EDM 2018: the 11th International Conference on Educational Data Mining
July 15-18, 2018, Buffalo, NY, United States.
Preliminary Call for Papers

Educational Data Mining is a leading international forum for high-quality
research that mines data sets to answer educational research questions that
shed light on the learning process. These data sets may originate from a
variety of learning contexts, including learning management systems,
interactive learning environments, intelligent tutoring systems,
educational games, and data-rich learning activities. Educational data
mining considers a wide variety of types of data, including but not limited
to raw log files, student-produced artifacts, discourse, multimodal streams
such as eye-tracking, and other sensor data. The overarching goal of the
Educational Data Mining research community is to better support learners by
developing data-driven understandings of the learning process in a wide
variety of contexts and for diverse learners.

Topics of interest

Topics of interest to the conference include but are not limited to.
- Deriving representations of domain knowledge from data.
- Detecting and addressing students’ affective and emotional states.
- Informing data mining research with educational theory.
- Contributing to theories of learning through data mining.
- Data mining to understand how learners interact with emerging genres of
pedagogical environments such as educational games, MOOCs, and exploratory
learning environments.
- Analyzing multimodal and sensor data.
- Using data mining methods to provide support for teachers, parents and
- Bridging data mining and learning sciences.
- Adapting state-of-the-art data mining approaches to the educational
- Building an understanding of social and collaborative learning processes
through data mining.
- Developing generic frameworks, techniques, research methods, and
approaches for educational data mining.
- Closing the loop between education data research and educational outcomes.
- Automatically assessing student knowledge.
- Evaluating the efficacy of curriculum and interventions.

Submission Types

- JEDM Journal Track Papers  - Papers submitted to the Journal of
Educational Data Mining track (and accepted before April 11th) will be
published in JEDM and presented during the JEDM track of the conference.
- Full Papers — 10 pages. Should describe original, substantive, mature,
and unpublished work.
- Short Papers — 6 pages. Should describe original, unpublished work. This
includes early stage, less developed works in progress.
- Industry Papers — 6 pages. Should describe innovative uses of EDM
techniques in a commercial setting.
- Doctoral Consortium — 2-4 pages. Should describe the
graduate/postgraduate student’s research topic, proposed contributions,
results so far, and aspects of the research on which advice is sought.
- Posters/Demos — 2-4 pages. Posters should describe original unpublished
work in progress or last-minute results. Demos should describe EDM tools
and systems, or educational systems that use EDM techniques.

JEDM track papers should be formatted according to the JEDM guidelines and
submitted to the JEDM (cf.
Other papers will be submitted at and should be formatted
using the following templates: Word (,
LaTeX (

All accepted papers will be published in the open-access proceedings of the

Workshops and Tutorials

We invite  Workshop and Tutorial proposal — 2-4 pages. Workshops should
describe an emerging subfield and the plan organizers have to build growth
in this new area. Tutorials should describe a tool or method, the
organizers and their expertise, and a plan for attendees to learn it in a
hands-on way.
