The 2011 Taiwan e-Learning and Digital Archives Program (TELDAP) International Conference

Уважаемые коллеги!

Приглашаем Вас принять участие в международной научной конференции "Taiwan e-Learning and Digital Archives Program (TELDAP)" (Taipei, Taiwan from Wednesday March 16 to Saturday March 19, 2011).

The 2011 Taiwan e-Learning and Digital Archives Program (TELDAP) International Conference will be held at the Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan from Wednesday March 16 to Saturday March 19, 2011. The conference is hosted by International Collaboration and Promotion Division of Taiwan e-Learning & Digital Archives Program.

Since 2008, TELDAP Annual Conference has been a great success presenting the achievements and advances in the e-learning and digital archives field in Taiwan. Aside from presenting the achievements of the TELDAP, the 2011 Conference will further focus on the Digital Preservation as well as Digital Humanity and e-Science. The conference also serves as an international forum for researchers around the world to exchange their experiences, new ideas, latest research results and suggestions for future development. The shared experiences on developing digitization technology and applications will provide the Digital Archive and e-Learning community with invaluable references for future collaboration.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

1) Content and Innovative Application: This topic covers the diversified digital contents and their sophisticated innovative uses, the further development and linkage of the diversified contents is also covered. New forms of electronic publication and Publication of data from archives, or of research based on this data are also encouraged.

2) Digital Archives Technology Development and Innovations: Tools or environments for working with archival material (i.e. more active interaction than just search/browse), technology for implementing archives and content processing, software systems that are being used to manage contents.

3) Scientific Data & Biodiversity Collections: Scientific and Biodiversity collections have challenges related to scale (petabytes of data), diverse data formats, and integration with workflow systems to support data analysis. The expected use is within data processing pipelines where data is mined from the collections.

4) User Participation: Archives that are driven, supported or enhanced by user communities, for example by contributing content, enhancing metadata, volunteer participation on online contents etc.

5) Spatial Technology ? community deposit of maps and remote sensing images: The maps and remote sensing images is one of the thematic collections in the TELDAP. The geographical coordinate is an effective approach to cross link the digital objects. The session covers the Geospatial System, science and service in order to add ?value for digital objects. Innovative applications such as individuals upload images taken from their telephones that are geo-referenced and annotated are welcome.

6) e-Learning: This session covers Technology Enhanced Science Learning (TESL), Technology Enhanced Language Learning (TELL), Joyful Learning & Society (JL&S), Classroom, Ubiquitous and Mobile Technologies Enhanced Learning (CUMTEL), Innovative Design of Learning Software (IDOLS), Technology Facilitated Testing and Assessment (TFTA), Information Society & Culture (ISC), e-Learning Accessibility (EA), Social media in education, Educational cloud computing & applications, Development and applications of digital content for e-learning, Discipline-based cases for e-learning, Emerging tools and technologies for e-learning, Game-based Learning, Learning and Knowledge Management, Mobile and Ubiquitous Learning, Social computing in e-learning, Affective and Pervasive Computing for Learning, Theoretical foundations for e-learning, Trends in content/courseware development.

7) Digital Preservation: This session covers the technology, system design and related policy for digital preservation. The preservation time for the digital objects will be shortened without proper digital preservation policy. The digital preservation policy could cover authenticity, integrity, chain of custody and trustworthiness.

8) Sustainability: Huge amount of digital objects and resources have been created worldwide in the last decade.? Long-term sustainability to continuously create and maintain those contents is crucial.? This session discusses sustainability model, organization, planning and best practices, etc.

Special Issues of Journals

All papers will be reviewed electronically.? Selected papers presented in the conference will be published after conference as special issues in the Journal of Humanities and Art Computing published by Edinburgh University Press.?
