Subject: CFP: 3rd IEEE Intl Workshop "Technology for Education in Developing
          Countries" (TEDC 2005)

IEEE 3rd International Workshop on
Technology for Education in Developing Countries (TEDC 2005)
July 6, 2005
Kaohsiung, Taiwan

In Conjunction with IEEE Intl Conference on Advanced Learning
Technologies (ICALT 2005)

* Call for Papers

The goal of this third international workshop is to bring together
and educators to discuss various issues involved in developing new techniques
and on novel uses of technology for education in developing countries.

In developing countries, conditions, constraints, and resources differ sharply
with industrialized nations, creating special challenges for the technical and
educational research communities.

We seek high quality submissions of original unpublished research on
all aspects
of technology for education in developing countries. Researchers and educators
with new perspectives on applications of technology in this context
are strongly
encouraged to submit their work. Accepted papers will be published in the
ICALT 2005 conference proceedings.

The main topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

- Applications and systems
   o multimedia applications
   o adaptive learning environments
   o open source tools for teaching and learning
   o databases, data warehousing and data mining for (mass) education
   o portals, web tools
   o asynchronous applications
   o distributed education
- Novel technologies
   o alternative (low-cost, low-energy) technologies
   o wireless and mobile learning platforms
   o information retrieval for slow/unreliable connections
   o hand-on and hands-in technologies
- Learning settings
   o special education
   o non-formal education
   o vocational training and continuous education
   o literacy applications
   o ICT education
   o distance learning
- Impact of technology
   o project deployments
   o cultural issues in educational development
   o minority language requirements
   o cross-language interfaces
   o human-computer interfaces
   o cultural usability
- Resource sharing
   o collaborative learning in local environments
   o human-computer interfaces for resource sharing
   o teaching resource management
   o grid computing infrastructures
- Evaluation and policy issues
   o gender issues
   o universal access
   o technology as a tool for fighting poverty
   o cost-benefit analyses
   o sustainable educational technology
   o license issues of open source courseware

The workshop will include invited papers and a panel. High quality submissions
from developing countries are strongly encouraged.
