includes 45 full papers presented in three parallel streams, 29 posters and
short papers, five workshops/tutorials, four panels, and six invited
speakers. A separate two-day workshop on computers in science education
sponsored by APICS precedes the conference, and a social program complements
the technical presentations.

Invited speakers include Dr. H. Maurer from Austria, the creator of the
Hyper-G hypermedia project; Dr. L. Moore from the University of North
Carolina, the Co-Director of the acclaimed CALC three-semester calculus
program; Dr. J. Murray, Director of the MIT Athena language learning project;
Dr. M. Petruk, the Executive Director of the Apple Canada Foundation and a

known for his work on hypertext and user interface design; and Dr. B. Woolf,
a leading expert on AI applications in education from the University of

Full papers will be presented in 15 sessions covering areas such as
authoring systems, intelligent and knowledge based systems, computer assisted
language learning, applications, computers in distance education, and others.
An open session on work in progress will also be included.

Panels include a manufacturers' panel with anticipated participation of
representatives from Apple, Commodore, DEC, IBM, Microsoft, NeXT Computers,
and SUN; and panels on artificial intelligence in education, authoring
environments, computer assisted language learning, and computers in
distance education.
