Papers are being solicited for a special track on AI Education at the 22nd
International FLAIRS Conference (FLAIRS-2009). The FLAIRS Special Track on
AI Education is intended to provide a setting in which educators and
researchers from all areas of AI can come together to share ideas and
approaches for teaching AI at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

We are especially interested in submissions that describe innovative
curricular materials, teaching methods, pedagogical experiences, or ways
to promote student interest in AI and the participation of
underrepresented groups.  We welcome submissions on all aspects of AI
pedagogy, including, but not limited to:

- Model assignments, course syllabi, software, or other curricular resources
- Implementation of the Computing Curricula 2001 Intelligent Systems area
- AI classroom techniques or innovations for undergraduate and/or graduate
- Intelligent applications for instruction of AI and assessment of such
- The use of robots or other hands-on equipment for teaching AI
- Strategies for incorporating AI research into AI courses
- Strategies for encouraging wider student interest and participation in AI
- Descriptions or case studies of successful class projects or other
pedagogical experiences

Note: There is a separate special track for Intelligent Tutoring Systems.


Interested authors must submit completed manuscripts for double-blind
review by November 23, 2008. Submission guidelines can be obtained by
referring to the conference website (http://www.flairs-22.info/). Papers
will be refereed and those accepted for presentation will appear in the
conference proceedings which will be published by AAAI Press. Authors may
be invited to submit a revised copy of their paper to a special issue of
the International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools (IJAIT). 
Questions regarding the track should be addressed to Todd Neller
