Industrial/Commercial papers

The Industrial and Commercial papers track is targeted towards practitioners and professionals working in the field of ICLS. We seek proposals that show the application, commercial aspects or practical challenges in any of the areas relevant to the learning sciences and in particular to the conference theme of Rethinking Learning in the Digital Age: Making the Learning Sciences Count.

All submissions will be reviewed by peers from industry and academia. The focus in review will be on general interest for the audience and how well the presentation enlightens industry realities, rather than strict academic criteria. All submissions will remain confidential during the review process.
