AN ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL EVENT
MOBIlearn and mLearning, the two mobile learning projects supported by the European Commission, are collaborating to organise a series of international conferences on Mobile and Ambient Learning. The conferences build upon the findings and knowledge shared in MLEARN 2002, held at the University of Birmingham, and MLEARN 2003, held at
INMARSAT in London.
The third edition of MLEARN will take place in the Odescalchi Castle on the Bracciano's Lake in Rome, Italy on July 5-6 2004.
Submissions are invited in the following categories:
The tracked sessions are an opportunity to showcase recent work – get feedback, explore ideas and make contact with others working in the same field. Contributions will take the form of research paper presentations, where the presentation should last about 20 minutes, with 5 minutes for questions. A book of papers will be produced, which will contain an international book number (ISBN) to allow future worldwide library reference. A selection of research papers presented will be presented for publishing on international Journals for further education and lifelong learning.
These sessions are primarily an opportunity to present and discuss developmental work with a group of conference members. Areas might relate to the development of hardware and software systems, learning materials, or other work in progress. The content should be designed to stimulate discussion and feedback might be used to support the presenter in continuing their work. An abstract is required to be submitted in advance for this. As an indication, final papers should be approximately 2 pages, although other formats (such as PowerPoint slides or HTML pages) may also be acceptable. This format is recommended for contributors who want to report on developmental rather than research-focused projects, where the structure will be 15 minutes for the session and 10 minutes for discussion.
