Program Rationale

The major issues which need to be considered by those intending to submit a paper for the ASCILITE 2002 conference are:

  • The ASCILITE 2002 program committee will call for full papers, concise papers and workshops.
  • Full and concise papers will be fully refereed and will be published in independent volumes of the ASCILITE 2002 conference proceedings.
  • Delegates will be restricted to publishing one full paper and one concise paper as the first author in the conference proceedings. This restriction has been introduced to encourage diversity and variety in the conference programme. There is no restriction on the number of papers delegates can publish as secondary authors.
  • There will be three presentation formats at the conference:
    • Full paper presentations (25 minutes)
    • Concise paper presentations (15 minutes)
    • Poster presentations (1 hour)
  • Full papers can be presented as either traditional paper presentations or as interactive presentations, short papers will follow a traditional presentation format.

Published Papers

Both full and concise papers will be published in the ASCILITE 2002 proceedings and online. Both full and concise papers must address at least one of the conference themes.

Full Papers

The aim of full papers is to provide comprehensive and up-to-date reviews of an aspect of educational technology development and/or implementation. Full papers should clearly articulate the problem, task or area of inquiry. They should be academically rigorous and be appropriately referenced (APA style; 5th Ed.). The aim of the paper should be clear and authors should draw out the major implications or conclusions of their discussion.

Areas that fall within the scope of full papers include:
  • Major theoretical and/or conceptual reviews
  • Major technical reviews and/or systems developments
  • Organisational, management or policy initiatives in the area of educational technology design, development and implementation
  • Empirically based evaluation and research studies including, but not restricted to, theoretically based case studies
  • Large case studies of local experiences where educational technology has been fully implemented for over one year
  • Major educational technology product developments
  • Major pedagogical or curriculum development initiatives

Authors are encouraged to address one of the conference themes and full papers will be considered based on their relevance to these and on their academic merit. Full papers must not exceed more than 10 pages (when using the formatting described below).

Concise Papers

The aim of concise papers is to provide a forum for the discussion of recent innovations in the area of educational technology development and/or implementation and a forum for the discussion of works in progress. As with full papers, concise papers should be academically rigorous and appropriately referenced.

Areas that fall within the scope of concise papers include:

  • Small evaluation studies, including case studies, of local experiences with educational technology
  • Exploratory projects in the area of educational technology development, implementation or evaluation
  • Recent educational technology product developments where the project is considered a work-in-progress

Concise papers are not restricted to the areas outlined above and the program committee will accept additional papers based on their academic merit, innovation and relevance to the conference themes. Concise papers must not exceed 4 pages (when using the formatting described below)

Posters

Work in progress can be submitted for presentation in poster format. Each poster must be supported by a one-page summary, which will appear in the conference proceedings. To be considered, the summary must be submitted by the submission deadline for papers and must be in the standard format, adhering to the author's guidelines.

Presentation Formats

Presenters will be given the opportunity to present in one of three formats at the conference: traditional paper presentations, interactive presentations and poster presentations.

Full Paper

Full paper presentations can be traditional paper presentations or interactive presentations and authors are encouraged to nominate the presentation format that they would prefer.

Traditional Presentations Presenters will be allotted a 30 minute time period in the conference program. This time is divided into 20 minutes speaking time, 5 minutes question time, and 5 minutes changeover time. Presenters can choose to use their question time to complete their presentation but must not encroach on the changeover time as this is needed to allow support staff to complete technical changeovers between presentations and will allow conference delegates to move between sessions.
Interactive Presentations

Presentations will be allotted a 25 minute time period. Presenters will be encouraged to present a brief (5 minute) overview of their paper and then demonstrate material which forms the basis of their paper (e.g. educational technology products, innovations, web pages, courses etc). The format of these presentations is more informal than traditional paper presentations and should encourage rolling discussion between the presenter(s) and delegates. The presentation format will also enable the audience to experience a hands on approach to the topic of the presentation, however, you will need liaise with the conference organisers with regard to the equipment that you need for the session.

Concise Paper

Presenters will be allotted a 20 minute time period in the conference program. This time is divided into 15 minutes speaking 5 minutes changeover time. Presenters must not encroach on the changeover time as this is needed to allow support staff to complete technical changeovers between presentations and will allow conference delegates to move between sessions.

Poster

Poster presentations will be conducted simultaneously over a one-hour period. Presenters will lead informal discussions with delegates at their presentation. Presenters can bring their own laptop computers to supplement their display but computers will not be provided by the conference organisers.

Each poster submission will have one side of a panel. The panel size is 1200mm wide × 2300mm high. The panel orientation is portrait. Your poster display should be fine as long as you arrange your posters to fit in this area.

Please bring your own materials to stick your posters onto your panel.

The poster panels will be ready for you on 7 December 2002. They are located in The Hub in building 180.

The Refereeing Process

Both full and concise papers will be subjected to a double blind peer review. Full and concise papers that are accepted will be published in the ASCILITE 2002 conference proceedings, which will appear in both print and electronic form. This refereeing process will conform to international standards.

Please note that abstracts will not be reviewed as part of the refereeing process. Full and concise papers are due by July 30, 2002 (see critical dates).

Workshops

As usual workshops will be run on the Sunday before the formal opening of ASCILITE 2002. Workshops make an invaluable contribution to the ASCILITE conference program as they provide a forum for detailed discussion and consideration of issues in the area of educational technology. They provide an excellent opportunity for staff development where experts in the field take time to enhance the skills and broaden the perspectives of participants.

Workshop proposals should be no longer than three pages (or 1,500 words). Body text should be Times New Roman, 12 point, singled-spaced and all margins should be set at 3 cm. Proposals should include the following information:

  • Length of workshop (half-day or full-day)
  • Intended audience and degree of expertise required by workshop participants
  • Clear statement of the objectives of the workshop
  • A detailed description of the workshop format including activities workshop participants will be expected to engage in
  • A summary of the workshop presenter's qualifications
