Welcome to the 18th International Conference on Web-based Learning (ICWL), September 23rd to September 25th 2019, hosted by the Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences.

ICWL is an annual International Conference, founded by the Hong Kong Web Society. The first ICWL was held in Hong Kong in 2002. Since then, ICWL has been held in Australia (2003), China (2004, 2008, 2010, 2015), Hong Kong (2005, 2011), Malaysia (2006), United Kingdom (2007), Germany (2009), Romania (2012), Taiwan (2013), Estonia (2014), Italy (2016), South Africa (2017), and Thailand (2018).

In 2019 we are organizing the 18th ICWL conference and colocated events from September 23rd to September 25th in Magdeburg, returning to Germany. ICWL will feature a technical program of refereed papers selected by the international program committee, poster sessions, and keynote addresses offered by eminent scholars.
