BACKGROUND AND GOALS
The workshop is related to the series of Educational data mining workshops organized in conjunction with the AAAI'05, AIED'05, ITS'06, AAAI'06, AIED'07, UM'07, and ICALT'07 conferences. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers in Data Mining, e-Learning, Intelligent Tutoring Systems and Adaptive Educational Hypermedia to discuss the opportunities of applying data mining to e-learning systems. This mix of data mining, e-learning, tutoring system and adaptive hypermedia researchers is also reflected in the program committee.
The ADML'07 workshop will provide an informal interactive setting for participants to address current methodological, research, and technical issues related to adaptation and personalization in e-learning. We intend to have a half-day or full-day workshop with 8-12 presentations followed by a panel discussion.
The main questions addressed are the following:
CALL FOR PAPERS
Recently, the increase in the dissemination of interactive learning environments has enabled the collection of huge amounts of data. A popular and effective way of discovering new knowledge from large and complex data sets is data mining. As such, the ADML workshop invites papers that study how to apply data mining to analyze data generated by learning systems or experiments, and also how discovered information can be used to improve adaptation and personalization of the learning environment. Interesting problems data mining can help to solve are: what are common types of learning behavior (e.g. in online systems), how to predict the knowledge and interests of a user based on past behavior, how to partition a heterogeneous group of users into homogeneous clusters, etc.
The ADML'07 workshop is organized in conjunction with the EC-TEL'07 conference. It aims at providing a focused international forum for researchers to present, discuss and explore the state of the art of applying data mining in e-learning and of evaluating the usefulness of discovered patterns for adaptation and personalization. The workshop will also outline promising future research directions. The ADML'07 workshop invites submissions addressing all aspects of applying data mining for adaptation and personalization in e-learning systems. The non-exhaustive list of topics of interest includes:
The workshop invites papers reporting experiences, case studies, surveys, reflections and comparisons. The submission format is on of the following: a full paper of up to 10 pages, a short paper of up to 5 pages, or an abstract for a poster of up to 3 pages.
All submissions will be handled electronically. Please submit your contribution (up to 10 pages) before the submission deadline (June 25, 2007) to the ADML'07 workshop chairs by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the workshop programme committee members. All accepted workshop papers (up to 10 pages for full papers) will be published as EC-TEL on-line workshop proceedings as part of the CEUR Workshop proceedings series. CEUR-WS.org is a recognized ISSN publication series, ISSN 1613-0073. For camera-ready format instructions, please see "For Authors" instructions at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html Authors of the selected papers will be asked to prepare revised and substantially extended papers for inclusion to a post-conference book (approval pending).
