AIED 2011: Artificial Intelligence in Education (2011)

A number of researchers have requested an extension for the submission
deadline for AIED 2011 because the current date runs into proposal and
project report submission deadlines. To accommodate these requests, the
submission deadline for full papers, posters, and YRT papers is extended
to midnight GMT on January 21, 2011 (Friday). This is a hard deadline,
and no further extensions will be accommodated. 

Thank you,

Program Chairs.


Artificial Intelligence in Education 2011
University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand.
27th June - 1st July 2011


The 15th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in
Education (AIED 2011) is the next in a longstanding series of biennial
international conferences for high quality research in intelligent
systems and cognitive science for educational computing applications.
The conference provides opportunities for the cross-fertilization of
approaches, techniques and ideas from the many fields that make up this
interdisciplinary research field, including: agent technologies,
artificial intelligence, computer science, cognitive and learning
sciences, education, educational technologies, game design, psychology,
philosophy, sociology, anthropology, linguistics, and the many
domain-specific areas for which AIED systems have been designed,
deployed and evaluated.

To reflect these broad interests that combine advanced technology with
advanced understanding of learners, learning, and the context of
learning, the theme of AIED 2011 is "Next Generation Learning
Environments: Supporting Cognitive, Metacognitive, Social and Affective
Aspects of Learning".

We invite submissions to the AIED 2011 conference, which will be held 27
June - 1 July 2011, in Christchurch, New Zealand.

and other young/new researchers.
    * Interactive events (1-2 pages) - To showcase interactive
demonstrations of AIED systems.
    * Workshop proposals (2-4 pages) - Proposals for workshops on "hot"
topics in AIED.
