Educational Data Mining in Computer Science Education (CSEDM) Workshop:

In conjunction with EDM 2018 at The University at Buffalo, New York, United States

July 15th. 2018

The objective of this workshop is to facilitate a discussion among our research community around Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Computer Science Education. The workshop is meant to be an interdisciplinary event. Researchers, faculty and students are encouraged to share their data mining approaches, methodologies and experiences where AI is transforming the way students learn Computer Science (CS) skills.

Check out the workshop, we look forward to your submissions!

Thank you for making CSEDM 2018 a success!
