Keynote Speakers

  • Prof. Judy Kay, Director of CHAI - Computer Human Adapted Interaction Research Group, University of Sydney, has agreed to present a visionary talk on

    Personalisation, HCI and learning.

    Abstract: This paper explores two classes of emerging technology that offer the promise to provide radically improved ways to learn, throughout our lives. The first is /personalisation/, based on a /long term learner model/ which captures the learner's knowledge, preferences and other attributes. We discuss the roles of an /explicit learner model/ that is a first class software entity, with APIs for programmers and effective user interfaces that can support essential user roles of control over the model and its use. We discuss the considerable potential of such interfaces as a support for reflection, monitoring and planning learning. We also discuss the role of /implicit learner models/ based on the full collections of a learner's lifelong collection of digital artifacts, and links with work on lifelogging. The paper presents a unifying framework that can provide the infrastructure for achieving the potential benefits of personalised learning. We then use the framework to introduce the link to a second class of technology, the fast changing and increasingly ubiquitous mobile devices as well as embedded devices, such as tabletop and shared wall displays. We show how our framework unifies the effective use of these emerging technologies with client-side personalisation and pervasive user models to support learning. We perform a detailed analysis of the important HCI challenges associated with each part of our framework.

    Bio:Judy Kay Judy Kay is Professor of Computer Science at the School of Information Technologies (formerly, Basser Department of Computer Science) at the University of Sydney. She is a principal in the CHAI: Computer Human Adapted Interaction Research Group, leading research in advanced technologies for human computer interaction, supporting personalisation, pervasive and mobile interaction. Her vision is to support a highly personalised way for people to interact with the computers that they carry, those embedded within the environment as well as desktop computers. CHAI researchers are exploring ways to ensure that people can readily make use of these as part of their own personalised augmented memory. We aim to put a personalisation layer over these devices so that each person can make the most effective use of them for key aspects of their lives. Critical to this vision is that the user should always feel a sense of control over the personalisation. She creates new tools for interaction in support of lifelong learning, collaboration and personalised smart services.

    Research trends in accessible elearning: Interoperability of solutions, ubiquity of resources and personalization of services

    Abstract: New technologies can bring significant benefits for older people and persons with disabilities. The e-learning world presents a wide range of information of value to them, offering possibilities for training, acquiring new skills and accessing new job opportunities. Therefore, accessible solutions for e-learning platforms, services and resources offer a wealth of opportunities for research, IT development and launch of new products to the e-learning market. In this context, it is important to point out an innovative concept of accessible solutions combining basic accessibility with technical and semantic interoperability, as well as ubiquity of the resources. Interoperable e-learning platforms are capable of integrating various existing learning systems, which is critical for the future development of e-learning systems, including the learning object interoperability and learning activity interoperability. Ubiquitous e-learning consists of delivering media rich e-learning content through any channel, any time and any place. In this field, the delivery of e-learning resources through cloud computing or other distributed computing systems ensures the efficient access to learning web services that can be combined and integrated on the move. When trying to provide pragmatic guidance a suggested framework for researchers, developers and educators that could be applied at various points in an e-learning development cycle is provided. The methodology includes four different stages for the development of an accessible elearning application [ARUI]: Awareness (understanding of resources under development in relation to accessibility), Research (identification of best practices), Understanding (assessment of applicability for all), and Implementation (identification of alternatives for development, intervention and adjustments). The presentation provides relevant examples for each stage of the development of technology-enhanced learning applications.

    Bio: José Ángel Martínez Usero (ONCE)José Ángel Martínez is a Doctor in Information Science from Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. At present, he is the Scientific Director of the National Consortium (CENIT) for the development of the INREDIS project “Relation interfaces between users with disabilities and different environments”. Period: 2007-2010. Budget: 23.6 million Euro. He is also Director of International Projects and Relations at Technosite-ONCE Foundation and Director of the UOC-Technosite Master on “Accessible Technologies for the access to information society services”. In the last 10 years he has combined teaching with consultancy for ICT companies. He has been a lecturer of Information Science at Universidad Complutense de Madrid and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. In the field of Public Administration he was working in the development of accessible scientific portals as Web manager of CSIC scientific portals. National Research Council. Madrid (2002-2004) and Website Manager of Calderdale Metropolitan Council. UK. (2001-2002). He participates as expert for different European initiatives and standardisation bodies. He is also project coordinator of two European studies on eAccessibility: Monitoring eAccessibility in Europe and Economic assessment for improving e-accessibility services and products .

TEL-GLOBAL: Participate in Technology Enhanced Learning Globally

This year, ICT 2010, Europe's most important forum for ICT research and innovation, will be held in Brussels and is partially overlapping with EC-TEL 2010 event in Barcelona. The Centre for Social Innovation, ZSI, will connect both events using a virtual conference system and invites an interested audience and experts from all over the world to participate remotely.

The exhibition stand at ICT 2010 in Brussels will present a broad range of research and development projects in the field of Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL). A specific focus will be placed on social innovations in TEL including participatory design, inclusive learning society, and responsive open learning environments.

At the same time, many experts are present at EC-TEL 2010, the main European conference in the interdisciplinary field of TEL. All visitors of the ICT 2010 in Brussels, who are interested in latest TEL topics, might participate actively in remote discussions with researchers at the EC-TEL 2010. Additionally, making use of latest video conferencing technologies, connections will be established with TEL experts all over the globe, including Africa, Asia, Australia and Latin America.

The program of (remote-)speakers will be available at:

Organizer: Centre for Social Innovation (ZSI), Vienna; Claudia Magdalena Fabian, Teresa Holocher, Barbara Kieslinger, Sylvana Kroop, Dietmar Lampert, Ilse Marschalek, Elisabeth Unterfrauner, Christian Voigt
