Call for Papers

The International Mobile Education and Learning Technologies Conference (IMELT) 2020 is a multi-disciplinary forum that aims to bring together scholars, researchers, and practitioners from around the world to present and discuss research findings in the fields of mobile learning and education technologies.

With the slogan  “Research in Education Technology: Adapting to 21st Century Learning Needs”, the 8th IMELT organizing committee is calling for research articles or academic papers to be presented in the event.
