6th International Conference in Methodologies and intelligent Systems for Techhnology Enhanced Learning (MIS4TEL'16)

University of Sevilla, Sevilla (Spain) | 1st-3rd June, 2016 | www.mis4tel-conference.net

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. Examples of such solutions are gamified systems, as well as systems based on learning methodologies that stress the role of motivation, such as cognitive apprenticeship.

The 6th edition of this conference expands the topics of the evidence-based TEL workshops series 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. 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 2016 will be held in Sevilla (Spain) on June 1st-3rd, 2016, in parallel with the PAAMS'16 International Conference.

Special Issues

Authors of selected papers from PAAMS 2016 and its Co-located Events (including mis4TEL 2016) will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to a special issue published in Neurocomputing (JCR Impact Factor: 1.634).
