The CELDA conference aims to address the main issues concerned with evolving learning processes and supporting pedagogies and applications in the digital age. There have been advances in both cognitive psychology and computing that have affected the educational arena. The convergence of these two disciplines is increasing at a fast pace and affecting academia and professional practice in many ways. Conference Official Language: English.

This is a blind peer-reviewed conference.

We are a member of Crossref, a non-profit membership organization for scholarly publishing working to make content easy to find, link, cite and assess. With this connection, each published paper in IADIS Conferences’ Proceedings will be allocated a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) number for its fast and easy citation and indexation.
