Call for Interactive Events

Introduction
The Interactive Events track will showcase interactive demonstrations of AIED systems such as intelligent tutors, adaptive educational environments, educational games, related tools and individual components that exhibit intelligent educational behaviors. Interactive Events are a forum for enabling AIED attendees to interact first-hand with new and emerging intelligent learning environments. We especially encourage authors submitting papers or posters to the main conference to also submit Interactive Event proposals. Accepted Interactive Events will be demonstrated at the main conference and represented in the proceedings as a two-page abstract.

Form and Content
The Interactive events will run in one or more sessions (similar to a poster session) that will provide the opportunity for hands-on interaction with your system via one or more computers (provided by you). To consider your event we require an abstract with a brief explanation of the system’s purpose, significance and novelty, and an outlining what will be demoed. The abstract should be accompanied by a URL of a web-viewable Interactive Event presentation illustrating what will be demonstrated. This may include interaction scenarios, sequence of key screenshots, video clips annotated to explain the system's purpose, user input and system output. It 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 AIED2013 on the conference web site. 

Submission
Submission will be via easychair.org. More info TBA.

Instructions:
  • Submit a two-page abstract as a .pdf or .doc file in the AIED paper format following the conference submission link, with Interactive Event in the title, author information, email . Ensure that the abstract includes a URL to the web-viewable Interactive Event Presentation. URL must refer to a web page(s) that will be seen in a standard browser.

Criteria
The Interactive Event Chairs (in consultation with the Conference Program 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 appropriate.

Awards
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.

Equipment
AIED will provide screens, tables, chairs, power and Internet connections.
Presenters should provide the rest, including computers with necessary software installed.
