***************************************************************** Workshop on Social Information Retrieval for Technology-Enhanced Learning (SIRTEL'09) in the International Conference on Web-based Learning (ICWL 2009) Aachen, Germany, August 21, 2009 http://celstec.org/sirtel and http://www.hkws.org/events/icwl2009/workshops.html ***************************************************************** IMPORTANT DATES Contribution Submission: June 14, 2009 Results Notification: July 13, 2009 Camera Ready Submission: July 31, 2009 Workshop date: August 21, 2009 RATIONALE Learning and teaching resource are available on the Web - both in terms of digital learning content and people resources (e.g. other learners, experts, tutors). They can be used to facilitate teaching and learning tasks. The remaining challenge is to develop, deploy and evaluate Social information retrieval (SIR) methods, techniques and systems that provide learners and teachers with guidance in potentially overwhelming variety of choices. The aim of the SIRTELí09 workshop is to look onward beyond recent achievements to discuss specific topics, emerging research issues, new trends and endeavors in SIR for TEL. The workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners to present, and more importantly, to discuss the current status of research in SIR and TEL and its implications for science and teaching. TOPICS OF INTEREST (but not limited to): * Recommender systems and collaborative filtering in educational settings * Defining the scope, purpose and objects of social information retrieval in TEL * Novel ways of generating input for recommenders (explicit and implicit methods) * Ranking of search results to support individualised learning needs * Integrating SIR services in existing educational platforms * Folksonomies, tagging and other collaboration-based information retrieval systems * Social navigation processes and metaphors for searching information related to teaching and learning * Social networks and interactions in learning communities to facilitate information sharing and retrieval * Approaches to TEL metadata reflecting social ties and collaborative experiences in the field of education * Pedagogic decisions, recommender systems and how to contextualise recommender system to support learning processes. * Interoperability of SIR systems for TEL * Visualisation techniques in learning and teaching * Semantic annotation and tagging for social information retrieval purposes * Evaluating the performance of SIR systems in educational applications * Measuring the effectiveness of SIR systems in supporting learning and teaching * Evaluation the user satisfaction with SIR systems in supporting learning and teaching WORKSHOP SUBMISSIONS The workshop invites several types of contributions which allow a wide level of participation: * Research papers (up to 8 pages) * System Demos (up to 2 pages) * Hands-On proposals (1-pager) * Abstract for Pecha Kucha (1-pager) Submissions should be sent to: sirtelworkshop_(at)_gmail.com Please use the template of the main conference: http://www.hkws.org/events/icwl2009/submission.html.
