In conjunction with AIED 2001 a special "Short Papers" track is being organized for "Young Researchers" (Ph.D. students who have not received their Ph.D. by the date of the conference).

Our goals are to attract as many young researchers as possible to be active participants in the conference, and to link young researchers with their senior colleagues. In particular we want to encourage presentations of work-in-progress. For those who are interested we will provide an e-mail link to a senior researcher in order to assist in the preparation of the short paper/presentation.

Those interested in participating in this program should prepare a short abstract (less than two pages). These abstracts will be refereed and published in the conference proceedings.

Separate sessions will be scheduled for these presentations. Each presenter will be allowed 15 minutes; 10 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for discussion. All presentations must be in English.

A reduced registration fee is offered to participants in these sessions upon request and with appropriate credentials.
