The Third IEEE International Workshop on
Multimedia Technologies for E-Learning (MTEL)
A workshop held in conjuction with the

The 9th IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM2008)

December 15-17, 2008
Berkeley, USA

Call for Papers

Due to its potential to make learning easier, more convenient, and more
effective, education is one of the preeminent areas of applications for

Video capturing of lectures to produce e-learning content has
become common practice. Simulations allow to explore experiments
which would be too expensive or too dangerous to be conducted physically
by students. Multimedia-powered demonstrations are freed from many
physical restrictions such as the availability of an object to study
or the timescale of an effect to observe. Teaching enriched by vivid
presentations and possibility for interaction for students can also gain
from improved learner's motivation. Concepts may be given perceivable
existence in a demonstration and the observability of important details
can be augmented.

Quality control and learning processes with feedback loops are considered
to be important concepts for more effective and sustainable e-learning solutions.
Multimedia technologies facilitate the evaluation, improvement, and assurance
of quality in loopback controlled e-learning processes. Multimedia feedback
from individual and collaborative learning processes is essential for loopback
control, spanning from human feedback on e-learning processes, computer-generated
multimedia feedback, feedback concerning the transition from traditional to
multimedia content (including authoring processes), and meta-feedback.
The goals are the online adaptation of a multimedia e-learning system,
the improvement of the quality of the next version of such a system,
or the integration of the quality feedback in the teaching/learning process
(e.g., in a university course).

Most of these topics involve techniques from artificial intelligence,
computer vision, multimedia, but also human computer interaction,
and psychology. This workshop aims at bringing together researchers
who are interested in this intersection area between the technological
point of view and the human-centered view. The topics include but are
not limited to:

- Automated lecture recording and presentation techniques
- Automated lecture analysis and indexing
- Classroom note taking and whiteboard capturing and analysis
- Automated analysis of learning and teaching interactions
- Repositories for multimedia education
- Multimedia information retrieval for educational use
- Intelligent searching and navigation in e-learning portals
- Interactive computer-based training
- Simulations, animations, and virtual laboratories in teaching
- Virtual reality and augmented reality in education
- Multimedia authoring software for e-learning
- Implicit and explicit learner feedback
- User Tracking
- Quality measures and assessment
- Scaffolding
- Support for multimedia authoring processes with feedback loops

Workshop Proceedings
The workshop solicits regular technical papers of up to 6 pages
(IEEE double-column format). Workshop papers will be official
publications of IEEE which will be included in IEEEXplore and also be
available as printed workshop proceedings.

A number of selected papers will be invited for extension and
publication in a special issue of ITSE (International Journal
of Interactive Technology and Smart Education) published by
Troubador, UK.

Submission Details:
Papers must be original and not submitted to or accepted by any
other conference or journal. Papers should be submitted in electronic
form (PDF) to the organizers at
Submissions must be formatted according to the 8.5x11 inch double
column IEEE CS proceedings format and must not exceed 6 pages. For
