After its kick-off as IWALT in Palmerston North, New Zealand (2000), ICALT has been held in Madison, USA (2001), Kazan, Russia (2002), Athens, Greece (2003), Joensuu, Finland (2004), Kaohsiung, Chinese Taiwan (2005), Kerkade, The Netherlands (2006), Niigata, Japan (2007), Santander, Spain (2008), Riga, Latvia (2009), Sousse, Tunisia (2010), Athens, Georgia, USA (2011), Rome, Italy (2012), Beijing, China (2013), Athens, Greece (2014), Hualien, Chinese Taiwan (2015), Austin, Texas, USA (2016), Timisoara, Romania (2017), and Mumbai, India (2018).


The IEEE Technical Committee on Learning Technology (TCLT) has been founded on the premise that emerging technology has the potential to dramatically improve learning. The purpose of this technical committee is to contribute to the field of Learning Technology and to serve the needs of professionals working in this field. The IEEE Technical Committee on Learning Technology (TCLT) has initiated a number of activities to promote research and development of Advanced Learning Technologies. These activities foster collaboration among academic and professional communities. Click here to learn about IEEE TCLT in greater detail.

IEEE Computer Society Open Conference Statement

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are central to the goals of the IEEE Computer Society and all of its conferences. Equity at its heart is about removing barriers, biases, and obstacles that impede equal access and opportunity to succeed. Diversity is fundamentally about valuing human differences and recognizing diverse talents. Inclusion is the active engagement of Diversity and Equity.

A goal of the IEEE Computer Society is to foster an environment in which all individuals are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination. For this reason, the IEEE Computer Society is firmly committed to team compositions in all sponsored activities, including but not limited to, technical committees, steering committees, conference organizations, standards committees, and ad hoc committees that display Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

IEEE Computer Society meetings, conferences and workshops must provide a welcoming, open and safe environment, that embraces the value of every person, regardless of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, religion, national origin, ancestry, or disability. All individuals are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination, including harassment based on any of the above factors.

IEEE Event Conduct and Safety Statement

IEEE believes that science, technology, and engineering are fundamental human activities, for which openness, international collaboration, and the free flow of talent and ideas are essential. Its meetings, conferences, and other events seek to enable engaging, thought provoking conversations that support IEEE’s core mission of advancing technology for humanity. Accordingly, IEEE is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment to all participants, including staff and vendors, at IEEE-related events.

IEEE seeks to provide a secure environment at its events. Participants should report any behavior inconsistent with the principles outlined here, to on site staff, security or venue personnel, or to eventconduct@ieee.org.

The 2019

The 19th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies (ICALT 2019) will be organized at the Computing Institute of the Federal University of Alagoas (UFAL), Maceió-Alagoas, Brazil. ICALT 2019 will be hosted by the Center of Excellence for Social Technologies (NEES) research group. NEES is a research group from the Computing Institute at the Federal University of Alagoas. It focuses on research and development of IT Solutions, generating scientific knowledge and promoting its transference for the society, companies and scientific community. Its vision is to be an international reference in the generation of knowledge, empowering people with social view and supporting new spin-offs related to social entrepreneurship and IT.
