Call for Papers: The Second Workshop on Natural Language Processing in Support of Learning

The workshop will take place in Bucharest, on September 14th 2010. Papers submission deadline: Saturday, 26th of June 2010. The registration for the workshop is free. Webpage: http://k-teams.cs.pub.ro/~nlpsl/

The Second Workshop on Natural Language Processing in Support of Learning: Metrics, Feedback and Connectivity is organised under the FP7 LTfLL Project (www.ltfll-project.org)

The purpose of this workshop is to focus on using language technologies in support of learning and teaching – by trying to identify what questions and problems are solved, but also to raise and discuss how well the metrics and algorithms developed assist in the provision of support and the construction of feedback for learning. What are the most efficient ways? To what extent do they match distances inferred by a teacher’s assessments? The workshop addresses the problem of how support can be provided and feedback be generated in order to help students learn and teachers to assess their progress.

Several Natural Language Processing techniques like Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) or the use of semantic and pragmatic analysis of conversations have been successfully deployed in various educational applications to enrich learning and teaching with information technology. However, few research approaches considered also in detail the problem of providing feedback.
