ITS 2008 : Call for Demonstrations


Contact: its2008demo@gmail.com


**** ITS 2008 : Call for Demonstrations ****

ITS'2008 is pleased to announce the Demonstration Program and invite
submissions for demonstration of research systems and prototypes, both for
Intelligent Tutoring Systems and related tools. The purpose of this
program is to promote exchange of ideas, in a way that is not possible in
the course of a paper presentation or a poster session.

Demonstrators shall make the session a dynamic experience bringing
attendees to interact. Execution of scenarios proposed by the demonstrator
and variant of those scenarios proposed by attendees are expected to
create opportunities to :

- challenge the ideas behind the implementation ;

- assess the pro and cons of the methodology and technics used to embody
those ideas ;

- give concrete examples of ITS to newcomers in the field of ITS ;

- see live demonstration of research systems and prototypes that we often
hear  about ;

- see the stage of achievement of ideas proposed in the course of a paper
presentation or a poster session.

The selected proposals will be given the opportunity to demonstrate their
system twice : on June 24th, 2008 before the welcome cocktail and on June
25th, concurrently with the poster session. Submission of a demonstration
proposal on a particular topic does not preclude or require a separate
submission of a regular paper on that topic. The selection of demos will
be based upon a number of factors, including scientific contribution,
originality, innovation and potential logistic constraints. Commercial
products are eligible, but sales and marketing activities are not
appropriate.

*** An award will be given to the best demonstration. ***

Format and submissions requirements :
-------------------------------------

An extended abstract of up to three pages, including the title, authors,
full contact information, and technical content to be demonstrated must be
provided. A detailed description of hardware and software requirements,
such as space, site set ups, power supplies. ITS2008 will attempt to
provide necessary equipment, but demonstrators will be required to provide
their own special-purpose equipment. Please indicate if the demo requires
network access.

All proposals should be sent to : its2008demo@gmail.com
