Call for Workshops and Tutorials

AIED 2021 workshops/tutorials are designed to provide an opportunity for the in-depth discussion of current and emerging topics of interest to the AIED community. We encourage workshop/tutorial proposals that bring together people working on new and developing research topics that favor highly interactive discussions. Those proposing a workshop/tutorial should provide information on why the workshop/tutorial is of interest to the AIED community, and why a workshop/tutorial on this topic is beneficial. Workshops/tutorials that take into account the theme of AIED 2021 are especially encouraged: “Mind the Gap: AIED for Equity and Inclusion”.
