Avatar?id=10&size=24x24 Call for Papers - AIS Workshop at SRI, Menlo Park, CA

Added by Sottilare, Robert 2 months ago

Standards for Adaptive Instructional Systems (AIS2)
Stanford Research Institute
Menlo Park, CA, United States, October 30-31, 2018

Conference website http://sites.ieee.org/sagroups-2247-1/
Submission link https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ais2

Abstract registration deadline (extended abstract - 800 words) September 14, 2018
Abstract acceptance notification September 21, 2018
Paper submission deadline October 12, 2018
Paper acceptance notification October 19, 2018

The second Standards for Adaptive Instructional Systems (AIS2) Workshop will be held 30-31 October in Menlo Park, California at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI). This workshop will be composed of three 1/2 day sessions and supports the presentation and discussion of potential standards within a class of technologies known as adaptive instructional systems. Adaptive systems provide tailored instruction based on individual and group learning needs and preferences. We are seeking papers and presentations to identify problems and potential solutions leading to standardization in the development, deployment, and evaluation processes of adaptive instructional systems. This workshop is a step in developing IEEE standards and is being organized under the auspices of the IEEE Learning Technologies Standards Committee and its supporting Adaptive Instructional Systems (AIS) Working Group (Project 2247).

Submission Guidelines
All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Papers should be limited to 5 pages. We are targeting acceptance of approximately 18-20 papers and presentations should be limited to 15 minutes with an additional 15 minutes allocated for discussion.

The following paper categories are welcome:

  • Recommended standard definitions for Adaptive Instructional Systems (AISs) and their functional components
  • Recommended standard methodologies for adapting instruction for individual learners and teams
  • Recommended interface specifications to link AISs with external systems (e.g., learning management systems and training systems)
List of Topics
  • Taxonomies for AISs
  • Conceptual Models for AISs
  • Interface Specifications for AISs

All questions about submissions should be emailed to Robert Sottilare.

Avatar?id=10&size=24x24 Status of Working Group Positions

Added by Sottilare, Robert 3 months ago

Hi to all members of the AIS standards working group...

I am pleased to announce that Jody Cockroft, University of Memphis, will be serving as our working group Treasurer. Drew Hampton was announced last week at our WG Secretary. I previously appointed Ben Goldberg as our recruiting coordinator, Keith Brawner as our liaison to IEEE Project 9274 (xAPI Standards), and Paula Durlach as our liaision to ICICLE. The team is starting to fill out.

I am still looking to appoint a Vice-Chair... ideally, I would like this person to be an industry representative in a country outside of the US to provide a more balanced point of view for our working group.

The AIS conference will serve as the venue for one of two annual face-to-face meetings. I am in the midst of discussions with candidates to be Vice-Chair for the AIS Conference, an HCI International affiliated conference. This position will be announced in the next couple of weeks.

Several people have volunteered to chair sessions at the AIS conference. Thanks to: Ben Bell, Anne Sinatra, Jeanine DeFalco, Xiangen Hu, Robby Robson, and Paolo Proetti. We would like to fill 6-10 additional sessions. So if you have interest in supporting the AIS conference, please email me at .

Regards,

Bob

Avatar?id=10&size=24x24 Call for Point Papers - AIS Conceptual Model

Added by Sottilare, Robert 4 months ago

We would like to hear from you...

Please consider developing a short (1 page) point paper on an AIS Conceptual Model for discussion at our next telecon.

Any format is fine... but please address the following points in your short paper:

1. What you are proposing
2. Why it is important to the development of an AIS conceptual model
3. How what you are proposing should reduce ambiguity in the AIS product space

Please send these to Bob Sottilare () no later than 24 July.

I have already added one point paper for our debate at the next telecon... I will add more as you send them... look under the documents tab or the AIS conceptual model under the forum tab if you would like to comment.
