* 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,
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
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.
Special EasyChair submission site for AIED Interactive Events:
Submit a two-page proposal using the Springer conference proceedings
for your submission. Should you need it, you can find more information
at the Springer Author information page
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.
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
Presenters should provide the rest, including computers and other
devices with necessary software installed.
