Dear All

The 10th annual OpenCourseWare Consortium Global Conference will be held in
Ljubljana, Slovenia, on April 23-25, 2014.

The OpenCourseWare Consortium and the Knowledge for All Foundation are
jointly organizing the event whose special theme is *Open Education for a
Multicultural World.*

We invite submissions of papers on all topics related to open education for
the conference proceedings, and proposals for workshops.

The 2014 conference will be organized around four tracks:

*Research and Technology*. In this track, we expect to explore new
technologies allowing scaling and sharing of Open Educational Resources in
a faster or more economical way, to index the multimodal and multilingual
material, or to navigate and remix available material. Researchers and
developers are encouraged to present on-going research as well as running

*Open Educational Policies*, in which policy issues and their impact on
open educational practice will be discussed. Licensing issues, alternative
business models, cooperative efforts and governmental funding can all be
discussed in this track. The focus of such sessions should be on lessons
learned rather than a recounting of steps taken.

*Pedagogical Impact *will allow users to present novel uses of Open
Educational Resources and their impact on education. We welcome analysis of
the impact of Open Educational Resources on the learning process itself, as
well as deployment of OERs in MOOCs, flipped classrooms, hybrid educational
approaches and online education.

Finally, *a project dissemination track* will allow actors (teams,
projects, companies) currently involved in open education projects in
Europe to present the results of their work.


Submissions Due: December 1, 2013
Acceptance Announcements: Week of January 2, 2014
Speaker Registration Deadline: February 27, 2014
Final Papers Due: March 1, 2014
