Dear Colleague,

Following the successful workshops at ICALT 2007 in Japan and ICALT 2008 in Spain, we would are proposing to organise a further workshop on Advanced Learning Technologies For Disabled and Non-Disabled People to take place at 10th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies. ICALT 2010 will take place on 5-7 July 1010 in Sousse Tunisia.  For more information on ICALT 2010, see 


This workshop will focus on frameworks and systems for designing learning technologies that can be personalized and adapted for different learning contexts.  We would like to invite you to submit a paper dealing with issues related to one or more of the workshop questions (see below).  In addition to the conference proceedings, for which 2-page papers (10 pt TNR, 2 columns, no line spacing between indented paragraphs) are required, we will also be producing workshop proceedings, to which a longer version of the paper (up to 10 pages 11pt arial, single column) can be submitted.


The key deadlines are:

February 22, 2010 – Submission of 2 page paper

March 8, 2010 - Notification of acceptance

March 25, 2010 – Submission of final version of paper

April 6, 2010 - Deadline for registration for workshop authors.

April 30, 2010 – Submission of longer version of paper for workshop proceedings


Papers should be submitted as WORD or OpenOffice documents and include alternative text descriptions of any graphics.  All papers will be peer reviewed.  Papers should be submitted to either



The workshop questions are as follows:

·                What is the current state of the art regarding the development of Advanced Learning Technologies for Disabled and Non-Disabled People?

·                How are specific challenges related to accessibility and usability of content and presentation in advanced learning technologies currently being addressed and should a design for all approach or design for specific groups of learners approach be taken in the future?

·                What are the key pedagogical and cultural issues in relation to designing and implementing learning technologies for disabled and non-disabled students?


Best wishes,

Marion Hersh and James Ohene-Djan
