The Alpine CSCL Rendez-vous 2007, January 21-26th, is an initiative of the Kaleidocope CSCL SIG to launch a sustainable series of scientific meetings. The Rendez-vous is not a conference, but a set of autonomous events organized at the same place at the same time: the rendez-vous of our community.
Workshop will share breaks (coffee, ski or meals). The program includes 8 workshops, 4 on each side of the week. At the middle of the week (Tuesday 18:30 till Wednesday 19:00) will be the Rendez-Vous day: a set of activities for the CSCL community organized by Kaleidoscope CSCL SIG. Each workshop includes a break from 12:30 till 16:30 during which participants may enjoy the ski resort, relax in the pool or whatever. The weather forecast for that these dates is excellent.
