Ripples from the technological revolution in wireless communications have extended to all areas of education, as mobile learning has become an increasingly viable and strategic option for students and organisations worldwide. In many cases, mobile devices will come to replace laptop or desktop computers, and allow for greater accessibility.
The Universities and Knowledge Society Journal (RUSC) is now accepting research articles on this topic from all educational sectors and around the world. The specific thematic areas for the January 2014 monographic issue are as follows:
The European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL) is a unique opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to address current challenges and advances in the field.

The call for papers for the 2nd European Conference on "Learning Innovations and Quality" (LINQ 2013) has been released. LINQ 2013's motto is "Innovations and Quality: The Future of Digital Resources". All interested interested researchers are invited to submit their work by the paper submission deadline of February 4th, 2013.
The 2nd European Conference on "Learning Innovations and Quality" (LINQ) has published a call for papers for its upcoming conference in Rome on the 13th and 14th of May 2013. LINQ is the leading annual European Conference on learning innovations and learning quality: organized by the University of Duisburg-Essen, LINQ attracts participants throughout Europe and the successful LINQ 2012 in Brussels was also able to welcome experts from Asia, America and Africa.
This year, LINQ 2013 and its motto “Innovations and Quality: The Future of Digital Resources” addresses and invites experts active in the field of Innovations and Quality in Lifelong Learning (LLL): potential points of access to this field include new learning methods and design, Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL), quality standards and certification, human resources development, competences and skills, digital resources, learning materials, and online collaboration and communities. Through these themes, LINQ 2013 will bring together an international audience of various academic and professional backgrounds, providing the foundation for a rewarding exchange of knowledge and experience. Interested researchers and organizations are thus welcome to submit their best work on the conference topics (in detail below) by the 4th of February 2013 (paper submission deadline).
“The dialogue at LINQ 2012 in Brussels demonstrated several critical points of potential development regarding the relationship between learning quality and innovation,” says Christian M. Stracke, LINQ Conference Chair and international ISO Convener for learning quality from the University of Duisburg-Essen. “This year’s motto emphasizes the importance of digital repositories and their usage in lifelong learning and improving learning innovations and learning quality. We look forward to meeting researchers and practitioners from Europe and all over the world interested in sharing and presenting their inventive approaches!”
The LINQ 2013 call for papers invites all experts and practitioners to contribute to LINQ’s dialogue through the submission of high-quality papers describing fully-developed results, on-going work or innovative concepts related to the following topics:
• Innovations and future trends in Learning, Education and Training (LET)

The European Distance and E-learning Network – EDEN announces its next annual conference to take place on 12-15 June 2013 in Oslo, Norway at the premises of The University of Oslo. The conference is organised in collaboration with NADE – Norwegian Association for Distance and Flexible Education. The EDEN 2013 Conference will discover and present the latest best practice in e-learning, open, distance and flexible learning, share progressive concepts, inventive solutions, and promote joint-thinking and collaboration. The Conference launched its Call for Contributions to academic staff, researchers, professionals and practitioners of the field. This year’s special strand focuses on mapping new technologies in school level education and training. The deadline for paper submissions is 5 February 2013, while registrations open mid-February.
Academics, researchers, practitioners gather every year at the EDEN Annual conferences to discuss the latest developments of e-learning, open and distance education. These have been increasingly important fields of intellectual excitement and innovative development. The challenges posed by the new technologies are permanent, and students constantly keep teachers under pressure to develop. In Europe, despite economic and social pressures, there is a collective drive towards realising the creative potential. Learning is becoming more and more individualized and self-managed. Personalization helps foster engagement and supports awareness and motivation. The 2013 EDEN Annual Conference thus explores themes such as “Engaging and challenging learners” „Enhanced learning experience by participation and collaboration” or „Joy, Fun and ICTs”.
Call for Papers
The Call for Contribution launched recently invites full paper proposals for presentations in parallel sessions, poster submissions for short poster sessions as well as interactive, often with webinar combined workshops and short demonstrations that relate to the conference themes. The Conference Committee double peer reviews submissions and upon acceptance, paper submissions are published in the electronic Conference Proceedings and Book of Abstracts. The Best Research Paper title is awarded after the selection process takes place in collaboration with the Ulrich Bernath Foundation for Research in Open and
Distance Learning, with the support of a distinguished Jury. All full papers accepted for the conference quality automatically for the selection. The Award Ceremony takes place at the Conference Dinner.
The conference will be intensively supported and accompanied by social networking, sharing, online and virtual presence and involvement possibilities.
Norway is a world leading country in openness, digitisation and modernisation of education. The University of Oslo is a top higher education institution in the country and
will ensure a stimulating environment, making the conference experience unique. Oslo has a special combination of city life and easy access to the great outdoors, the Oslo fjord and the forests. You may enjoy the view on the roof of the new Opera House, the new Ski Jump Holmenkollen, the old Vigelandparken Sculpture Park with 212 wonderful sculptures, the world's two best-preserved Viking ships from the 9th century and also the polar ships in Bygdøy. Or you may pay a visit to the Munch Museum and the Nobel Peace Center where all Nobel Peace Prize laureates throughout the years are presented on digital screens. Oslo is sometimes referred to as a most expensive city and this is true in for certain categories of services and goods. The average conference traveller however may be able to find reasonable solutions and there are still ways to enjoy the city without maxing out your credit card.
The partnership of the Norwegian Association for Distance and Flexible Education guarantees the smart involvement of the national distance and e-learning community and effective liaison with the Nordic stakeholders.
Established in 1991 as an international educational association and not-for-profit organisation, EDEN is open to institutions and individuals dealing with e-learning, and – more broadly speaking – open and distance education. It’s aim is to share knowledge and improve understanding amongst professionals in the field and to promote policy and practice across the whole of Europe and beyond. With more than 200 institutional members and over 1200 members in the Network of Academics and Professionals (NAP), EDEN assists a wide range of institutions, networks and individuals to become involved in professional information and networking activities. It does so through the organisation of acknowledged European conferences, its publications and information services, and by taking an active role in a wide range of important EU projects. EDEN has also proved successful with thematic activities such as the Open Classroom Working Group (school level distance education), and by contributing to, and promoting, ‘cutting edge’ research in the field. In addition, EDEN has also provided extensive secretarial support to the European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning (EURODL).
