Bringing together disparate fields that contribute to technology-enhanced learning, through Networks of Excellence.

Tomaž gives some outlines about the reviewing process. Most papers from Germany, then UK. Full paper acceptance rate 21%.
Carlos Delgado Kloos, local organiser gives some local information. El Greco was born in Crete and died in Toledo, 401 years ago. EC-TEL started in Crete but is hopefully not going to die here in Toledo. Practical local arrangements for the conference. We are in the Spanish press, apparently.
