Summer Education Conferences in 2021 You Won’t Want to Miss

Conferences are a great way to meet new people, get exposed to new ideas, and experience thoughtful conversations on the latest and greatest trends and need-to-know topics in education. In fact, you may find members of Edmetum’s Research and Learning Engineering Team attending and presenting at many of these events! Here are a few conferences you won’t want to miss this summer.

Artificial Intelligence in Education
June 14 – 18, 2021; Online from Utretch (Netherlands)

AIED 2021 will be the 22nd edition of a longstanding series of international conferences, known for high quality and innovative research on intelligent systems and cognitive science approaches for educational computing applications. Mindful of the current challenges that we face, the conference theme will be: Mind the Gap: AIED for Equity and Inclusion. In this conference, we invite the AIED community to reflect on issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion in regard to the educational tools and algorithms that we build, how we assess the efficacy and impact of our applications, the theories that we build on and contribute to, and within the AIED society.

HCII Adaptive Instructional Systems Conference
July 24 – 29, 2021; Virtual

HCI International 2021, jointly with the affiliated Conferences, under the auspices of 21 distinguished international boards, held under one management and one registration, will be organized and run as a virtual conference. The goal of the Adaptive Instructional Systems (AIS) Conference, affiliated to the HCI International conference, is to understand the theory and enhance the state-of-practice for a set of technologies (tools and methods) called adaptive instructional systems. The focus of this conference on instructional tailoring of learning experiences highlights the importance of accurately modeling learners to accelerate their learning, boost the effectiveness of AIS-based experiences, and to precisely reflect their long-term competence in a variety of domains of instruction.
