ICWL 2017
16th International Conference on Web-based Learning

20-22 September 2017
Cape Town, South Africa


ICWL is an annual international conference on Web-based learning, founded by the Hong Kong Web Society. The first ICWL was held in Hong Kong in 2002. Since then, ICWL has been held in Australia (2003), China (2004), Hong Kong (2005), Malaysia (2006), United Kingdom (2007), China (2008), Germany (2009), China (2010), Hong Kong (2011), Romania (2012), Taiwan (2013), Estonia (2014), China (2015) and Italy (2016).

In 2017 we are organizing the 16th ICWL conference in Cape Town, South Africa. It will feature a technical program of refereed papers selected by the international program committee, keynote addresses, and a Doctoral Consortium.

In conjunction with ICWL 2017 the "2nd International Symposium on Emerging Technologies for Education" (SETE) will also be held. SETE collects the traditional workshop activities managed by ICWL in the past years, and additionally features a novel organization in Tracks. These Workshops and Tracks will add new and hot topics on Technology Enhanced Learning, into the overall conference experience.
