International Workshop on
Cognitive Aspects in Intelligent and Adaptive Web-based Educational Systems (CIAWES 2008)

in conjunction with International Conference on Computers in Education
October 27-31, 2008
Taipei, Taiwan



Typically used web-based educational systems such as learning management systems provide a variety of features to support teachers and course developers to create and manage their online courses. However, at current stage, such environments provide very little, or in most cases, neither intelligent support nor adaptivity at all. The need for smart learning environments arise that offer personal services in the whole cycle of education, from counselling, to academic advising, to program planning, to collaborative learning, to tutoring, and to testing.

Considering cognitive aspects such as learning styles and cognitive traits in web-based educational systems has become a promising area with high potential to support students in learning. By providing students with environments that incorporate their cognitive abilities and their individual preferences about how they like to learn, learning materials and courses can be adapted and more accurate intelligent support can be provided, aiming at making learning easier for learners. 

This workshop deals with innovative research in the area of intelligent and adaptive web-based educational systems, focussing on the incorporation of cognitive aspects. The workshop aims at providing a forum for presenting and discussing high-quality research about how cognitive aspects can be considered in intelligent and adaptive web-based educational systems, including the detection of cognitive aspects, the development of systems that provide adaptive and intelligent support based on cognitive aspects as well as analyses about the effectiveness of considering cognitive aspects in technology enhanced learning.

The overall goal of the workshop is to bring people from the same area together and encourage discussion about how to support learners and educators, increase learning opportunities, and improve the efficiency and quality of service by considering cognitive aspects.


Topics of interest for the workshop include cognitive aspects related to (but are not limited to):
	Adaptive collaboration support
	Adaptive curriculum sequencing
	Adaptive presentation and navigation support
	Adaptive testing
	Agent technology 
	Architectures and frameworks of AIED systems
	Authoring tools for developing AIED systems
	Cognition and collaborative learning
	Cognitive aspects in mobile learning
	Data mining, log mining, and web mining for education intelligence
	Educational robots and the consideration of cognition
	Empirical studies of adaptive and intelligent systems
	E-tutor, E-secretary, E-advisor, E-counsellor 
	Game-based leanring and cognition
	Human-Computer Interaction
	Integration and interoperability issues
	Instructional design and pedagogy
	Intelligent and adaptive assessment
	Language learning and the consideration of cognition
	Problem solving methods and problem-based learning
	Semantic web and education
	Student modelling
	Web 2.0 and social computing for learning

Authors are invited to submit papers in the following categories:
	Full papers (8 pages)
	Short papers (4 pages)
The page length includes figures, tables, references, and so on.
The format of workshop papers should follow the format of conference papers at ICCE. Please use the guidelines at:

Please submit your paper via email to Sabine Graf at and copy to Kinshuk as doc- or rtf-file.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by 2-3 reviewers from the program committee. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of ICCE (with ISBN number).

Selected papers will be invited for publication in a special issue of a journal.


The workshop is held in conjunction with ICCE. All participants of the workshop are required to register for the main conference, but there will be no additional workshop fee.
