The Call for Interactive Events is now closed


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 behaviours. Interactive Events are a forum for enabling AIED attendees to interact first-hand with new and emerging education systems. We especially encourage authors submitting papers or posters to the main conference to also submit Interactive Event proposals. Accepted Interactive Events will be represented in the main conference proceedings as a one-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 a proposal outlining what you intend to demonstrate.

Your proposal should be a Web-viewable, step-by-step 5-minute Interactive Event presentation, such as a sequence of key screenshots, tutorial dialogue turns or video clips, annotated to explain the system's purpose, user input, system output, and a summary of what is being demonstrated. It should serve as a plan for the Interactive Event itself and, to the extent possible, as a self-explanatory substitute that will remain accessible after AIED2011 on the conference web site. Text may total up to 2000 words.


Email your IE proposal to and according to the following instructions:

  • Include [AIED2011 Interactive Event proposal] in the Subject line of the message.
  • Attach a one-page abstract as a .pdf file in the AIED paper format (see , with Interactive Event in the title, author information, email, and a brief explanation of the system’s purpose, significance and novelty. Final abstracts will be published in the AIED proceedings with a pointer to your web-accessible scenarios.
  • Include the scenario as either (a) the URL to view it as web page(s) in a standard browser, OR (b) a zipped folder of web pages and other required material, OR (c) a .pdf file
  • Indicate whether the event will require an Internet connection.


The Interactive Event Chairs (in consultation with the Program Chairs) 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.


IE chairs will confer Best Interactive Event Award(s) based in part on audience feedback.


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