Call for Papers

The 1st Workshop on LINKed EDucation at the ISWC 2015 will bring together lecturers, researchers, practitioners, and students to discuss the dual relationship between technology-enhanced learning and the Semantic Web. This is a rich field, which covers a wide range of aspects: the use of modern eLearning approaches to train the next generation of Semantic Web scholars and developers; novel skills development frameworks that acknowledge the rise of Semantic-Web-related professions; existing courseware, platforms, and curricula; as well as semantic technologies-enabled eLearning solutions. Moreover, we want to address the question how Semantic Web technologies should be represented within the university curricula of computer science or also of Web and data science. Framed in this broader context the discussion will bring in an interdisciplinary perspective with roots in social sciences, the humanities, business analytics, and numerical methods.

Topics

Education and Professional Training for Semantic Web and Linked Data:

  • curricula, formats, and methodologies
  • computer science vs. social sciences and engineering-related disciplines
  • the traditional class room vs. MOOCs
  • accessibility
  • gender and diversity in education and professional training
  • existing repositories and available courseware
  • case studies documenting the application of specific pedagogical concepts and techniques in the classroom

Semantic Web enabled Technology Enhanced Learning:

  • vocabularies and ontologies for the annotation of learning resources
  • NLP to open up (and semantically annotate) learning resources
  • learning analytics and (semantic) data mining / educational data mining
  • Semantic Web technologies for informal learning and Web-based education
  • Semantic Web technologies for personalisation and context-awareness in eLearning
  • usability and advanced user interfaces in learning environments
  • Schema.org, LRMI and Microdata for annotation of educational Web material
  • exposing learning objects & resources to the Web of Data
  • learning flows and designs with Semantic Web technologies
  • visual analytics of educational data
  • collaborative learning on the Web of Data
  • educational Semantic MashUp applications
  • adaptive and intuitive learning environments
  • Semantic Web technologies support for Crowd Sourcing and/in eLearning

Contributions to the workshop can be made in terms of technical papers and posters/statements of interest addressing different issues of linked education. Technical papers should be not longer than 12 pages using the LNCS Style. Posters/statements of interest should not exceed 2 pages and should be handled according to the guidelines for technical papers.

Two formats are possible for the submission: PDF and HTML.
