Learning Technology newsletter invites articles, announcements, call for papers, project reports, case studies and other items which may be of interest to academics, researchers and professionals involved in the field of existing and emerging learning technologies.
BBEurope is a yearly conference, dedicated to BB with presentations of latest results, evolutions and technologies in the field. BroadBand covers however many different disciplines and beside technological results, also socio-economic, techno-economic and regulatory aspects will find a forum here. Presentations from ongoing trials and regional projects give an extra flavour to the conference.
The submission deadline is approaching: September 1st
BBEurope 2007 is organized by the IBBT, hosted by Alcatel-Lucent and endorsed by IET and DSL Forum.
Co-located with BBEurope there will be at least 3 extra workshops:
- "From Access To Metro - A seamless transition" (IET-Workshop)
- "The MUSE Winter-school"
- "QoS Tutorial", prepared by EuQoS project addressing different known technologies and open problems with Internet QoS
BBEurope, together with all of these workshops are unique opportunities for the shaping Broadband for All area in future, including vision, strategies and roadmaps.

Call for Contributions
The organizers of 5th European Forum 2007 have the pleasure in inviting all actors involved in Engineering Education to submit their contributions to the Forum. The participants are invited to submit the Proposal (abstract/ outline) electronically by 4th of September 2007.
The three Forum days comprise of four plenary sessions, three parallel sessions and three interactive working group sessions, which are divided into three tracks:
Theme A. New Roles and Responsibilities of Universities; pedagogy, processes and infrastructure
Theme B. Lifelong Competence Development; foresight, creativity and innovation
Theme C. Continuing Engineering Education; productivity, collaboration and networking
The plenary sessions include key-note speeches, expert panels and reporting from the working group sessions. Parallel sessions are highly interactive. The Forum is the fifth in a series of European Forums covering themes related to Continuing Engineering Education (CEE) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Previous European CEE Forums were held in Stuttgart, Lisbon, Vienna and in Trondheim
The outcome of the Forum will be a European State-of-the-Art report with the desirable future policy guidelines and proposals. The Forum will examine questions such as how the continuing engineering education can effectively response to the challenges of knowledge economy and to the changes in working life to support lifespan professional development.
The Forum is jointly organized by: European Society of Engineering Education (SEFI), Helsinki University of Technology Lifelong Learning Institute Dipoli (TKK Dipoli) and Rovaniemi University of Applied Science (Ramk), European Federation of national Engineering Associations (FEANI) and International Society for Engineering Education (IGIP).

In engineering education, there have been notable front runners that have paved the way for others on the issue of Sustainable Development, and two decades after Brundtland, various engineering schools have accepted the challenge of teaching it to future engineers. Reflecting this increase in interest, The European Journal of Engineering Education has published already several articles analyzing and reflecting on SD teaching practices.
In this special issue, we want to go beyond factual reports on technical subjects, curriculum change and institutional embedding. Although we might learn from reports on each other’s successful course or subject, we are really looking for comparative studies focusing on best practices at each level of SD integration.
Those that are interested in submitting a paper are invited to submit by mail a one page abstract, before September 10, 2007, to the special issue editors.
For further information or to receive some feedback on your ideas, you can contact the editors of this special issue.
The conference aims to promote the development of Mobile Learning in the Middle East, provide a forum for education and knowledge transfer, expose students to latest ICT technologies and encourage the study and implementation of mobile applications in teaching and learning.

From 27 September 2007 till 29 September 2007 Location: Sofia, Bulgaria
The workshop aims to create a collaborative working
space for young researchers and PhD students from the region of the Balkans,
the new member states and the associated to the EU countries. Thus the workshop
would contribute to the sharing of ideas and expertise and to the development
of Technology-enhanced learning in the region. It is part of the Balkan
Conference in Informatics – BCI2007. The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited, to topics related to the specific regional and educational issues of TEL and the
technologies supporting TEL.
