Description of the event content

CSCL is an interdisciplinary field that integrates researchers with one common goal: support new learning experiences where students can interact mediated by technology and learn through exploration, discussion and self-regulation. To support collaboration is a complex issue due to the context of group learning where the synergy among learners’ interactions affect the learning processes and  outcomes.  This problem has become more evident with the emergence of Web technologies that allow people to work and learn collaboratively. In this context, Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques, ontologies and semantic technologies can be instrumental to handle the development of intelligent support systems that help teachers and students. For teachers, intelligent support offers better ways to create and run CL activities and analyze students’ interactions. Students can receive intelligent guidance that stimulates the emergence and occurrence of productive interactions. However, to accomplish the development of intelligent systems for CSCL, we need to re-think about the state-of-the-art in AI and semantic technologies and push the research trends in CSCL towards the new generation of technologically sophisticated systems/methods to enhance/improve collaborative learning.  This workshop aims at bringing together researchers from AI, semantic web and CSCL communities to think and share the vision of the next generation of systems that can support collaboration in educational settings. The main theme of this workshop is to discuss about the next generation of intelligent systems and semantic technologies that will be useful to support collaborative learning. We are especially interested in topics that enhance current CSCL support systems in architectural, technological and philosophical levels, such as:
- Architectures, frameworks and systems to design CSCL environments
- Tools and languages to support CSCL scripts
- Intelligent systems for CSCL (data mining, distributed systems, user interface, etc)
- AI in CSCL: ontologies, agent technology
- Semantic Web technologies to support CL
- Leveraging Social Semantic Web in CL
- Innovative ways to analyze students’ interactions
- New approaches for group/individual assessment
- User modeling for CSCL.
We hope to give participants the opportunity to:
- Investigate and discuss new architectures, systems and techniques that explore the full potential of CSCL environments 
- Gain an understanding about the current research in AI and Semantic Web technologies within CSCL contexts
- Investigate the development of intelligent and innovative support systems for CSCL and draw the research directions and agenda to create the next generation of intelligent systems for CSCL.

Description of the event format

All papers will first be reviewed by the program committee, and then opened to the public together with the comments of the reviewers. Everyone interested in the topic will be invited to comment on the review of the papers and make their own review or comments on the Web site, Finally, authors of the papers with the best evaluation from the committee and from the community will be invited to present their papers.  During the event, papers will be presented (15 min each); after each presentation, groups will be formed for discussion (10 min), followed by a round of feedback and Q&A (10 min). The results of this collaboration will be published on the website.
