T4E 2015 : The 7th IEEE International Conference on Technology for Education
Call For Papers
T4E (Technology for Education) is an annual IEEE international conference on Advanced Learning Technologies and Pedagogy for Technology-Enhanced Learning.
The T4E 2015, will be held at the National Institute of Technology Warangal, Telangana, India during December 10-12, 2015. It will provide a forum to bring together colleagues interested in promoting learning and teaching through the use of technology and sharing the latest research results in this emerging interdisciplinary area.
T4E 2015 is the seventh in a series of annual events with the first held in Bengaluru, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kharagpur, and Kollam in the years 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, 2013, and 2014, respectively.
The organizers invite papers from students, teachers and researchers in academia and industry to present the results of their research and development efforts in education through that use of technology. Papers must report original academic or industrial research in any topic relevant to the conference, including those mentioned below. Complete papers will be required for the review process. Abstracts alone will not be sufficient. If accepted, it is possible that your paper may be selected for a category different from that in which it was submitted. All authors of accepted submissions will be required to complete the Conference's Copyright Form. For the paper to be included in the proceedings, one of the authors will need to register before the final version of the paper is uploaded. All papers submitted will be peer-reviewed.
Paper Submission deadline: 1st July 2015

Bridging urban-rural gap in education
Submission of Papers
The types of submissions include Experience reports, Research Studies, Work in Progress papers, and Workshop proposals. The submissions can be either full-length or short reports. Full-length reports are typically 6-8 pages long while short reports are typically 3-4 pages long. The work reported in both full-length as well as short reports must be original.
Experience reports describe research-based technological implementation for education that worked well and is now recommended to others.
Full-length Experience Reports (6-8 pages)
Full-length Experience Reports may contain detailed descriptions of research behind the implementation, development, evaluation or other applications.
Short Experience Reports (3-4 pages)
Short Experience Reports may contain brief reports of technologies developed, techniques used or results of research.
Research Studies present a careful study, with an appropriate use of methodology (e.g., case study, qualitative methods, quasi-experimental, experimental) to support the investigation and stated results. The methodology does not need to be quantitative; it does, however, need to be appropriate to support the claims made by the author.
Full-length Research Studies (6-8 pages)
Full-length Research Studies may contain detailed description of the background research, details of methodology used, findings of the study, interpretation of the findings, and resulting recommendations for other researchers/practitioners.
Short Research Studies (3-4 pages)
Short Research Studies may focus on small-scale research experiments, that may be extensions of author's previously validated research.
Work-in-Progress Papers (3-4 pages)
Work-in-progress Papers contain original research frameworks, architectures and implementations, where initial results are available but full validation are not yet done. The originality of the work must be clearly visible.
Workshop proposals (2 pages)
Workshops provide an introduction to a topic of immediate interest and usefulness to the community and are designed to devote significant time to hands-on activities by the attendees.
Hands-on activities may include think-pair-share, group discussions, collaborative editing, and programming. Workshop proposers should use the template provided on the conference website to submit their proposals. Workshop proposals will be evaluated based on relevance, anticipated interest, quality, and subject to the availability of appropriate facilities.
Industry Research Track
T4E2015 invites industry experience and systems papers that describe original industry research experiences, case studies, challenges, applications, as well as systems. Industry research paper submissions are limited to 4-6 pages in length. Accepted industry papers will appear in the conference proceedings. Please note that papers marketing, advertising or showcasing company products will be rejected.
PhD students are encouraged to submit their PhD research contributions and work-in-progress, limited to 6 pages, append "(PhD Showcase)" to the title. Student authors of accepted papers will be able to present a summary of their research at the conference. The first author must be the PhD student.
