International Symposium on Mobile Learning for Visually Impaired People


Call for Papers

The main topic of the International Symposium on Mobile Learning for Visually Impaired People (ISML-VIP 2012) is the use of mobile technologies for learning, with special attention to applications for visually impaired users. For this to happen, the main aim of the ISML-VIP will be to investigate the importance as well as limits of the mobile technologies for learning for visually impaired people. Several studies have evaluated mobile and wireless technologies as being particularly suited to the implementation of learning settings; in addition, the scientific community has highlighted that mobile learning could be a suitable methodology to support specific learning needs and methodologies.

We welcome original papers no longer than 8 pages describing research or innovative practice, and demonstrations. ISML-VIP invites participation and submissions from researchers and practitioners with an interest in techniques, tools, and technology for improving mobile learning accessibility over a wide range of areas, including the following:

  • HCI education
  • Accessibility and Usability of Mobile Learning Solution for Visually Impaired People
  • Mobile Web Accessibility
  • Mobile interaction accessibility
  • Innovative applications and user interfaces, including mobile application, multimedia, and adaptive interfaces
  • Ambient and highly mobile devices (PDAs, wearable computers)
  • User interface architectures, tools, techniques, and technology
  • Accessibility and evaluations
  • Pedagogical approaches, models and theories for Mobile Learning

A panel of experts and the chairs of the conference will review each proposal. The review process will be highly competitive.

Participants will receive a copy of the Proceedings (Booklet).

The registration fee is free of charge.
