Call For Papers

Call for Papers
The 15th International
Learning and Technology Conference

Internet of Things (IoT):
Embedding Intelligence

25th – 26th February 2018
9th – 10th Jumada Al-Akhirah 1439
Jeddah, KSA

The pervasive nature of smart devices and Web 2.0/3.0 technologies has set the pace for rapid digital transformation of not only how governments are redefining their services and delivery, or how organizations conduct business but also the way citizens live in society. The Internet of Things (IoT) has similarly transformed the educational landscape and paved the way for enriched learning experiences. In addition to optimizing the technology enablers to IoT, society also needs to address the security, social, privacy and psychological aspects of the IoT ecosystem.

The 15th International Learning and Technology (L&T 2018) Conference is a unique opportunity for researchers, entrepreneurs, technology developers and policy makers to address current challenges and advances in the field. Specifically, it will examine the modern practices and potential of IoT and the way it affects the digital transformation, innovation, and social, economic and educational developments both locally and globally.

The conference will feature keynote presentations, thought-provoking paper presentations, workshop sessions and a stimulating panel discussion covering the latest developments in the IoT ecosystem. Join us and explore new collaboration opportunities, cultivate your social and knowledge networks, and compliment your core experience!

The L&T 2018 conference is co-sponsored by the IEEE Western Region Section and the IEEE Computer Society (C16).

All accepted papers will be published on the IEEE Xplorer website and the best papers will be published in the international Journal of Knowledge Society Research.

If this is your first time using EasyChair, you will need to create an EasyChair Account at Upon completion of registration, you will receive a notification email from EasyChair, after which you will need to log in and submit your paper in pdf format.
Please follow the IEEE format for structuring paper submissions:

ϖ Full Paper: maximum of 8pages
ϖ Workshop Proposals: maximum of 4 pages

Submissions should be sent to the following link:

All papers will be reviewed through a blind review process. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, of which the three best peer-reviewed papers will be awarded a full scholarship (includes travel, accommodation and visa fee) to present at the conference.

Please direct any questions to the following email:


The 15th L&T 2018 Conference offers the opportunity to deliver workshops. The aim of the workshops is to encourage discourse on current research and explore opportunities for further developments which are related to any topic within the context of the conference. Anyone interested in presenting a workshop will be required to submit a workshop proposal (including a workshop title, presenter information and abstract) which will be evaluated regarding relevance and anticipated interest. The same deadlines apply as for paper submissions.


Stay tuned for information on the Effat IoT Challenge!
