The 16th International Conference on Computers in Education ICCE 2008

27. 10. 2008

27-31, October, 2008

Taipei, Taiwan

Organized by the Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education
Hosted by the National Science and Technology Program of eLearning, Taiwan

Building & Cross-Fertilizing Theme-Based Research Communities

Digital technology is the biggest thrust to change education in this century. Despite being a slow process, technology will ultimately change every aspect of education. In this rapidly growing and by nature interdisciplinary field, research interests are swiftly diverging.
Innovative pedagogy design, rigorous scientific studies, and care and concern for humanity are all within our research realm.
In response to this emerging diversity, ICCE2008 will be a meta-conference a conference of multiple, collocated theme-based conferences. On one hand, nurturing theme-based research communities will enhance the identity or sense of belonging of individual researchers in these thematic communities and help cultivate prospective Special Interest Groups in the Asia-Pacific region. On the other hand, animated exchanges among these collocated thematic communities will inspire new research and, more importantly, foster research openness broadmindedness and mutual-appreciation for scholarly work in different research foci. Moreover, for cultural and geographical reasons, there is a need to connect Asia-Pacific researchers effectively with the worldwide research communities, which are usually associated with some established international conferences. With these aims, ICCE2008 will include the following collocated theme-based conferences:

C1: ICCE Conference on AIED/ITS & Adaptive Learning

C2: ICCE Conference on CSCL & Learning Sciences

C3: ICCE Conference on CUMTEL & DIGITEL

C4: ICCE Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies, Open Contents, & Standards

C5: ICCE Conference on Emerging Research in Technology Enhanced Learning

(Note: CUMTEL stands for Classroom, Ubiquitous, and Mobile
Technologies Enhanced Learning; DIGITEL for DIgital Game and Intelligent Toy Enhanced Learning.)

Each theme-based conference is an independent event in the sense that it has its program committee and program chairs.

Also, every theme-based conference program committee is responsible for calling for proposals and organizing their theme related workshops and tutorials.


ICCE2008 will be a 5-day program. A possible example of the program will be:

1st & 2nd days:

(a) Main programs of AIED/ITS, CUMTEL/DIGITEL

(b) Workshops, tutorials, and interactive events of CSCL/LS, ALT/Contents/Standards, and Emerging Research
3rd day:

Plenary sessions such as keynotes, panels, and posters

4th & 5th days:

(a) Main programs of CSCL/LS, ALT/Contents/Standards, and Emerging Research

(b) Workshops, tutorials, and interactive events of AIED/ITS, CUMTEL/DIGITEL

(The 3rd day provides opportunities for exchanges among different research communities represented by these theme-based conferences.)
