The aim of the summit is to bring together different communities that research into information (which shall be understood just as a generic term for cognition, communication, co-operation; data, knowledge, wisdom; intelligence; and the whole diversity of related terms), develop or implement applications of their findings (be they technological or social) or use those applications. That is, not only representatives of different disciplines meet but also the latter meet with different stakeholders. The summit shall help discuss the betterment of society. Thus it is an endeavour in transdisciplinarity. Anyway, it is a broad platform for exchange.
The purpose of the WIMS series is:
The e-Learning Conference investigates the uses of technologies in learning, including devices with sophisticated computing and networking capacities which are now pervasively part of our everyday lives. The Conference explores the possibilities of new forms of technology-mediated learning devices not only in the classroom, but in a wider range of places and times than was conventionally the case for education. These are the key themes and scope and concerns of the conference and its companion journal.
This international and interdisciplinary conference will again bring together a range of academics and practitioners to discuss new directions of research and discovery in the social sciences. As with IAFOR’s other events, ACTIS2015 will afford the opportunity for renewing old acquaintances, making new contacts, and networking across higher education and beyond.
