Welcome to ICWL & SETE 2023

ICWL is an annual International Conference on Web-based Learning, founded by the Hong Kong Web Society. The first ICWL was held in Hong Kong in 2002. Since then, ICWL has been held in Melbourne (2003), Beijing (2004), Hong Kong (2005, 2011), Penang (2006), Edinburgh (2007), Jinhua (2008), Aachen (2009), Shanghai (2010), Sinaia (2012), Kenting (2013), Tallinn (2014), Guangzhou (2015), Rome (2016), Cape Town (2017), Chiang Mai (2018), Magdeburg (2019), Ningbo (2020), Macau (2021), Tenerife (2022). It will feature a technical program of refereed papers selected by the international program committee, and keynote addresses offered by eminent scholars.

SETE 2023, the eighth Annual International Symposium on Emerging Technologies for Education is also this year organized in conjunction with ICWL 2023, thanks to the University of Technology in Sydney and the Hong Kong Web Society. SETE 2023 is organized in a main track, where research papers about the SETE Topics can be submitted, and in an array of workshops, which will help achieve inclusion and diversity in the overall offer of the symposium. All accepted papers (main track and workshops), presented at the conference, will be published as a volume dedicated to SETE in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

We look forward to receiving your submissions and to seeing you at the conferences!
