Call for Papers

The 9th International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems provides a leading international forum for the dissemination of original results in the design, implementation, and evaluation of intelligent tutoring systems and related areas. The conference will draw researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines ranging from artificial intelligence and cognitive sciences to pedagogy and educational psychology.

The conference explores the real world impact of intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) on an increasingly global scale. Improved authoring tools and learning object standards enable fielding systems and curricula in real world settings on an unprecedented scale. Researchers deploy ITSs in ever larger studies, and increasingly use data from real students, tasks, and settings to guide new research. With high volumes of student interaction data, data mining and machine learning, tutoring systems can learn from experience and improve their teaching performance. Increasing number of realistic evaluation studies also broaden researchers’ knowledge about the educational contexts for which ITSs are best suited. At the same time, researchers explore how to expand and improve student-tutor communication, for example, how to achieve more flexible and responsive discourse with students, help students integrate Web resources into learning, use mobile technologies and games to enhance student motivation and learning, and address multicultural perspectives.

ITS 2008 will be supported by a strong international program committee that will ensure full and effective refereeing of all submitted papers.
