LAK12: Sold Out!

From my experiences with conference in education, especially research conferences, selling out an event is extremely rare. Last year, when LAK11 was held in Banff, we were worried right until the conference about attendance and how much we would lose. We managed to get 100 attendees and break even. A huge relief and an excellent event. The proceedings have since been published by ACM and the session recordings are available online.

LAK12 is being held in Vancouver this year. Shane Dawson and Caroline Haythornthwaite are conference co-chairs and Dragan Gasevic and Simon Buckingham Shum are program chairs for LAK12. A few weeks ago, the conference was officially sold out with about 200 expected to attend. Amazing…and an encouraging statement of the need and interest for a research-oriented view of learning analytics. A quick scan of the conference program (.pdf) suggests an outstanding event!

While I’m not clear of the details, the conference will be streamed and recorded. More details will be posted as soon as they are available.
