Call for papers ITS 2010: the Tenth International Conference on 
Intelligent Tutoring Systems

June 14-18, 2010, in Pittsburgh, USA

Conference website:

We invite contributions to the ITS 2010 conference, to be held June 
14-18, 2010. The technical sessions will take place June 15-17, with 
June 14 and18 devoted to workshops and tutorials. The conference will be 
in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, host to the recent G-20 summit and 
rated the USA?s most livable city by The Economist.

Just prior to ITS 2010, the Third International Conference on 
Educational Data Mining (EDM 2010) will also take place in Pittsburgh. 

The ITS 2010 conference is part of an on-going bi-annual series of 
top-flight international conferences on the use of advanced educational 
technologies that are adaptive to users or groups of users. These highly 
interdisciplinary conferences bring together researchers in the learning 
sciences, computer science, cognitive or educational psychology, 
cognitive science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and 

The theme of the ITS 2010 conference is Bridges to Learning, a theme 
that connects the scientific content of the conference and the geography 
of the city. The conference will address the use of advanced 
technologies as bridges for learners and facilitators to robust learning 
outcomes. It will encompass all aspects of learning with advanced 
technologies, including cognitive, social, affective, and motivational 
aspects. The conference will address the design, development, use, and 
evaluation of advanced educational systems in a wide variety of 
contexts, as well as the mining of data about student learning generated 
by such systems. Papers describing empirical studies are particularly
