Besides three keynotes and a panel, several tracks of paper sessions are planned. Submissions to the following topics of interest are invited: IL as a learning process, including assessment; Digital learning resources for IL (e.g. MOOCs, Learning-scenarios, OERs); Comparative studies of courses and curricula with an IL lens; Cultural diversity of IL; IL in connection with other literacy concepts". There are 3 options: Long-papers, Short-papers, and Posters. "The Long-paper track provides the opportunity to present state of the art research. The Short-paper and Poster tracks call for original ideas, application areas and schemes. The inclusion of results is encouraged but not required. Submitted abstracts should not exceed 400 (Long-papers) or 200 (Short-papers and posters) words.". The conference proceedings will be published online.
