CATS 2013 - 4th International Workshop on Culturally-Aware Tutoring Systems

Memphis, USA
- Memphis

Event Description

CATS2013 is a follow-up to the three previously successful CATS workshop editions organized in conjunction with ITS2008, AIED2009, and ITS2010. It similarly proposes to discuss the place of culture in the AIED research field. Considering culture in AIED research is important because culture is known to have a strong impact on many cognitive and affective processes including those related to learning. Furthermore, people with different cultural backgrounds develop alternative interpretations and strategies, and do not similarly appraise their environment, and this naturally reflects in their interactions with AIED systems.
