Call For Papers
Due to its potential to make learning easier, more convenient, and more effective, education is one of the preeminent areas of applications for multimedia. Video capturing of lectures has become common practice to produce e-learning content. Simulations allow to explore experiments which would be too expensive or too dangerous to be conducted physically by students. Multimedia-powered demonstrations are freed from many physical restrictions such as the availability of an object to study or the timescale of an effect to observe. Teaching enriched by vivid presentations and possibility for interaction for students can also gain from improved learner’s motivation. Concepts may be given perceivable existence in a demonstration and the observability of important details can be augmented. With the present amounts of educational data produced, there is a high demand in techniques and methods capable of handling multimedia contents adequately. Educational content has to be presented, deployed, stored, navigated, searched, retrieved, edited, combined, and reused in a proper way. Furthermore, quality control and learning processes with feedback loops are considered to be important concepts for more effective and sustainable e-learning solutions. Multimedia technologies facilitate the evaluation, improvement, and assurance of quality in loopback controlled e-learning processes.

Most of these topics involve techniques from artificial intelligence, computer vision, multimedia, but also human computer interaction, and psychology. This workshop aims at bringing together researchers who are interested in this intersection area between the technological point of view and the human-centered view. The topics include but are not limited to:

Multimedia in M-Learning and Learning Apps

The workshop will be held in conjunction with ISM 2018 in Taichung, Taiwan on December 10-12, 2018. It solicits regular technical papers of up to 6 pages (IEEE double-column format). Workshop papers will be official publications of IEEE which will be included in IEEEXplore and also be available as printed workshop proceedings. A number of selected papers will be invited for extension and publication in a special issue of ITSE (International Journal of Interactive Technology and Smart Education) published by Emerald.
