The 3rd edition of the Technological Ecosystems for Enhancing Multiculturality (TEEM) conference will be held at Porto, Portugal, from October 7-9, 2015. Jointly organised by the Polytechnic of Porto and the University of Salamanca, this event brings together researchers and postgraduate students interested in combining different aspects of the technology applied to knowledge society development, with a special attention to educational and learning issues regarding, but not limited to, the following broad-scope research areas: Education Assessment and Orientation, Human-Computer Interaction, eLearning, Computers in Education, Communication Media and Education, Medicine and Education, Robotics in Education, Learning Analytics, Engineering Education, and Information Society and Education. TEEM is divided in thematic and highly cohesive tracks.
Each track shares the scientific and formal aspects for paper submissions, peer reviews and publication, but the track chairs will organise the proper dynamics to achieve the most important goal: to create a researching community. Because of this, the conference social events are open to all participants, including those registered as students, for strengthening the intercultural and multicultural skills among them, independently of the tracks in which they have been involved. This promotes a low-cost / high-value conference, which reflects the nature of the city hosting the 3rd TEEM - Porto - elected the Best European Destination 2014.The proposed tracks for this edition are:
- Track 1. New Technologies in Health Education and Research
- Track 2. Educational Innovation
