and development projects in the emerging area of smart technology and its
applications in education and training.

SEEL-17 will provide an excellent opportunity for research scientists, academics,
engineers and practitioners to meet well-known experts from all over the world and
to discuss innovative ideas and approaches, advances in smart technology and
intelligent systems, state-of-the-art software and hardware systems, research findings
and outcomes, best practices and case studies, national and international projects,
institutional standards and policies, and many other topics related to smart education
and e-Learning.

Smart Education and e-Learning 2017 will be co-located under the KES Smart Digital
Futures umbrella with our other intelligent systems conferences: IIMSS, AMSTA, IDT
and the newly added InMED (Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare). Registration
