SETE 2020
5th International Symposium on Emerging Technologies for Education
in conjunction with 19th International Conference on Web-based Learning (ICWL 2020)
Ningbo, China, October 20-24, 2020
(Call for Workshop Proposals)
The SETE 2020 organizing committee invites researchers from academia and industry to present proposals for the organization of workshops, to be held in conjunction with the main conference. The purpose of a workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel ideas, related to active and emerging topics in research on education.
For each workshop, the organizers will be responsible for setting up the workshop website, advertising the workshop, coordinating the review process, maintaining the SETE workshop co-chairs informed, and collecting the camera-ready papers.
The accepted workshop papers will be published in a post-conference proceedings volume of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), together with the main conference papers. In order for the accepted papers to be included in the proceedings, at least one author of each paper will have to produce a full registration to the main SETE conference, associated univocally to the paper. The workshop papers can be full papers (10 pages), or short papers (6 pages), produced in the Springer LNCS format of the SETE conference proceedings.
Workshop proposals submission:
Please email your proposal as a Doc/Docx/PDF attachment directly to the workshop co-chairs (see below). You can also send them inquiries in case you need clarifications.
Deadline for the submission of the workshop proposals is May 15, 2020. The workshop proposals will be reviewed on a continuous basis, and acceptance or rejection will be notified within 10 days from the submission. Prospective proponents are encouraged to send their proposals as early as possible.
