30 October - 1 November, 2017

In Cooperation with ACM SIGAPP (proceedings in ACM ICPS)

The International Association for Mobile Learning (IAmLearn) ( is the custodian of the mLearn conference series. mLearn is the leading annual international conference for researchers, policy makers, educators, developers and solutions providers in the fields of mobile, ubiquitous and contextual learning, as well as learning with emerging ambient and wearable technologies. mLearn attracts a large number of participants from more than 60 countries representing all continents, and is, therefore, the world's largest international conference on mLearning and emerging ambient technologies.

Conference Themes

The overarching conference theme is 'mLearning and Design for Social Change and Innovation'. Higher education institutions are called upon to provide for the competencies and skills that foster design for social change and innovation. In addition, knowledge and skills alliances are encouraged by funding bodies to cultivate, share and disseminate competencies that foster social entrepreneurship and innovation. However, little is known on how mlearning can facilitate this process, how it can contribute towards social change, innovation and entrepreneurship.

The topics of interest can go beyond the conference theme, and can include any of the following:

· The development, deployment and implementation of mlearning in the
context of social entrepreneurship, innovation and social change
· mLearning as a tool that fosters social change and social entrepreneurship
· Innovations in mlearning theory and pedagogy
· From pilot projects to mainstream implementation: strategies for the
deployment of mLearning
· Mobile technology to support open and distance learning
· Mobile technology for teaching and learning support
· Assessment techniques and practices in mLearning
· Design and development of learning material for mLearning
· Learning objects and metadata for mLearning
· Informal and lifelong learning with the aid of mobile technologies
· Challenges for mLearning in developing countries
· Building and implementing mLearning strategies in educational
institutions, companies and public sector organisations
· mLearning management systems (mLMSs)
· Computer tablets
· Creating interactive and collaborative mLearning environments
· Future trends in mLearning technology, including the impact of emerging
· Emerging hardware and software for mLearning including wearable
· Location-aware technologies
· Contextual and situated learning
· Augmented reality
· Serious gaming and simulations
· Ambient intelligence and ubiquitous learning
