AIM & TOPICS
Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) has been successfully deployed in
various educational applications to enrich learning and teaching with
information-technology. The primary goal of the workshop is to bring
together experts in the field in order to share knowledge gained within
the distributed research about latent semantic analysis in educational
applications (either from the context of the IST projects Cooper,
iCamp, TenCompetence, Cooper and ProLearn, or from computer/cognitive
scientists involved in LSA-based research). The topics of this workshop
relate on the educational technology applications of LSA (e.g.,
Automated Essay Scoring) and the methodological issues raised by this
technique (e.g., corpus composition). The second edition of this
workshop, two years after the first one held at Heerlen (OUNL), has the
aim to continue the coverage of these topics, with a new emphasis on
cognitive simulation. This second edition emerges from the joint effort
of the participants of the european project LTfLL (Learning
Technologies for LifeLong Learning).
Topics should cover, but not be restricted, to
* Educational technology applications of LSA, such as:
*Jose Quesada, Max Planck Institute for Human Development,
*Official language for both papers and talks: English.
Submissions are expected in the following two formats. They should
describe substantial and unpublished work.
* Full Papers: Papers should be maximum 6 pages in length
(about 4,000 words), using an IEEE stylesheet. PDF, MS-Word are
accepted. PDF is preferred for submisssion.
* Posters: For reviewing purposes, posters are submitted as
short papers (2 pages-long, up to 1,500 word-long) using the same
stylesheet than full papers. After acceptance, authors will have to
design a poster for presenting the content of their research.
