The high volume of information in organizations has led researchers to focus on knowledge management as a form of competitive and success leverage. The interest in KM for the educational domain has been growing in recent years as a strategic planning for its sustainable development. The use of the KM in education can lead for instance to develop strategies to improve teaching effectiveness and student retention, making decisions, analyze the importance of social media and games in learning, generate exam’s questions from text files, or provide student guidance. For this edition, we welcome submissions reporting original research that explores how KM technologies can solve problems related to the management and analysis of educational information in academic or professional learning institutions

We welcome papers describing original work applied to education with a special focus this edition on recommender systems. A non-exhaustive list of topics for the workshop includes the following:
  • Recommender systems in educational domain
  • Educational knowledge management and ontologies
  • Educational data mining
  • Educational linked data and semantic web
  • Knowledge acquisition, extraction and reuse in education
  • Artificial intelligence, robotics and human-computer interaction in education
  • Natural language processing to improve educational effectiveness
  • Providing feedback to teachers and other stakeholders generated from EKM methods
  • Learner or student modelling
  • Learning analytics
  • Educational information systems
