Every year several international research projects on technology-based education are developed all over the world. Most of them have very interesting outcomes but these results are often enclosed inside or so near of the working-group that have carried out the project, failing in the spread or dissemination activities and causing researchers reinvent the wheel over and over again.

Through this special session we’d like to promote the innovation in the socio-semantic technologies applied to education area, inviting to the researchers to send papers that sum up the main goals and results of their international projects.

The accepted papers should fulfil some important key characteristics:

  • The main topic is socio-semantic technologies applied to education international research projects.
  • They must include a clear project description, methodology, main outcomes and validation.
  • The project has to have an international context.
  • The project should be funded by a prestigious public or private organization.
  • The authors of the paper must represent three different involved institutions at least.


Paper Submission: April 16 - June 14, 2012
Authors notification: July 11, 2012
Deadline for final paper submission: July 25, 2012
Deadline for registration of authors with accepted papers: September 10, 2012
SIIE Conference: October 29-31, 2012


The contributions must follow the host conference guidelines ( Accepted papers will be published in SIIE 2012 proceedings.
