Call for Papers for mLearn 2009, sponsored by the University of Central Florida and the International Association for Mobile Learning (IAmLearn), to be held in Orlando, Florida, USA, October 26-28.
On behalf of the organizing committee we are pleased to announce the
Call for Papers for mLearn 2009, sponsored by the University of Central Florida and the International Association for Mobile Learning (IAmLearn), to be held in Orlando, Florida, USA, October
We are pleased to host the conference for the first time in the USA and feel that the time is right for rapid uptake of mobile learning and significant advances in the state of the art.
As active members of the mobile learning and emerging technology community, you are encouraged to submit theory-informed, evidence-based papers and presentations from research, practitioner,
and adjacent disciplines. Based on the themes and topics for this year, we anticipate a much broader reach in interdisciplinary areas,
cross-cultural examples and exchanges, and assessment of uses across
emerging vertical applications.
As organizers, we know that the quality of our conference will only be as good as the quality of the research and submissions and look forward to having our team of expert reviewers provide feedback that
will advance our understanding and innovation as mobile and contextual learning continue to move forward rapidly.
We ask that you assist us by directing your associates to www.mlearn2009.org for complete details on this conference and online submission of proposals. I have also attached information on the Call for Papers to assist you in forwarding this information directly to colleagues.
Papers are due February 15, 2009, and notification of acceptance will be sent out on May 18 in order to allow everyone time to budget
and plan. We look forward to welcoming you in Florida!
