All Academic Stream submissions will be published and should be submitted as scientific papers. There are two publication formats, depending on the submitted paper type:
1) Academic Stream Submissions: Refereed Scholarly Papers Published in Conference Proceedings indexed in Scopus Database
- Full paper (12 to 15 pages in Springer LNCS format, incl. references) for oral presentation.
- Short paper (8 to 11 pages in Springer LNCS format, incl. references) for oral presentation.
2) Academic Stream Submissions: Refereed Scholarly Papers Published in iLRN Conference Proceedings (not indexed)
- Work-in-progress paper (4 to 7 pages in iLRN Proceedings format, incl. references) for poster presentation. WIP papers describe early-stage research with their theoretical background, methodology, and, if applicable, first data collections.
- Doctoral colloquium paper (4 to 7 pages in iLRN Proceedings format, incl. references) for oral presentation in the doctoral colloquium. Both doctoral level as well as master’s by research students/candidates are eligible to submit to the DC. The DC will be held as a session in addition to the regular paper sessions, with students presenting their research to each other (in English).
