Propose a chapter for this book

The Advances in Educational Marketing, Administration, & Leadership (AEMAL) Book Series strives to provide publications that address all these areas and present trending, current research to assist professionals, administrators, and others involved in the education sector in making their decisions.

In its Commission Work Programme 2013, the European Commission (2012) states that:

“Education and training systems are not keeping up with changing labour market needs – resulting in shortages in key areas like science, mathematics and e-skills. Higher education is not sufficiently connected to research and innovation activities and is slow to build capacity in areas like ICT – which both reflects and contributes to a lack of internationalization. Life-long learning is still developing, and public policy and business practices do not reflect the need for older workers to extend their working careers” (p.7).

The evolution of information technologies, mobile devices and social media as well as the needs of students, workers and academics has experienced rapid changes in the last years. This complex and dynamic reality requires new forms of delivery of learning contents to students, the building of special learning environments and new teaching methodologies for academics. Old teaching practices (from the building of teaching material to the evaluation processes and tutorial services) need to be adapted to provide customized and context adapted learning opportunities. There are drivers, barriers and success factors of distance and mobile learning that need to be explored, such as widespread availability or the lack of policy support.

European Commission has funded a number of successful R&D projects focused on mobile learning and several EU countries (such as Denmark, The Netherlands and UK) have supported the used of mobile learning in schools and universities.

The purpose of this book is to analyze the challenges of the new labour market, policies for the new educational challenges, future roles of academic staff, and challenges of distance and mobile learning in higher education today. The book will reveal real experiences of higher education institutions and academics implementing distance and mobile education courses.

Objective of the Book
The primary goal of the book is to provide comprehensive coverage and understanding of the learning processes, its complexities and challenges in the context of higher education and the role of information technologies for mobile and distance learning.

The book will offer a collection of chapters that bring together researchers in the field of technology and pedagogy, both theoretical and practical contributions, to help readers in the development and dissemination of new approaches to both mobile and distance learning.

Target Audience
Professors in academia, deans, heads of departments, director of masters, students (undergraduate and postgraduate level) , politicians, policy makers, corporate heads of firms, senior general managers, managing directors, information technology directors and managers, libraries, etc.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
•	Challenges for education in the new labour market
•	Higher education and reforms
•	IT and education
•	Long life learning
•	Mobile and distance learning in higher education
•	New labour market
•	Problems of the current labour market

Mini-track: Information Technology for Development

While current research suggests that the digital divides are decreasing, initiatives in this area remain a challenge. International agencies work with governments to implement policies and conduct studies on the nature of the gap between regions that are connected to and use IT extensively and those that do not.  At the same time, many national and institutional-scale ITD initiatives target the small group of developing economies and fail to consider the developing regions in lesser developed economies. Commercial interests in developed countries have only recently begun to view the vast under-privileged majority of inhabitants of lesser developed countries or these developing regions as constituting a viable market. It is these populations that are using technology in innovative ways to achieve growth and greater success in their businesses, governments, and economies. This has opened up new areas and questions requiring research into what are the ways in which technology can be adopted to bring about growth?  Why is it that some organizations and countries respond positively to technology implementations while others are not as successful?

This mini-track opens up this discussion to a broader community of scholars that are involved in investigating these questions.  The rapid growth of the Internet has opened up new opportunities for organizations in the developed world to work with developing countries and developing regions in their own economies. Such areas include: 1) sourcing strategies enabling access to skill and expertise, 2) provision of critical services such as Healthcare and 3) better management of natural resources such as land. These topics are addressed using the ITD knowledge within countries and regions that stand to benefit from IT driven economic development. The challenge facing researchers, practitioners and policy makers is how to achieve measurable improvements in people's lives through deployment of IT and measure this impact. This mini-track seeks to address these issues and make a contribution to how IT can be used to bring about economic, social and human development. In addition, it  will provide a forum for discussion of practical experience and research related to the

diffusion and use of information and communication technologies (ICT) in developing regions of the world.

Submissions are invited that are theoretically and empirically sound. Topics include but are not limited to:

1.      Social, political and legal frameworks for fostering ICT diffusion in developing regions
2.      Networks and computer applications for eGovernment and eBusiness
3.      Community Health Informatics, infrastructures and applications for healthcare in underserved communities.
4.      Using ICT to develop capabilities for increasing opportunities for individuals and communities.
5.      Innovative applications and uses of ICTs to support underserved communities in all parts of the world.
6.      Methods for measuring the benefits and costs of projects involving the adoption of
7.      The role of human and social capital in effective access and use of ICTs
8.      Critical and theoretical perspectives on the digital divide and social inclusion
9.      Scalable and economic ICT infrastructures
10.     Educational systems; content provision and delivery; developing ICT skills
11.     Policies related to intellectual capital; open access and the intellectual commons
12.     ICT to support Small and Medium Enterprise (SME)
13.     Technological entrepreneurship as a path to prosperity
14.     Economic impact of ICT initiatives in developing, emerging and transition economies
15.     Differences in ICT adoption, success, and impacts among the cities, states, or provinces of developing economies.
16.     ICT  initiatives and  global competiveness of  firms  in  developing, emerging and transition economies
17.     Technology  and  knowledge  transfer  in  developing,  emerging  and  transition economies

Both conceptual and empirical papers are welcome. Conceptual papers include theory development, frameworks and models for studying and applying IT.  For empirical papers, field studies, case studies, action research, innovative online data collection methods, and appropriate quantitative techniques are strongly recommended. Papers submitted should explicitly state their research methods.

Outstanding papers accepted in the mini-track can be fast-tracked for review consideration by and possible publication in the Information Technology for Development Journal (ITD)

Information Systems Foundations:

The Value of Information Systems

2-3 October, 2014

National Centre for Information Systems Research (NCISR)

Research School of Accounting and Business Information Systems

The Australian National University


The aim of the Information Systems Foundations workshops is to provide an opportunity for those with an interest in the foundations of their discipline to discuss, debate and hopefully contribute to improving those foundations.

The 2014 Workshop

High quality papers that have not been previously published and are not under consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere are solicited for presentation at the 2014 Workshop. Submitted papers will undergo a double-blind review process, with at least two independent reviewers per paper. Accepted papers will be published in the Workshop Proceedings on the NCISR web site.

Selected papers will be considered for a themed issue of the Australasian Journal of Information Systems by arrangement with the Editor-in-Chief, Dr John Lamp: http://dl.acs.org.au/index.php/ajis

Workshop Theme

As with the previous Workshops, the focus of this Workshop is on the theoretical foundations of information systems. In particular, for this 2014 Information Systems Foundations Workshop we are looking for papers that focus on the value and evaluation of information and related theories and theorising in the discipline.

Suggested Topics

Suggested topics for the Workshop are (but are not intended to be limited to):

  *   Dimensions of the value of information technology (e.g., economic, policy, social, aesthetic, and ethical) and indicators and means of assessing value
  *   Business value of information systems
  *   The value of information systems for national development
  *   Value of the information systems discipline
  *   Value of information systems theories
  *   Evaluating tangible and intangible outcomes of information system use
  *   The value of information systems as innovations
  *   Design theory research relating to information systems evaluation
  *   Specific theories in information systems relating to information systems value and evaluation
  *   Comparative studies of value and evaluation issues in information systems compared with other similar or related disciplines.

The main requirement for a paper to be acceptable for the Workshop is that it addresses clearly some theoretical body or bodies of knowledge in the information systems or a related domain. In addition, papers should indicate, where appropriate, the implications for practice of the theory or theories under consideration.

Papers that are carefully argued, stimulating and (especially) speculative and controversial, and that are likely to encourage lively discussion and debate are especially encouraged.

Important Dates

Paper submission date (full paper):                                30 June, 2014 (extension to 4 July, 2014)

Notification of acceptance/rejection:                              7 August, 2014

Final papers due:                                                           8 September, 2014

Submission Requirements

Papers are to be submitted electronically to: infsys-foundations at anu.edu.au<http://infs.fec.anu.edu.au/workshop/cfp/infsys-foundations@anu.edu.au>

Style requirements are specified on the workshop web site. Submitted papers must use and adhere to the paper template provided on the website.

productivity and produce joint products that would have been impossible to
develop without the
contributions of multiple collaborators. Technology has evolved from
standalone tools, to open systems
supporting collaboration in multi-organizational settings, and from general
purpose tools to specialized
collaboration grids. Future collaboration solutions that fully realize the
promises of electronic
collaboration require advancements in networking, technology and systems,
user interfaces and interaction
paradigms, and interoperation with application-specific components and

[Industry Track Papers]

The Industry/Government Track solicits papers describing implementations of
Collaborative Computing solutions
relevant to industrial or government settings. The primary emphasis is on
papers that advance the understanding of
practical, applied, or pragmatic issues related to the use of Collaborative
Computing technologies in industry and
government and highlight new research challenges arising from attempts to
create such real applications.
Applications can be in any field including, but not limited to: e-commerce,
medical and pharmaceutical, defense,
public policy, finance, engineering, environment, manufacturing,
telecommunications, and government.

The Industry/Government Track will consist of competitively-selected
contributed papers. Submitters must clearly
identify in which of the following sub-areas their paper should be
evaluated as distinct review criteria will be
used to evaluate each category of submission.
- Deployed: Deployed systems that are providing real value to industry,
Government, or other organizations or
professions. These deployed systems should point out how they explicitly
leverage Collaborative Computing
technologies or describe either qualitatively (lessons learned, deployment
experiences, etc.) or quantitatively
the impact of using Collaborative Computing technologies for enhancing
operational systems.
- Emerging: Emerging applications and technology must have clear user
interest and demonstrable value to Industry,
Government, or other users (e.g., scientific or medical professions) to
distinguish them from research track papers,
or they must provide insight into issues and factors that affect the
successful use of Collaborative Computing
technology and methods. Papers that describe infrastructure that enables
the large-scale deployment of Collaborative
Computing techniques or external validation of Collaborative Computing
technologies are in this area.


As in previous years, CollaborateCom 2014 will feature a best paper award
and a best student paper award (to be
selected by the program committee). A paper is eligible for the best
student paper award if the first author is a
full-time student at the time of submission. A partial travel grant will be
offered to the winner student.

[Paper Submission]

We invite original research papers that have not been previously published
and are not currently
under review for publication elsewhere. Contributions addressing all areas
related to collaborative networking,
technology and systems, and applications are solicited. The submitted
manuscript should closely reflect the
final paper as it will appear in the Proceedings. Submitted papers should
be 10 pages in two-column IEEE
proceeding format. The papers can be submitted in regular track or
Industry/Application track.
Please visit the conference website www.collaboratecom.org for detailed
submission requirements and procedures.

[Workshops Proposals]

*Call for Papers: WICSOC 2014 - Social Media, Crowdsourcing, and Public


? Submission: June 15, 2014 ? Acceptance: July 15, 2014

? Camera Ready: TBA

? Workshop Date: August 13, 2014

Program co-Chairs: Mohd Anwar, North Carolina A&T State University and
Bernard Fuemmeler, Duke University Medical Center

The 3rd International Workshop on Issues and Challenges in Social
Computing (WICSOC
2014) will take place in conjunction with IEEE IRI 2014, August 13th -15th.
The aim of this workshop is to discuss and exchange ideas on the
opportunities and challenges in social computing systems as they relate to
healthcare and public health. We invite papers from researchers and
practitioners working in any aspect of social computing with research focus
on health, healthcare, or public health.

Social Computing Technologies (SCT) offers users opportunities for
connectedness, participation, engagement, collaboration, and opportunities
for offering/receiving social support. These applications/systems gather
abundance of information that when mined and analyzed will further enrich
their services or help researchers understand many different things
including social dynamics of people, wisdom of crowd, social construction
and sharing of knowledge, etc. As a result, SCT can be leveraged to empower
both health professional and citizens. Online Social media such as
Facebook, Twitter, QuitNet are increasingly being used for health-related
purposes. A 2013 online survey suggests that 59.9% patients used Twitter
for increasing knowledge and exchanging advice and 52.3% used Facebook for
social support and exchanging advice. Novel techniques for information
analysis, reuse, and integration are critical to make sense of health-
related information. Systematic approaches, design principles, and
evaluation strategies need to be researched for developing effective
health-related social computing applications. Other challenges in social
computing include accommodating privacy, security, and trust expectations
of users or separating good information from noise.

We invite research or position papers from researchers and practitioners
working in any aspect of social computing with research focus on health,
healthcare, or public health.

*Example topics*, but not limited to, include:

? Design, modeling, and simulation of socially aware health technology

? Demonstration cases of using existing social media platforms (e.g.,
twitter, facebook) for health research

? Social network analysis for the purpose of understanding or intervening
upon health related outcomes

? Behavioral intervention implemented through social media platforms

? Disease & health management using social media applications

? Crowdsourcing health or biomedical research

? Public health resource sensing or crowdsourcing of public health resources

? In-time, in-place healthcare information through social media

? Design and evaluation of online patient communities with social network

? Healthcare/mHealth Social Networks

? Data protection (Privacy, Security, Trust) in healthcare social networks

? Empowerment of patients and healthcare professionals

? Design and evaluation of social game for health education & awareness

? Classification and categorization of health information in social media

? Mining of big Data for population health monitoring or intervention

? Social computing application for health & wellness management

All contributions will be peer-reviewed by at least three experts. *Papers
should be 4-6 pages (English) in IEEE format*, including bibliography and
well-marked appendices. Accepted papers will be published as workshop
papers in the IEEE IRI conference proceedings. Manuscript template and
formatting resources are available in:

The extended versions of the best papers from the workshop will be
considered for journal publication.

The amount of structured and unstructured data has been exploding in recent
years leading to the concept of Big Data.  Analytics based on Big Data has
the potential for organizations to gain and sustain competitive advantage.
 Companies are looking for ways to outrun their competitors through
innovation in analytics which lead to deeper understanding of customer
needs.  However, while there has been significant interest in looking for
ways to enhance competitiveness, there is new interest in examining how big
data can help companies collaborate both internally and externally.  For
example, in marketing, companies are not just looking at how big data
analytics can help acquire, grow and retain customers but also at how it
can enhance collaboration with customers and partners.  Another emerging
area is collaborative generation and use of big-data through crowdsourcing
and open source data sets.  Managing, processing and use of these data sets
pose new challenges which make it a fertile area for research.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

?         Challenges for collaboration in Big Data

?         Benefits of Collaboration and Big Data

?         Storage and management of Collaborative Big Data

?         Crowdsourcing of the Big Data tasks

?         Security and privacy in Collaborative Big Data

?         Applications of Collaborative Big Data

?         Use of Big data for internal collaboration

?         External Collaboration through use of Big Data

?         Case studies on Big Data and Collaboration

?         Adaptive collaboration systems that feature modeling,
collaboration, and advanced analytics to detect patterns, make sense,
simulate, predict, learn, take action, and improve performance with use and

?         Application of control-theoretic models to interactions among
social entities

?         Application of survival models to predict hazard rate of computer
supported social processes

?         Application of N-person game theory in problems arising from
unregulated use of collaboration systems

?         Application of social network analysis (SNA) on big data in
collaboration systems

*Submission Process*:

Full paper submissions must be made electronically through the HICSS
on-line submission system.  Papers should not exceed ten pages and the
initial submission will not have author names. Please check the web site (
http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu/hicss_48/apahome48.htm) or contact the
mini-track co-chairs for more information.
