Seville (Spain), 29 November - 2 December 2006
Abstracts deadline: 25th September / Early Registration: 10th October
On behalf the organisers, you are cordially invited to send abstracts of your best research for presentation at the forthcoming IV International Conference on Multimedia and ICTs in Education (m-ICTE2006), to be held in Seville (Spain) from 29 November to 2 December 2006. All the information regarding this interdisciplinary conference can be found at the conference website: http://www.formatex.org/micte2006/
A wide range of topics will be covered in this conference. Thus, it is expected to improve the knowledge transfer among the implicated subjects, as well as to build a bridge between the two large scientific communities that converge in this general subject, that is, the computing/technical community and the educational community. Besides, there are programmed two workshops with a more practical orientation. They will be given by two international experts in those subjects.

In addition to the "traditional" oral contributions and posters presentations, a Virtual Participation modality has been established for those researchers unable to attend the conference personally. A limited number of works can be presented in this way. Please consult the conference website for details.
As in previous editions (ICTE2002, m-ICTE2003 and m-ICTE2005), papers presented at m-ICTE2006 will be published in a Proceedings Volume edited by the Organizing Committee (Ed.: A. Mιndez-Vilas), and it will be distributed amongst all the attendees at the conference. The book will be entitled "Current Developments in Technology-Assisted Education (2006)" and will be published in a citeable form, with an ISBN code assigned, for it to have a broad international visibility. Besides, as it is usual in this series of conferences, all the papers will be available at the conference website some months after the conference. The printed Volume is intended to be ready for distribution at the beginning of the conference. For this reason, all the potential contributors are strongly encouraged to strictly follow the deadlines.
COLLABORATION PROJECTS: SEARCH FOR PARTNERS
m-ICTE2006 will also serve as a platform for partners search for trans-national collaboration projects, especially for the EU Sixth Framework Program (Networks of Excellence, Integrated Projects and Specific Targeted Research or Innovation Project). If you are interested in taking part, please send us the corresponding form available at the website.
Send details of your group activities (research topics, members, projects, publications...). The booklet with all participating groups will be distributed at the conference and/or posted at the conference website.
For any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org We would also appreciate if could disseminate this Call for Papers through your Department or Institution.
We hope to meet you at this large interdisciplinary international meeting!
