The International Conference on History, Theory and Methodology of Learning (ICHTML) is a peer-reviewed international conference, which covers a wide range of topics related to the history, theory, and methodology of learning. The conference is focused on exploring innovative approaches to learning, as well as examining the theoretical underpinnings of various learning models and methodologies.
The conference aims to bring together researchers, educators, and practitioners from different fields who are interested in understanding how people learn, how learning can be facilitated and improved, and how learning practices and theories have evolved over time.
The conference provides a platform for sharing research findings, exchanging ideas, and discussing the latest trends and developments in the field of learning. It encourages interdisciplinary collaborations, as well as discussions on the integration of new technologies in the learning process.
We invite you to participate in the conference and look forward to fruitful cooperation.

Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit full (and original research) papers (at least 6 pages) including surveys, tutorials, perspective/colloquia articles in conference topics of interest through the HotCRP (https://notso.easyscience.education/ichtml/2023) by July 15, 2023.

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by three reviewers on the basis of technical quality, relevance, originality, significance, and clarity. If necessary, a fourth, additional reviewer will be involved. The Program Committee will use these reviews to determine which papers will be accepted for presentation at the conference. The result of the reviewing will be announced to the submitting authors by email, along with reviewer comments, if any.

We are pleased to announce that due to the sponsorship of ACNS, the Educational Dimension editorial board, and the SUES (Supporting Ukrainian Editorial Staff) initiative, authors of accepted papers will have the option to choose between two publication opportunities:

  • The first option is the "Book chapter" choice, where accepted papers in English will be published in the conference proceedings book by SCITEPRESS – Science and Technology Publications (DOI: 10.5220). This publication will be available in the SCITEPRESS Digital Library.
  • The second option is the "Journal article" choice, where accepted papers in English, German, and Ukrainian will be published in the Educational Dimension journal by ACNS – Academy of Cognitive and Natural Sciences (DOI: 10.55056). This publication will be available in Open Access format.

We encourage authors to carefully consider which publication opportunity best fits their research needs and goals. We are proud to offer these options and believe they will provide valuable exposure for the outstanding research being presented at ICHTML.

Primary requirements

  • Submissions should be:
    • basically, correct and sound;
    • original (not published elsewhere partly or in full and not submitted to other venues for simultaneous consideration);
    • presented at the conference (at least one author of each article should attend to the conference);
    • in line with the scope of ICHTML.
  • Self-citations should not exceed 10 %.
  • Authors are encouraged to refer to the Committee on Publishing Ethics (COPE) for all aspects of publication ethics (https://publicationethics.org/) and to strictly conform to the ethical rules described on COPE Core Practices, Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing, in particular:
    • A single study is not split up into several parts to increase the quantity of submissions and submitted to various edited book projects or journals or to one journal over time (e.g. "salami-publishing").
    • No data have been fabricated or manipulated (including images) to support the manuscript's conclusions.
    • No data, text, or theories by others are presented as if they were the authors own ("plagiarism"). Proper acknowledgements to other works must be given (this includes material that is closely copied (near verbatim), summarized and/or paraphrased), quotation marks are used for verbatim copying of material, and permissions are secured for material that is copyrighted.
    • Consent to submit has been received from all co-authors and responsible authorities at the institute/organization where the work has been carried out before the work is submitted.
    • Authors whose names appear on the submission have contributed sufficiently to the scientific work and therefore share collective responsibility and accountability for the results.

ICHTML requires that every conference participant, not necessarily a speaker, but also a listener, registers at the conference. A non-dedicated registration service is provided for this step. We need your registration for:
  1. Personalizing your conference information bundle
  2. Collecting statistical information about session attendance, including social events - for proper resource planning
  3. Letting the other conference participants know who you are to facilitate networking

Registration fee

We are excited to announce that, in order to support the advancement of high-quality academic conferences in Ukraine, the Academy of Cognitive and Natural Sciences will be waiving all author publication fees this year. This means that authors will be able to publish their work in the ICHTML 2023 proceedings books (to be published by SCITEPRESS) and any of ACNS journals, including Educational Dimension and Educational Technology Quarterly, free of charge.
To further support this initiative, the ICHTML program chairs are pleased to waive the registration fee for all authors. This is a fantastic opportunity for authors to share their research and contribute to the academic community without any financial burden. We encourage authors to take advantage of this unique opportunity and submit their work to ICHTML 2023.

Full research papers

Research articles should contain sufficient background and motivation and they should present proofs, where applicable, or at least outlines of such in sufficient detail to enable an expert to complete them. Thus summaries and mere announcements of papers appearing elsewhere cannot be included, although more detailed versions of e.g. a highly technical contribution may well be published elsewhere later.


Surveys should cover a sufficiently broad topic, and should normally not just review the author's own recent research. In the case of surveys proofs of results may not be necessary.

We intend to publish ICHTML post-proceedings of selected papers in the Educational Dimension journal. For this, full papers must be submitted until the post-proceedings deadline. The authors of all presented contributions will have the opportunity (but no obligation) to submit a full paper for the formal post-proceedings. These must represent original work and should not be submitted to another conference at the same time. The submission deadline for these post-proceedings will be after the conference in November 2023. There will be a second round of reviewing for selecting papers to be published in the formal proceedings.

  • Changes of authorship or in the order of authors are not accepted after acceptance of a contribution to the proceedings.
  • Requests to add or delete authors at revision stage or after publication is a serious matter, and may be considered only after receipt of written approval from all authors and detailed explanation about the role/deletion of the new/deleted author. The decision on accepting the change rests with the volume editor(s)of the proceedings.

We would like to clarify that as conference organizers, we do not have any formal relationships with indexing databases such as DOAJ, Scopus, Web of Science, and others. As a result, we cannot make any promises regarding the indexing of conference proceedings or individual papers in these databases.

We kindly ask that authors refrain from contacting us regarding indexing inquiries, as we are unable to provide any further information on this matter. If you have any questions or concerns about indexing, we recommend that you reach out directly to the indexing databases in question.

Our focus as conference organizers is to provide a platform for high-quality academic research and facilitate the dissemination of knowledge. We are committed to ensuring a smooth and seamless publication process for all accepted papers, and we look forward to showcasing the excellent work of our authors.
