                             CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
1st Workshop on Social Information Retrieval in Technology-Enhanced  
Learning (SIRTEL'07)
                      September 18 2007, Crete, Greece (whole day)

in conjuction with 2nd European Conference on Technology Enhanced  
Learning (EC-TEL07)

The aim of the SIRTEL'07 Workshop is to bring together researchers
and practitioners working on topics related to the application of
Social information retrieval (SIR) methods, techniques and systems
in Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL).

The workshop will take stock of the current status of research in
this area, serve as a discussion forum and facilitate establishing
liaisons between different groups that are exploring related subjects.
In addition, it wishes to outline the rich potential of modern
SIR methods, techniques and systems in order to build TEL systems
and services.

SIRTEL'07 will include:

* 8 full paper presentations & 1 system demonstration
* Keynote by David Wiley, Director of the Center for Open and
   Sustainable Learning
* Keynote by Francisco J. Martin, Founder and Chief Executive Officer
   of MyStrands

The Second European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning  
provides a
unique forum for all research related to TEL, including its interactions
with knowledge management, business processes and work environments.
This is a competitive and  broad forum for TEL research in Europe
and world-wide through specialised workshops and the main conference.

Workshop participants are expected to enroll to the conference and pay
the additional workshop fee (with the registration process) that
includes coffee breaks during the workshop.
