We would like to draw your attention to the Workshop on Cloud Education
Environments  - WCLOUD 2013 (held in conjunction with the 3rd International
Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science- CLOSER 2013), whose
submission deadline is scheduled for February 14, 2013. 

Cloud Learning Environments (CLEs) or Cloud Education Environments (CEE)
consider the cloud as a large ecosystem, which is not owned by any
educational organization. Within this ecosystem, learners and educators act
as the users and producers of cloud-based learning services. They have
complete control over the choice, use and sharing of the learning tools and
content provided by these services. This approach has the potential to
enable and facilitate both formal and informal learning. It allows learners
to learn anywhere and at anytime. It also facilitates collaboration among
learners and educators. Additionally, the openness, sharing and reusability
of learning tools and content on the web are technically enabled and

The workshop will focus on the exchange of relevant trends and research
results, as well as the presentation of practical experiences gained while
developing and testing cloud education environments, both from a teaching
and a learning perspective.

The workshop will be the second in a series of workshops taking place in
Europe and Latin America. The previous workshop WCLOUD 2012 has taken place
in Antigua/ Guatemala

The purpose of the 3rd International Conference on Cloud Computing and
Services Science, CLOSER 2013, focuses on the emerging area of Cloud
Computing, inspired by some latest advances that concern the infrastructure,
operations, and available services through the global network. Further, the
conference considers as essential the link to Services Science,
acknowledging the service-orientation in most current IT-driven
collaborations. The conference is nevertheless not about the union of these
two (already broad) fields, but about Cloud Computing where we are also
interested in how Services Science can provide theory, methods and
techniques to design, analyze, manage, market and study various aspects of
Cloud Computing.

Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. 

All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings book,
under an ISBN reference and on CD-ROM support.

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the
SCITEPRESS Digital Library ( <http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/>
