CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
8-10 December 2011, Hong Kong
The International Conference on Web-based Learning (ICWL) 2011 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference.
The purpose of a workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas related to active and emerging topics in web-based learning. From the 8th-10th of December, 2011, the tenth ICWL 2011 will be held in Hong Kong.
All workshop papers of ICWL 2011 will be published as a separate volume in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), which will be indexed by EI.
In order to give the authors an opportunity to revise their papers in the light of the feedback they might receive during the discussions of their papers upon presentation of their works, all accepted workshop papers will be published as a second post-proceeding volume after the meeting. This will also allow workshop organizers have more time to attract more good papers.
The ICWL Program Committee invites researchers from industry and academia to take this opportunity and submit WORKSHOP PROPOSALS on hot topics in the scope of the conference. All proposals will be reviewed and evaluated by the ICWL Organizing Committee. Workshop attendees have to register and pay for the full ICWL conference.
Workshop Proposals Submission Deadline: July 1, 2011.
Notification of acceptance: July 15, 2011.
Workshop author registration deadline: Oct 15, 2011.
(proposed workshop paper submission deadline: Sept 1, 2011; proposed notification of author acceptance: Sept 30, 2011)
