** Proceedings

The WMTE 2003 proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press.

** Topics of Interest

We invite full papers, works-in-progress, and posters. The program committee will seek to
achieve a balance of empirical investigations and design studies, including relevant
methodologies from computer science and engineering research as well as cognitive science
and educational research. All submitted papers should address mobile and/or wireless
technologies and provide new insights relating to their use in teaching and learning.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

– Innovative designs and uses of tools to overcome barriers of learning
– Principles and patterns for learner-centered design
– Design of learning activities supported by mobile devices
– Advances in teaching conceptually difficult topics in school
– Interface designs optimized for small screens or other modes of interaction that
fit on mobile devices
– Architectures that support rapid prototyping, reuse, or large-scale test beds
– Techniques of instrumentation devices and networks for research data gathering
– Case studies of teaching and learning
– Surveys of learners that reveal important trends and opportunities
– Analysis of the topology of learning communities
– Evaluation of effectiveness
– Comparisons of alternative designs
– Issues of scaling up to reach large numbers of learners
– Mobile agents for learning

** Paper submission:

– Full papers (maximum 8 pages)
– Works-in-progress (maximum 5 pages)
– Posters (maximum 2 pages)
