Note: Top papers accepted by IEEE TALE 2022 will be invited for submission to IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies (IEEE TLT) with extension and enhancement. Please refer to the journal's website for submission guidelines. Here is the new Editor-in-Chief appointment announcement of Dr. Wang, who also serves as the Co-Chair of TALE 2022's Technical Programme Committee.  

TALE is the IEEE Education Society’s premier conference series in the Asia-Pacific region (Region 10). In the last decade, TALE has grown to become one of the major international engineering education conferences. We shall be celebrating TALE’s 10th anniversary in 2022, paving the way for its next decade.

In the last two years, there have been big changes in education. The global educational landscape has been reshaped, a new normal is emerging and innovative learning opportunities have been created. In order to make more learner-centered, active and scalable, cutting-edge educational technologies and educational development practices are required. TALE 2022 aims to provide a forum for scholars and practitioners to share their knowledge and experience in engineering and technology education, as well as in technology-enabled educational innovation across a variety of disciplines.

● Short (4-6 pages) Paper for Oral Presentation

● Work-in-Progress Paper (2-4 pages) for Poster Presentation

Preliminary Paper Registration

If you are interested in submitting a paper to TALE 2022, you are encouraged to fill in the following simple form: https://forms.office.com/r/Rqcx90shUm so that updated information can be sent to you.

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to prepare submissions of two (2) to eight (8) A4 pages (including tables, figures and references) in standard IEEE double-column format, using the following template: [Format template from IEEE]

Use of any other IEEE templates is NOT acceptable as there are subtle differences between those templates and the conference template that will affect the consistency in the appearance of papers published in the proceedings. Importantly:

  • Do not change the paper size (A4) or margins in the template.

  • The headers and footers must remain empty. (They should not contain page numbers or anything else.)

  • Formatting of the paper must be done using the pre-defined MS-Word styles in the template, rather than manually. The paper must use all the predefined font styles, sizes etc. as per the template.

  • Basic examples of citations and references are included in the template, but authors are required to fully adhere to the guidelines and instructions stipulated in the IEEE Reference Guide at http://ieeeauthorcenter.ieee.org/wp-content/uploads/IEEE- Reference-Guide.pdf. (Where are conflicts between the template and the IEEE Reference Guide, the IEEE Reference Guide prevails.)

  • Please ensure that all template text (guidance text for composing and formatting conference papers) is removed from your conference paper prior to submission. 

 

Papers will be accepted only by electronic submission through the conference website, from which guidelines and templates are available. Submissions will NOT be accepted via e-mail.

A double-blind peer-review process will be used to evaluate all submitted papers. Please remove all author-related information in a submitted paper.

 

Publication and Indexing

All accepted and registered full, short and work-in-progress papers that are presented at TALE 2022 as well as all extended abstracts describing the non-traditional sessions presented at the conference will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to the IEEE Xplore® digital library. Content loaded into Xplore is made available by IEEE to its abstracting and indexing partners, including Elsevier (Scopus, Ei Compendex), Clarivate Analytics (CPCI—part of Web of Science) and others, for potential inclusion in their respective databases.
