This informal presentation will provide a peek into the future of Alice. A demo of the current progress with Alice 3 will be given by Dennis Cosgrove, the Alice team’s Project Scientist. In addition, a quick look will be given to an update for Alice 2 (Alice 2.2) and plans for collaborative work with Caitlin Kelleher on Looking Glass, successor to Storytelling Alice. Some of the human-computer interaction features of the new versions of Alice will be related to goals of the project.
