AIED 2024 : The 25th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education (AIED 2024)
Conference Series : Artificial Intelligence in Education
Call For Papers
Education has always been about creating opportunities for people to develop new skills, competencies, and productive attitudes. Education goes beyond simply communicating knowledge and aims to teach individuals analytical and critical thinking, social skills, and human values, thus preparing them for society.
Rapid advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) have created opportunities not only for personalized and immersive experiences but also opportunities for ad hoc learning by engaging with cutting-edge technology continually, extending classroom borders, from engaging in real-time conversations with large language models (LLMs) to creating expressive artifacts such as digital images with generative AI or physically interacting with the environment for a more embodied learning.
As a result, we now need new approaches and measurements to harness this potential and ensure that we can safely and responsibly cope with a world in transition. It is now evident that in order to move forward in terms of AIED practice, we need to consider AI Literacy and AI policy. Furthermore, in the past new technological advancements typically led to broadening social gaps. We envision that the triad of AIED, AI Literacy, and Fair, and Ethical AI will play a fundamental role in this world in transition and be the drivers for shaping meaningful changes in pedagogical practice, educational policies, and regulations.
This year’s theme for AIED is "AIED for a World in Transition". The conference aims to explore how AI can be used to enhance the learning experiences of students and teachers alike when disruptive technologies are turning education upside down. The conference seeks to stimulate discussion of how AI can shape education for all sectors, how to advance the science and engineering of AI-assisted learning systems, and how to promote broad adoption. Engaging with the various stakeholders – researchers, educational practitioners, businesses, policy makers, as well as teachers and students – the conference will set a wider agenda on how novel research ideas can meet practical needs to build effective intelligent human-technology ecosystems that support learning in new, complex, and unknown scenarios.
AIED 2024 will be the 25th edition of the International AIED Society. The AIED Society organises the AIED conference and is aimed at advancing science and engineering of intelligent human-technology ecosystems that support learning. The conference will be the latest of a longstanding series of international conferences, known for high quality and innovative research on AI-assisted systems and cognitive science approaches for educational computing applications. AIED is ranked A in CORE (top 16% of all 783 ranked venues), the well-known ranking of computer science conferences.
