Deadline for submissions: EXTENDED 6 May 2016

CMC is the premier venue for presenting innovative experiences and research related to concept mapping attracting every two years a large number of high quality submissions and participants from a broad range of fields, from both industry and academia. It is aimed at all persons interested in the use of concept maps (based on the work of Dr. Joseph Novak), including, but not limited to: facilitation of learning; eliciting, capturing, archiving, and using "expert" knowledge; planning instruction; assessment of "deep" understandings; research planning; collaborative knowledge modeling; creation of "knowledge portfolios"; curriculum design; eLearning, and administrative and strategic planning and monitoring.

In this announcement we present the Languages in which presentations will be accepted, the Categories of submissions, the Submission Dates, and a general overview of the Conference Program.

Languages

CMC2016 offers the opportunity for presentations in English, Spanish and Portuguese.

CMC2016's official language is English. However, one of the parallel sessions will include simultaneous translation of oral presentations from Spanish and Portuguese to English. So a number of oral presentations papers will be accepted in Spanish or Portuguese for this session. Posters and Innovative Experiences can also be submitted in English, Spanish or Portuguese. However, the rest of the conference will be held in English with no translation.

Presentation Categories

Presentation categories include:

Oral Presentations (with paper)
Virtual Presentations (with paper)
Poster Presentation (with paper)
Poster Presentation (without paper)
Virtual Poster Presentation (with paper)
Virtual Poster Presentation (without paper)
Presentations of Innovative Experiences (without paper)
All submissions will be evaluated and selected by the Program Committee.

Virtual presentations are provided for authors who beforehand know they will not be able to attend, but want their contribution to be part of the conference. Each category is explained below.

Oral Presentations with Paper: Full papers are reports of completed research accepted by a panel of experts and peers (the Program Committee) and will be published in the conference proceedings. There are three categories for papers: (a) empirical research, (b) model or theory development, and (c) theorizing from the literature. The time allotted for each session is 30 minutes (20 minutes presentation/10 minutes discussion). Audience participation, as a principle of adult education, is stressed. Full papers submissions have a length of up to 8 pages. Authors of accepted Oral Presentations with Paper are expected to physically attend the conference to present their paper in order for the paper to be included in the Proceedings and as part of the Program. Papers submitted but not accepted for Oral Presentation may be recommended accepted as a Poster Presentation with Paper.

Virtual Presentations with Paper: Full papers are reports of completed research accepted by a panel of experts and peers (the Program Committee) and will be published in the conference proceedings. There are three categories for papers: (a) empirical research, (b) model or theory development, and (c) theorizing from the literature. Full papers submissions have a length of up to 8 pages. This category is specific for authors who know they will not be able to physical attend the conference. Authors, in addition to submitting the final version of their Paper, must submit a Power Point (or equivalent) presentation (with audio) or a video that will be uploaded to the conference Web site. The presentation will therefore be accessible for all participants during and after the conference. There will not be on-line or remote presentations by the author.

Poster Presentations with Paper: The posters will form a visual display prepared by conference participants describing a research initiative, program, pedagogical model, and/or best practice on how concept mapping is applied in a variety of settings. Poster presentations serve as an effective forum for the exchange of information and a means to communicate ideas, research, and programs. Poster papers should have a maximum length of 4 pages and will be published in the conference proceedings. Authors of accepted Poster Presentations with Paper are expected to physically attend the conference to present and explain their poster in order for the poster to be included in the Proceedings and as a part of the Program.
