AIED 2018 invites tutorials and workshops on recent trends emerging from AI and cognitive science approaches for educational computing applications. The theme of this year’s conference is “Bridging the Behavioral and the Computational: Deep Learning in Humans and Machines”.

Tutorials may be on the use of tools, techniques and topics of broad interest to the AIED community. Tutorials are expected to be hands-on and participative. They may be for half-day or full-day.

Workshops may be on topics of special interest or emerging themes. Workshops are expected to be interactive for the audience, not just mini-conference style paper presentations. Workshop proposers are encouraged to consider discussion oriented formats, such as a poster session, or a panel discussion, or a debate with each paper presenting a different aspect of the issue.

Proposals will undergo peer review for relevance to the AIED community and potential for audience participation. Accepted proposals will be published in the conference proceedings.
