Call for WideAIED Papers

Introduction

This year's conference includes again the WideAIED paper track, where we intend to discuss opportunities and challenges of AI in education, with a global perspective and with contributions coming also from areas of the world that are currently under-represented in AIED. The contributions to the WideAIED track will be expected to be also on crucial challenges such as balancing surveillance and care, addressing technology accessibility, and reevaluating pedagogical approaches by considering disparities in AI progress across regions. Join us in exploring solutions that prioritize the human touch, consider contextual nuances, and advocate for the development of AI models deemed to contextualize their behavior to different specific social and/or technological environments.

Submission Instructions

System. Please note that the submissions must be written in English. Papers should be submitted electronically, as a PDF file, through the AIED 2024 EasyChair conference system (https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=aied2024), selecting the “WideAIED Papers” track. 


Types. We encourage two types of submissions (reviewers will comment on whether the size is appropriate for each contribution): 

- Full papers (between 12 pages including references; for a long oral presentation). 

- Short papers (between 6 pages including references; for a short oral presentation). 


Format. 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 must follow Springer policies on publication (including policies on using AI during authoring). 

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The AIED Society values diversity, equity, and inclusion (and related principles under this broad umbrella) as essential and fundamental values for the AIED community to uphold. Thus, in AIED 2024, we incentivize authors to carefully consider diversity, equity, and inclusion when reporting on your work. 

When preparing your paper, please consider the following: 


Please consider the following criteria when reporting samples: 

Review Process

Process. All submissions will be reviewed by three members of the program committee or other ad-hoc reviewers, followed by a second round of review conducted by a senior member of the program committee.


Anonymity. The process will be double-blind, i.e., both authors and reviewers will remain anonymous, to meet rigorous academic standards of publication. Hence, authors should eliminate all information that could lead to their identification, cite their own prior work (if needed) in third person, and remove acknowledgments and references to funding sources. 


Ethics. Authors should demonstrate awareness of how ethical issues (including but not limited to equity, inclusion, accessibility) impact the content of their paper, also including if available data, methods, tools, approaches, products, and findings.

Registration and Participation

Each accepted paper within the WideAIED track must be accompanied by a unique author registration (i.e., one registration per paper), completed by the early registration date cut-off. Please note that presenters of papers accepted to the WideAIED track are expected to be on-site to give their presentations and interact with the audience, to have the paper included in the proceedings. An online streaming option will be set-up for remote observers. 


Accepted papers in the WideAIED track will be published in the second volume of the AIED 2024 proceedings included in Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS). Scholarships are available for researchers who lack funding to present at the conference, see website for more information.
