WebALT2006: Call for Participation

Andreas Strotmann

This should be of particular interest to those people who do mathematics
distance learning and/or investigate multilingual and multicultural
issues of online math, especially the localization of content markup.

           Web Advanced Learning Technologies 2006
              TU Eindhoven, 5-6 January 2006

           Early registration deadline: 15 Dec.2005

The First WebALT Conference and Exhibition will take place at the
Technical University of Eindhoven on 5-6 January 2006.

This event, sponsored by the Web Advanced Learning Technologies project
(EDC-22253), aims to gather users and practitioners of e-learning
technologies for teaching mathematics to exchange experience with, and
gain insight into, the best available tools for mathematics education.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

     * Software supported testing and assessment in mathematics
     * Repositories of didactical material for online learning of
       mathematics and the sciences
     * Case studies and success stories of e-learning in mathematics
     * E-learning of mathematics in applied sciences
     * Multilingual aspects in e-mathematics
     * Data formats and communication protocols for mathematics
       in e-learning
     * Intellectual property rights of e-learning materials
       in mathematics
     * Policy issues in cross-cultural re-use of e-learning materials
       in mathematics

The Conference program will consist of contributed and invited
presentations with demonstrations of software and posters as part
of the Exhibition. R. Seiler and P. De Bra are the keynote speakers.

Conference Chair: Mika Seppälä, University of Helsinki
Exhibition Chair: Hans Sterk, Technical University of Eindhoven
Program Chair:    Sebastian Xambo, Polytechnical University of Catalonia
Publicity Chair:  Olga Caprotti, University of Helsinki
Local Organizers: Arjeh Cohen and Karin Poels, Technical University of
