Call For Papers

About the Conference
Educational Data Mining is a leading international forum for high-quality research that mines
data sets to answer educational research questions that shed light on the learning process.
These data sets may originate from a variety of learning contexts, including learning
management systems, interactive learning environments, intelligent tutoring systems,
educational games, and data-rich learning activities. Educational data mining considers a wide
variety of types of data, including but not limited to raw log files, student-produced artifacts,
discourse, multimodal streams such as eye-tracking, and other sensor data. The overarching
goal of the Educational Data Mining research community is to better support learners by
developing data-driven understandings of the learning process in a wide variety of contexts and
for diverse learners.
University at Buffalo, New York, United States.
Topics of interest
Topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to.
● Deriving representations of domain knowledge from data.
● Detecting and addressing students’ affective and emotional states.
● Informing data mining research with educational theory.
● Contributing to theories of learning through data mining.
● Data mining to understand how learners interact with emerging genres of pedagogical
environments such as educational games, MOOCs, and exploratory learning environments.
● Analyzing multimodal and sensor data.
● Using data mining methods to provide support for teachers, parents and policy makers.
● Bridging data mining and learning sciences.
● Adapting state-of-the-art data mining approaches to the educational domain.
● Building an understanding of social and collaborative learning processes through data
● Developing generic frameworks, techniques, research methods, and approaches for
educational data mining.
● Closing the loop between education data research and educational outcomes.
● Automatically assessing student knowledge.
● Evaluating the efficacy of curriculum and interventions.
