IEEE TALE 2018

Proposal submission form
Deadline: 22 October 2018

Proposals are being solicited for project demos to be presented as part of a VR/AR for Learning Showcase that will take place at IEEE TALE 2018 in Wollongong, Australia, in conjunction with the Special Track on XR and Immersive Learning Environments (http://tale2018.org/xr).

TALE is the IEEE Education Society’s flagship Asia-Pacific conference, catering to researchers and practitioners with an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education as well as those interested in the innovative use of digital technologies for learning, teaching and assessment in any discipline. The target audience of the conference is diverse and includes those working in the higher education, vocational education and training (VET), K-12, corporate, government, and healthcare sectors. 

The XR and Immersive Learning Environments Special Track at TALE 2018 is being organised in cooperation with the Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN at https://immersivelrn.org).

The VR/AR for Learning Showcase will take place on either 5 or 6 December 2018. A station will be allocated to each project for the duration of the Showcase, and conference attendees will be encouraged to visit the stations to view/experience the projects. Showcase presenters must register for and attend the conference, and must be prepared to bring along to the conference venue their own hardware and any other equipment that is required for their demo. They will be responsible for setting up and tearing down their stations, and are expected not only to be present at their stations to run their demos and interact with visitors during the Showcase, but also to participate in other presentations/sessions that are part of the Special Track.

Proposals may be submitted at https://goo.gl/forms/UPoS5DMPlSgTciZU2 any time before 22 October 2018. Notification of acceptance or otherwise will be on or before 29 October 2018.
