SPECIAL TRACK ON XR & IMMERSIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENTS at IEEE TALE 2021: An International Conference on Engineering, Technology & Learning
5-8 December 2021 - In-Person/Hybrid

Submission Deadline: 18 July 2021

Organized in conjunction with the Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN at, the Special Track on XR & Immersive Environments for Learning at IEEE TALE 2021 will focus on the use of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR) and related technologies for creating environments and experiences that excite, inspire and engage learners in immersive ways. Of interest are reports of both research studies and applications covering the entire spectrum of immersive platform types, including desktop, mobile, wearable and room-based (e.g., CAVE). Authors and presenters are encouraged to think creatively in terms of how they might frame their work to accommodate different conceptions of and perspectives on immersion.

Prospective authors are invited to prepare submissions of two (2) to eight (8) A4 pages (including tables, figures and references) in standard IEEE double-column format, using the following template: conference-template. Use of any other IEEE templates is NOT acceptable as there are subtle differences between those templates and the conference template that will affect the consistency in the appearance of papers published in the proceedings.
- Do not change the paper size (A4) or margins in the template.
- The headers and footers must remain empty. (They should not contain page numbers or anything else!)
- Formatting of the paper must be done using the pre-defined MS-Word styles in the template, rather than manually. The paper must use all the predefined font styles, sizes etc. as per the template.
- Basic examples of citations and references are included in the template, but authors are required to fully adhere to the guidelines and instructions stipulated in the IEEE Reference Guide. (Where there are conflicts between the template and the IEEE Reference Guide, the IEEE Reference Guide prevails.)
- Please ensure that all template text (guidance text for composing and formatting conference papers) is removed from your conference paper prior to submission.

Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission through the online submission system, and a double-blind review process will be used to evaluate all submitted papers.

Submit your paper:

All accepted and registered full, short and work-in-progress papers that are presented at TALE 2021 as well as all extended abstracts describing the nontraditional sessions presented at the conference will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to the IEEE Xplore digital library. Content loaded into Xplore is made available by IEEE to its abstracting and indexing partners, including Elsevier (Scopus, Ei Compendex), Clarivate Analytics (CPCI-part of Web of Science) and others, for potential inclusion in their respective databases.
In addition, the authors of selected papers may be invited to submit revised and expanded versions of their papers for possible publication in the IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies (2019 JCR Impact Factor: 2.714) or another indexed journal, subject to the relevant journal's regular editorial and peer-review policies and procedures.
