The 2019 conference will feature an over-arching theme of “Artificial Intelligence in Learning”. From intelligent tutoring systems, “smart” content delivery systems, adaptive assessment systems, to the creation of a “virtual reality” facilitator A.I. has the potential to reshape the education landscape like no other technology has done before. Using the theme as a guideline, presenters should frame their presentations to address or reinforce the conference theme. While not all submitted sessions will directly or indirectly address the conference theme, a sufficient number of sessions will be chosen during the selection process that will directly address the conference theme.
