OCTOBER 12-18, 2012


It is important to teachers to get idea of how their students learn; what their students have already known; what their students are not good enough or have misconception; what kind of instruction ways their students like and can learn more efficiently; and, what are their students need to know at particular moment. With the helps of computational intelligence, ontology, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, text mining, and information retrieval, smart learning environment (SLE) can be built to know the context of students, e.g., learning style, cognitive trait, competency model, behavior pattern, preference, need, and device, correctly and better by digging and analyzing variety of data; furthermore, the SLE can then provide the students personalized and adaptive learning services based on the discovered context. This symposium aims to provide researchers a platform to know the latest relevant research progress; to share experiences; to discuss key issues; and at the end, to have opportunities to work together after this event.
