Virtual and remote laboratories extend modern e-learning environments with practical training aspects in many fields such as computer sciences, natural sciences and electrical/ mechanical engineering. Laboratory classes, which are an important part of engineering education, are often resource intensive. Virtual and remote laboratories provide an efficient way to reduce the required resources by providing remote access to a reduced number of real experiments or simulated replacements. The aim of this workshop is to present and discuss the latest development in the area of remote and virtual laboratories. Among other topics the interconnections of heterogeneous laboratory infrastructures by using middleware will be one special topic of the workshop. The workshop will be sponsored by the Leonardo Da Vinci Programme of the European Union within the VET-TREND-project (RO/06/B/F/NT175014).
