PEG-97 in Bulgaria
One of the most attractive conferences on advanced computer technologies in education in 1997. PEG-97 continues the line of well-known PEG conferences held previously in Uppsala (Sweden), Rapallo (Italy), and Edinburgh (Scotland). At the same time, it continues the line of East-West Conferences on Computers in Education held previously in Moscow (Russia), Kiev (Ukraine), and Yalta (Ukraine) and used to serve as major meeting point for scientists from Western and East European research communities

Research Interests


Member of program committee or organizing committe of a number of international conferences including: Editorial or reviewing board member for several journals including: Executive Committee Member of Artificial Intelligence in Education Society, member of ACM, European Association for Cognitive Ergonomics, The Psychology of Programming Interst Group and Russian Association for Artificial Intelligence
