IEEE DEST 2010: Call for Paper zu E-Learning-Ökosystemen

Special Track on E-Learning Ecosystems
The 4th IEEE International Conference on Digital
Ecosystems and Technologies

13-16 April 2010, Dubai, UAE

Submission deadline: 31 January 2010

The main conference theme of DEST 2009 is to strengthen ICT to support different digital ecosystems, especially focusing on cyber engineering and human space computing. It is the study of triangle relationship between industries, human endeavours and advanced ICT.

The special track E-Learning Ecosystems focuses in particular on approaches and application of ecosystems for knowledge transfer and learning purposes.

21st century society makes demands in virtually every facet of one’s life. One is expected to keep pace with mutable situations, adapt skills and expertise, and collaborate and compete to provide to some extent value for the society. As a result, modern instructional design, learning goals and
processes as well as appropriate learning environments must support the development of skills and expertises. Consequently, educational approaches have changed dramatically over time from remedial repetitive learning to today’s learning with an understanding to become more independent in the learning process, strengthen meta-cognitive and teamwork skills as well as
link knowledge in a cultural context in view of lifelong learning. Educational approaches have also been influenced by technology but have also increasingly applied technology over the last decades.

This complexity of modern learning setups of the 21st century demands appropriate models and reference architectures which provide support to (a) communicate the conception of topical learning from different viewpoints, (b) identify the multidisciplinary relations of research areas, (c) assess and classify learning approaches and implementations, and (d) provide domain
knowledge for research and development activities. However, such modern learning settings also require flexible approaches and technological solutions. E-Learning Ecosystems can provide both: it offers the foundation for interesting models and frameworks but it also focuses on modern technology as the infrastructure for enhanced e-learning environments.

Based on the concept of ecosystem and digital business ecosystem, this track welcomes original and quality contributions in areas including but not limited to:
• Models and framework for topical learning
• Flexible and distributed learning environments
• Learning and training in virtual organizations
• Knowledge management in educational organizations
• New adaptive e-learning approaches
• Personalized learning environments
• Semantic web based learning environments
• Web 2.0 based learning environments
• Collaborative and group learning
• Trust building in distributed learning environments
• Theoretical bases of e-Learning environments
• Understanding and simulation of large scale e-learning grid environment
• Design, model and framework of e-Learning Systems
• Interdisciplinary Research and e-learning
• E-learning metadata and standards
• Educational Gaming and Multimedia for Learning
• Security and Privacy management in e-learning
• Mobile and Ubiquitous Learning Systems
• Human-centric ubiquitous collaboration
• Human/robot collaboration
• Context dependent learning
• Distance and e-Learning in a global context
• Collaborative e-education, e-learning, and collaborative computing
• Lifelong Learning: continuing professional training & development
