Held in conjunction with
The 2012 IEEE Congress on Computational Intelligence (WCCI 2012)
June 10 - 15, 2012
International Convention Centre, Brisbane, Australia

Important dates: (please closely check the WCCI 2012 website for the possible update)

- Paper acceptance notification date: Feb 20, 2012
- Final paper submission deadline: Apr 2, 2012

Educational Data comes from educational settings, e.g. interactive learning environments (multiple choice questions, response time), computer aided collaborative learning (online
learning data), and administrative data (demographics, enrolment). It has the following typical characteristics: multiple levels of meaningful hierarchy (subject, assignment, and
question levels), time, sequence, context (a particular student in a particular class encountering a particular question in a particular problem on a particular computer at a
particular time on a particular date), fine-grained (record data at different resolutions to facilitate different analyses, e.g. record data every 10s) and longitudinal (large data
recorded for many sessions for a long period of time, e.g. spanning semester land year long courses).

Educational Data Mining (EDM), a newly emerging inter-disciplinary research field in the discipline of computational intelligence, focuses on Knowledge
Discovery and Data Mining techniques to analyse data from educational settings, including interactive learning systems, intelligent tutoring systems and institutional administration
data. The primary goal of EDM is to uncover scientific evidence or patterns that are useful to gain insights and explain educational phenomena. To meet the emerging research interest in educational data mining and learning analytics, this Special Session on Educational Data Mining jointly with 2012 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence
(WCCI2012) provides a leading forum for researchers to publish high quality original research papers with various topics in educational data mining and learning analytics. The topics of this special session
may include (but not limited to) cohort analysis, attribution analysis, pathway analysis, student modelling, learning and teaching behaviour analysis, learning emotion analysis,
educational psychology analysis, student performance prediction, e-learning and learning management system building, learning personalization and recommendation, learning
visualization and analysis, social network analysis in educational environment, and coursework construction.

Topics of Interest:
The EDM Special Session provides a premier forum for sharing research and engineering results, as well as potential challenges and prospects encountered in the communities of educational data mining and learning analytics. The EDM Special Session welcomes theoretical work and applied dissemination on, but not limited to:
