Additional Information

Keynote speaker: Dr. Gilly Salmon, University of Leicester Following in the tradition of previous ICICTE conferences, ICICTE 2008 will bring together an international community of scholars and practitioners in a forum setting. Opportunities for discussion on current thinking and practices in applications of technology to education are enhanced by the limited number of participants. For a full listing of topics for ICICTE 2008, please consult the conference Aims and Themes. We are pleased to note that the journals Campus-Wide Information Systems, the UCFV Research Review, and Interactive Learning Behaviour will again devote special issues to selected papers from ICICTE. Closing ceremonies will include presentation of the UCFV Graduate Student Paper Prize and other awards. First given in 2004, this award recognizes the work of upcoming scholars and practitioners. The conference’s social programs have always brought Greek hospitality to the fore of our meetings and discussions. This year’s social program includes the opening night reception, the closing ‘Greek Night’ dinner, and three lunches, including the UCFV President’s lunch.
