About TALE

TALE is the IEEE Education Society’s flagship Asia-Pacific (IEEE Region 10) conference, catering to researchers and practitioners with an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education – with a particular emphasis on electrical and electronic engineering, telecommunications, computer engineering, computer science and allied disciplines – as well as those interested in the innovative use of digital technologies for learning, teaching and assessment in any discipline. The target audience of the conference is diverse and includes those working in the higher education, vocational education and training (VET), K-12, corporate, government, and healthcare sectors.

 

The TALE series was first established in 2012 to complement the IEEE Education Society's other, very popular Frontiers in Education and EDUCON conferences, which serve North America (IEEE Regions 1-7) and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (IEEE Region 8), respectively. Following highly successful conferences in Hong Kong (2012 and 2017); Bali, Indonesia (2013); Wellington, New Zealand (2014); Zhuhai, China (2015); and Bangkok, Thailand (2016), TALE 2018 will be held in Wollongong on the spectacular South Coast of New South Wales, Australia. It will be hosted by University of Wollongong and Charles Sturt University.

The theme of this year's conference is Engineering Next-Generation Learning.
