SEEL-16 is a major international forum for the presentation of innovative ideas, approaches, technologies, systems, findings and outcomes of research and design and development projects in the emerging area of smart technology and its applications in education and training.

SEEL-16 will provide an excellent opportunity for research scientists, academics, engineers and practitioners to meet well-known experts from all over the world and to discuss innovative ideas and approaches, advances in smart technology and intelligent systems, state-of-the-art software and hardware systems, research findings and outcomes, best practices and case studies, national and international projects,
institutional standards and policies, and many other topics related to smart education and e-Learning.

Smart Education and e-Learning 2016 will be co-located under the KES Smart Digital Futures umbrella with our other intelligent systems conferences: IIMSS, AMSTA, IDT and the newly added InMED (Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare). Registration gives access to all of these conferences, together with a paper published in one set of proceedings.

Please see: for more information.


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer as book chapters in a volume of the KES Smart Innovation Systems and Technologies series, submitted for indexing in Scopus and Thomson-Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and the Web of Science.
