Registration for CELDA 2013 (Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age; 22-24 Oct)) and the two co-located events (International Conference on the WWW/Internet and Applied Computing) is now open – see http://www.celda-conf.org/ . The registration fee includes breakfasts, lunches, and the conference banquet – and complimentary access to the co-located event meetings.
 
UNT-College of Information is host and co-organizer of these meetings in October in Fort Worth at the downtown Sheraton. The second call for CELDA is attached. These conferences attract a loyal group of international participants – many from Europe and many with funded projects and ongoing research. The combined group of participants will be around 300 with CELDA typically being the larger of the three meetings. CELDA presenters have excellent opportunities to be published in a special issue of a refereed journal and in an edited volume based on extended versions of selected papers. The conference will be held at the Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel and Spa located in Fort Worth, Texas.
     
The CELDA (Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age) Conference is sponsored by the International Association for the Development of the Internet Society (IADIS).  The CELDA Conference aims to address the main issues concerned with evolving learning processes and supporting pedagogies and applications in the digital age. There have been advances in both cognitive psychology and computing that have affected the educational arena. The convergence of these two disciplines is increasing at a fast pace and affecting academia and professional practice in many ways. Paradigms such as just-in-time learning, constructivism, student-centered learning and collaborative approaches have emerged and are being supported by technological advancements such as simulations, virtual reality and multi-agent systems. These developments have created both opportunities and areas of serious concerns. This conference aims to cover both technological as well as pedagogical issues related to these developments. Main tracks have been identified. However innovative contributions that do not easily fit into these areas will also be considered as long as they are directly related to the overall theme of the conference – cognition and exploratory learning in the digital age. The conference is now in its eighth year - the 2013 conference will be the ninth. Every conference has resulted in a special issue of a major international refereed journal with a half dozen authors of the top-ranked papers invited to contribute an expanded version of their conference paper. In addition, there is now a dedicated Springer book series with additional authors invited to contribute expanded versions as chapters.
