The LAK Dataset (see http://www.solaresearch.org/resources/lak-dataset/) 
provides access to structured metadata and full-text from research 
publications in the field of learning analytics.

Beyond merely publishing the data, we are actively encouraging its 
innovative use and exploitation as part of a public LAK Data Challenge
sponsored by the European Project LinkedUp (http://linkedup-project.eu), 
co-located with the ACM LAK13 Conference, Leuven, Belgium (April 2013).

=> Extended challenge submission deadline: February 22, 2013 (was 
February 8)
=> More info: http://www.solaresearch.org/events/lak/lak-data-challenge/


What do analytics on learning analytics tell us? How can we make sense 
of this emerging field’s historical roots, current state, and future 
trends, based on how its members report and debate their research?

Challenge submissions should exploit the LAK Dataset for a meaningful 
purpose. This may include submissions which cover one or more of the 
following, non-exclusive list of topics:

* Analysis & assessment of the emerging LAK community in terms of 
topics, people, citations or connections with other fields
* Innovative applications to explore, navigate and visualise the dataset 
(and/or its correlation with other datasets)
* Usage of the dataset as part of recommender systems

Each submission should be accompanied by a 2-4 page paper (ACM format) 
that contains at least:
* an abstract of the submission
* motivation: which purposes does your system or dataset serve?
* description of your dataset (e.g. if the LAK data is combined with 
other datasets), system or demo
* a link to your dataset and/or system or demo

Please submit via:
=> https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lakdatachallenge2013

There will be a light review by members of the challenge committee to 
pre-select submissions for presentation. During the LAK conference and
based on the presentations, the challenge winner(s) will be identified 
based on votes by the audience and the committee.

Accepted submissions will be published in online proceedings and
presented during an interactive session at the LAK 2013 conference
(http://www.lakconference2013.wordpress.com/) in Leuven, Belgium. There 
will be awards for the winning submissions:

1st prize: Apple iPad 4 64GB Wi-Fi
2nd prize: Apple iPad 2 16GB Wi-Fi
3rd prize: Apple iPod touch 4 16 GB

In addition, it is intended to feed successful submissions into 
additional challenges related to the LinkedUp project to support entries 
to further expand their work as part of the LinkedUp activities. This 
will also provide opportunities to present your work to a wider audience 
in the context of LinkedUp.
