The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Pervasive eLearning (PerEL 2006) aims to address the issues of pervasive computing in combination with new types and possibilities of learning, teaching and working. Pervasive eLearning is to be seen as a key technology for tomorrow's e-knowledge society. Here, content, context and community as well as a technical basement are equally important aspects for the realization of a global campus. High-producing discussions at PerEL 2005 showed out that technical pre-requisitions of pervasive eLearning as well as a research roadmap are given. First prototypical experiences are already available, but yet no full solution.

PerEL 2006 covers both the technical as well as the non-technical aspects of pervasive eLearning forcing innovative learning environments by utilization of wireless communication and wearable computing. In combination with session and service mobility as well as device independency, the arising learning environments should have the potential to be accessed by anyone at any place and any time. Learning wherever and whenever needed is to become possible.

PerEL 2006 addresses technologies, algorithms, tools, architectures, organization policies, and applications as well as didactical and pedagogical aspects and trends of pervasive eLearning. After all, it aims at an examination of future visions in that area. It will present original papers that demonstrate new results of research and development in the field of pervasive eLearning. We are looking for results of theoretical, empirical, and practical studies. Topics of interest are all aspects of pervasive eLearning as mentioned above. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • mobile communication (asynchronous, synchronous)
  • service and session mobility
  • document, knowledge, and service management
  • tools and architectures for mobile/ubiquitous eLearning
  • smart devices and device-independent presentation
  • techniques for cooperative learning or working
  • pervasive gaming for learning, eLearning networks
  • realization of pervasive eLearning scenarios
  • best practice studies and experiences

PerEL 2006 will discuss new techniques for the support of mobile teaching, learning and working from a pervasive point of view. As started by its predecessor in 2005, the workshop continues to bring together researchers and developers from different technical and educational disciplines. Its intension is to assemble outstanding work in order to enable the realization of improved pervasive eLearning arrangements.
