Final Call for Papers

Artificial Intelligence in Education 2011

Organised by the University of Canterbury and held at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, 28th June - 2st 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 education and training applications. The conference provides opportunities for the cross-fertilization of approaches, techniques and ideas from the many areas 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 28 June - 2 July 2011, in Auckland, New Zealand.
