With the advent of powerful computing technologies, including the World Wide Web (WWW), computer-based learning environments have become more intelligent, flexible, mobile and ubiquitous. Computers, TVs, mobile phones, games, consoles, and other technologies can be transformed into smart learning environments with great potential to help students.

The expectation is that intelligent, interactive and innovative learning environments will eventually enable the realization of AAAL – Anytime, Anywhere, Anybody Learning, using most of the WWW resources and collecting inputs from the real world to create better and more personalized learning environments. Such expectation is consistent with that of the advancement of the WWW itself. Such trends facilitate the use of WWW content and resources as knowledge that can be interpreted by computers and learned by people. It is also expected that new technologies will emerge that will enable students with special needs and students in developing countries and rural areas to learn effectively even in the harshest of conditions, making the best use of teachers’ and students’ time and effort.

To achieve AAAL there is a need to find ways to integrate major advances in Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, Data Mining, Human-Computer Interaction and other sub-areas of Computer Science with smart devices in order to leverage the development of intelligent/innovative learning environments.

The aim of the ACM SAC Track on Intelligent, Interactive and Innovative Learning environments is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and schools to think together and share their visions of the next generation of educational technologies that will meet students’ needs in the 21st century.

Tha ACM SAC will be held on the campus of Tunghai University, TaiChung, Taiwan from March 21 to March 25, 2011.

Topics of Interest
We are particularly interested in technological advances in computer science, engineering and related fields that can be applied to leverage current learning systems on architectural, technological and philosophical levels. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Architectures and frameworks for intelligent learning environments
Tools and languages to support instructional and learning design
Semantic Web, Social Semantic Web and Web 2.0 in education
Distance Education
Innovative ways to analyze students’ learning
New approaches for group/individual assessment
Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning(CSCL)
Educational games (Edutainment)
Literacy technologies
Assistive Technologies
Technology in the developing world
Adaptive hypermedia in Education
Educational interactive technologies
User modeling, adaptation and personalization
Mobile and ubiquitous computing for learning
Human-Computer Interaction and Computer Vision applied to education
Application/evaluation of learning environments in specific domains
AI in Education
Educational data mining
Intelligent authoring/tutoring systems
Pedagogical agents and mutiagent systems


Authors should follow the ACM format at

Submissions should not exceed five (5) double-column pages (with the option, at additional expense of USD 80 per page, to add three more pages). Accepted papers will be published in the ACM SAC proceedings and widely available through the ACM Digital Library.
