First International Workshop on Educational Knowledge Management (EKM 2014)
Linköping, November 24, 2014
A halfday workshop in connection with the
19th International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management.
Call for papers
The interest in Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management for the educational domain has been growing in recent years. This can be seen in the series of conferences organised by the International Educational Data Mining Society and in papers discussing the role of knowledge management in higher education. As education is increasingly occurring online or in educational software, resulting in an explosion of data, new techniques are being developed and tested, aiming for instance to improve educational effectiveness, determine the key factors to the success of educational training, support basic research on learning, or manage educational training by satisfying the needs of a community, local industry, or professional development.
We welcome submissions reporting original research related to any problem of managing and exploring information in the educational area in schools, colleges, universities, and other academic or professional learning institutions. A non-exhaustive list of topics for the workshop includes the following:
- Educational knowledge management (EKM) and ontology
- EKM and Multi-agent systems
- Data mining and semantic web for EKM
- Educational knowledge acquisition, extraction, reuse
- Natural language processing to improve educational effectiveness
- Providing feedback to teachers and other stakeholders generated from EKM methods
- Generic frameworks, methods and approache for EKM
- Learner or student modeling
- Mining browsing or interaction data
- Mining the results of educational research
- Educational process mining
- Improving educational software
- Evaluating teaching interventions
- Integrating data mining and pedagogical theory
- Improving teacher support
- Semantic annotation to improve EKM
- Linked educational data
We solicit full papers and short papers. Full papers should be of 8-12 pages in length. Short papers should be 4-6 pages and should clearly include Short Paper with the submission. Short papers may be presented as posters or oral. You may indicate your preference with the submission. The papers must be in good English in PDF format and following the Springer Verlag LNCS style. For details see the Springer LNCS Author Instructions.
