Dear colleague,

It is our please to invite you to participate and submit abstracts to m-ICTE2009 in order to share your achievements in the field of ICT applied to education. m-ICTE2009 will be an opportunity to meet other researchers, make new contacts and discuss about innovative pedagogical practices and initiatives using technology that foster and transform the development of education, and check the state of the art in this field. m-ICTE2009 intends to consolidate a series of conferences, which started in 2002 and whose last edition was held in Seville (Spain) in 2006 and was attended for about 450 participants of nearly 60 countries.

All authors of accepted abstracts (independently of the kind of presentation at the conference: oral, poster or virtual) will be able to submit a full paper to be considered for publication in the Conference Proceedings Book (paper length: 5 printed pages). The book will be distributed amongst all attendees during the Conference, and its whole content will be uploaded at the Conference website once the Conference has been held, as it was done in previous editions of the Conference:

The authors of the best research papers presented at the Conference will be invited to submit extended versions of their manuscripts for publication in some special issues of collaborating journals which will be announced later.
