ICICLE 2019: The first international conference on Learning Engineering

Dear Learning Technologists,

In January last year, IEEE Industry Connections launched a two-year investigation of the idea of "learning engineering:" defining an engineering practice and an academic discipline around the increasingly complex systems and infrastructure needed to support schools, colleges, and workplace training. The IEEE project, called ICICLE, attracted over 100 volunteers. They have spent the last 14 months preparing sessions for a 3-day conference about Learning Engineering's competencies, categories, academic curriculum, technologies, underlying science, and relationships to other disciplines and communities. Please join us for an interactive discussion about the results of their work and about the next steps for the Learning Engineering community. 

ICICLE 2019 will take place on 20-23 May at George Mason University’s Arlington Campus. 

The registration/hotel site is now live, and early bird rates are available: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/icicle-2019-conference-on-learning-engineering-tickets-51027178665.
