The First Annual ACM Conference on Learning@Scale is now accepting submissions for Works-in-Progress, due January 2 at 5pm PST.

"Learning at Scale" refers to new approaches for students to learn and for teachers to teach, when engaging large numbers of students, with the requirement that the techniques involve large numbers of students (where "large" is preferably thousands of students, but can also apply to hundreds in in-person settings). Topics include, but are not limited to: Usability Studies, Tools for Automated Feedback and Grading, Learning Analytics, Analysis of Forum Data, Chat Data, and Log Data, Question Generation, Studies of Application of Existing Learning Theory, Investigation of Student Behavior and Correlation with Learning Outcomes, New Learning and Teaching Techniques at Scale.

A Work-in-Progress is a concise, 1-2 page report of recent findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work that has not yet reached a level of completion that would warrant submission of a full paper.

At the conference, all accepted Works-in-Progress will benefit from face-to-face interaction with conference attendees at one or more poster and demo sessions. A few WIPs may be selected for oral presentation in a special session. Submission of a Work-in-Progress contribution is a commitment that at least
one co-author commits to attending the conference in person if the WIP is accepted.

Works-in-Progress will be published in the ACM Digital Library,
but in a separate part of the conference proceedings from the full papers.
See the website for more details and formatting information.
