This volume contains the proceedings for the 9th International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education (AI-ED 1999). This is one of a series of international conferences in this area and it is designed to report on state of the art research in the field of AI in Education. This field is interdisciplinary and brings together researchers from the domains of computer science, cognitive science, education, psychology, linguistics, and engineering (to name a few). Researchers will contribute manuscripts to this volume, providing opportunities for cross-fertilization of information across disciplines that will lead to advances and new applications in the field.
New computational technologies will be described that support learning, exploration, and collaboration. Technologies can support both the individual and small groups of individuals who work collaboratively to solve problems and learn new materials. New methodologies for supporting
and documenting the learning process in both these situations are being developed and are described in this volume.
