CSCL 2009 Conference in Rhodes, Greece

The CSCL 2009 international conference on the theme “CSCL Practices” will be held in Rhodes, Greece, on June 8-13, 2009. Paper submissions are due November 1 and workshop/tutorial proposals are due December 15. For conference information, see http://ISLS.org/CSCL2009.
The conference focuses on issues related to formal and informal learning through collaboration, promoting productive collaborative interactions with the help of the computer and other communication technologies. The conference theme “CSCL Practices” emphasizes practices relating to technology-based collaborative learning in schools, workplaces, and daily life.

The CSCL community is not only concerned with studying and designing effective tools to support CSCL practices, but also with identifying specific educational and professional practices that are associated with their appropriate usages. In order to study practices in a reflective way, powerful theories and analytical approaches are required. The aim is to understand how learning emerges: on an individual level, on a group-cognition level, and at the community level.

The CSCL conference and the CSCL journal work together to advance the collective understanding of the community of researchers and practitioners. The journal organizes a symposium at each conference and publishes expanded versions of important conference presentations. We look forward to seeing you on the historic island of Rhodes.

The call for proposals isn't showing up yet on the Website, any idea when it might be there? I tried emailing the organizers but emails are being blocked.

Thanks for your comment. You are right. The paper deadline is November 1 and the website needs to be updated to show the details. I have contacted the organizers about this. BTW, anyone with workshop ideas can contact me directly for informal feedback: Gerry@GerryStahl.net

Hi Gerry! I will send you an email for a workshop idea in the next CSCL. I had the idea when you said the CSCL 99 was the best for you as you had a workshop there :-)
Have a lovely summer!!
