As keyboards replace chalkboards, the Web's impact on traditional educational theories and practices are increasingly apparent. It has transformed and expanded the conventional boundaries of education. New innovations such as virtual colleges, laboratories, and universities are creating an abundance of additional areas of study surrounding this innovation. These include innovative hardware and software technology, online testing and assessment, training and teaching applications, and courseware design and development.

WBE 2009 is aimed to provide scholars, faculty, researchers, and administrators in all web-based educational areas with an excellent opportunity to convene with colleagues from approximately 50 countries to discuss innovative ideas, results, and outcomes of research in this new and exciting field.

All papers submitted to this conference will be double-blind peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee and related technical committees. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation, and references. The conference chair makes the final decision on the acceptance or rejection of the paper.

WBE 2009 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

* Advances in Computer Science and Engineering (ACSE 2009)
* Solar Energy (SOE 2009)
