drawing
on core disciplines of Computer Science, Education, Psychology,
Cognitive Science, and Social Science. This blend of research traditions
has always been a strength of EC-TEL and its vibrant community.

We invite contributions for long and short reserach papers,
demonstrations, and posters. See the website for more details:

Note: the European Computer-Supported Cooperative Work (eCSCW)
conference will be hosted from 21-25 September at the same location
as EC-TEL 2013. So there is a good opportunity to visit both
conferences at the same time.

Please submit a concise, max. 4 pages description of a (running!)
prototype, clearly showing how your technological innovation realises
a learning innovation. All accepted demonstrations will be invited to
participate in the EC-TEL 2013 Demo Sprint session. The audience will
vote for the best EC-TEL prototype in this session and the winner will
be awarded. We encourage demonstration submissions that complement an
EC-TEL research paper submission. Please find the expected structure
of demo submissions at the EC-TEL website:


Posters report on significant work in progress. We are planning an
interactive poster and demonstration session in which you can present
your work and elicit feedback from EC-TEL participants. Please submit
a paper up to a maximum of 4 pages long describing your work and the
results that you plan to achieve until September 2013. A 2-page summary
of this will then be published within the EC-TEL proceedings. Please
find the expected structure of poster submissions at the EC-TEL


EC-TEL 2013 offers the opportunity to host several workshops. Parties
interested to organize a workshop are asked to submit a proposal of
maximum 4 pages long outlining the theme of the workshop, workshop format,
expected participants and domains addressed, dissemination activities,
workshop organizing committee, and organizational requirements. Proposals
should be submitted via the EasyChair system of EC-TEL. We are exploring
possibilities for arranging publication of all workshop papers in a
post-conference proceedings volume to be published by Springer. Workshop
organizers should indicate in their proposals whether they would like to
contribute to such a post-conference proceedings volume, or whether they
are targeting other high-quality publication outlets such as international
peer-reviewed journals.


- EC-TEL 2013 also offers to host project meetings
- There will be a doctoral consortium for PhD students
- You can become a sponsor of the conference
