The International Educational Data Mining Society was founded in July 2011, by the International Working Group on Educational Data Mining. The Society is incorporated as a non-profit corporation in the State of Massachusetts. It has a non-profit tax-exempt status under U.S. Tax Code 501(c)(3) and has been classified by the IRS as a private charity with Status 509(a)(2).

The Society will work towards increasing opportunities for participation and input from the broader EDM community, and maintaining scientific quality and our community’s core values and focus, while setting up an organization that can function smoothly, indefinitely.
