Over twenty years have passed since the first efforts to apply
artificial intelligence to training and tutoring began to bear
fruit.  This conference will address the current state-of-the-art
in intelligent computer-aided training and tutoring systems.  
Workers from industry, government, and academia will describe the
maturation of this technology from prototypes to fielded,
operational systems.  Plenary sessions featuring invited speakers
will be interspersed with contributed paper sessions (in poster
format) that will permit those attending to explore the diversity
that now characterizes this field of endeavor.  A large exhibit
area will feature the latest in commercially-available systems as
well as demonstrations from leading laboratories.

1. International Conference on Intelligent Tutoring Systems

                    Updated Call for Papers


                        1-3  JUNE  1988
                        MONTREAL, CANADA

Conference Objectives: ITS 88 will be a forum for presenting new
results in research, development, and applications of intelligent
tutoring systems.  The aims of the conference are to bring together
specialists in the field of Artificial Intelligence and Education, to
share state of the art information among the attendees and to outline
future developments of ITS and their applications.

Topics of interest: The ITS 88 Conference will accept scientific and
techincal papers on all areas of ITS development, but will primarily
focus on the following areas:

  Learning environments
  Methodologies and architectures for educational systems
  AI programming environments for educational use
  Student modelling and cognitive diagnosis
  Curriculum and knowledge representation
  Evaluation of tutoring systems
  Theoretical foundations of ITS
  Knowledge acquisition in ITS
  Design issues in building ITS
  Practical uses of ITS
  Empirical aspects of ITS

Program Committee Chairs are Prof. Gregor Bochmann of the University
of Montreal and Dr. Marlene Jones of the Alberta Research Council.
