The 7th International Conference
on Educational Data Mining
July 4, 2014 - July 7, 2014
Institute of Education, London, UK
We invite submissions to the 7th International Conference on Educational Data Mining (EDM2014), to be held under the auspices of the International Educational Data Mining Society on 4-7 July 2014 at the Institute of Education, London, UK. The conference is immediately preceding the 22 Conference on User Modelling (UMAP 2014) in Denmark.
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 processes. These data sets may come from the traces that students leave when they interact with learning management systems, interactive learning environments, intelligent tutoring systems, educational games or when they participate in a data-rich learning context. The types of data therefore range from raw log files to eye-tracking devices and other sensor data.
Being hosted in London, UK EDM 2014 invites us to think BIG. The theme of the conference is "Big Data - Big Ben - Education Data Mining for Big Impact in Learning and Teaching". We particularly solicit submissions that look into EDM applications with an actual impact in the future of learning and teaching. Appreciating this impact, particularly with an eye to scaling up, requires an interdisciplinary approach and the coming together of different stakeholders. EDM 2014 will therefore bring practitioners and industry representatives together with researchers from computer science, machine learning and data mining, artificial intelligence in education, intelligent tutoring systems, education, learning sciences, psychometrics, statistics and cognitive psychology.
- Conference Chairs: Manolis Mavrikis, Bruce M. McLaren
- Program Chairs: Zach Pardos, John Stamper
