o etc .
We invited authors to submit papers related to the topics of this workshop
presenting novel ideas, critiques of existing works, practical studies and
experiments. We especially encourage papers that stimulate discussion and
facilitate exploration for the new directions of AI, Semantic Web, Web 2.0
in the context of CSCL research.
The papers should follow the same format of the conference papers available
. Paper length: 6 to 10 pages.
All papers must be submitted electronically to the e-mail:
