Call for Papers

The Fourth International Conference on Concept Mapping follows on the success of the first three Conferences held Pamplona, San José, and Tallinn/Helsinki in bringing together scholars and practitioners interested in concept mapping. It is being organized by the Universidad de Chile and the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, USA. (Follow these links for the Program and links to papers of cmc2004, cmc2006, and cmc2008).

The Conference is aimed at all persons interested in the use of concept maps (based on the work of Dr. Joseph Novak), including, but not limited to: facilitation of learning; eliciting, capturing, archiving, and using "expert" knowledge; planning instruction; assessment of "deep" understandings; research planning; collaborative knowledge modeling; creation of "knowledge portfolios"; and administrative and strategic planning and monitoring. We expect participants from a broad range of fields presenting a wide variety of research and applications of concept mapping. All presentations at the conference are expected to include time for questions, answers, and scholarly discussion.

Electronic proposals can be submitted in the following categories:

All papers should be written and presented in Spanish or English. The Proceedings of the Conference will be published as a book by the University of Chile and posted on the Conference web site.
