Call for Article Submissions

Authors are invited to send original works reporting on original academic or industry research in the area of Learning Analytics that have not been submitted to or published in any other conference or journal. This conference will accept complete submissions including finished papers, working papers with preliminary results, and position papers that report new, inspiring, and intriguing ideas. Documents should have a minimum of 5 pages and maximum of 10 pages and contain a description of an original work that has not been published or accepted for publication previously and is not currently in a state of revision.
