Intelligence in Education Week at Durham

Intelligence in Education Week at Durham

The Intelligence in Education Week at Durham will be hosting two major conferences: 

EDM 2022: The 15th International Conference on Educational Data Mining, 24 -27 of July 2022, Durham 

EDM 2022 is the 15th iteration of the Educational Data Mining Conference Series. EDM is a leading international forum for high-quality research that mines datasets to answer educational research questions, including exploring how people learn and how they teach. These data may originate from a variety of learning contexts, including learning and information 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 log files, student-produced artifacts, discourse, learning content and context, sensor data, and multi-resource and multimodal streams. The overarching goal of the Educational Data Mining research community is to support learners and teachers more effectively, by developing data-driven understandings of the learning and teaching processes in a wide variety of contexts and for diverse learners.


AIED 2022: The 23rd International Conference on Artificial Intelligence in Education, 27-31 July, Durham University, UK

The conference theme is: AI in Education: Bridging the gap between academia, business, and non-profit in preparing future-proof generations towards ubiquitous AI.

The conference sets the ambitious goal to stimulate discussion on how AI shapes and can shape education for all sectors, how to advance the science and engineering of intelligent interactive learning systems, and how to promote broad adoption. Engaging with the various stakeholders – researchers, educational practitioners, businesses, policy makers, as well as teachers and students – the conference will set a wider agenda on how novel research ideas can meet practical needs to build effective intelligent human-technology ecosystems that support learning.

AIED is the next in a longstanding series of international conferences for high quality research in intelligent systems and cognitive science for educational computing applications (Core A ranked). It is run by the prestigious International AIED Society (International AIED Society ( The conference provides opportunities for the cross-fertilisation of approaches, techniques and ideas from the many fields that comprise AIED, including computer science, cognitive and learning sciences, data mining, education, game design, psychology, sociology, linguistics, as well as domain-specific areas. Since the first AIED meeting over 30 years ago, both the breadth of the research and the reach of the technologies have expanded in dramatic ways. Starting with AIED 2013, there is a category for Industry Papers that explore the challenges, solutions, and results from the transition of AIED technologies to the commercial sector.
