Call for Papers: Security and Defence Learning 2013

The New Security Foundation is launching its Call for Papers for the ‘Security and Defence Learning Forum 2013’

Security and Defence Learning, which takes place every year in Berlin as an official pre-conference forum of ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN, has established a reputation as one of Europe’s leading conferences on technology-assisted learning for security, defence and emergency services. The event brings together academics, professional practitioners, security specialists, government officials and representatives of private sector companies for a discussion of key issues. The conference is accompanied by an exhibition, which provides an opportunity for the demonstration of new systems, services and solutions.

The New Security Foundation, which hosts Security and Defence Learning, has issued a CALL FOR PAPERS for the 2013 forum. Papers presented can expect considerable exposure not only at the forum itself but also in the ONLINE EDUCA Book of Abstracts, , and, occasionally, in New Security Magazine, the monthly online magazine produced by the New Security Foundation.

The New Security Foundation would welcome any proposals for presentations on technology-assisted learning for defence, security, and emergency services.

Themes for Security & Defence Learning Forum 2013 will likely focus on the following key topics:

  1.  New Threats and Challenges
  2.  Change, Innovate, Learn
  3.  Tools to Transform Content and Practice
  4.  New Security Learning Environments
  5. Which Environment, What Media?
  6.  The New Lust for Learning – what it means for Recruits and Employers
  7.  Technology Focus
  8. Shifts in Security Learning Culture
  9. New Developments in Training
  10. Improving Cooperation
