Calls For Workshop Proposals

Deadline: 9th December, 2002 - CLOSED

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 within the broad scope of AIED. Where the main programme reports 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 research issues.

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 kalina@it.usyd.edu.au 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 also which of the organizer is the main point of contact during the proposal reviewing process, in case of queries.
  • Workshop format and organisation: Indicate the style of workshop, be it a focused discussion forum, a sequence of presentations based upon submitted and refereed papers, whether an invited keynote speaker is planned, whether there will be demonstrations. It is desirable that workshop should provide opportunities for discussion, rather than simply 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, also indicate broader communities (medical, telecommunication, maths teaching, and so on) to which the workshop would be particularly useful. In particular if the workshop could be of great interest to the industry let us know. A list of people who have confirmed their intention to participate inthis workshop would be most helpful.

Once the workshops have been accepted, workshop organisers will be responsible for the following:

  • Producing and distributing call for workshop papers.
  • Maintain web site for the workshop and link common important dates to the aied website to ensure coherence.
  • Selecting workshop contributions to be included in the proceedings and ensuring fully refereed reviewing process. (There will be a set of proceedings with ISBN printed for each workshop.)
  • Sending workshop contributions in an electronic form to the workshop chair by the deadline and in the format required for publication.
  • Contributing to attract a suitable-sized audience to the workshop.
  • Scheduling and coordinating the activities of the workshop.
  • Maintaining contact and collaboration with the Workshop Chair to ensure smooth organisation of all aspects, including consistency of web sites, timely production of the printed proceedings for the workshop, local arrangement.
