Grandon Gill, University of South Florida, USA, Dr. Tonya Johnson, The City University of New York (CUNY), USA, and Professor Nagib Callaos, President of the International Institute of Informatics and Systemics, USA, 'Applying New Technologies and Methodologies to Academic Publishing'

5:30 PM – 6:30 PMParticipatory Workshop *

Speaker: Professor William Swart, East Carolina University, USA, 'Implementing, Measuring, and Improving Blended Learning '

* Conference participants who attend a whole workshop will receive an attendance certificate signed by its speaker and/or facilitator.

** Participatory Keynote Address is a an Address in which each attendee may interrupt the keynote speaker to make non immediately consecutive questions and/or a short comment.Each participant in this event has the option to write an invited paper, NECESSARILY and EXPLICITLY RELATED to the keynote address. These papers might be published in the post-conference proceedings, with no additional charge, as invited papers, after going through an internal editorial review, as long as they are submitted no later than three weeks after the conference is over. Some of these papers might be selected for journal publication as invited papers or after being reviewed by the journal's reviewers and accepted according the journal acceptance policy.

*** Attendees of conversational sessions or Participatory Panels will have the opportunity to write position or reflection papers necessarily and explicitly related to the topics discussed in the respective session. These papers might be published in the post-conference proceedings, with no additional charge, as invited papers, after going through internal editorial review. The deadline for these papers will be 21 days after the conference is over. One of the objectives of these conversational sessions is to provide a learning process through the sharing of ideas, experiences, opinions, and knowledge, via inter-disciplinary communication. This learning

might generate, in turn, position or reflections papers that should be, in our opinion, included in the proceedings of the conference, because a) they are part of its consequences and the information and knowledge that was shared through it, and b) they might, in turn, generate more inter-disciplinary communication.
