**WORKSHOPS AND PANELS/SYMPOSIUM**
A main objective of the workshops and panels/symposiums is to foster discussions and exchanges between different stakeholder groups and to encourage collaboration between the different research and practice fields related to design, learning, and innovation contributing to the creation, shaping, and incubation of playful learning designs, tools, technologies, experiences, processes and outcomes. Therefore, DLI 2016 offers workshops and panels/symposiums as a part of the conference activities, focusing on specific topics.
Proposals will be evaluated regarding relevance and anticipated interest, and should include Workshop title, presenter information, abstract, and intended audience. A workshop proposal should contain:
- Title of the workshop
- A brief description of the specific technical issues that the workshop will address
- The reasons why the workshop is interesting and timely
- A draft call for papers, including the workshop submission deadlines
- Tentative composition of the organizing and program committees
Presentations delivered during the workshops are based on papers that have been selected through peer- review process. Accepted workshop papers are included in the Conference Proceedings. Best workshop paper publications may be included in various Transactions or other journals.
