CALL FOR PAPER: eLearning Baltics (eLBa) 2012

21.12.2011
The 5th international conference »eLearning Baltics« (eLBa) 2012 will again bring together researchers, practitioners and scientists, people using eLearning products and services as well as people producing them.

eLBa 2012 will cover different aspects of learning and teaching with digital media in various settings such as classroom, university, workplace, home or mobile environments. This includes formal as well as informal methods and technologies in different branches like research, construction, manufacturing and on different levels like the office or shop-floor-level in manufacturing.

The eLearning Baltics (eLBa) 2012 will address diverse topics and perspectives, technologies and theories, implementations and evaluations of eLearning from the fields of computer science, pedagogy, psychology and design. Accordingly, we invite experts from all these fields to contribute to eLBa 2012.

Like the previous eLBa conferences, eLBa 2012 consists of three parts:

• eLBa Science – an international scientific conference,
• eLBa Business – a business congress and user forum,
• eLBa Exhibition – an accompanying exhibition for eLearning products and services.
The eLBa Science – international scientific eLearning conference – is supported by »Gesellschaft für Informatik« (GI), the German network of professionals teaching, researching or working in computer science, and by the German Chapter of ACM.

The three-page extended abstract shall introduce the research question treated in the full paper including applied methods and expected results. All submissions must be rendered anonymous to facilitate blind reviewing. They will be peer-reviewed and selected according to reviewer recommendations.
We expect camera-ready papers of 8 to 10 pages by April 15, 2012. Presentations will have to be held at the conference. Accepted submissions will have to be presented by at least one author at eLBa 2012 in Rostock and will be published in the conference proceedings. Selected papers will be published additionally in the Springer Journal “Transaction on Edutainment”. Accepted submissions require registration and payment until April 15, 2012 in order to be published in the conference proceedings. The respective invoice (189 EUR plus VAT) will be sent along with acceptance notifications.

Please find more information about the submission process along with a paper template at http://www.eLearning-Baltics.eu.

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

Im Focus: Fraunhofer ISE Develops Highly Compact, High Frequency DC/DC Converter for Aviation

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
