      > IADIS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE MOBILE LEARNING 2006
      > 14­16 July 2006 - Dublin, IRELAND
      > (http://www.iadis.org/ml2006)
      > co-located with IADIS INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE e-SOCIETY 2006
      > (http://www.iadis.org/es2006)
      >
      >* Co-organised by Trinity College, Dublin
      >
      >* Conference Background and Goals
      >Mobile Learning, although in its infancy as a research area, has to date
      >generated much interest and discussion among researchers. In particular,
      >financial, logistical or technical reasons, such as the ever increasing
      >availability of wireless portable devices, have provided a rich
      >environment for the proliferation of ‘mobile learning applications’. While
      > there is an increasing number of mobile applications and devices that
      >offer substantial potential to support and enable learning and teaching
      >processes, the danger of designing, developing and implementing learning
      >application for mobile devices that are not truly anchored in sound
      >principles of learning is something researcher in the area of mobile
      >learning must be mindful of.
      >
      >Research and developments in the field of mobile learning have yielded
      >numerous experiences and tools that could be broadly classified into
      >administrative, referential, interactive, data collection, location aware
      >and collaborative categories. While the initial categories to some extend
      >attempt to replicate or augment applications available on fixed desktop or
      >laptop computers, the later leverage off the unique attributes of wireless
      >mobile devices by creating new learning opportunities which would not be
      >possible without mobile technology.
      >
      >Against this background, the Mobile Learning 2006 International Conference
      >aims to provide a forum for presenting and discussing cutting edge mobile
      >learning research. In particular empirical research informed by theories
      >of learning such as collaborative, contextual, constructivist and
      >constructionist approaches which are well suited for mobile learning
      >experiences and scenarios, is encouraged. Furthermore, given the
      >continuous developments in technology, the conference aims to generate
      >speculative debate in relation to where the field may be going.
      >
      >* Format of the Conference
      >The conference will comprise invited talks and oral presentations. The
      >proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a book. The
      >best paper authors will be invited to publish extended versions of their
      >papers in selected Journals, inlcuding IADIS International Journal on
      >WWW/Internet and International Journal of Knowledge and Learning (IJKL).
      >
      >* Types of Submissions
      >Full and Short Papers, Posters/Demonstrations, Tutorials, Panels and
      >Doctoral Consortium. All submissions are subject to a blind refereeing
      >process.
      >
      >* Topics related to Mobile Learning are of interest. We invite
      >researchers, practitioners, developers and all those working in the mobile
      >learning arena to submit work under the following topics:
      >• Pedagogical approaches and theories for mLearning
      >• Collaborative, cooperative and Contextual mLearning
      >• Creativity and mLearning
      >• Gaming and simulations in mLearning
      >• mLearning in educational institutions: primary, secondary and third
      >level
      >• Informal and Lifelong mLearning
      >• mLearning in developing countries
      >• New tools, technologies and platforms for mLearning
      >• User Studies in mLearning
      >• The social phenomenon of mobile devices and mLearning
      >• Speculative ideas in mLearning: where next?
      >
      >An academic conference is itself an exercise in learning. Accordingly,
      >proposals as to how mobile technology can enhance the conference
      >experience are invited.
      >
