The 16th International
Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education (AIED2013) 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 comprise AIED,
including computer science, cognitive and learning sciences, education, game
design, psychology, sociology, linguistics, as well as many domain-specific
areas. Since the first AIED meeting 30 years ago, both the breadth of the
research and the reach of the technologies have expanded in dramatic ways. The
theme of AIED2013 therefore seeks to capture this evolution: From education
to lifelong learning: constructing pervasive and enduring environments for
learning. In line with this theme of expansion, AIED2013 will welcome the Industry
& Innovation Track which seeks to capture the challenges, solutions,
and results from the transition of AIED technologies into the commercial
We invite academic and industry submissions to AIED 2013, which will be held July 9-13 in Memphis, TN, USA.
Modelling and Representation: Models of learners,
facilitators, tasks and problem-solving processes; Models of groups and
communities for learning; Modelling motivation, metacognition, and affective
aspects of learning; Ontological modelling; Handling uncertainty and multiple
perspectives; Representing and analysing discourse during learning
Models of Teaching and
Learning: Intelligent tutoring and scaffolding; Motivational diagnosis and
feedback; Interactive pedagogical agents and learning companions; Agents that
promote metacognition, motivation and affect; Adaptive question-answering
Intelligent Technologies: Natural language
processing; Data mining and machine learning; Knowledge representation and
reasoning; Semantic web technologies and standards; Simulation-based learning;
Learning Contexts and
Informal Learning: Educational games; Collaborative and group learning; Social
networks; Inquiry learning; Social dimensions of learning; Communities of
practice; Ubiquitous learning environments; Learning grid; Lifelong, museum,
out-of-school, and workplace learning
Innovative and Commercial
Applications: Domain-specific learning applications (e.g. language, mathematics,
science, medicine, military, industry); Scaling up and large-scale deployment
of AIED systems;
interaction; Evaluation methodologies; Studies on human learning, cognition,
affect, motivation, and attitudes; Design and formative studies of AIED systems
