***Call for papers***

Computational Design for Technology Enhanced Learning: Methods, Languages, Applications and Tools (CD4TEL 2011)

organized as a technical session at
International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications
ICCSA 2011 —
Santander, Spain, June 20-23, 2011

Papers to be published by Springer LNCS


Providing computational design support for orchestration of activities, roles, resources, and systems in Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL) is a complex task. It requires integrated thinking and interweaving of state-of-the-art knowledge in computer science, human-computer interaction, pedagogy, instructional design and curricular subject domains. Consequently, even where examples of successful practice or even standards and specifications like IMS Learning Design exist, it is often hard to apply and (re)use these efficiently and systematically. This interdisciplinary technical session aims to bring together practitioners and researchers from diverse backgrounds such as computer science, education, and cognitive sciences to share their proposals and findings related with the computational design of activities, resources and systems for TEL applications.


We are seeking original papers that present promising approaches, applications, methodologies, results, case studies, and tools in the following areas:

- Design languages and notation systems for Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL)
- Standards and specifications for TEL design and modeling
- Workflow modeling for TEL design
- TEL design methodologies and theories
- TEL design applications and authoring tools
- User studies and case studies involving design languages, methods and applications in TEL
- Computational modeling in TEL design
- Human factors and HCI in design for TEL
- Pattern-based design for TEL
- Meta-models for TEL design
- Architectural design for TEL tools and platforms
- Integration of TEL design languages and metadata
- Visual design interfaces and tools
… and other topics of relevance to the technical session theme.


Full papers (10 to max. 16 pages) in Springer LNCS format are required for review. The submission deadline is December 31, 2010. Submissions will be handled through an electronic submission system.

Detailed information on submission procedure will be posted on the CD4TEL website.
