Calls for Participation
All accepted and registered full, short, and work-in-progress papers that are presented at TALE 2018 in the Academic Stream will be published in the conference proceedings (USB with ISBN) and submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore digital library. All content loaded into Xplore is also made available to IEEE's abstracting and indexing partners, including Elsevier (Scopus, Ei Compendex), Clarivate Analytics (CPCI—part of Web of Science) and others, for potential indexing.
In addition, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit revised and expanded versions of their papers for consideration for special issues of a number of journals to be published in conjunction with TALE 2018. More details of the potential opportunities and partner journals will be made available soon.
All accepted and registered abstracts from the practitioner stream that are presented at the conference will NOT be published in the conference proceedings or submitted to IEEE Xplore. However, abridged versions the of abstracts will be made available to attendees via the conference program.
Presentation with Paper (Academic Stream Only)
These are traditional academic presentations scheduled during the parallel sessions of the conference program, accompanied by either full or short papers that have undergone peer review. Full papers are 6-8 pages in length; short papers are 4-6 pages in length. Each presentation falls under one of several Core or Special Tracks.
Presentation with Abstract (Practitioner Stream Only)
These are traditional, practitioner-focused presentations scheduled during the parallel sessions of the conference program, refereed by means of an abstract only. This format is intended for K-12, VET and L&D, and engineering and technology industry participants who do not wish to author an academic paper for the proceedings. Presenters are allocated a 15-minute presentation time slot, with 5 minutes reserved for audience questions. Each presentation falls under one of several Core or Special Tracks.
Poster with Paper (Academic Stream Only)
A poster is a visual presentation of the presenter's work that will be on display throughout the conference. In addition, presenters are expected to make them available to engage in dialogue with conference delegates about their posters during a designated poster session. Academic participants may submit either a short (4-6 pages) or work-in-progress (2-4 pages) paper for peer review to accompany their poster.
Special sessions are non-traditional, interactive sessions of either 40 or 80 minutes in length.
Poster with Abstract (Practitioner Stream Only)
As with the traditional presentations, K-12, VET and L&D, and engineering and technology industry practitioners wishing to present a poster at the conference without authoring an academic paper for the proceedings may submit an abstract for review.
Panel sessions engage attendees in multiple perspectives on a given issue relevant to the theme and scope of the conference. They are 80 minutes in length.
Pre-conference workshops provide participants with more in-depth opportunities to extend their knowledge and strengthen their skills over a longer time period. They are 3 hours long and are held the day before the commencement of the regular conference program.
Abstracting and Indexing
All accepted and registered full, short, and work-in-progress papers that are presented at TALE 2018 in the Academic Stream will be published in the conference proceedings (USB with ISBN) and submitted to the IEEE Xplore® digital library. Content loaded into Xplore is made available by IEEE to its abstracting and indexing partners, including Elsevier (Scopus, Ei Compendex), Clarivate Analytics (CPCI—part of Web of Science) and others, for potential inclusion in their respective databases.
The proceedings of previous TALE conferences have been indexed in Scopus, Ei Compendex and CPCI. Verification of this can be obtained by consulting the official source lists for Scopus and for Ei Compendex, and for CPCI by performing a search via the Web of Science platform (individual or institutional subscription required
