ICLS 2012 Announcement: Submission Extension to 8 November 2011


10th International Conference of the Learning Sciences - "The Future of Learning" 2 - 6 July, 2012 in the University of Sydney, Australia Brought to you by ISLS, hosted by the CoCo Research Centre at the University of Sydney

About the conference

The International Conference of the Learning Sciences is a bi-annual conference sponsored by the International Society of the Learning Sciences (ISLS). The conference brings together researchers in the sciences of learning, instruction, and design in order to address questions of how we can better understand and improve learning. Our theme for 2012 is the Future of Learning, and the conference will hosts workshops, panels, symposia, paper and poster sessions, and keynotes by leaders in the field, reflecting on what we have learned so far and considering directions for the future;. It's an opportunity to share and gain insight into critical debate and new research findings across the various disciplines of the learning sciences.

Where and when

The conference will be held from 2 - 6 July, 2012 and on its first trip to the Southern Hemisphere, ICLS 2012 will take you to the vibrant and cosmopolitan city of Sydney, Australia. The University of Sydney is Australia’s first university, founded in 1850, located just two miles from Sydney city centre. Sydney is a vibrant international city renowned for world-class arts and entertainment, stunning beaches, and gourmet dining, and also the ideal base to explore Australia.


We will be receiving submissions for:

  • Full Papers
  • Short Papers
  • Posters
  • Symposia
  • Pre-Conference Workshops
  • Doctoral Consortium
  • Early Career Workshops

We encourage submissions that explore a range of research topics related to learning and education, including but not limited to prototypic research questions such as:

  • How can collaborative learning be effectively mediated by technology?
  • How can inquiry-oriented learning in disciplines such as mathematics and the sciences be guided with technology-enhanced learning environments?
  • How do students collaboratively construct knowledge and understanding?
  • How can intelligent tutors that help people learn complex subjects such as mathematics and foreign languages be designed and evaluated?
  • How can we foster mindful learning and metacognition so that learners are more strategic and effective when they seek to learn something new?
  • How to provide the right levels of assistive guidance in collaborative and online learning to foster self-regulation in learning?
  • How to teach not only for factual memory and procedural skills but for adaptive and flexible understanding that can be used beyond formal schooling and throughout life?
  • How does learning vary when its participants are in the same or different times (synchronous/asynchronous) or spaces (distributed/local)?
  • How can teachers productively create teaching and learning environments that support the needs of learners of diverse linguistic, cultural and economic backgrounds?
  • How can the capabilities of interactively visualizing data be incorporated in learning environments so as to make difficult subjects in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, the social sciences, and the humanities more accessible and learning more coherent?
  • How can the creation and use of computational models of the physical and social worlds by learners become an integral part of educational practices?
  • How can the energies and motivations that accompany a learner’s interests be matched with learning resources to enable productive learning pathways?
  • What forms of CSCL organization and interaction make for productive online learning communities?
  • How can productive co-design partnerships between educational practitioners and researchers be fostered for scaling and sustaining innovative learning environments?
  • How does the physical embodiment of learning (e.g., gesture, gaze, pointing) contribute to learning processes and strategies?

About ISLS

ISLS is a professional society dedicated to the interdisciplinary empirical investigation of learning as it exists in real-world settings and how learning may be facilitated both with and without technology. ISLS sponsors two professional conferences, held in alternate years. The International Conference of the Learning Sciences (ICLS), first held in 1992 and held bi-annually since 1996, covers the entire field of the learning sciences. Visit the ISLS site at
