Types of Contributions

  • Full Paper (length of structured abstract: 2 pages; length of complete version: 10-12 pages): Full papers are for mature work, requiring lengthy explanations of the conceptual background, methodology and data and analysis. Full paper submissions should state: (a) the major issue(s) addressed, (b) potential significance of the work, (c) the theoretical and methodological approach(es) pursued, (d) major findings, conclusions, implications, and (e) relevant scholarly references. Moreover, the relevance to the theme of the conference should be made clear. We also encourage papers that address conceptual issues in Mobile Technology and Mobile Learning research, and papers that help to set the programmatic agenda for the future of Mobile Technology and Mobile Learning research.
  • Short Paper (length of structured abstract: 1 page; length of complete version: 8-10 pages): Short papers are for work that makes significant contributions, but of smaller scale, or that can be reported briefly. Otherwise, the same criteria apply as listed for full papers above.
  • Work in Progress (length of structured abstract: 1 page; length of complete version: 6-8 pages): WiP submissions are for reporting on work that is still in the process of study and/or implementation for which results will not be available by the time of draft paper submission; papers submitted in this category must have titles beginning with the phrase, “Work-in-Progress: Title”.
  • Poster (length of structured abstract: 1 page; length of complete version: 6-8 pages): Posters are for work that is in early stages and for novel and promising ideas. The poster should identify the aspect of the work that will likely lead to productive discussions with conference participants in a poster session, including figures exemplifying the visual support to be provided for these discussions in the poster.
  • Special Session: Special sessions, held in parallel with the general conference, are an integral part of the conference. They provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to meet and present their work and offer a forum for interaction among the broader community of technology-enhanced learning, and online engineering world-wide. Special sessions papers are required to meet the same standards as papers in the general conference and are published in the same conference proceedings. For more info please see the Call for Special Session Proposals.
  • Round Table Discussion: It is a session organized as a ‘discussion panel’. The round table organizer first submits a proposal using the provided template . If the proposal is accepted, the coordinator invites at least 5 speakers. During the session the speakers first make short introductions on the discussion topic (for example, 5 or 7 minutes each) and then the discussion goes on with the audience also participating.
  • Workshop: The objective of a Workshop session is to bring together various research and development groups, to serve as a forum for establishing new collaborations, to attract both research results and work in progress, and to define main enablers and future challenges within a specific research domain. The workshop organizer submits a workshop proposal using the provided template .
  • Tutorials: A session of ‘tutorial’ format, with specific learning objectives for the participants (for example, to learn how a software/hardware tool operates). The tutorial organizer submits a proposal using the provided template .
