Interactive Events Chairs

Erin Walker,  Arizona State University.

The Interactive Events track will showcase interactive demonstrations of systems that have implications for the adaptive support of learning. These systems can run in various modalities, such as a stand-alone app, on the web, on a mobile device, or in virtual reality. The track welcomes multiple types of learning and educational systems that connect to this year’s conference theme, “Bridging the Behavioral and the Computational: Deep Learning in Humans and Machines.” These systems may include adaptive educational environments, educational games, intelligent tutoring systems, agent-based learning environments, learning management systems, visualizations, and other novel interactive tools.

As a participant in an Interactive Events session, you will have a chance to engage conference attendees at a personal level by letting them experience your vision for the future of AIED.  We encourage authors submitting papers or posters to the main conference to also propose demoing their system in this track. In this way, attendees can experience your work interactively in addition to your formal presentation.

Submissions will undergo peer review for relevance to the AIED community and as an interactive event.

Submission Instructions

Please use the conference submission site and select the Interactive Events track:

A submission to the Interactive Events track requires an abstract and a video, with the following guidelines:

  • A 350 word abstract summarizing the system to be demoed, including the system’s purpose and an explanation of its significance.
  • A link to a video (preferably posted on YouTube). Videos should be a maximum of 4 minutes long and showcase both the functionality and significance of your system.

Abstracts and videos will be showcased online.

Evaluation Criteria

An Interactive Event program committee will be set up with members from the Conference Program Committee. The Interactive Event Chairs (in consultation with this Committee) will select proposals based upon expected interest to AIED attendees, interactivity, scientific value, originality, innovation and potential logistic constraints. Commercial products are eligible, but sales and marketing activities are not appropriate.

Form and Content

Depending on the number of accepted submissions, the Interactive Events will run in one or more sessions to provide the opportunity for hands-on interaction. Active participation of AIED participants in the Interactive Event session(s) will be fostered. Additional details will be provided when closer to the conference dates.


The AIED conference will provide tables, chairs, power and wireless Internet connection. Presenters should provide the rest, including computers and other devices with necessary software installed.
