MIS4TEL 2019 : 9th International Conference in Methodologies and Intelligent Systems for Technology Enhanced Learning
Call For Papers
Education is the cornerstone of any society and it serves as one of the foundations for many of its social values and characteristics. Knowledge societies offer significant opportunities for novel ICT tools and applications, especially in the fields of education and learning. In such a context, the role of intelligent systems, rooted in artificial intelligence, has become increasingly relevant to the field of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). New intelligent solutions can be stand-alone or inter-connected to others and can target not only cognitive processes but can also take care of motivational factors. Furthermore, recommender systems are emerging for administering personalized views of a repository of materials, use different strategies and techniques to suggest the right learning items, in general going beyond adaptivity. Moreover, more recently, makerspaces are also emerging as a central possibility to increase learning opportunities and outcomes, especially in the case of “fragile users”, as for example children, elderly people, people with special needs.
The 9th edition of this conference expands the topics of the previous editions in order to provide an open forum for discussing intelligent systems for TEL, their roots in novel learning theories, empirical methodologies for their design or evaluation, stand-alone solutions or web-based ones, and makerspaces, also fostering entrepreneurship and increasing business startup ideas. It intends to bring together researchers and developers from industry, the education field and the academic world to report on the latest scientific research, technical advances and methodologies.
MIS4TEL 2019 will be held in Ávila (Spain) on June 26th-28th, 2019, in parallel with the PAAMS'19 International Conference.
Main Track - Paper submission deadline: EXTENDED 11th February, 2019
Workshops - Paper submission deadline: EXTENDED 11th February, 2019
Doctoral Consortium - Paper submission deadline: 1st March, 2019
Notification of acceptance: 11th March, 2019
Camera-Ready papers due: 29th March, 2019
Conference Celebration: 26th-28th June, 2019.
MIS4TEL welcomes the submission of papers with preference to the topics listed in the call for papers. All submitted papers will undergo a thorough review process. Each contribution will be refereed by at least by two experts in the field using the following set of criteria; relevance, originality, significance, quality and clarity.
The papers must consist of original, relevant and previously unpublished sound research efforts related to any of the topics of the conference.
MIS4TEL papers must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS Template, with a maximum length of 8 pages in length, including figures and references. All proposed papers must be submitted in electronic form, in PDF format, using the Paper Submission Page.
Accepted papers will be included in the MIS4TEL Proceedings published by AISC series of Springer Verlag. At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend MIS4TEL to present the paper in order to have it included in the conference proceedings.

The aim of the Doctoral Consortium is to provide a frame where students can present their on going research work and meet other students and researchers, and obtain feedback on future research directions.
The Doctoral Consortium is intended for students who have a specific research proposal and some preliminary results, but who are still far from completing their dissertation.
All proposals submitted to the Doctoral Consortium will undergo a thorough reviewing process with the aim to provide detailed and constructive feedback. The accepted submissions will be presented at the Doctoral Consortium and published in the conference proceedings.
