Call for Papers -- CMLA 2018

The Second Workshop on Computational Models Learning Systems and
Educational Assessment

In conjunction with CVPR 2018, June 22, Salt Lake City, UT


To be successful in today's rapidly evolving, technology-mediated world,
students must not only possess strong skills in areas such as reading,
math, and science, but they must also be adept at "21st-century" skills
such as critical thinking, communication, problem-solving, persistence, and
collaboration. Building learning and assessment systems that facilitate the
development of such skills requires the recognition and extraction of
patterns of human behavior and activities. Advances in computer vision,
machine learning, educational data mining, and affective computing have
made it possible to analyze a much wider range of student responses and
activities. CMLA 2018 held in conjunction with CVPR 2018 provides an
excellent platform for the sharing of knowledge and ideas across
disciplines; our hope is that by bringing together the best minds in these
fields we will be able to further the state of the art and generate further
interest and excitement in this area.

Specifically, the workshop will focus on the following areas:
* Computational models of human behavior that utilize multimodal data,
including but not limited to videos and audios
* Educational learning and assessment systems that utilize machine
learning, affective computing or computer vision
* Immersive interfaces for simulation training and learning systems
including augmented, mixed and virtual reality
* Applications of multimodal systems for educational assessment, learning
systems, training and pedagogy
* Adoption or fusion of novel research in areas of vision, speech, affect
for modeling of social behaviors

* Paper Submission Deadline: March 30th, 2018
* Decisions to Authors: April 13th, 2018
* Camera-ready Deadline: May 14th, 2018
* Workshop Date: June 22, 2018

* Alina von Davier, ACT, Inc email: [log in to unmask]


CMLA 2018 is inviting high-quality papers in the areas described above. Of
particular interest are contributions that investigate multi-disciplinary
research in the areas of computer vision, machine learning and new forms of
educational learning and assessment tools. CMLA 2018 will offer two
publication formats as follows:
* Full papers (8-page limit), for original contributions incorporating
in-depth research and latest results;
* Short papers (4-page limit), for work that is in early stages and for
novel and promising ideas that can be reported
The format of the papers is the same as the CVPR main conference.
Manuscript templates can be found at the main conference website:
