Intelligent, adaptive learning technologies that implement recent advances from AI and Cognitive and Learning Sciences are becoming more widespread in real-world use. These educational technologies may be at different stages of development from prototypes being tested in academia or industry to deployed applications. The Industry and Innovation Track is intended to support connections between industry (both for-profit and non-profit) and the research community.

For industry participants, this is an opportunity to learn about some of the most promising new developments in educational technology, to present their findings, to connect with academic partners and to recruit some of the most talented and creative workers in the field.

For those in the research community, this is a chance to present their solutions/results and make connections that may result in the commercialization and wide distribution of new technologies.

Papers will be presented as short presentations in the track session and as posters/interactive events in the main session.

Evaluation Criteria

Papers will be reviewed by members of the Conference Program Committee. Criteria for selection include: appropriateness to the goals of the Industry and Innovation track, innovation, and potential impact.

Form and Content

Accepted papers will be presented as short presentations in the industry and innovation track session and as posters/interactive events.  In addition, some presenters will be invited to join an industry and innovation panel ‘AIED impact in the real world: transitions from research to innovation.’  The arrangements about the panel will be provided closer to the conference dates.
