GIFTSym12 CALL FOR PAPERS

Added by Sinatra, Anne 4 months ago

GIFTSYM12 CALL FOR PAPERS ANNOUNCEMENT!

GIFTSym12 is planned to be held in-person the week of May 6th, 2024, and will be two days long. The dates are currently in the confirmation process, but are anticipated to be either Tuesday, May 7th and Wednesday, May 8th, 2024 OR Wednesday, May 8th and Thursday, May 9th, 2024 in Orlando, FL. Another announcement will be posted once dates are confirmed.

All presentations are planned to be presented in-person (special circumstances can be considered if a presentation needs to be conducted virtually). However, we are planning to have a hybrid option for non-presenting attendees who wish to participate virtually. Non-presenters are of course, also welcome to attend in-person.

GIFTSym12 is the twelfth annual Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) User Symposium! GIFTSym12 invites GIFT designers, developers and practitioners to submit technical papers about their ideas, experiences, and lessons-learned in using GIFT to author and evaluate Adaptive Instructional Systems (AISs). GIFT is an open-source, empirically-based, service-oriented framework of tools, methods and standards to make it easier to author computer-based tutoring systems (CBTSs), deliver and manage instruction, and assess the effect of adaptive instruction, CBTSs, components and methodologies. GIFT is being developed under the Adaptive Tutoring Research Science & Technology project at the Learning in Intelligent Tutoring Environments (LITE) Laboratory, part of the US Army Combat Capability Development Command – Soldier Center’s Simulation and Training Technology Center (DEVCOM-SC STTC).

Please submit your abstract using the EasyChair GIFTSym12 submission site at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=giftsym12

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted elsewhere (such as to a journal or a conference), or previously published. All figures, tables, and images must be original and not previously published.

The following paper categories are welcome:

Full papers (5-10 pages using template) describing design, application, and/or science-based potential enhancements to GIFT.
Short papers (3-4 pages using template) describing standards opportunities for AISs. This will form the basis for a potential separate session on the applicability of standards for AIS development.
Demonstration (3-4 pages using template) showcasing mature use cases that highlight advancements in GIFT’s utility across performance assessments, pedagogical reasoning and coaching, data visualization, adaptive and intelligent training, and after action reviews.

Important Dates

Abstracts are required to be extended abstracts (minimum 800 words) covering the focus of your paper, results/conclusions and recommendations. Review for acceptance will be based on the extended abstracts. There will be a rolling review process and acceptance notification. Presentations will need to be received prior to the event to help facilitate the hybrid portion.

Abstract Submission Deadline – 25 March 2024
Anticipated Acceptance Notification Date – 5 April 2024
Camera-Ready Paper Submission Deadline - 26 April 2024
Presentation Submission Deadline – 1 May 2024
GIFTSym12 – 2 days in the week of May 6th, 2024 (either Tues May 7th & Wed May 8th, OR Wed May 8th & Thurs, May 9th). The confirmation of the dates will occur shortly.

Venue

We are excited to announce that GIFTSym12 will be held in-person this year! The event will be held in Orlando, Florida. We ask that all presenters plan to attend and present in-person, as presentations are planned to be given in-person only (special circumstances can be considered if a presentation needs to be conducted virtually). We are planning to have a hybrid option for non-presenting attendees who wish to participate virtually. Non-presenters are of course, also welcome to attend in-person.

GIFTSym12 participation and attendance does not have an associated fee, but we do ask that you RSVP online prior to the event so that we know the number of people attending. More details will be shared as GIFTSym12 approaches.

As GIFTSym12 includes in-person events, by attending GIFTSym12 in-person, you voluntarily assume all risks related to possible exposure to COVID-19.
