Call For Papers

WTMS-ITS2012 Call for Papers
Web 2.0 Tools, Methodology and Services for Intelligent Tutoring Systems
Held in Conjunction with ITS 2012, June 14-18, 2012 Chania, GREECE

Themes and Goals

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from Social
Network, Web 2.0 Area with different approaches of Intelligent Tutoring
for a more significant contribution that improve the quality of ITS.
Researchers are using intelligent approach to facilitate teaching and
learning, E-learning researchers use their methodology to enhance
learning, Social researches talk about using their facilitations to
enhance a collaborative learning and to gather students and teachers
online, Semantics Web and Web Science researchers are using semantics to
extract meaning and use them to build understandable e-courses.
Additionally, Web 2.0 is becoming gradually more important for students
and teacher as well. This is why we also want to focus on all the services
that the Web can provide in a transdisciplinary approach.

The main goal of this workshop is to develop a vision for ITS based on a
Social Network learning and to discuss the state-of-the-art, open
problems, challenges and innovative research approaches in adaptation and
personalization for the Social Network learning with ITS. It intends to
explore the promises of the Web 2.0 in the broad area of ITS by gathering
researchers from the areas of Semantic Web, Social Web, E-Learning,
Collaborative Learning, Adaptive Learning, Agent techniques, Machine
Learning, pedagogy and education.

This workshop brings all of these issues together to encourage researchers
in many topics to discuss the following questions:

1.How do we use Web 2.0 services to enhance ITS?
2.How do we use Web Science to enhance learning?
3.How do we merge Web 2.0, and Semantics Web to enhance learning methodology?

4.What are the most efficient tools, models, techniques, and services to
support learning with Web 2.0 learners?
5.How do we use personalization methodologies to support ITS with Web 2.0

Original papers related to the design, implementation and evaluation of
ITS based on Web 2.0, Semantic Web, and Web Science are solicited.
Topics of Interest

-We solicit original contributions in the following areas, but are not
limited to:
-New social ITS applications
-Social network and folksonomy development: Recommending friends,
-tags, bookmarks, blogs, music, communities etc.
-Social Semantic recommendations and Adaptation in social networks
-Social network analysis for learners
-Social applications and recommendation evaluations
-Web 2.0 user interfaces, rich media ITS.
-Web Science topology of Web based ITS
-Web Services for ITS
-Linked Data Web to enhance E-learning
-Exploiting folksonomies, social network information, interaction,
-User context and communities or groups for ITS
-Semantic Web ITS, use of ontologies or microformats
-Empirical evaluation of social ITS techniques.
-ITS based on Web 2.0
-ITS Adaptation and personalization with Social Network
-ITS based on Semantics Web.
