EC-TEL 2013

Eighth European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning

Scaling up learning for sustained impact

Paphos (Cyprus), 17 - 21 September 2013

Call for Workshops

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.

The workshop selection will be handled competitively: proposals will be ranked according to innovativeness, extent of interaction, overall quality, and comprehensiveness of planning. Only 7 to 8 workshop proposals will be chosen. Workshop organizers are encouraged to propose innovative and interactive formats, which will be given priority in the selection process. Examples of scaling up learning for sustained impact are particularly welcome.

Identification of workshop participants, solicitation of workshop contributions and publication of workshop outcomes will be handled by the workshop organizers themselves. In publishing the workshop contributions, workshop organizers are encouraged to target high-quality publication outlets (international impact-rated journals, including special issues in these).

Each accepted workshop is expected to produce a document (for example, a flipchart/poster or a PowerPoint slidepack) synthesising the key outcomes of the workshop and summarising agreed follow-on activities. Workshop organizers will be expected to deliver a short (2 min) presentation of these key outcomes at the EC-TEL 2013 Prototype Slam.


In addition to the regular sessions and workshops, EC-TEL offers a unique opportunity for European Projects in TEL to hold face-to-face meetings. Please contact the local organization chair at your earliest convenience to book meeting rooms.
