PLE 2015 – the 6th International Conference on Personal Learning Environments – is going to be held in Galway, Ireland, from July 15th to 17th,  with the support of the National University of Ireland Galway (NUI Galway) and in coordination with the MAET/MSU GREAT15 Conference.

The PLE Conference intends to create an engaging, conversational, and innovative meeting space for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas, experiences, and research around PLE related themes. This edition aims to return to its origins and be a place to develop relevant discussions and conversations around PLEs, combine theory and practice and encourage non-traditional conference sessions, i.e. unkeynotes, hands on sessions, workshops. Therefore, the 6th PLE Conference in 2015 aims at taking the discussion on Personal Learning Environments a step forward, providing a new impulse for PLE research and development.

In this edition we are glad to inform you that we will have two amazing interesting duets of unkeynote speakers!

The conference invites contributions in the format of “extended abstracts” or “alternative session proposals”. However, authors of both types of contributions will be asked to communicate their research and ideas within session formats that look to avoid the traditional 15 min presentation. More information on the Call for Papers in http://pleconf.org/blog/2015/04/01/pleconf15c4p/

All the accepted extended abstracts will be included in The PLE Conference Proceedings with ISSN. In addition, selected extended abstracts will be invited to present a Full Academic Paper that will be proposed for publication in Open Access Academic refereed Journals with which the PLE Conference has established three partnership for 3 special issues that are going to be published in 2016: NAER, Edutec-e and Digital Education Review.
