With the rapid development of Internet and other new technologies, eLearning is becoming one of the most wide spread ways of distance teaching. Technologies such as Grid, Web and wireless networks are pushing teaching and learning communities to find new and intelligent ways of using the technology to enhance teaching and learning activities. Indeed, these new technologies can play an important role in increasing the support to teachers and learners, yet it is necessary to use intelligent methods to achieve the desired support and performance in distributed learning environments.

This edited volume will focus on the following topics

        • Intelligent Distributed data repositories for eLearning
        • Semantic and ontology-based approaches for eLearning workspaces, navigation and visualization
        • Intelligent virtual laboratories and eLearning environments based on Grid and Web Technologies
        • Intelligent methods and agent-mediated approaches to support online team coordination in large-scale distributed environments
        • Intelligent methods for service discovery, allocation and deployment for eLearning systems
        • Methodology and practice of semantic Grid and Web for eLearning
        • Intelligent methods for knowledge management in eLearning
        • Computational intelligence for supporting Virtual Organizations
        • Computational intelligence methods for data analysis and mining of eLearning activities
        • Computational Intelligence for using mobile devices in eLearning

Submission Procedure & Guidelines

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before January 31st, 2008, a 2-5 page manuscript proposal (Word or PDF) explaining the mission and concerns of the proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by February 15th, 2009 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter organizational guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by May 15th, 2009. All submitted chapters will be reviewed by at least three independent reviewers.

Inquiries and submissions can be forwarded by e-mail to any of the book editors.
