====================================
* 10 February 2012: Full & short research paper submission deadline
* 05 March 2012: Notification of acceptance
* 05 March 2012: Poster & demo submission deadline
* 20 March 2012: Camera-ready paper
* 17 April 2012: LinkedLearning 2012 workshop day


OVERVIEW
========
Distance education and openly available educational resources on the Web 
are becoming common practices with public higher education institutions 
as well as private training organisations realising the benefits of 
online resources. However, most of the research in E-learning has been 
focusing on creating a variety of metadata formats and environments for 
the exchange of educational resources. This has led to a fragmented 
landscape of Web standards and approaches used in the educational 
domain. Consequently, it is not only the case that interoperability 
between repositories of educational resources remains a challenge, but 
also that educational Web resources remain underexploited, as their 
connection, reuse and repurposing are barely supported by such technologies.

The very nature of the Linked Data approach offers promising solutions
that can address these open challenges in the education arena. In 
addition, the Linked Data movement has produced a vast body of knowledge 
and data which can substantially support and contribute to educational 
services and content. Building on the overwhelming success of Linked 
Learning 2011, the Linked Learning 2012 workshop will provide a forum 
for researchers and practitioners making innovative use of Linked Data 
technologies for educational purposes on the Web to discuss, exchange 
and disseminate their work.


TOPICS OF INTEREST
==================
The workshop aims to become a highly interactive research forum for
exploring the promises of the Web of Linked Data in the broad area of
education by gathering researchers from the areas of the Semantic Web,
Social Web, E-Learning, Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL), Open
Educational Repositories, pedagogy and education. We will welcome
high-quality papers about actual trends in (a) how education takes
advantage of the Web of Data, especially through Linked Data
technologies and (b) how Linked Data principles are being applied in
educational contexts. We will seek application-oriented, as well as more
theoretical papers and position papers in the following, non-exhaustive
list of topics:

* Linked data for informal learning
* Using the Web of Data for personalisation and context-awareness in
E-Learning
* Usability and advanced user interfaces in learning environments and
linked data
* Light-weight educational metadata schemas
* Exposing learning objects to the Web of Data
* Semantic & syntactic mappings between educational metadata schemas
* Controlled vocabularies, ontologies and terminologies for E-Learning
* Personal & mobile learning environments on the Web
* Learning flows and designs with Semantic Web technologies
* Linked data in (visual) learning analytics and educational data mining
* Linked data in organizational learning and learning organizations
* Linked data for harmonizing individual learning goals and
organizational objectives
* Competency management with linked data
* Collaborative learning on the Web of Data
* Linked-data enhanced social learning


SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION
==========================
We welcome the following types of contributions.

   * Short (up to 3 pages) and full (up to 6 pages) research papers

   * Poster abstracts and system demonstrations should not exceed 2 pages.

All submissions must be written in English and must be formatted
according to the ACM format
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). Please
submit your contributions electronically in PDF format at

  * http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lile2012

Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality,
technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the workshop. At
least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the workshop.

The main workshop proceedings will be published as a volume at CEUR
Workshop Proceedings. Furthermore, authors of selected papers will be
invited to submit extended versions to a journal special issue .
