The 6th International Conference of the Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN 2020) on June 21 – 25 2020 in San Luis Obispo, California, USA, will be an innovative and interactive gathering for a burgeoning global network of researchers and practitioners collaborating to develop the scientific, technical, and applied potential of immersive learning. It is the premier scholarly event focusing on advances in the use of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and other extended reality (XR) technologies to support learners across the full span of learning—from K-12 through higher education to work-based, informal, and lifelong learning contexts. Scholars and professionals operating in formal education settings as well as those representing diverse industry sectors are invited to participate in the conference, where they will be able to share their research findings, experiences, and insights; network and establish partnerships to envision and shape the future of XR and immersive technologies for learning; and contribute to the emerging scholarly knowledge base on how these technologies can be used to create experiences that educate, engage, and excite learners.
In addition to the main conference track, a small number of Special Tracks will be offered that focus on specific topic areas of interest within the field of XR and immersive learning. Those interested in proposing/chairing their own tracks should see the separate Call for Special Track proposals on the iLRN website. The deadline for Special Track proposals is 2019-10-28.
PAPER/PROPOSAL SUBMISSION AND REVIEW
Papers for the Academic Stream and proposals/extended abstracts for the Nontraditional Session Stream must be prepared in standard IEEE double-column format, and will be accepted only by electronic submission through the conference website, from which guide- lines and templates are available. A blind peer-review process will be used to evaluate all submissions.
PUBLICATION, ABSTRACTING, AND INDEXING
All accepted and registered papers in the Academic Stream that are presented at iLRN 2020 and all extended abstracts describing the nontraditional sessions presented at the confer- ence 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, EiCompendex), Clarivate Analytics (CPCI—part of Web of Science) and others, for potential inclusion in their respective databases. In addition, authors of selected papers may be invited to submit expanded versions of their papers for consideration by a number of Scopus and Web of Science-indexed journals.
