o Please follow the UBCWPL style sheet, as follows:

Manuscripts should be printed camera-ready on a laser printer. Do not
number pages, but pencil numbers lightly on the back of the page.
-12 point font throughout, footnotes 10 point, all in Times font.

-No right justification.
-All margins should be 1 inch except the outside (binding) margin which
should be 1.5 inches. This means that odd numbered pages (for example, page
1) will have a 1.5 inch margin on the left and a 1 inch margin on the right,
whereas even numbered pages (for example, page 2) will have a 1 inch margin
on the left and a 1.5 inch margin on the right. Top and bottom margins for
all pages are 1 inch.
First Page:
-Leave a blank line, then enter the title of the paper on the next line,
centred and bolded.
-Only capitalize the first word and other standardly capitalized words.
-Leave a blank line, then enter your name, centred but not bolded. On the
next line, state your affiliation e.g. University of British
Columbia centred, but not bolded
-Leave two blank lines, then enter the abstract of the paper. Abstract
should be indented 0.5 inches on both sides and fully justified. The
abstract should summarize the main point of the paper and should be less
than 150 words.
-Leave two blank lines then begin with the text.

Spacing and section headings:
-Single space. Do not leave a blank line between paragraphs. Indent each
paragraph 0.5 inches.
- Please number your sections starting at 1 (not 0).
- Do not include a final period. For example,
 1 Introduction
 1.1 Consonant inventory
-Bold the headings and left-align (not underlined, centred or italicized.)
-Leave one blank line before each heading, and one after.
-Separate example sentences from the text with one blank line.

-Put footnotes at the bottom of the page and separate from the text with a
two inch line.
-Footnotes should be single-spaced with no blank line between entries.
-Do not indent.

-Do not start a new page. Rather, leave two blank lines after the last line
of text and then enter the bolded heading 'References' left-aligned.
-Leave one blank line, then begin listing references.
-Single-space references; do not leave blank lines between entries.
-Additional lines of individual references should be indented 0.5 inches
(hanging indent).

Message 2: Networked Learning in a Global Environment: NL 2002

Date: Wed, 30 May 2001 09:23:41 -0700
Subject: Networked Learning in a Global Environment: NL 2002

The Call for papers hereafter is aimed at the scientific community
interested in Networked Learning:

World Conference
NL 2002 - Networked Learning in a Global Environment:
Challenges and Solutions for Virtual Education

Sponsors of NL 2002

Virtual Global University for Worldwide Education

Counsil of European Professional Informatics Societies

Gesellschaft f�r Informatik E.V.

Technical University of Berlin, Germany

European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder)


Venue and Date 
May 1 - 4, 2002, Technical University of Berlin, Germany

Background and Scope 
Telecommunications, computer networks, multimedia technologies, and the
World Wide Web have opened up entirely new ways of teaching and learning
( across institutions, physical locations, countries, continents, and
time zones. Students may work distributed worldwide and nevertheless
interact in a virtual community. Academic programs are no longer
provided by single institutions only but can be established by networked
organizations like virtual universities or virtual faculties.
Best-of-breed programs are created in the Internet by bringing together
top experts from different schools in a virtual program. Powerful
wireless technologies will accelerate these developments in the future.

Distance education is no longer a matter of "learning in isolation".
Collaborative tools like discussion groups, chatrooms,
videoconferencing, etc. support immediate interaction between students
and teachers and among students in virtual communities. In-company
training does not require travelling and physical presence but can be
done at the workplace. Geographical locations of students and teachers
loose importance. Education in the 21st century is shifting from "real"
to "virtual". Physical classes are more and more replaced by virtual
networks of students and teachers. 

NL 2002 aims to bring together content providers, course developers,
educators, persons responsible for academic programs or corporate
education, platform and tools providers, researchers and system
developers from academia and industry to exchange their ideas and
experiences, to share the best practices and to foster further
development in networked learning.

Conference Topics
The conference focuses on technological and organizational aspects of
networked learning and teaching. Topics include, but are not restricted

Organization of networked learning
* Virtual universities and networked e-learning organizations
* Corporate virtual universities, in-company training in distributed 
* Integrated e-learning systems, portals, marketplaces, and providers
* New academic programs by virtual organizations and cooperation projects
* E-learning for business professionals
* Open source initiatives for e-learning
* Pricing and business models for virtual distance learning
* Success stories and pitfalls in e-learning

* Enabling technologies for networked learning: telecommunications and 
computer networks
* Internet suited multimedia technologies: Audio and video streaming etc., 
learning on demand
* Mobile learning: Wireless technologies, UMTS, GPRS, WAP 
* Leading edge and emerging technologies: Virtual reality, software agents, 
artificial intelligence tools
* Integration of collaborative tools: Discussion groups, chatrooms, 
whiteboards, shared workspaces, e-mail, videoconferencing
* Virtual classrooms for worldwide classes, virtual learning communities
* Virtual management games
* Quality assurance for virtual education

Content production and delivery
* Architectures and platforms for distributed teaching and learning 
* Multimedia production tools, authoring tools, delivery tools
* E-learning life cycle models

* The role of traditional educational institutions in global virtual learning 
* Cross-cultural learning
* Networked learning and developing countries
* Legal aspects and security of networked learning

Contributions describing novel approaches to networked learning,
practical experience, best practices, and cutting-edge future
developments are encouraged.

NL 2002 will include technical sessions as well as special events, such
as keynote presentations, invited plenary talks, tutorials, workshops,
panels, and exhibition.

Regular Papers
Prospective authors are requested to submit a paper of max. 7 pages to
the address below (conference organizer). All papers must be written in
English, starting with a succinct statement of the problem, the results
achieved, their significance and a comparison with previous work.

Poster Presentations
Poster presentations are encouraged for people who wish to receive peer
feedback for their work. Practical examples of applied research are
particularly welcome. Papers discussing the respective posters will be
included in the conference proceedings. (max 4 pages)

Proposals for panels should include a concise outline of the topics to
be addressed (2-3 pages) and list the panel members and their

Proposals for workshops are encouraged. However, workshops should be
clearly distinct from paper sessions, focussing on experimental work,
hands-on experience, case studies, games, interactive exercises, and
open discussions. Proposals should include a concise outline of the
nature of the workshop and the expected outcome (2-3 pages).

Proposals for half-day tutorials (three hours) should clearly indicate
the topic, background knowledge expected of the participants,
objectives, time allocations for the major course topics, and the
qualifications of the instructor(s).

NL 2002 will be accompanied by a professional exhibition. Interested
organisations are requested to contact the conference organizers (see

Submission of papers can be done through our web site. 
*Submissions have to be in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf), Postscript (.ps), or MS Word 
(.doc) format. 
*Submissions must be written in English, starting with a succinct
statement of the problem, the results achieved, their significance and a
comparison with previous work, as well as a list of references. 

Contributions are welcome from those working in the industry as well as
from academics.
