Call for Bids for EMOOCs 2023

After EMOOCs 2013 and 2014 (Lausanne, Switzerland), 2015 (Mons, Belgium), 2016 (Graz, Austria), 2017 (Madrid, Spain), 2019 (Naples, Italy), and 2021 (Potsdam, Germany) we are looking for institutions interested in hosting EMOOCs 2023.

EMOOCs is not a standard academic conference where researchers present their work, but a meeting of MOOC stakeholders: decision makers, production teams, pedagogical advisors, corporate actors, teachers, activists… and researchers. The main format is hence not only presentations, but also panels or other kinds of discussion formats.

The application to host EMOOCs 2023 should be a 4-5 pages in a PDF file, composed of the following items:

  • Relevance: How is the institution engaged in MOOCs? What makes this institution a particular MOOC player?
  • Who will be the General Chair (URL to his/her webpage) and who will be in the organization committee?
  • Location & Dates: where and when would the event be hosted? Is it easy to reach? What makes this place attractive?
  • Budget: tentative financial plans, including registration fees.
  • Activities: a first overview of what the program could be (innovative conference formats would be highly welcomed), and whether EMOOCs 2023 will be co-located with any other event.

Please submit your proposal to Carlos Delgado Kloos <> by December 31st, 2021.

The location will be selected by a committee of a few persons who played a major role in previous events: Mauro Calise, Carlos Delgado Kloos, Yves Deville, Martin Ebner, Michael Gaebel, Patrick Jermann, Catherine Mongenet, Marcus Specht, Gideon Shimshon, Thomas Staubitz.
