Innovation and the effective use of Artificial Intelligence technologies are recognized as important factors for human and business agility. Education area is not an exception. Therefore, it is relevant to clarify the relationship between education and Artificial Intelligence.

The chance of using known Artificial Intelligence technologies, or combined adaptations of them, to aid the ideas production, help produce pedagogical combinations, get unexpected, original, useful and satisfying responses, addressed to a school context, and thus lead to innovation in Education and the way how they are used, is challenging.

However, despite the substantial progress in recent years, the conviction that the exploitation of this field is still in an early stage remains.  Also, there is not a dedicated conference or meeting on the subject and related areas. Therefore, it has relevance to create dedicated a space for exchanging experience and to discuss the advances and research outcomes in this field.

This workshop invites contributions that seek to advance the development of new AI systems in an educational context, as well as methods and tools for more efficient and automated educational processes.

The workshop will be publicized through direct e-mail to the artificial intelligence and education research communities, in WikiCFP and Easychair Smart CFP platform and through the NOVA IMS of Universidade Nova de Lisboa website.
