In conjunction with The 9th International Conference on Web-based Learning (ICWL 2010)
As computer systems become increasingly large and complex, we are seeing more sophisticated techniques being developed to support e-learning especially in the area of knowledge and data engineering. The rapid development of Web-based learning and new concepts such as virtual classrooms, virtual laboratories and virtual universities introduces many new challenging issues to be addressed. This conference aims at providing an in-depth study of the technical, pedagogical, as well as management issues of Web-based learning. On the technical side, we need to develop effective e-technologies for supporting distance education. On the learning and management side, we need to consider issues such as new styles of learning and different system set-up requirements. Finally, the issue of standardization of e-learning systems should also be considered. IWKDEWL'10 aims at bringing together researchers, educators, technologists and implementers of Web-based learning from around the world to discuss the state of the art in this area.
SCOPE AND INTERESTS
IWKDEWL'10 is the First International Workshop on Knowledge and Data Engineering in Web-based Learning, in conjunction with The 9th International Conference on Web-based Learning (ICWL 2010).
In this Workshop, we call for original papers describing novel knowledge and data engineering techniques that support e-learning. Preference will be given to papers that include an evaluation of users?? experience in using the proposed methods. Areas of interests include, but are not limited to:
- Semantic Web technology for e-learning
- Data modeling (e.g., XML) for efficient management of course materials
- Searching and indexing techniques to support effective course notes retrieval
- User-centric e-learning systems and user interaction management
- Profiling techniques to support grading and learning recommendation
- Data and knowledge base support for pervasive e-learning
- Course material analysis and understanding
- Automatic generation of questions and answers
- Knowledge mining in web-based learning environments
- Collaborative communities for e-learning
Prepare your paper in PDF file with no more than 10 pages in single line spacing according to the Springer LNCS Authors Guideline ( http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0 ) . Submit your paper(s) at the website: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iwkdewl10 . Each submission should be regarded as an undertaking that, if the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors must attend the workshop to present the paper, in order for the paper to be included in workshop proceedings.
All accepted papers will be published as a separate volume in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), which will be indexed by EI. In order to give the authors an opportunity to revise their papers in the light of the feedback they might receive during the discussions of their papers upon presentation of their works, all accepted workshop papers will be published as a second post-proceeding volume after the meeting. Selected papers will be published in special issues of some top international journals.
Submission deadline: September 26, 2010
Notification of acceptance: October 24 2010
Final manuscript due: November 9, 2010
Workshop author registration deadline: November 1, 2010
