*    AIED 2015 Call for Interactive Events* 

The Interactive Events track will showcase interactive demonstrations of 
systems that exhibit intelligent educational behaviors. These systems 
can run in various ways, such as stand-alone, web, mobile devices, etc. 
The track welcomes multiple types of applications, including adaptive 
educational environments, educational games, intelligent tutoring 
systems, learning management systems, personal learning environments, 
and others.

In Interactive Events, AIED attendees will experience first-hand new and 
emerging intelligent learning environments. This is your chance to 
engage conference attendees at a personal level by letting them see, 
touch, or hear your vision for the future of AIED. We expect that your 
Interactive Event is ready to be tried out, questioned and interacted 
with. We encourage authors submitting papers or posters to the main 
conference to also propose demoing your system. In this way, attendees 
can experience your work interactively in addition to your formal 

Submissions will undergo peer review. Accepted submissions will be 
included in the AIED conference proceedings as a two-page Interactive 
Event description.

If you submit both an Interactive Event proposal and a related paper or 
poster, please explain how your Interactive Event makes a distinct 
   - Example 1. Emphasize the user interface and user experience, and 
their connections to artificial intelligence techniques, rather than the 
algorithms, models, or data analyses that may be more suitable for the 
paper and poster submissions.
   - Example 2. Create a simulation illustrating the core algorithm in 
your software to help attendees understand a complex mathematical model.

*Submission Instructions*
Special EasyChair submission site for AIED Interactive Events:

Submit a two-page proposal using the Springer conference proceedings 
template (Word2007 
LaTeX2e <>) 
for your submission. Should you need it, you can find more information 
at the Springer Author information page 
<>. Papers 
not in this format, that are overlength, or include modifications to the 
template will be returned.

The submission has  to include the following information:
   - A brief explanation of the system’s purpose.
   - A discussion on the significance of the approach implemented 
(considering user interface and user experience, connections to 
artificial intelligence techniques, etc).
   - An outline of your demo.
   - If available, a summary of the experiments with users where the 
system has been tested.
   - A URL of a web-viewable presentation illustrating your Interactive 
Event, e.g., scenarios, screenshots, video clips of the system.

The web-viewable presentation should serve as a showcase for the 
Interactive Event itself and, to the extent possible, as a 
self-explanatory substitute that will remain accessible after AIED2015 
on the conference web site. Videos will be played during the conference 
on TV sets around the conference venue.

In addition, for organizational purposes, please include a third page 
(not necesarily in the Springer format) with the description of the 
infrastructure required to set up your Interactive Event at the 
conference (e.g., number of computers/devices you expect to bring so the 
number of electrical outlets and size of the tables can be prepared, 
etc.). Note that the conference will not provide computers or other 
devices (see Equipment section), but aims to provide the required 
infrastructure for you to use it. This page will be omitted from the 

Please submit your Interactive Event proposal via this EasyChair link:


*    Important Note:* this EasyChair link is different from the one used 
for full papers, posters and DC papers.

*Evaluation Criteria*
An Interactive Event Program Commitee will be set up with members from 
the Conference Program Committee. The Interactive Event Chairs (in 
consultation with this Committee) will select proposals based upon 
expected interest to AIED attendees, interactivity, scientific value, 
originality, innovation and potential logistic constraints. Commercial 
products are eligible, but sales and marketing activities are not 

*Form and Content*
Depending on the number of accepted submissions, the Interactive Events 
will run in one or more sessions to provide the opportunity for hands-on 
interaction with the system. Active participation of AIED participants 
in the Interactive Event session(s) will be fostered. Additional details 
might be provided when closer to the conference dates.
A Best Interactive Event Award will be given based on the review scores 
of the Interactive Event submission and the audience feedback during the 
demonstration at the conference.
The AIED conference will provide tables, chairs, power and wireless 
Internet connection.
Presenters should provide the rest, including computers and other 
devices with necessary software installed.

*Important Dates*
   - Submission (description, URL and infrastructure): Feb 2, 2015
   - Acceptance notification: Feb. 25, 2015
   - Camera-ready (2 pages for proceedings and URL): Mar 26, 2015
