Meeting Description:

Research on Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) investigates how information and communication technologies can be designed in order to support pedagogical activities. The Evidence based Design (EBD) of a system bases its decisions on empirical evidence and effectiveness. The evidence-based TEL workshop (ebTEL) brings together TEL and EBD. The workshop aims at collecting contributions concerning evidence-based TEL systems, as well as success stories or best practices that educators, education stakeholders or educational psychologists used to improve their students' learning experience, in particular for students with specific difficulties (e.g. poor/slow readers, students living in impoverished communities or families).

The previous edition of ebTEL collected TEL contributions from computer science, artificial intelligence, evidence-based medicine, educational psychology and pedagogy. Like the previous edition, the international ebTEL'13 edition aims at being a forum in which TEL researchers and practitioners alike can discuss innovative ideas, projects, and lessons related to TEL. The meeting will be held in Salamanca on May 22-24, 2013, in parallel with the PAAMS'13 International Conference.


ebTEL has been launched under the collaborative frame provided by the TERENCE project (http://www.terenceproject.eu/). The TERENCE project, n. 257410, is funded by the European Commission through the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, Strategic Objective ICT- 2009.4.2: ICT: Technology-enhanced Learning.

Call for Papers:

Topics and Keywords:

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

- Evidence-based personalisation, user modelling and adaptation in TEL
- Evidence-based games and game learning for TEL
- Knowledge representation and reasoning for evidence-based TEL
- Knowledge management and evidence-based TEL

Expected Participants:

The ebTEL workshop invites contributions in the area of TEL, both from computer science as well as evidence-based medicine, educational psychology and pedagogy. Researchers from these areas and education stakeholders are all expected contributors or participants. The organising committee will particularly encourage the participation of stakeholders and researchers in the educational or TEL field so as to foster the sharing of best practices in the field and disseminate the research progress in the educational context.

Submission Details:

We invite the submission of papers (max. 8 pages in Springer format) reporting original research, not previously published, relevant to the workshop's themes.

All submissions will be carefully reviewed by an international program committee. All submitted papers will undergo a thorough review process; each paper will be refereed by at least two experts in the field based on relevance, originality, significance, quality and clarity.

The proceedings of the previous edition of ebTEL are available via Springer at http://www.springer.com/engineering/computational+intelligence+and+complexity/book/978-3-642-28800-5.
