The Tenth Symposium on Educational Advances in Artificial Intelligence (EAAI-19) will be held February 8-9, 2020 in New York, NY USA. The symposium is collocated with AAAI-20.
EAAI-20 provides a venue for researchers and educators to discuss pedagogical issues and share resources related to teaching and using AI in education across a variety of curricular levels (K-12 through postgraduate training), with an emphasis on undergraduate and graduate teaching and learning. The symposium seeks contributions showing how to more effectively teach AI, as well as how themes from AI may be used to enhance education more broadly (for example, in introductory computing courses or as a means for teaching computational thinking). We encourage the sharing of innovative educational approaches that convey or leverage AI and its many subfields, including robotics, machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and others.
EAAI-20 is expected to include invited talks (including a talk of the recipient of the AAAI/EAAI Outstanding AI Educator Award 2020); Model AI Assignments; special tracks on AI for Education, Diversity and Inclusion in AI Education, Design the EAAI-22 Undergraduate Research Challenge; and other exciting activities.
Call for Participation
EAAI-20 provides several submission types:
- Full-length papers (8 pages, including references)
- Extended abstract/poster contributions (2 pages, including references)
All submissions should be anonymous for double-blind review.

The AAAI/EAAI Outstanding Educator award is presented annually to a person (or group of people) who has made major contributions to AI education that provide long-lasting benefits to the AI community. Examples include innovating teaching methods, providing service to the AI education community, generating pedagogical resources, designing curricula, and educating students outside of higher education venues (or the general public) about AI.
The award consists of a certificate, a $1,000 honorarium, complimentary one-year AAAI membership (new or renewal), and free conference registration to the upcoming EAAI conference and co-located AAAI conference where the award will be conferred. Additional information and nomination instructions are available at http://www.aaai.org/Awards/eaai-award.php, or by writing to email@example.com.
