Bulletin of the Technical Committee on Learning Technology (ISSN: 2306-0212)
The International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies (ICALT, https://tc.computer.org/tclt/icalt-2022/) is an annual conference organized by IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Technical Committee on Learning Technology. It aims to bring together people who are working on the design, development, use and evaluation of technologies that will be the foundation of the next generation of e-learning systems and technology enhanced learning environments. After its kick-off as IWALT in Palmerston North, New Zealand (2000), ICALT has been held in Madison, USA (2001), Kazan, Russia (2002), Athens, Greece (2003), Joensuu, Finland (2004), Kaohsiung, Taiwan (2005), Kerkade, The Netherlands (2006), Niigata, Japan (2007), Santander, Spain (2008), Riga, Latvia (2009), Sousse, Tunisia (2010), Athens, Georgia, USA (2011), Rome, Italy (2012), Beijing, China (2013), Athens, Greece (2014), Hualien, Taiwan (2015), Austin, USA (2016), Timisoara, Romania (2017), Mumbai, India (2018), Maceió, Brazil (2019), and online in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19 pandemic. This year (ICALT 2022) will be organized and conducted as a hybrid event at University Politehnica of Bucharest, Romania.
ICALT conference is ranked as the second (2nd) by saliency in Educational Technology area in Microsoft Academic for the time period of 2000 to 2020, see https://tc.computer.org/tclt/ieee-icalt-conference-ranked-second-2nd-saliency/ for more details.
In addition, we want to emphasize the strong link we have established with another prestigious conference, the 18th International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS2022; https://iis-international.org/its2022-bucharest-romania/) organized in the same venue, with one overlapping day. Both ITS and ICALT participants can attend two keynotes, one from ITS’s last day and one from ICALT’s first day, for free.
Moreover, please consider joining any of the social networking groups (e.g., Discord, LINE, Telegram, see https://tc.computer.org/tclt/social-media/) to ensure that you could always get all updates and information that IEEE Technical Committee on Learning Technology has. On Discord (https://discord.gg/wdhQrMa), TCLT has created three channels to announce various webinars, panels, events, talks, keynotes, podcasts, etc. opportunities for both of students and professionals.
