GIFTSym10 is the tenth annual Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) Users Symposium. GIFTSym10 will be held VIRTUALLY on May 24th and 25th, 2022. GIFTSym10 invites GIFT designers, developers and practitioners to submit technical papers about their ideas, experiences, and lessons-learned in using GIFT to author and evaluate Adaptive Instructional Systems (AISs).

GIFT is an open source, empirically-based, service-oriented framework of tools, methods and standards to make it easier to author computer-based tutoring systems (CBTS), deliver and manage instruction, and assess the effect of adaptive instruction, CBTS, components and methodologies. GIFT is being developed under the Adaptive Tutoring Research Science & Technology project at the Learning in Intelligent Tutoring Environments (LITE) Laboratory, part of the US Army Combat Capability Development Command – Soldier Center’s Simulation and Training Technology Center (DEVCOM-SC STTC).

Submission Guidelines
All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

•Full papers (5-10 pages using template) describing design, application, and/or science-based potential enhancements to GIFT.
•Short papers (3-4 pages using template) describing standards opportunities for AISs. This will form the basis for a potential separate session on the applicability of standards for AIS development.
•Demonstration (3-4 pages using template) showcasing mature use cases that highlight advancements in GIFT’s utility across performance assessments, pedagogical reasoning and coaching, data visualization, adaptive and intelligent training, and after action reviews.

Submission Schedule
Abstracts are required to be extended abstracts (minimum 800 words) covering the focus of your paper, results/conclusions and recommendations. Review for acceptance will be based on the extended abstracts.
