                                         [Apologies for multiple
                                              International Workshop on 
        Combining Intelligent and Adaptive Hypermedia Methods/Techniques
                                        in Web-Based Education Systems
<> )
                                                in conjunction with the
                           Sixteenth ACM Conference on Hypertext and
Hypermedia (HT'05)
                                 September 6-9, 2005, Salzburg,Austria

                                            CALL FOR PAPERS

There have been a great number of research efforts in designing and
implementing web-based education systems that offer personalized
learning or other personalized educational facilities to users.
Personalization concerns a number of educational activities/facilities,
like lesson planning, teaching content specification, answer/solution
analysis, problem solving support, student evaluation, test generation,
student collaboration,  class monitoring, educational resources
recommendation, etc. Personalization is achieved by using
methods/techniques coming from two main sources: Artificial Intelligence
(AI) and Adaptive Hypermedia (AH). AI methods/techniques include:
knowledge representation and reasoning, expert systems, AI planning,
machine learning, neurocomputing, etc. AH methods/techniques include:
adaptive text presentation, adaptive link annotation, adaptive link
sorting, etc. AH methods/techniques may use AI methods/techniques for
their implementation. However, most of the existing Adaptive Education
Hypermedia Systems use methods/techniques that can hardly be considered
as "Intelligent". On the other hand, Intelligent Tutoring Systems are
education systems that really use intelligent methods/techniques for
implementing tutoring tasks. Also, apart from "traditional" AI
methods/techniques, there have been Web-oriented AI methods/techniques,
like web usage mining or filtering techniques.  Furthermore, Semantic
Web is a source of additional intelligent methods/techniques, like
ontologies based representation, description logics based reasoning etc.
So, web-based intelligent/adaptive education systems that combine an AI
method/technique either with another AI method/technique or with an AH
method/technique seem to be an interesting research direction. 
The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers and
developers of web-based intelligent and adaptive education systems to
exchange experiences and ideas on how intelligent methods/techniques can
be combined either with themselves or with adaptive hypermedia
methods/techniques towards more effective personalized education.
Topics of interest include (but not limited to) the following
   AI in authoring and visualizing adaptive educational hypermedia
   AI in collaborative web-based educational systems
   AI planning techniques for web-based curriculum sequencing
   AI techniques for adaptive presentation and navigation
   AI techniques for pedagogical strategies implementation
   Cognitive models in adaptive hypermedia educational systems
   Data mining in adaptive education hypermedia systems
   Description logics in semantic web-based education systems
   Expert systems in adaptive education hypermedia systems
   Hybrid AI techniques in web-based education systems
   Intelligent agent based adaptive educational hypermedia systems
   Knowledge representation techniques for web-based student modeling
   Logic based representations in web-based adaptive education systems
   Machine learning for web-based student modeling
   AI in automatic generation of educational hypermedia resources
   Neurocomputing in adaptive education hypermedia systems
   Ontologies for semantic web-based tutoring tasks
   Recommender systems in/for web-based education
   Web usage mining for web-based education
Paper submission and processing
We are interested in high quality research papers on the above or
related topics. Interested authors should submit electronic versions of
their papers (in pdf, ps or word format) to the Workshop chair (see at
the end of the page). The papers should not exceed 10 single-spaced
pages (12p, Times New Roman) and are due by June 12th, 2005. All papers
will be refereed by members of the program committee of the Workshop. 
Important dates
Paper submission due:       June 12th, 2005
Notification of acceptance:  July 31st, 2005
Final version due:               August 15th, 2005
Proceedings of all accepted papers will be published in pdf format and
will be available on-line on the web. Depending on the number and the
maturity of the accepted papers, selected authors may be asked to submit
extended versions of their papers to be considered (after a second
review round) for publication in a special issue of an international
journal or in an edited volume/book.
Workshop Attendance
One of the authors of each accepted paper is expected to present it at
the Workshop. Workshop participants are limited to about 20 persons.
