The EC-TEL conference has become the major venue for technology-enhanced learning researchers in Europe. European framework projects have always been an important backbone for the EC-TEL conference. At the same time, EC-TEL has been an important venue to showcase project results and network with other projects. We are again expecting participation from the European Commission as well.
As in the previous years, EC-TEL therefore offers a number of opportunities for European projects to get involved:
(1) Demos and Posters ("TEL in Action"): This year, EC-TEL will have a specific focus on interactive submissions like demos and posters. So we would be particularly looking forward to seeing projects showcase their prototypes and visionary ideas on the EC-TEL Prototype Slam Session. Submissions for demos and posters will close at 02 April. For more information, please contact the Poster and Demonstration Chair Davinia Hernández-Leo, firstname.lastname@example.org
(2) Project Workshops: In past years, many EU projects have taken the opportunity to organize a workshop at EC-TEL about a more focused topic. Projects have enjoyed this opportunity to engage a wider audience in their developments, and to showcase and gather feedback about their results. Submissions for workshop proposals will also close at 02 April. For more information, please contact the Workshop Chair Tobias Ley, email@example.com
(3) Project Meetings: Projects will also have the opportunity to organize their project meetings at the conference site. We have reserved a number of rooms for these meetings and ask that you contact the conference organizers if you would like to book a room for such a purpose. For more information, contact the local organization chair Christoph Igel, firstname.lastname@example.org
Of course, regular submission of papers is also still open until 02 April. We hope you take this opportunity to showcase your project to the wider European TEL community, and we look forward to seeing you at EC-TEL 2012 in Saarbrücken.
