Feb. 24, 2013 - PRLog -- The extended submission period for scientific papers and research project descriptions to be presented at the 2nd European Conference on "Learning Innovations and Quality" (LINQ 2013) will come to an end on March 4th 2013. Accepted individuals and projects are welcome to present their fully-developed results, on-going work, or innovative concepts during the conference on May 16th and 17th 2013. The LINQ 2013 conference will take place at the Global Headquarters of the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome, Italy. Applicants who have not yet sent their work to the conference hosts are encouraged to finalise their entries as soon as possible using either the paper or project template available on the LINQ website  

LINQ 2013 has already attracted submissions from throughout Europe, as well as Asia, America, and Africa. This year thus shows a continuation in the high level of interest which made LINQ 2012 such a successful conference in Brussels last year. “We are honoured to invite the world’s leading researchers on learning innovations and quality to the Global Headquarters of the United Nations’ FAO,” says Christian M. Stracke, LINQ Conference Chair and international ISO Convener for learning quality from the University of Duisburg-Essen. “The high-quality work we have seen in submissions up to this point greatly strengthens our expectations for LINQ 2013 – we thus hope that the last days of the extended submission period will yield applications of a similar calibre.”

This year LINQ 2013 and its motto "Innovations and Quality: The Future of Digital Resources" addresses and invites experts active in the field of Innovations and Quality in Lifelong Learning (LLL). Potential points of access to this field include new learning methods and design, Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL), quality standards and certification, human resources development, competences and skills, digital resources, learning materials, and online collaboration and communities.

The LINQ 2013 call for papers invites all experts and practitioners to contribute to LINQ’s dialogue through the submission of high-quality papers describing fully-developed results, on-going work or innovative concepts related to the following topics:

•      Innovations and future trends in Learning, Education and Training (LET)

•      Quality improvement and learning outcome orientation in LET

•      Harmonization of innovations and quality development in LET

•      Digital resources, online repositories and metadata for online objects

•      Web 2.0, Social Media and Online Communities for LET

•      Open access, open educational resources and user-generated content

•      Technology‐Enhanced Learning for schools, universities and lifelong learning

•      Learning quality in vocational education and training and HR

•      Implementation of learning innovations and quality improvements

•      Knowledge, innovation and ideas management in LET contexts

•      Standardisation of LET design, production and services

•      Quality management, standards, and certification in LET

•      Competence and skills development in lifelong learning

•      Quality and standardization of learning assessment and evaluation

Submissions of papers related to the conference (max eight pages) must be sent by March 4th, 2013, using the official LINQ template. Papers will be selected based on the outcomes of a double-blind peer review by the LINQ Scientific Programme Committee. Submitters will be informed of their acceptance by the 20th of April 2013. All accepted papers can be presented at LINQ, will be published in the official proceedings of the European conference (with ISBN) and distributed to all conference participants as well as throughout Europe.
