The workshop programme is an important part of AIED Conferences.
It provides a forum for a highly focused, intensive exploration
of the current work and directions in a well defined area

more mature work, the workshops provide an outstanding opportunity
to discuss work in progress, to establish links with other
researchers at the development stages of their next major
projects and to participate to forum discussions on specific
We seek proposals for workshops which may range from a half-day
to two days.
Format for submissions:
Please email proposals to the Workshop Chair firstname.lastname@example.org
with the following information:
- Workshop title and broad description: Clearly indicate
the motivation for organising the workshop, the basis for
claiming that it is an area of activity and likely to be
of interest to a solid core of AIED participants If the
workshop has been organized in the past at an AIED or other
conference, please give details (audience, URL if available).
- Workshop organisers: Proposals are more likely
to be successful if the proposal includes an organising
committee of at least five people and describes how each
of them is active in the area of the proposal. Indicate

- Workshop format and organisation: Indicate the
style of workshop, be it a focused discussion forum, a sequence

being a mini-conference.
- Expected audience: Give your estimate of the number
of participants and state the reasons why AIED participants
would want to attend the proposed workshop. If applicable,
