CALL FOR PAPER: eLearning Baltics (eLBa) 2012

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.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Technology Enhanced Learning
• eLearning and Virtual Training: Concepts, Technologies, and Methodologies
• Workplace Learning: Working, Collaborating, and Learning
• Game Based Learning: Teaching, Learning and Gaming
• Virtual and Augmented Reality in Learning and Training

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 ( 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.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
