Workshops are a gathering place for attendees with shared interests to meet in the context of focused and interactive discussions, hands-on activities, or design-oriented activities. Workshops are an opportunity to move a field forward and build community. If you are working in an emerging area in the field, please consider organizing a workshop.

REVIEWING

Full papers and short papers will be subject to a double-blind review process, and authors must ensure that their names and affiliations do not appear in the submitted papers.  Each paper will be reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers.  A jury of peers will examine workshops and panels. The evaluation will focus on originality, quality, and how well it fits the conference theme.  

The accepted full papers can to be submitted to a special section of the Designs for Learning journal with the revisions requested by the reviewers. A second review round will ensure that the revised paper adheres to the standards of the journal.

All submissions are submitted to EasyChair (link coming soon).
