SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

The Second 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

http://www.icsc-naiso.org/conferences/nl2002

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.

 ABOUT ABERYSTWYTH

 Aberystwyth is a small and friendly Welsh town. It faces on to the 
seafront and has its own pier. The university is in the town's suburbs - 
it has a wonderful library, with copies of all books that are printed 
within the United Kingdom.

The town's beach enables you to relax in deckchairs and enjoy the 
sunshine, further along the coast are large expanses of golden sand. The 
area around Aberystwyth is outstandingly beautiful, with a backcloth of 
hills and mountains. If you enjoy sports, games, walking, sailing and 
fishing, Aberystwyth and the surrounding area is a great place to visit.
