ICIW 2010: The Fifth International Conference on Internet and Web Applications and Services May 9-15, 2010 - Barcelona, Spain

Conference Web page: http://www.iaria.org/conferences2010/CfPICIW10.html

And here is an extract of the call of interest for us:

" During the last years, different web applications based on the use of Internet environments have been introduced to help teachers and students in the learning-teaching process. These web applications, mainly supported by Internet systems and services, are changing the traditional educational process not only in Higher Education (HE) qualifications, but also in open learning for any type of course. Nowadays, there exist different public and commercial Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) aimed at helping teachers to manage courses and contents, as well as to support the students’ learning process. In this sense, VLE are an important factor contributing towards the change from traditional educational methodologies to new paradigms including active teaching. This implies not only a shift in the way of tackling learning and teaching, but also new challenges for software engineers and developers. Virtual Learning Environments have to be built bearing in mind their mandatory use through the Internet, thus requiring important characteristics and capabilities such as security, good latency, several tools for interoperability, storage management, etc.

The ICIW 2010 will have the following tracks:

VEWAeL Virtual Environments and Web Applications for eLearning

VEWAeL: Virtual Environments and Web Applications for eLearning

E-Learning Web Technologies and Tools for Educational Purposes Services for E-Learning Platforms Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) Course Management Systems Web applications for Teaching Social Implications of E-Learning Lifelong E-learning Teaching-Learning Experiences using the Internet for Educational Purposes E-learning in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and other HE contexts Web protocols for VLE Security for VLE QoS for VLE Storage management in VLE "
