AIED 2016 : Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Educational Applications (PRICAI 2016 Workshop)
Call For Papers
Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Educational Applications
August 22-26, 2016,
Artificial Intelligence plays a crucial role in Education. We are interested in research and development of interactive and adaptive learning environments for learners of all ages, across all domains. The workshop provides opportunities for the cross-fertilization of approaches, techniques and ideas from the many fields that comprise AIED, including computer science, cognitive and learning sciences, education, game design, psychology, sociology, linguistics, as well as many domain-specific areas. Possible topics that could be addressed that are not limited to:
Modelling and Representation: Models of learners, facilitators, tasks and problem-solving processes; Models of groups and communities for learning; Modelling motivation, metacognition, and affective aspects of learning; Ontological modelling; Handling uncertainty and multiple perspectives; Representing and analysing discourse during learning
Models of Teaching and Learning: Intelligent tutoring and scaffolding; Motivational diagnosis and feedback; Interactive pedagogical agents and learning companions; Agents that promote metacognition, motivation and affect; Adaptive question-answering
Intelligent Technologies: Natural language processing; Data mining and machine learning; Knowledge representation and reasoning; Semantic web technologies and standards; Simulation-based learning; Multi-agent architectures
Learning Contexts and Informal Learning: Educational games; Collaborative and group learning; Social networks; Inquiry learning; Social dimensions of learning; Communities of practice; Ubiquitous learning environments; Learning grid; Lifelong, museum, out-of-school, and workplace learning
Innovative and Commercial Applications: Domain-specific learning applications (e.g. language, mathematics, science, medicine, military, industry); Scaling up and large-scale deployment of AIED systems;
Evaluation: Human-computer interaction; Evaluation methodologies; Studies on human learning, cognition, affect, motivation, and attitudes; Design and formative studies of AIED systems

Abstract and Paper Submission
A number of high-quality workshop papers will be selected to publish in LNCS/LNAI series. Therefore, all papers submitted to the PRICAI 2016 Workshops must be formatted in Springer's Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) camera-ready style template; see the Springer's author instructions page for details. Papers (submitted and final) cannot exceed 12 pages (excluding references). Please do not include acknowledgements in submissions due to blind review. Papers must be in trouble-free, high-resolution PDF format, using Type 1 or TrueType fonts. Please only use the author-year system for your references. Please also refer to the instructions on how to prepare your paper for blind review. Electronic abstract and paper submission through the PRICAI 2016 paper submission site is required on or (preferably) before the deadline dates listed above. We cannot accept submissions by e-mail or fax. Authors will receive confirmation of receipt of their abstracts or papers, including an ID number, shortly after submission. We will contact authors again only if problems are encountered with papers.
Blind Review Instructions
Reviewing for the PRICAI Workshop papers is blind to the identities of the authors. The first page, on which the paper body begins, should include the title and abstract, but not the acknowledgments and names or affiliations of the authors. The references should include all published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the authors, but should not include unpublished works. When referring to one's own work, use the third person, rather than the first person. For example, say "Previously, Walsh (Walsh 2013) has shown that...," rather than "In our previous work (Walsh 2013) we have shown that...." Try to avoid including any information in the body of the paper or references that would identify the authors or their institutions. Such information may be added to the final camera-ready version for publication.
Program committee members will identify papers they are qualified to review based on the information submitted electronically (the paper's title, keywords, and abstract). Their reviewing will be done blind to the identities of the authors and their institutions.
Policy Concerning Submissions to Other Conferences or Journals
PRICAI Workshop 2016 will not accept any paper that, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also required not to submit their papers elsewhere during PRICAI Workshop 2016's review period. These restrictions apply only to journals and conferences, not to workshops and similar specialized presentations with a limited audience and without archival proceedings. The restrictions also do not apply to preprints posted only on arXiv. Authors will be required to confirm that their submissions conform to these requirements at the time of submission.
Accepted papers will be allocated twelve (12) pages in the conference proceedings (with one extra page for references). Final papers found to exceed page limits and or otherwise violating the instructions to authors will not be included in the proceedings. Authors will be required to transfer copyright of their paper to Springer.
