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.

SUBMISSIONS
We invite submissions presenting original academic or indu¬strial research. Please submit an extended abstract of at least 3 pages (shorter abstracts will be rejected) in English language via EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=elba2012) until January 31, 2012. 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: A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.

To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
