This book contains the contributions presented at the 6th international KES conference on Smart Education and e-Learning (KES SEEL-2019), which took place at St. Julian's, Malta, June 17-19, 2019. It contains fifty-five high-quality peer-reviewed papers that are grouped into several interconnected parts: Part 1 - Smart Education, Part 2 - Smart e-Learning, Part 3 - Smart Pedagogy, Part 4 - Smart Education: Systems and Technology, Part 5 - Smart Education: Case Studies and Research, Part 6 - Students with Disabilities and Smart Education/University, and Part 7 - Mathematical Modelling of Smart Education and Economics of Smart University.
Smart education and smart e-learning are emerging and rapidly growing areas with the potential to transform existing teaching strategies, learning environments, and educational activities and technology in the classroom. Smart education and smart e-learning focus on enabling instructors to develop new ways of achieving excellence in teaching in highly technological smart classrooms, and providing students with new opportunities to maximize their success and select the best options for their education, location and learning style, as well as the mode of content delivery. This book serves as a useful source of research data and valuable information on current research projects, best practices and case studies for faculty, scholars, Ph.D. students, administrators, and practitioners - all those who are interested in smart education and smart e-learning.
Dr. Vladimir Uskov is a Professor of Computer Science and Information Systems and Director of the InterLabs Research Institute at Bradley University. He obtained his Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Computer Science from Moscow Aviation Institute - Technical University, Russia. He has previously worked at the University of Cincinnati and Michigan State University (USA), Moscow State Technical University and Moscow Aviation Institute - Technical University (Russia), and various other universities in Japan, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and France. His current research is focused on engineering of software/hardware systems and tools for Smart University, Smart Education, Smart Classroom and design of innovative teaching and learning strategies for highly technological Smart Pedagogy. He has published 3 textbooks, 5 chapter books and more than 330 papers in international journals and conference proceedings.
Dr. Robert Howlett is the Executive Chair of KES International, a non-profit organization that facilitates knowledge transfer and the dissemination of research results in areas including Intelligent Systems, Sustainability, and Knowledge Transfer. He is a Visiting Professor at Bournemouth University in the UK. His technical expertise is in the use of intelligent systems to solve industrial problems. He has been successful in applying artificial intelligence, machine learning and related technologies to sustainability and renewable energy systems; condition monitoring, diagnostic tools and systems; and automotive electronics and engine management systems. His current research work is focussed on the use of smart microgrids to achieve reduced energy costs and lower carbon emissions in areas such as housing and protected horticulture.
Dr. Lakhmi C. Jain is currently serving at the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia. A Fellow of the Institution of Engineers, Australia, Professor Jain founded KES International in order to provide the professional community with enhanced opportunities for publication, knowledge exchange, cooperation and teambuilding. Bringing together over 5,000 researchers from universities and companies worldwide, KES facilitates international cooperation and generates synergies in teaching and research. Further, it regularly provides networking opportunities for the professional community through one of the largest conferences of its kind. Professor Jain's main interests lie in artificial intelligence paradigms and their applications to complex systems, security, e-education, e-healthcare, unmanned aerial vehicles and intelligent agents.
