Conference Navigator

12 September 2017

EC-TEL is supported by the Conference Navigator - find the program online, create your own schedule and receive recommendations for interesting talks and people at EC-TEL!

We are pleased to announce that for the 9th year in a row, EC-TEL 2017 is supported by Conference Navigator, a social system for conference attendees that provides personal scheduling, social linking and personalized recommendations of papers.

Conference Navigator needs your input to gather the collective intelligence needed to match all Hypertext community members with sessions and colleagues that best fit their research interests. Please, help the community by  adding at least five conference papers that are of most interest to you to your personal UMAP 2017 schedule (one of them could be yours, of course!). The provided data will be used for recommending similar papers for all attendees as well as for making a more efficient conference program.

Check the proceedings here.

Examine the program here.

Authors are invited to add up to three descriptive tags to their papers, and to add more information to their profiles on the system, to help increase the visibility of their work, and to help the system to make better recommendations.

See the list of authors here.

Edit your profile.

Many authors and most of the attendees already have accounts in the Conference Navigator system. If you forgot your password, you can reset it on the login page.

If you are a new user, please register here and click on a link that the system will send you by e-mail. Once you logged in and edited your profile, check the conference schedule or the list of accepted papers and add your favorite talks to your personal schedule.

Papers should consider data at different scales (individual, group, class, massive) and different dimensions (cognitive, emotional, behavioral) of learner engagement with the technology. We are looking forward to receiving papers that address the conference themes and are informed by theories of pedagogy and evidence of effective practice. Qualitative papers offering robust meta-analyses or having visionary new educational designs are also welcome.
