The OLC/MERLOT Program Committee seeks proposals that reflect and showcase our vibrant community of practice — promoting theory, research, methodology and/or applied effective practices in online, blended, and web-enhanced teaching and learning. Please align your submission to your selected session type. In addition to our our regular program, we also encourage submissions for these special interest sessions:

  • Solution Design Summit: The Solution Design Summit focuses on current learning challenges where an innovative solution idea could lead to increased student success and an enhanced student learning experience. The winning team for the Solution Design Summit receives:
    • A one-year OLC Professional Membership for up to 5 team members. Current OLC members would receive a 1-year extension to their existing OLC Professional Membership.
    • A complimentary OLC Accelerate 2018 or a future 2019 conference registration for up to 5 team members, not applicable to OLC Innovate 2018.
    • The opportunity to showcase their winning solution through OLC.
  • Online Learning Journal Graduate Student Emerging Ideas Sessions: We will be selecting proposals for these electronic poster-style sessions. Graduate students selected receive an additional special discount off the normal student fee for conference registration.

Please help us get the word out to your colleagues and friends who might be interested in attending and submitting a proposal! Here are some sample social posts to share with your networks:

Instructions for Submission of Papers for Evaluation:

All accepted papers will be published by IEEE CPS:
in the proceedings of The 2017 International Conference on
Computational Science and Computational Intelligence (CSCI’17).

All past CSCI proceedings have been indexed into IEEE Xplore Digital
Library and can be accessed via ieeexplore.ieee.org . For the specific
IEEE Xplore links to CSCI proceedings, refer to:

Papers should be typeset by using the general typesetting
instructions available at:
(i.e., use of regular Times New Roman, font size of 10, single line
spacing, 2-column format). Authors of accepted papers will later
receive more specific typesetting instructions. All submissions must
be original (papers must not have been previously published or
currently being considered by others for publication).

Submissions must be in either MS doc or pdf formats (6 pages for
Regular Research Papers; 4 pages for Short Papers; 2 pages for
Poster Papers – the number of pages include all figures, tables, and
references). The first page should include:

– Title of the paper.
– Name, affiliation, city, country, and email address of each author
(identify the name of the Contact Author).
– Abstract (about 100 words).
– A maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the work
described in the paper (see the list of topics).
– Write the type of the submission as “Full/Regular Research Papers”,
“Short Papers”, or “Poster Papers”.
– Write “CSCI-ISMC”

The actual paper can start from the first page (space permitting).
Submissions are to be uploaded to the submission/evaluation web site
portal at: http://american-cse.org/

Type of Submissions/Papers:

– Full/Regular Research Papers (maximum of 6 pages):
Regular Research Papers should provide detail original research
contributions. They must report new research results that represent
a contribution to the field; sufficient details and support for
the results and conclusions should also be provided. The work
presented in regular papers are expected to be at a stage of
maturity that with some additional work can be published as journal

– Short Papers (maximum of 4 pages):
Short papers report on ongoing research projects. They should provide
overall research methodologies with some results. The work presented
in short papers are expected to be at a stage of maturity that with
some additional work can be published as regular papers.

– Poster Papers (maximum of 2 pages):
Poster papers report on ongoing research projects that are still in
their infancy (i.e., at very early stages). Such papers tend to
provide research methodologies without yet concrete results.

Review Process:

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by 2 to 4 peers (except for papers that
are philosophical in nature – such papers would be considered for panel
discussions.) Confidentiality of submitted material will be maintained.
Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, impact, significance,
quality of research, quality of writing, and contribution to conference
program and diversity. Papers whose authors include one or more members
of the program committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded
review process. Authors whose papers are not selected for publication
can submit a rebuttal letter; rebuttals will be evaluated by 4 members
of the Program Committee. 161115
