Call For Papers

The 1st IEEE Conference on LEarning Disabilities & ICT Support will be held in conjunction with the 5th IEEE International Congress on Information Science and Technology (IEEE CiSt'18) on October 21st – 24th 2018 in Marrakech, Morocco. This conference aims to be a multidisciplinary forum of actors from the complementary fields of education, instructional design and ICT. The debate will focus on issues as diverse as the understanding of physical disorders causing the learning disabilities, the development of innovative pedagogical models, appropriate training plans and adaptive digital tools to support learners and lead them to success.

Over the past few years, there has been an exponential increase in the number of learners with learning disabilities and difficulties in their adaptation to the educational programs. Learning disabilities concern the acquisition, organization, retention, comprehension or processing of information. They mainly affect oral language (communication), written language (reading and writing) as well as mathematics (calculation, logical reasoning and problem solving). Several disorders or syndromes of neuropsychological origin can be at the origin of these learning disabilities such as “Dys” disorders (Dyslexia, dysgraphia, dysphasia, etc.), attention deficit (with or without hyperactivity), memory disorders, Asperger's syndrome, autism, etc.
Learning disabilities can have a significant impact on the learner's life and his academic performance. The difficulties are even greater when the educational system adopts classical teaching methods which make the learning more complex.
In this particular learning landscape, technology may play a major role in supporting disabled learners. Indeed, several technology-based solutions are developed in order to compensate the inconveniences and adapt the educational practice. As example, we can cite assistive technology for learners which allows increasing learners’ autonomy, differentiated learning activities, communities of practice for generalizing good practices and pedagogical advice, etc. Several other fields are still to be explored like serious games, ambient intelligent systems, etc.


Topics:

We solicit submission of original ideas and papers describing significant results and developments from both researchers and practitioners in a specific range of fields addressing the following topics:

- E-Learning tools, systems, and applications
- Adaptive learning systems
- Serious games
- Pedagogical models
- Intelligent learning systems
- Early identification of learning disabilities
- Learning assessment and evaluation
- Academic assessment and remediation
- Technological infrastructure
- Inclusive classroom environment
- Open educational practices
- Learning styles and learning strategies


Submission:

Prospective authors should submit by using the online submission platform for IEEE CiSt'18 MNLP conference https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ieeeledict2018 a paper of 4 to 6 pages max (including references) in scholarly English, using the IEEE template.
