Read the COVID-19 official statement regarding LASI Spain 2020
Learning Analytics has been called to improve learning practice by transforming the ways we develop and carry out learning and teaching activities and processes. The Horizon Report 2019 considers Learning Analytics a technology ready for short-term adoption, a signal of the maturity this area has reached in a relatively short period of time. However, many challenges still remain to reach all the potential benefits attributed to this field, and there exist open debates regarding the evolution of learning analytics and its consequences on learning and on the educational system overall.
The ninth edition of the Learning Analytics Summer Institute Spain 2020 (LASI Spain 2020) (http://lasi20.snola.es), organized by the Universidad de Valladolid and SNOLA (Spanish Network of Learning Analytics) (http://snola.es), is part of the global LASI network (https://www.solaresearch.org/events/lasi), conceived as a platform to catalyze educators, technologists, researchers, enterprise and policymakers around shaping the next generation of learning infrastructures to truly serve the needs now facing the education sector.
The Call for Papers of LASI Spain 2020 invites researchers across the globe to submit original research and work in progress that further contributes to advances in the field.
LASI Spain 2020 welcomes both quantitative and qualitative work related to the topics of interest within the broad theme of adoption of learning analytics, and aims to cross interdisciplinary boundaries that help expanding our understanding of current and future trends in learning analytics.
LASI Spain 2020 aims to address state-of-the-art advances in learning analytics, and to gather multidisciplinary but complementary approaches from different fields, such as Computer Science, Data Science, Mathematics, Education, Sociology and Psychology. This Call for Papers is open for submissions covering the following topics:
Research papers and doctoral consortium submissions will be handled through EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lasi2020). Apart from the Doctoral Consortium submissions, all papers will be reviewed through a double blind review process, i.e., the papers should not include any information about the authors and should be in English.
Workshop/tutorial proposals can be delivered through the form available at https://snola.es/2020/03/09/lasi-spain-2020-workshop-proposals/
Submissions must strictly follow Springer Conference Proceedings guidelines for contributions (https://www.springer.com/gp/authors-editors/conference-proceedings/conference-proceedings-guidelines).
Accepted research papers will be published the Conference Proceedings, via CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS).
