About EDM'08

The First International Conference on Educational Data Mining brings together researchers from computer science, education, psychology, psychometrics, and statistics to analyze large data sets to answer educational research questions. The increase in instrumented educational software, as well as state databases of student test scores, has created large repositories of data reflecting how students learn.

The EDM conference focuses on computational approaches for using those data to address important educational questions. The broad collection of research disciplines ensures cross fertilization of ideas, with the central questions of educational research serving as a unifying focus.

This Conference emerges from preceding EDM workshops at the AIED (2007, 2005), EC-TEL (2007), ICALT (2007), UM (2007), AAAI (2006, 2005), and ITS (2006, 2004, 2000) conferences.

The conference will be held in UQÀM - Université du Québec à Montréal, Montreal, QC, Canada. (see more details in the Location page)
