The Fourth International Conference on Concept
Mapping follows on the success of the first three
Conferences held in Pamplona, San José, and
Tallinn/Helsinki in bringing together scholars
and practitioners interested in concept mapping.
It is being organized by the Universidad de Chile
and the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, USA.

The Conference is aimed at all persons interested
in the use of concept maps (based on the work of
Dr. Joseph Novak), including, but not limited to:
facilitation of learning; eliciting, capturing,
archiving, and using “expert” knowledge; planning
instruction; assessment of “deep” understandings;
research planning; collaborative knowledge
modeling; creation of “knowledge portfolios”; and
administrative and strategic planning and
monitoring. We expect participants from a broad
range of fields presenting a wide variety of
research and applications of concept
mapping.  All presentations at the conference are
expected to include time for questions, answers, and scholarly discussion.

Electronic paper submissions can be submitted in the following categories:

• Paper Proposals: Papers are reports of
completed research accepted by a panel of experts
and peers and will be published in the conference
proceedings. There are three categories for
papers: (a) empirical research, (b) model or
theory development, and (c) theorizing from the
literature. The time allotted for each session is
30 minutes (20 minutes presentation/10 minutes
discussion). Audience participation, as a
principle of adult education, is stressed.  Full
papers submissions have a length of up to 8 pages.

• (*NEW*) Research Roundtable Proposals: Research
roundtables provide an opportunity to informally
discuss research in progress and research issues
with a group of participants. A 2 page
summary/abstract will be published in the
conference proceedings. The time allotted for
each session is 50 minutes. Several roundtable
discussions will take place concurrently in the
same room with each presenter assigned to a different table.

• (*NEW*) Symposium Proposals: A symposium
presents diverse or conflicting perspectives on a
compelling topic or issue that is or should be of
concern to concept mapping community.  A
symposium should NOT be merely a presentation of
a related set of papers.  Symposia should include
a 4 page formal paper and this paper will be
published in the conference proceedings. The time
allotted for each session is 50 minutes. Audience participation is

• Poster Presentations (with paper):  The posters
will form a visual display prepared by conference
participants describing a research initiative,
program, pedagogical model, and/or best practice
on how concept mapping is applied in a variety of
settings.  Poster presentations serve as an
effective forum for the exchange of information
and a means to communicate ideas, research, and
programs. Poster papers should have a maximum
length of 4 pages and will be published in the conference proceedings.

• (*NEW*) Poster Presentation (without
paper).  Posters that do not include a formal
paper will also be accepted for presentation at
the conference.  Participants can submit a 500
word abstract if they are interested in
presenting a poster without writing a formal
paper. The abstracts will be reviewed for selection at the conference.

• (*NEW*) Electronic Posters. There will be a
limited number of electronic posters accepted at
the conference.  Electronic posters can be
posters with or without a formal paper. The
number of electronic posters available will be
determined by the host site for the conference,
and the decision will be made on space available and cost.

All papers should be written and presented in
Spanish or English. The Proceedings of the
Conference will be published as a book by the
University of Chile and posted on the Conference web site.

All papers from previous conferences are
available at
