The conference took place as part of the Smart Digital Futures 2017 multi-theme conference, held in Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal on 21–23 June 2017, which brings together AMSTA, IDT, InHorizons, InMed, SEEL and IIMSS in one venue. It provided an international forum for researchers and scientists to share their work and experiences in the field of multimedia and intelligent interactive systems and services.
Smart education and smart e-Learning are emerging and rapidly growing areas. They represent the innovative integration of smart systems, technologies and objects, smart environments, smart pedagogy, smart learning and academic analytics, various branches of computer science and computer engineering, and state-of-the-art smart educational software and/or hardware systems.
It contains a total of 48 peer-reviewed book chapters that are grouped into several parts: Part 1 – Smart Pedagogy, Part 2 – Smart e-Learning, Part 3 – Systems and Technologies for Smart Education, Part 4 – Smart Teaching, and Part 5 – Smart Education: National Initiatives and Approaches.
The book offers a valuable source of research data, information on best practices, and case studies for educators, researchers, Ph.D. students, administrators, and practitioners—and all those who are interested in innovative areas of smart education and smart e-Learning.
The 37 revised full papers presented together with 40 short papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 166 submissions. The papers discuss a range of topics including: Semantic Web and Semantics; Graph Matching; Data Modeling, Data Abstraction, and Uncertainty; Preferences and Query Optimization; Data Integration and RDF Matching; Security and Privacy; Web Search; Data Clustering; Top-K and Skyline Queries; Data Mining and Big Data; Service Computing; Continuous and Temporal Data, and Continuous Query Language; Text Processing and Semantic Search; Indexing and Concurrency Control Methods; Data Warehouse and Data Stream Warehouse; Data Mining and Machine Learning; Recommender Systems and Query Recommendation; Graph Algorithms; Semantic Clustering and Data Classification.
