5th Annual GIFT Users Symposium (GIFTSym5) Call for Papers

Added by Sottilare, Robert over 2 years ago

GIFTSym5 will be conducted 10-11 May 2017 in Orlando, Florida at the University of Central Florida Partnership III Building (3039 Technology Parkway, Room 321 A&B, Orlando, FL 32826).

Please make plans to write a paper to share your experiences with GIFT and present it in Orlando.

Scope and Topics of Interest:
The aim of this symposium is to bring together members of the GIFT User community for an in-depth exploration of tools, methods, and standards for Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) as part of the research and development of the Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) sponsored by the US Army Research Laboratory. GIFT is a free, modular, service-oriented architecture whose goal is to make automated authoring, automated instruction, and effect analysis easy and cost-effective. GIFT has three primary objectives:

(1) reduce the skill and time needed to author ITSs
(2) provide an automated instructional capability based upon best tutoring principles, strategies, and tactics for use in ITSs;
(3) enable experimentation to evaluate the effectiveness and impact of ITS components, tools, and methods.

The program committee invites GIFT practitioners and ITS scientists to submit papers highlighting their use of GIFT and recommendations for design enhancements in the following areas: authoring, learner and team modeling, instructional management, and evaluation of learning, retention and transfer effects. Additional topics of interest include: team tutoring strategies, multi-agent architectures for GIFT, and competency modeling/ long term learner modeling.
