SW-EL'05: Workshop on Applications of Semantic Web Technologies - Banff, Canada
02. 10. 2005
... for e-Learning in conjunction with K-CAP'05:
Third International Conference on Knowledge Capture
(October 2-5, 2005, Banff, Canada)
Paper submissions: July 22, 2005
This workshop will focus on the application of knowledge capturing and semantic web technologies and standards for the needs of e-learning systems and discuss issues related to their use for content and knowledge components specification, effective courseware construction and modeling the learner.
SWEL'05 is the third in a series (http://www.win.tue.nl/SW-EL/) following the successful SW-EL'04, held in three sessions in conjunction with three different conferences (AH 2004, The Netherland,
ITS 2004, Brazil, and ISWC 2004, Japan) and the Workshop on Concepts and Ontologies in Web-based Educational Systems, held in conjunction with ICCE'2002 in Auckland, New Zealand.
The K-CAP'05 session of the SW-EL'05 workshop will:
- focus on the knowledge acquisition and application of Semantic Web technologies for the needs of educational Web-based systems.
- discuss issues related to the use of knowledge capturing and Semantic Web technologies for content and knowledge components
specification, effective courseware constructing and modelling the learner.
- discuss the current state-of-the-art in using Semantic Web technologies and standards in e-learning applications.
Paper submission: July 22, 2005
Notification: August 19, 2005
Camera ready: September 2, 2005
Workshop day: October 2, 2005
Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
- Knowledge acquisition and management in e-learning environments
- Using ontologies and/or Semantic Web technologies within e-learning applications:
- to achieve interoperability between educational applications;
- to enable sharable knowledge components and user models;
- to support authoring of Web-based Educational Systems;
- to achieve better personalization and adaptation in Web-based Educational Systems;
to support modularised and standardized architectures.
- Knowledge-based annotation of learning objects
- Exploring possible combinations of existing Semantic Web and/or educational standards and mappings between them;
- Methods and tools for annotation and reusability of learning objects;
Role of RDF, OWL or XTM as a basis for educational metadata specification languages.
- Semantic Web-based Educational Systems architectures.
- Real-world systems, case studies and empirical research for Web- based Educational Systems:
- lessons learnt;
- best practices;
case studies for improved learners, instructors and authors experience.
- The topics can be approached from different perspectives:
- theoretical, systems engineering, application, case study and system
- evaluation, etc.
- Workshop Format
- This will be a full-day workshop, including 20 minute position paper presentations and a panel discussion on selected topics from the
- paper presentations.
- The participants can submit position papers up to 10 pages long. The accepted papers will be published online on the workshop website and
- in workshop proceedings.
- Submit your full papers in electronic form in (.doc), (.rtf) or (*.pdf) to the workshop co-chairs at
- Include [email protected]'05 and first author's name in the subject line.
- Name the submission file also with the first author's family name.
- The papers from all the sessions of the SW-EL'05 workshop will be printed in one-volume proceedings. Partial proceedings containing
- only the papers of the K-CAP'05 SW-EL session will be also provided. After the workshop, the proceedings will be made available online.
