PEG was established in 1985. It has developed into an informal friendly extended family that comes together regularly to exchange ideas and information. PEG 2001 will be the tenth international conference.

PEG is a loose association of those interested in the relationship between intelligent computer and communications technology and teaching and learning. For over a decade the PEG international conferences have explored ideas at the cutting edge of developments in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Epistemology, Psychology and Education in relation to the interaction between the teacher, the learner, the curriculum and the technology. The origins of PEG was the link between Logic Programming and Education, but subsequently the field has expanded to encompass all elements of intelligent computer and communications technology that involve teachers and students of all ages.
