IADIS International Conference on
Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA
October 15 - 17, 2010 - Timisoara, Romania

Endorsed by the Japanese Society of Information and Systems in

* Conference background and goals
The IADIS CELDA 2010 conference aims to address the main issues
concerned with evolving learning processes and supporting pedagogies
and applications in the digital age. There have been advances in both
cognitive psychology and computing that have affected the educational
arena. The convergence of these two disciplines is increasing at a
fast pace and affecting academia and professional practice in many
ways. Paradigms such as just-in-time learning, constructivism, student-
centered learning and collaborative approaches have emerged and are
being supported by technological advancements such as simulations,
virtual reality and multi-agents systems. These developments have
created both opportunities and areas of serious concerns. This
conference aims to cover both technological as well as pedagogical
issues related to these developments. Main tracks have been
identified. However innovative contributions that do not easily fit
into these areas will also be considered as long as they are directly
related to the
overall theme of the conference – cognition and exploratory learning
in the digital age.

* Format of the Conference
The conference will comprise of invited talks and oral presentations
for discussion-oriented papers. The proceedings of the conference will

special issue of an international journal.
