8th International Conference on Education Data Mining (EDM 2015)

8th International Conference on Education Data Mining (EDM 2015)
26-29 June 2015
Madrid, Spain

CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite submissions to the 8th International Conference on Education Data Mining (EDM 2015), to be held under auspices of the International Educational Data Mining Society at UNED, the National University for Distance Education in Spain.

The EDM conference is a leading international forum for high-quality research that mines large data sets in order to answer educational research questions that shed light on the learning process.

We are glad to announce three confirmed keynote speakers:
– Prof. George Siemens, Founding President of SoLAR, Society for Learning Analytics Research.
– Pekka Räsänen, Clinical neuropsychologist; Executive vice director in Niilo Mäki Institute, Finland
– Bror Saxberg, Chief Learning Officer, Kaplan, Inc.

EDM 2015 will follow the AIED 2015 (22-26 June 2015) that is also organized by UNED in Madrid, Spain. Synergies between both EDM and AIED communities will be supported.

==================================================
TOPICS OF INTEREST
==================================================

Topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:
– Closing the loop between education data research and educational outcomes
– Stealth assessment and evaluating the efficacy of curriculum and
interventions
– Deriving representations of domain knowledge from data
– Detecting and addressing students’ affective and emotional states
– Integrating data mining and pedagogical theory
– Data mining with emerging pedagogical environments such as
educational games, MOOCs, and exploratory learning
– Multi-modal learning environments and sensor analysis
– Providing feedback to teachers, students & other stakeholders
generated from EDM methods
– Papers that apply a previously used technique to a new domain, or
that reanalyze an existing data set with a new technique
– Bridging EDM and Learning analytics
– Bridging learning sciences, learning theory and EDM
– Monitoring and mining results of automated feedback and grading
– Monitoring and mining results of learning resources usage logs
– Best practices for adapting the state of the art data mining,
information retrieval, recommender systems and social network analysis
approaches to the educational domain
– Data mining in social and collaborative learning
– Generic frameworks, techniques, research methods and approaches for EDM

================================================
SUBMISSION TYPES
================================================

– (New!) JEDM Journal Track Papers: Submit your best work to the
Journal of EDM (submission is open already), get it accepted before
April 20th, 2015 and have your work presented at EDM 2015. See further
details at http://educationaldatamining.org/EDM2015/index.php?page=jedm

– Full Papers: 6-8 pages. Should describe original, substantive,
mature and unpublished work.

– Short Papers: 4 pages. Should describe original, unpublished work.
This includes early stage, less developed works in progress.

– Industry Papers: 4-6 pages. Industry papers should describe
innovative ways in which data drives system features or processes in a
commercial setting.

– Doctoral Consortium: 3 pages. Should describe the
graduate/postgraduate student¹s research topic, proposed
contributions, results so far, and aspects of the research on which
advice is sought. Should be solely authored by the student.

– Posters: 2 pages. Posters can be used both to describe original and
unpublished work in progress, as well as to share last minute breaking
results.

– Demos: 2 pages. Demos should describe educational data mining tools
and systems, or educational systems that use EDM techniques, which are
to be interactively presented at the conference.

All accepted papers will be published in the open-access proceeding of
the conference. A selection of accepted papers for the conference will
be invited to extend their submission (providing a significant
contribution beyond the conference paper) for a special issue in the
Journal of Educational Data Mining.

Submission guidelines are available at
