Call For Papers

International Workshop on Semantic Technologies in Ubiquitous, Massive and Smart Learning (STUMS 2014)
joint with IEEE INCoS 2014

LOCATION AND DATES
Salerno, Italy
September 10-12, 2014

SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
Nowadays, ICTs are sufficiently mature and solid to support ubiquitous, accessible-to-all and situated learning processes. With respect to the aforementioned consideration, it is needed to investigate three promising fields (Ubiquitous Learning, MOOCs and Smart Learning Environments) of Technology Enhanced Learning which are focus of numerous researchers, practitioners and developers. These fields partially overlap, in a sense that, for instance, solutions provided for Ubiquitous Learning can be adopted in Smart Learning Environments or, moreover, MOOC systems, if opportunely integrated in larger technological platforms could provide effective solutions for Ubiquitous Learning scenarios. Also, issues like, for instance, interoperability, integration, knowledge extraction, etc. are common for all the above fields and can be challenged by means of Semantic Technologies and Computational Intelligence approaches.
The main goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners who are interested in addressing issues and challenges related to Ubiquitous Learning, MOOCs and Smart Learning Environments mostly by leveraging on Semantic Technologies and Computational Intelligence techniques. Interdisciplinary works (e.g. fusion of pedagogies and technologies), theoretical papers and papers describing practical experiences (also in designing and developing systems and applications) will be welcome.


TOPICS
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
-Integration and Interoperability for Seamless Learning
-Storage, Inference and Querying strategies for Semantic Data in Cloud
-Semantic Web in Big Data and Learning Analytics
-Extracting Actionable Knowledge from Learning Resources
-Educational Data Mining to face dropouts and increase Engagement and Motivation
-Affective Computing and Emotion Detection in Smart Learning Environments
-Situation, Context, Learner and Group Modeling
-Ontology-driven methodologies and tools for Content Authoring and Instructional Design
-Modeling and Reasoning Approaches for Competences, Competencies and Capabilities
-Reasoning with Semantic Web-based Metadata and Ontologies for Learning Resources
-Adaptive/Personalized Learning and Intelligent Tutoring Systems
-Context-awareness and Situation-awareness in Smart and Ubiquitous Learning Systems
-Social Semantic Web as Enabling Platform for MOOCs and MOOC Networks
-Internet of Things support for Learning and Smart Learning Environment
-Semantic and Social Sensor Networks support for Situation Assessment in Learning Scenarios
-Semantic, Mobile and Gesture-based Interfaces
-Social and Semantic Technologies to enable Serendipitous Learning
-Collective Knowledge supporting (semi) automatic generation of Learning Content
