Meeting Description:

ECAI 2006 Workshop on Language-enabled Educational Technology
A workshop on integrating natural language processing with intelligent tutoring

August 28th, 2006   Riva del Garda, Italy


Intelligent computer-based educational technology offers the possibility for
large numbers of students to receive individualized instruction in school and
university education as well as on-the-job training. Incorporating language
technology in educational applications offers the promise of a more natural
interaction with the learner, which many researchers believe will lead to higher
levels of motivation and, ultimately, more effective learning experiences.

Although there are conferences devoted to intelligent educational technology and
natural language processing individually, no major European conference has
brought these strands of research together explicitly, and it is difficult to
gather a critical mass of researchers with expertise in the range of topics
needed to address the research questions posed in this area . The purpose of
this workshop is to bring researchers working on intelligent learning
environments together with researchers working in natural language processing to
build the community and foster new research in the area.

We invite researchers developing learning environments who would like to explore
adding language capability to them, researchers in natural language processing
who are or would like to apply their theories or technology to educational
applications, and researchers developing ontologies, reasoning systems, or
knowledge acquisition platforms that could be exploited by intelligent,
individualized instructional systems.

Topics of interest for the workshop include, but are not strictly limited to:

  * Interpretation of students' natural language input
  * Generation of individualized natural language feedback
  * Representation and reasoning to support NL-enabled learning systems
  * Integrating natural language into existing educational applications
  * Detecting affect in student utterances or generating affective
  * Integration of language with other modalities (e.g., pointing) in
    educational contexts
  * Natural language interaction with open/inspectable learner models
  * Authoring tools for intelligent language enabled learning sysems
  * Evaluating the impact of natural language capabilities in
    educational applications 

Organizing committee:

    * Vincent Aleven, Carnegie Mellon University
    * Elisabeth Andre, University of Augsburg
    * Paul Brna, University of Glasgow
    * Charles Callaway, University of Edinburgh
    * Justine Cassell, Northwestern University
    * Barbara Di Eugenio, University of Illinois - Chicago
