Call for Industry and Innovation Track Papers

Connecting Research And Educational Practice

Intelligent, adaptive learning technologies that implement recent advances from AI are becoming more widespread in real-world use. However, there are still challenges involving the development, evaluation, and adoption of AIED innovations that support inclusive and equitable education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.

The Industry and Innovation Track is intended to support connections between industry (both for-profit and nonprofit) and the research community and to share experiences about how to bridge the gap between research and innovation in the field of AI and education.

We welcome submissions discussing educational technologies at different stages of development, from prototypes being tested in academia or industry to deployed applications. Submissions should address the theme of the conference theme, “AI in Education for Sustainable Society.”

For industry participants, this is an opportunity to learn about some of the most promising new developments in AIED, to present their findings, to connect with academic and industry partners and to recruit some of the most competent and creative talents in the field. For those in the research community, this is a chance to present their solutions/results and build connections that may result in the commercialization and wide distribution of new technologies. This track is a good opportunity for industry and community members to provide and receive feedback on their projects and approaches.

In addition, we are organizing a panel with several invited AIED speakers from industry and academia who will discuss issues relevant to the goals of the Industry and Innovations track and the conference.

Evaluation Criteria

All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee to meet rigorous academic standards of publication. The review process will be double-blind, meaning that both the authors and reviewers will remain anonymous. To this end, authors should: (a) eliminate all information that could lead to their identification (names, contact information, affiliations, patents, names of approaches, frameworks, projects and/or systems); (b) cite own prior work (if needed) in the third person; and (c) eliminate acknowledgments and references to funding sources. Papers will be reviewed for relevance, novelty, technical soundness, significance and clarity of presentation. It is important to note that the work presented should not have been published previously or be under consideration in other conferences of journals. Any paper caught in double submission will be rejected without review.

Papers will be evaluated using the following criteria: appropriateness to the goals of the Industry and Innovation track, innovation, technical quality, and potential impact. Submissions are expected to address the conference theme, “AI in Education for Sustainable Society.”

Format and Content

Accepted papers will be presented as presentations in the industry and innovation track. We strongly recommend the authors to include a section about how and/or if they address the gap between research and practical innovation.

Submission Instructions

All submissions must be in Springer format. Papers that do not use the required format may be rejected without review. Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. Submissions are handled via EasyChair:
